I have been using magic Racing billit wheel spacers for two years in Baja with 0 problems. 1" on each side in the front and 2" on each side in the rear. The total cost was 180$. my son also has the same setup. We are not jumpers but the terrain in very rocky and rough. These are solid vs stud extenders. I know some are for these and some are not but for us they work. My .02.

I own G-Force spacers, and have been pleased with them. I have a G-Force axle sitting in my garage I need to put on. The spacers did make a difference in the way my ride handled.

I have ITP wheels that widen the front 2 inches, and they were only $20.
I wouldnt get spacers, maybe hubs..


To get the pic you just put an image code in your signature..

What wheels are they? Model? $20 dollars, where? Do they make them for the rear also?

Get them at rocky mountain atv.  :thumbs:  I got them on the front accidentally when i bought front sand tires. they are much wider. My rears are not, thus I need the spacers. offset will be stated as  "5.0+3.0" or 6.0 +2.0 etc.

links don't work. BUt I am pretty sure you are rferring to the extended studs. WHich I think are OK if you do not ride too hard, they put alot of stress on your hubs and lugs. I am getting some for the dunes for the rear only for my 660.

Here are the links again, they should work now:

Take a look, I think I'll be fine I'm just a basic rider having fun, no jumping or racing or anything to serious!

Thanks guys, Sunny!

I should be fine with the extender's you are saying right? Just stud extender's. I think I'm going to buy them.

I think you would be fine, unless you are a giant sasquatch lookin mofo. And you're not doing mx jumps any time soon. And I still think putting them on the front is not such a good idea. But the ones in your link are only 1.5 inch, so not so bad. Let us know what you think if you get them. And...you're on a 350 not a big bore. good luck.

Alex, have'nt we had this conversation before?  :rofl: maybe another site?  :grin_nod:

my sand tires don't match. my fronts are 2 inches further offset, I did not like it for the sand at all, could not slide or get any good sidehill roost shots. Reare tires just dig in. Probably not as bad on hard ground.
