Rear wheel spacers

I'm looking at widening my rear width by 1.5 inches on either side. Has anyone had any luck with this? Does it make any improvements or just a waste of money. Thanks guys

why not just go with the 10" rear wheels?

stay away from spacers and go with 4-3 10 inch spacers are only good for show not working in the field!

I had 1 1/4" spacers on the stock rear wheels.. it improved handling and helped with the ability to slide..
Finally gone for the 10" wheels on the back which also widen the rear.
I tried the spacers on the front and the handling is even better, although the steering is also heavier..
I do have the l8yton anti sway bar too..

So it sounds like they are worth while. I just ordered a set of kutters for my stock rear rims so 10 rims are not in the future for me. I also have to watch how wide I go cause I do a lot of tight trail riding. I dunno if an 1 1/2 on each side would even make a noticable difference? Probably just a waste of 50 bucks?

Not necessary if you're staying with stock dimensions.

BTW, never use spacers in the front.

Because ??
people say more strain on the components, but i weight 70kg..
so someone who weighs 140 kg rides a stock front end.. which one really has the more strain on components ?
It is very common in the uk for front spacers to be used as many quads are ridden on the road.. I,ve been on quad forums for over 10 years and have yet to come across anyone who has had mechanical failure due to spacers !

A pair of wheels in uk, $220 A pair of spacers $75..

Spacers on the front are fine on the road , just makes the steering a little heavy. If you want to race with them then , I hope you have carbon fibre wrists.
