Some say they will increase bearing wear but I don't know about that. I have a set installed on a Rzr . Changed front bearing at 1400 miles and now the backs need changed at 2000 miles. I have friends who have a lot less miles on their rzrs and they have had to change bearings long before I did.

My opinion on my Grizzly is that roll overs hurt more than bearing replacements, running 5" wider than stock on the ATV.

What are you wanting to install spacers on? RZR S or standard RZR?

The 26x12x12x bighorn tires rub on the right side motor mount so I need to move them out a little to fit.

So wheel spacers then, just make sure you get a quality billet spacer and you'll be ok.

Spacers will fix the rear from rubbing on the motor mount but they may cause your front tires to rub more --it changes the turning radius of the front tires with in the fender well and will rub. You will also notice that your steering will suffer somewhat...
