If you’re looking for a way to stabilize your Can-am Defender, lower its center of gravity, or create room in the wheel base for larger and more aggressive tires, some Can-am Defender wheel spacers will help. And while portals can also widen your machines stance, they also provide lift that some riders don’t want or need — as well as being quite pricy for many Can-am owners. Wheel spacers are especially helpful for farmers who use their side-by-sides for work purposes. If you want to customize your machine to fit down soy bean or corn rows, you can use wheel spacers to fine-tune your rigs dimensions. If you need to increase your UTV’s width by large amounts, the Lonestar or XMR suspensions are wider than the base model. But if you only need an inch or two on each side, running wheel spacers and some offset rims can easily get you there. If you’re doing things like stacking wheel spacers to get a wider stance, you’re definitely going to chowder your bearings and ball joints more often than normal, but if you stick to the standard 1-2” spacer set with proper torquing specifications, your bearings won’t wear noticeably faster than they would without spacers.
Some Can-am riders like to have different widths on the front and back of their UTVs, while others prefer everything to be equal. If you want to even the rear width up with the front on the Lonestar/XMR, a 1.5” wheel spacer in the rear does the trick — that is, if the offset on the wheel, spring tension, and lift are equal. Side-by-side companies like QuadBoss, SuperATV, and Highlifter are known for their durable Can-am Defender wheel spacers, and other companies like Moose and Rock Trix are great too! Some people think that because of running different widths on the front and back of their UTV, each set will always be digging it’s own track and garbing fresh terrain to keep the buggy moving forward. But unless you’re running something ridiculously impossible like 10” spacers, 99-100% of the mud, dirt, and other material on the ground that your rear wheels are going through is what your fronts just went through. Whether you’re wanting to change your rides width or gain the ability to run wheels with non-matching bolt patterns, a set of Can-am Defender wheel spacers from Everything Can-Am Offroad will make it happen!
