Today I installed new 'SuperATV 1" Wheel Spacers' on our 2018 Teryx2 800.

First off, I want to thank SuperATV for the discount code for this order. SATV is second to none when it comes to customer communication and same-day shipping!

I always thought our Teryx2 looked a little narrow in the front. The front track width is about 2" narrower than is the back track width. In stock form, our Teryx had a tendency to understeer some times. I thought by widening the front a little it might help correct the understeer (not tested yet) some. I decided to add wheel spacers to the front only so the front & rear track width would be about the same.

Wheel spacers are pretty simple to install and I am sure anyone can understand how they are added. Just be sure to add a little thread-lock to the OEM studs that mount the wheel spacer to the hub. Only about half the threads on the stud are used by the lug-nut (see pics).

The only other thing I want to add is that SuperATV 1" wheel spacers are not actually 1" wide (see pics). The actual width of the advertised 1" wheel spacers are 1-3/16" wide. The reason for the added width is so the lug-nuts that mount the spacer to the hub do not stick-out past flush with the face of the wheel spacer. I guess I can deal with the added width I wasn't expecting..., what choice do I have anyway, right? :giggle:


SuperATV 1" Wheel Spacers.


Add some thread-lock before mounting the wheel spacer.


SuperATV 1" wheel spacers are actually 1-3/16" wide.


If the wheel spacers where actually 1" wide the lug-nuts would stick-out past flush.


This is the how the wheel spacers look with the wheel mounted on them.


I like the wider stance our Teryx has now with the 1" wheel spacers!


As you can see in this photo, the front & rear track width are about the same now.

I added two more photos to the post above. The new photos show the wider stance of our Teryx with the SuperATV 1" (actually 1-3/16") wheel spacers. Also, the front & rear track width are now about equal.

As for turning..., it's hard to say yet as I just went for a short 'rip' out behind the house in the snow. Maybe it's my imagination, but the front didn't seem to 'tuck' when diving into a hard turn like it did in stock form.

I need more 'wheel' time to form an opinion about any turning change with the wider front track???

The wider stance with the flares looks good. Update us after you put some miles on it.

I will update as I get more feel for the wider front end. However, how it feels right now is going to change shortly as I am going to put 28s on the 'buggy' shortly. :cool:
