I have the 2" spacers on my Maverick. They certainly made it more stable in the dunes. I had my suspension set up good but now with the spacer's I need to stiffen it back up. The extra width made it noticeably softer. With 2" spacers it is the same width as my Teryx which has +5 LT.What does everyone think of wheel spacers? Anyone use them I would love to get some feedback good or bad.
Never actually used them myself but there's no denying that spacers will move vulnerable brake components to where they are more exposed to damage. Of course the degree of that depends on the thickness of the spacer. Even trail riding kicks stuff up that can get into the parts. But you may never have a problem. Most people don't have trouble but it does increase the risk. The only other issue I've heard of from others is the added stress the spacers put on the wheel bearings. By moving the wheel further from the bearing you apply more force due to the increased in leverage. Again, most people have no problems but there are some who have had failures that they will attribute to the spacers. Different offset wheels are no different. I don't really have anything against spacers but I don't think I'd use them for desert/trail riding myself. Running the dunes would be a different story where the benefit of the extra width would make it all worth it to me.Max I dont do a any rock crawling just trail riding and soon to be moving to vegas next month do will be almost all desert riding. Is that yur only worry is rocky terrain?
