If you’re looking for a way to stabilize your Can-Am Defender, lower its center of gravity, or create room in the wheelbase for larger and more aggressive tires, some Can-Am Defender wheel spacers will help. And while accessories like portals can also be used to widen your machine's stance, portal gear boxes provide lift and gear reductions that some riders don’t want or need — as well as being quite pricey for many Can-Am owners. So if you want greater stability after installing a bracket lift, or need to put a few inches between your suspension components and your mud tires, Can-Am Defender wheel spacers are the way to go. And no matter if it’s a set of 1” Can-Am Defender wheel spacers that you’re after, 1.5” Can-Am Defender wheel spacers, or 2” Can-Am Defender wheel spacers, at Everything Can-Am Offroad, we offer everything from front Can-Am Defender wheel spacers and rear Can-Am Defender wheel spacers to full-blown wheel spacer kits for all four wheels on any Can-Am Defender, Can-Am Defender MAX, or Can-Am Defender XMR!
While Can-Am Defender wheel spacers are great for mudders and swamp riders who like having their wheels track on different paths, Can-Am Defender wheel spacers are also helpful for farmers who use their side-by-sides for work-related purposes and agricultural projects. Aftermarket suspension setups -- or the stock suspension system on the Lonestar and XMR Defender editions -- are much wider than the base-model Defenders, so if you want to go super wide with your rig’s stance, these options are more appropriate than Can-Am Defender wheel spacers. But if you only need an inch or two on each side, running wheel spacers and some offset rims can easily get you there. Wheel spacers are the perfect accessory to customize your machine’s dimensions so that it fits down soybean or corn rows. However, if you’re doing things like stacking wheel spacers to get a wider stance, you’re definitely going to chowder your wheel bearings and ball joints more often than normal. All else being equal though, if you stick to the standard 1-2” spacer sets installed according to proper torque specifications, your wheel bearings won’t wear noticeably faster than they would without Can-Am Defender wheel spacers.
Can-Am Defender wheel spacers are a simple yet effective way to achieve a wide variety of ends. They are practical accessories to run in a number of situations, and make sense when compared to the factory wheels that come with little to no offset. Companies like SuperATV, Rough Country, and UTV Inc make great wheel spacers and wheel adapters for the Can-Am Defender. A lot of Can-Am Defender wheel spacers and wheel adapters are constructed using aluminum, but you can also procure steel wheel spacers for the Can-Am Defender as well. If you’re running rims designed for the factory Can-Am Defender bolt pattern and lug size (4x137 and 10x1.25) you’ll need Can-Am Defender wheel adapters to run wheels made for 4x156 bolts with 12x1.5 studs. But regardless of whether you’re running Can-Am Defender wheel adapters or Can-Am Defender wheel spacers, make sure to tighten them down securely and apply Loctite to the bolts!
By moving the tires out further from the machine with Can-Am Defender wheel spacers, you’ll make the existing camber of your wheels more noticeable. So if you’ve installed Can-Am Defender wheel spacers / adapters and your tires are now tilting toe-in or toe-out, you can realign the steering / suspension components or get yourself some PCF adjustable upper arms. Although wheel spacers can put added stress on the suspension components, they don’t just add camber that didn’t exist beforehand. That being said, by moving the hubs forward and leaving the same length on the tie rods, your wheels will become more toe-in.
No matter what you seek, be it a 4 lug to 5 lug wheel adapter to use LT tires, a 156 to 137 rim adapter to run non-conforming bolt patterns, or a set of Can-Am Defender wheel spacers for a wider stance and a lower center of gravity, we’ve got what you crave here at Everything Can-Am Offroad! You can put 1.5” wheel spacers on the front of your rig with 2” wheel spacers on the back, or keep things consistent with a mere 1” wheel spacer setup all around. Use Can-Am Defender wheel spacers to help your rig pull better with non-aligned tire tracking, or use Can-Am Defender wheel adapters to run wheels from another UTV brand. Whatever it is, we’ll sort you out with the highest-quality products for the lowest prices around here at Everything Can-Am Offroad!

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, High Lifter, and SuperATV 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 its 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!
