trying to get all the opinins i can on this. anyone ever feel if there on a side ways rut they may tip over, or do these stay upright pretty well, commander 1000 i mean.

even at sharp sideways angles. or do u feel 1.5 inch wheel spacers make a huge diffeence? i would really prefer not to use spacers unless the tipping risk is real high. if u do use them, what is best, which brand,etc. thanks

Spacers will help lessen the feel of and actual tipping over because of more stability ....the 2 downsides of them are mainly the width increase for narrower trail riding and paying for them.....lol

I have had mine on 2wheels and never went over. The only time I ever had butt factor was going down a very steep rock trail that I felt the ass was going to swap with the front ..flop ass over tea kettle...but we ride mainly dunes too

It does feel unstable with the stock setup to me. After adding the 2" spacers all was good in the world and not getting the back wheels off the ground any more.

Thanks FactoryUTV.

I would but I didn't get paddles yet. I was going to buy a extra set of X rims and put some sand tires on those and use the spacers. Seller backed out after deal was made, next time.
I have +3 TurnkeyUTV CX3 LT coming so that with spacers on the X rims should be nice on the sand.

What do you think, I have not been to the dunes?

I haven't had a problem yet in the sand with my stock ones, but ran my paddles a few weeks ago I believe they are 5+2 and I'm I am diffently wider no problem cutting and also doing 360*, Lance & I were playing cat & mouse and the only problem would be if/when I catch a rut I would go over...
