I want to widen it out a little for the dunes. I'm thinking 4+4 for the rear and 4+3 for front. I want to go as wide as possible without adding to much stress to parts.

Hi are you asking for opinions so people can reply :confused:

If I was only a dune rider I would go with long travel A-arms but I don't know if this is a option for you ?

Enjoy the yxz :D

The stock YXZ is the same as a stock Mav. I run a 5/5 on the rear with my STU paddles and it's a perfect set up and stable. I went 4/4 in the front.

can you break those #s down to a "4+3" or something i am used to seeing. LOL

I am thinking about going with the STi bead locks which are 5+2... simply so I won't scratch and dent the OEM wheels.

But If anything, I would prefer to run 9" wide tires on all four corners so I don't want to actually make the rear end skinnier. I am already bicycling it enough now! LOL

Thanks for the help!

according to a Math chart... 48 mm is 1.8" and 34 is 1.3"

So I am guessing here... but it looks like the rear wheel is a 6+2 and the front is a 5+1.5 ??

does that sound about right ?

So I'll chime in even though I'm not a huge fan of wheel spacers... No OEM wheels here so move on if you are looking for any info there..

I bought this YXZ and it had 1.5" wheel spacers and 30" dirt tires (DWT 14x7 wheels - I'll measure offset but I think it's probably a 4/3) and the extra 1.5" helped with compression rubbing at turn.

I then used the same width spacers for my dune wheels/tires (why not - I'm not seeing bearing or hub issues). I have 14x8 (4/4) and 14/10 (5/5) on there with 28" paddles. My '16 is NA but tuned so I really think 30" would be better but I need power or gearing to spin them.. I think I will have the clearance on the front end and would go long travel if the $$ was easier to swallow.

I'm not an advocate for wheel spacers at all and avoid at all costs - they have been fine for 1000+ miles so what the heck...

The biggest thing for me was to have my dirt tires/wheels with the same offset so they were rolling in the same line/track. The paddles are wider on the rear, it was the rubbing on the front (especially under compression/turn) where it could get you.
