Most will say get new wheels.
- cheaper than 5 new wheels (unless you want black steel wheels).
- SpiderTrax are very well made.
- Will give you 4" of BS if you get the 1.5" version.
- Double the number of lugs to tighten/check when working on wheels or brakes.
People will argue that the spacers will screw up the joints, but I contend that wheel spacers will give you the same effective backspacing (and any additional forces) as a wheel with the same backspacing.
I like my Canyon wheels, so I went with wheel spacers. My wheels have not fallen off, I have noticed no additional steering or joint issues from this. I've had them since 2006.
If I could do it again, I'd consider new wheels, but I'd get alloy wheels, not steel. So the price consideration comes into play.
if you don't care about the Ravines, jsut get steel wheels with 4" of BS and send the Ravines to me.
