    Anybody running wheel spacers? I want to run 2" spacers. I have heard it put too much strain on the
    wheel bearings. Seems like deep mag wheels do the same thing. What do you all think?

    The more dish or offset you have, the more strain on the bearing. Deep dished wheels can cause premature bearing failure, although when I was young and building hot rods, I never had a bearing fail me because of deep dished wheels. Just lucky? Maybe. Just curious; why do you want to run spacers? Just to get he wheel out farther or for clearance purposes?

    Hey Dchad, have you tried those 2" spacers yet? I'm curious to find out how they're working out for you. I'd like to have a little wider stance for my Ranger too

    I am running 2" on mine, although I am ready for it if the bearings or ball joints go. So, it does put more stress onto the front end. The plus side, they looks so darn good with stock wheels!
