Well I am in the process of fixing up my Sportsman 500. Which wheel spacers are the best, and do they have the same stock stud sizes?? And is there nay chance spacers can mess my ride up? Thanks

Adding spacers may stop you from access through some areas. Personally I don't care for spacers as You are adding someplace for the nuts to come loose and as they are out of view probably won't get checked, also I feel they add a bit of stress to the bearings as the weight is not carried as designed. I do not care for spacers, but that is just my opinion.

Are you adding bigger tires and need clearance?

Well where I live it's all hillside. So I should gain stability, and it looks pretty sweet. But If they dont have the same stock stud sizes I will do without them.

They were actually about an 1/8" longer over stock.
