Do it if you think it will be more confortable, but you could cut 0.25 inch in each side, so you can see how you like it more.

I've seen someone who was about 5' 7" throw bar spins with 30" wide bars, so it's all just preference really.
I don't do bar spins but I personally ride 27" wide bars.

Personally i like 28-28.5 anything bigger or smaller feels weird.
I've been working on bars again and see no issue with them that wide.

Mine came stock at 29, I lobbed about 3/4 of an inch off each side. Love em.

Honestly I think bars look awful if they have more than a brake lever's space between grip and bend.

But as said above, start with 1/2 inch and work in. You can always cut more off, but you can't put more back on.

One thing I did too was just slide my grips in to see where I would be pretty comfortable, and used that as a starting point.

I wanted mine cut but didn't have the resources to do it. As Lorenzo said , I'll grow some balls and huck them... 9 rise x 30 wide !!

bar size shouldn't make much of a difference for barspins as long as you keep your legs straight. i cut my first bars to 27 and my new bars are at 28 and i feel more comfortable throwing the bars on wider bars

Step 1: remove grips
Step 2: cut grips to the exact width of your hand
Step 3: slide grips onto bars until they touch crossbar
Step 4: cut excess bar stock off
Step 5: barspin

On the other side , wider bars makes catching easier. So you don't get much out of cutting.

I cut mine to 28 for a while, tried 27 3/4 and it's even better, less bar to worry about haha, and I run the 9 rise Rebar and they're my favorite so far, strong and just enough sweep
