Let me know what you come up with, I'm looking to add Duratracs. I haven't done a level kit or lift yet but like the appeal and function of the Duras.

I've heard people say this before, but my simple mind still doesn't see it. How is it any different than running a wheel that sticks the tire and wheel out any further?

I was reading on a forum that with 275's it is only about 65lb more of wear and tear that you are putting on them, the G's on turns is where the most wear happens.


It's not going to happen overnight, you might do 100k or more before something happens, or you might have a defective bearing that goes out anyway.

It's your truck mate, I've seen videos of ball bearings being replaced and it's not that hard, I just haven't done it.

They do have an effect, but as to what degree no body knows.

no different. changing track width will add wear sure, that's agreed, but not more wear with spacers than with wheels with an offset that pushes them out 1.5" it's the change in track width that does it, not the method.

I'm not sure where you got either 45 or 90 degrees from, maybe my math is very rusty or my eyesight and estimation skills are completely missing but i don't think anything related to my spacer install is or was at either angle.

Many of the guys running really wide are on huge tires, with huge flexi sidewalls too, which would really exaggerate that added stress, and I haven't heard a ton of bearing failure stories yet. These are stock size tires with the smallest factory sidewall available on the canyon in 2015. So again, not worried.

Here's a better diagram, with measurements etc. After decreasing the offset by 45mm the hub mounting point is almost dead center of the rim. they are inch and a half spacers, not foot and a half.

I'm not disagreeing with you at all that widening your track width from the hub increases wear--that's a given. My point though, is that HOW you widen the track width from the hub is irrelevant (ie if it's via less offset or a wheel spacer). You may still be right, but I just don't see how mechanically and physically it's any different.

Exactly what I was trying to say.

Did you have to shave or cut them down, and how big of a chore is that?


Is anyone running the 1.25 " spacers ?
1.25" I think would keep me insider my fenders, maybe, I do have the OEM wheel flairs with OEM Rim's.

Looks great! I was contemplating doing the same. Any rub with the wheels/tires?

None at all. It was pretty close to the factory mudflaps while turning and going up a decent incline at once, but never actually touched. Quite happy with these.

About how far out past the fenders are your 1.5's. Looking that the front fender by the picture it looks like over an inch at the front of the fender, maybe half inch at the top center of the fender and maybe 1/ 4" at the back. Then the rear tires look more like 1/4 in all around. Do you have sort of feel for rather 1.25 spacer would bring them back inside or flush.

they poke about 1/2" at the top, I bet 1.25's with the oem flares would be pretty much flush at the top.

Do you have any pictures from farther away? Contemplating these for Xmas :) Have a canyon SLT and want to see what it looks like aside from a straight down the side view.

I ended up buying both a set a 1" and a set of 1.25s. after playing around with them looks like the 1" is right where I am wanting them to set, the 1.25 does work with an OEM rim that has the notch out on the back. The 1" will have to have the starter nubs on the studs cut off, doesn't look like you have to get into the threaded part of the studs at all to make the 1" clear on a OEM rim.

Looks so much better pushing the wheels out. I eventually splurged on new wheels for my H2 with a huge offset compared to the stock. The wider stance looks so much better than being so tucked in.

My problem is I don't really plan on spending a bunch of money on new wheels since I only have 1k on the odo. Spacers would make the stockers look so much better though....decisions decisions...

Those of you with HUB centric spacers, would you mind posting links to where you bought them?

Do you have any pictures of 1.25 vs 1" spacers on a Canyon. Im of the same mindset as you as far as how far the wheels stick out.

Lenny at http://www.motorsport-tech.com/ will get you dialed in. I don't know about some of you guys, but I personally wouldn't run eBay adapters that are made in China. They might be made from the same aluminum as Bora, but I wouldn't take a chance with my $40k ride. Support your local American made products, and don't be cheap. I'm running Bora adapters, 1.25's in the front and 3/4" in the rear. I didn't measure my wheel base stock, but when I installed the Eibach leveling shocks at 2", I had a 1" wider wheel base in the rear, which didn't look good with 1.25's on all four. Lenny was very accommodating and let me trade the two 1.25's for 3/4". Now wheel base is perfect front to rear, and gives a nice wider stance. I did have to cut the rear lugs, but not the front.Tires stick out maybe 1/2" past fender on my Colorado, but I've heard the Canyon's wells are a little different, tucked in a little more if I'm not mistaken. Maybe someone else can chime in on that. Anyway, I love the look and feel now. I'll try to post up some pics later today.
