Was wanting some advice on whether or not to get wheel spacers for my brute. If i do get them, whats is the best width? Its not lifted right now, but in the future I would like a lift and possible upgrade to a little bigger tire. Thanks!

Clearence is more important than width and spacers are not good on wheel bearings IMO.

Mine is def more stable. The wheel spacers make a really big diffence as far as her tippin..and she gets sideways so much better.

well i decided to go with 1.5" spacers! Love the difference! very stable, handles better and looks much better with the wider stance!!

I put 1 inch spacers on my 650i it made the difference in keeping this atv. It is far more stable on off camber terrain. Obviously the other posts love there`s too. As to how wide that would depend on how high you are going to go. I went 1 inch which gave me 2 inches overall, but I am running stock size tires and no lift.

Can anyone tell me where to get hub centric spacers? I know some of them have clearance for the wheel centering tabs on the newer brutes, but does anyone make spacers with a lip on the outside edge as well to center the wheel?

Assuming you are using a quality spacer, this puts no more additional stress on wheel bearings than an offset wheel of the same amount.

I have a 2012 brute force with 30 inch silverbacks and just bought 1" spacers and I can't run them in front because it will hit my fenders

I have 27" Zillas with 1.5" spacers.....this combo is way better than stock.
