Wheel spacers?

I wanna put wheel spacers on my 05 brute because of it bein so tippsey. I've already tipped er` over once and wanna prevent this as much as possible. I've on some threads that some guys only run em` on the front because of some knuckle issues so I was needin some advice on what to do?

I have 1.5" HL spacers on all four corners and love 'em...However, I am about to put 2+5 offset rims on so I can remove the spacers...With the different offset rims I will actually be a little wider than I am with the spacers...I have never had any trouble with knuckles or anything else and I do give her hell

I run the 1" on all four corners and I like the look and stance it gives me. I just wish I had went wider like 1.5 or 2.0.

I ran 1" spacers for about a year with the 30" Mudzillas, then I went up to 2" to gain alittle more stability...been running the 2" for about a year now. I have had no problems so far.

1" spacers



2" spacers

JCT, I'm in this same situation - 29.5 10s and 12s on an 09 brute IRS. I'm looking for rims with offset so I dont have to buy spacers. When I research rims (like on mudthrowers site), i think it is saying that the 2+5 rims are for the rear only and the 5+2 are for the front or rear. It seams that I want the wider offset rims front and back. Wouldn't I want 2+5 on all four corners? Wont that give me the wider stance that i need to fit these tires without using spacers?

The wider you go no the front, whether you use spacers or more offset, the heavier the steering will be and the bigger the turning radius. The way Big Easy did it is a good compromise.
