Wheel/tire help needed
I have a 2013 RZR 800 trail. The stock tires finally were ready for replacing. I was given a set of RZR 14" rims that fit my RZR. I never thought to check the offset on them. Anyway, I bought a set of 27X9X14 and 27X11X14 tires, got them mounted...all before doing any test fitting. I know, pretty stupid.
Anyway, the fronts fit ok, but my 50" width is now actually only 49". I can live with that, but would prefer them to give me the same 50" (fits perfectly between fenderwells in the bed of my truck). Haven't found any 1/2" spacers (yet).
Now, on the rear there is a much different result. On the right side, the tire is hitting the engine mount and on the left side, it is hitting the frame. I'm pretty sure, if I didn't have the extra offset, I might be ok.
Anyway, I'm thinking to use 2" spacers on the rear. Are there any reason(s) not to? Any horror stories? Will I be putting too much strains on important components?
