where can i get a good quality spacers in mumbai or pune for armada to mach the track width of FFRA with front axle?

front is 57 inch closed knuckle axle.
rear is 53 (51?) inch FFRA.

in case of 51 inch a pair of 3 1/2 inch sapcers will be needed to mach the track of front axle.
in case of 53 inch a pair of 2 1/2 inch spacers will be needed to mach the track of front axle.

Does a 1.5" Spacer on MM550 will effect the off road performance ?

I believe the broad consensus here, is that spacers = bad karma

Given a requirement to adapt the wheel PCD to a specific bolt pattern, what would the recommendation be ? would spacers be acceptable in this context?

@lugnut:

Spacer is a Spacer regardless of weather you are going to use it for PCD change for wider track. The effect on the wheel bearing is the same. That being said, a well made spacer upto an inch or so think is fine. It might decrease the life of your bearings, but there is not much of a choice is there.

Trying to bring a dead thread to life.
Came across this while researching on Wheel Spacers.

On a side note, i have no clue why Mahindra made the rear track width smaller than the front in the Bolero. Why would they do that? Mahindra / Bolero experts, any logic behind it?

I presume a narrower Track width at the rear improves turn radius...but I could be wrong.
