Anyone running a wheel spacers on stock width axles? Thought it was bad to run them since its possible that they increase stress on bearings.

They do exert more lateral load on the wheel bearings but fortunately you have a cruiser and everything is over built, therefore you can run them a long time before you notice anything. If you ever do.

Spacer

I have ran a spacer on mine since i got it the offset on my rims put them a little too close to the tie rod end. 1/4" works out perfect for me and i have never had any problems. Just make sure that you have enough thread on your lugs mine ended up being a little shorter than I would like. I ran the hell out of it and they are still good.

I run 2" alum spacers on the front & rear - *never a problem. I like the wider track width & less of the rubbing possibilities. No problems with the trunion bearings either.
