New guy to the forum - 2016 - 570 Sportsman

Owner of a 570 Sportsman for two years and really live the way it gets me around the Arkansas Ozarks at deer camp. Had a question maybe someone out there could help with. My rig is the 570 SP with the original 14" tires - 26 x 8 x 14 front and 26 x 10 x 14 rear. Wanting to get a more aggressive tire to install on the same alloy wheels and was thinking of the Sedona Rip Saw 26 x 9 x 14 front and 26 x 11 x 14 rear - Question- Should I add maybe 1" or 1.5" wheel spacers to give my rig a wider stance with more stability in the steep mountain terrain ?

Welcome all advice!
Thanks
William

I wouldn't add any more width then necessary. In your case you don't need spacers for those tires.

Thanks for the advice - I was thinking that the spacers might extend the wheels out to far.

Yeah it will and that'll put additional stress a strain on the suspension and steering components.
