Wheel spacers do make a difference in other UTV's. I personally feel the Teryx does not need it and that is after doing some serious driving on a test track pushing someone elses Teryx past it's limits!!

When you go aftermarket wheels you will get a slightly wider stance anyway.

Do wheel spacers compromise the strength of the wheel / hub or cv components? I just run them on the back, but I was thinking that maybe they put too much stress on the hubs and cv's if you do hardpack whooped out riding. I don't want to damage anything or cause premature wear, I was thinking of taking them off for that reason. I didn't like them on the front. It was harder to steer with 2 inch spacers and it steered slower in my opinion.

I've run a couple of configurations and there's a diference. Just sort of depends on what you expect and if you have stock wheels. If you want to get into power slides and flat tracking in the loose stuff, there's a lot of difference especially in right hand turns. If you get in a lot of off camber stuff w/ a 4seat higher cg set up, it helps to feel more confident.

HW is right though.. I'm not sure it's that necessary compared to say a rhino which to me feels much more unstable. With that said, I left mine on

On the front, it can increase the bump steer and you may or may not like them.

If the trails are tight, I wouldn't run them. I can't see how it would help if it's tight already and you can't hang the backend way out.

Either way, you can still roll it! I'm sure it is adding additional stress no matter how you ride. When I run them, it's for safety purposes so I don't worry about the CVs
