Spacer Question

So being a newbie to the Rhino I get the Yamaha spacers from the dealer because I can. I planned on adding them to the rear for extra stability for when my daughter drives it. It dawned on me that I have ITP C-Series Type 7 14x7 - 5+2 that are 1.5" wider than the front. I fear the spacers may add too much right ?

Check you width differances from the front and rear to keep the track the tires run in the same. I run 1" up front and 2" rear with stock rims. Also the rearend is narrower than the front to begin with hence the offset in the rims.

That's kinda my point , if I had stock wheels the 2" spacers in rear would make sense. But I have aftermarket wheels that already space front and rear out some with rear being 1.5" wider than front. I thought for better stability and ease of steering you wanted rears a little wider not matched ?

I'm thinking I should probably leave it as is , as it's wider than stock and anymore will certainly stress wheel bearings etc. 2" added to front would mess me up again as that makes fronts wider again like stock wheels

Myself I like them the same width, if not what you just miss with your front tires you will hit with the rear. It's all personal prefrence.

I too have ITP wheels. I put the 2" spacers on the rear and whatever size it was to even up the front. The front spacers I bought were low quality and just rolled around without centering themselves. I ended up machining the 30 degree bevel so I could use tapered seat lug nut's. It worked fine.

Ok I might look at doing the fronts too if I add the OEM rear spacers. Good point about clearing front and not rear Rhino Rat.
