Today I finally had time to install my BORA 2" wheel spacers. The fronts were easy, Since I had loaded rear tires, I thought the rears would be more difficult than they turned out to be. For the rears, I jacked up one side at a time so the tire just cleared the floor. I removed the two nuts and the four bolts and gently worked the wheel off the flange until it was free. The wheel/tire was easy to roll off to the side while the spacers were installed. Everything was torqued to spec for the spacer and the wheel once it was reinstalled.

Before I started.

Just the front done.

And the rear before.

And after.

The rears were necessary when I need to put my chains on, to provide clearance to the inner fender.

We’re these made for the tractor or did you just find the right bolt pattern? I seen somewhere.. maybe YouTube, a guy just ordered regular auto spacers for his BX and had them on for 2 years with no problems. They were only on the rear. I’d like to have some but the ones I’ve seen are very pricey.

How is the tire clearance on the front with the wheels turned fully? On my B7610 the front tires hit the loader frame.

You can just shop by bolt pattern. There are YouTube videos showing you how to measure to get the answer if you don’t know how.
Here is what I use on my BX23S
RockTrix 2pcs 1.5 inch Hubcentric 5x4.5 Wheel Spacers (71.5mm bore, 1/2x20 Studs) Compatible with Jeep Cherokee XJ Grand Cherokee ZJ Wrangler YJ TJ Liberty KJ KK (38mm 5x114.3) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M0AJJ7U/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glc_fabc_3pQ1Fb33JVHAS?psc=1

The bore is the right fit? Hub centric ., hub to spacer, spacer to wheel? Thanks for posting this for me.. I’ll check some others also now that you verified that bolt pattern.

These spacers were purchased from Motorsports Tech and were made for the LX2610.

The spacers are hub centric and fit very tight on the axle hub and the tractor wheels are very tight to the spacer hub. Here is the only sheet that came with the hubs, for the rears. There was no sheet for the front spacers.

OK, I bought similar spacers for my BX2200 and also as a welcome home present for my son in law's BX23s that he bought new recently.

BUT they simply work on BX series ONLY. I have searched without success for similar spacers that will fit my B series. Impossible for the normal man to find, unfortunately. (I consider myself normal, but do not know for sure)

If anyone needs spacers for a BX, follow Tchess450's lead. They work perfectly. The BX is not hub centric, so although the wheel spacers are, it makes no difference, as the hole is large enough to work, by a slight amount. However, if you want to go wider, they fit together really well, and could be doubled up.

Fatfenders spacers are USA made and specific for his tractor. No surprise there. And no question they will work perfectly. No dispute there!

Are you saying you can't find spacers for your B2910? Trying to read between the lines. If so, here you go to the bottom of ths page and select your model:

@Fatfenders you don't happen to have a mid mount mower do you? I've read mixed reviews on whether 2" spacers would work with a mid mount mower on the B2650/LX2610 and R4 tires. Was hoping someone could confirm if this would work with R14 tires.

Sorry. No MMM or plans to have one.

No, what I was trying to say is that I cannot find well made INEXPENSIVE spacers for the B2910, similar to what people are using on BXs.

I realize there are spacers available at MUCH higher prices.

I’ve come to the conclusion that I do not want to chance my new tractor breaking a lug or ripping it lose from a possibly weak link and caving in my fender or worse!
Decided to go with the Bro-tech after considerate thought and reading reviews, I did not find any negative on Bro-tech but did find negative on other no name spacers, not to say there aren’t good ones out there. Just not willing to chance it for a $100 savings. I guess a lot depends on what you’re doing and how well you installed them.

I just ordered the bro-tek 2" spacers today. They may be more expensive than others but I feel that their design is superior and Richard's customer service is second to none. I've also heard good things about the quality of the BORA spacers but I wouldn't use anything other than those two brands for my investment.

The way I looked at it is spacers designed for use by jeeps at highway speeds or off road should be satisfactory for a BX.

Seeing what was delivered for myself and son in law did not change my opinion.

There is certainly nothing wrong with buying to suit one’s comfort level. I did not mean to imply anything different. If I could find similar spacers to those I bought for the BX, to fit my B2910, I would not hesitate to try them for likely 1/3 of the price.

It is likely if I buy spacers for the B2910 they will be BORA or Bro-Tec, as that is the only apparent option at this point.

Tchess450 are you saying that these spacers will fit my BX2380? If so, I intend to buy a set.

Thank you for the quick reply. It's just what I needed.
Just an added thought. Since the bolts/nuts (do not remember which it is at the moment) which mount the spacer to the wheel hub are covered by the wheel, It is a good idea to use locktite blue (removable) to hold them in place after you torque them down properly. No way to check them without removing the wheel.

A tiny tube was enough for both my BX2200 and my son in law's BX23S.
