does a wider front help

So I have a question I need help with. I have the Douglas .190 rims with 20x11x10 GBC master. I also have the 11/16 sway bar. and the ds 450 front shocks. BTW I have 22x7x10 up front. I am trying to have less body roll. I am still on the stock front rim. Will getting a front rim with an offset help? Also wondering if the upper a-arm replacement will help as well?

I had spacers on stock rear. I think 1 1/4"
Put on new 10" rears and put spacers on front... now the quad is balanced again.. the downside with offsets or spacers is it makes the steering heavier
I can powerslide like mad now though..

Are you running spacers on the front. I do have the 10in wheels on the rear. I get the Douglas front wheels with an offset will it have the same effect as spacers?

the rims will act very similar. But if you are riding on restricted size trails it might be a problem.

Its amazing how far a KFX 90 will fly if you go fast. 15' is her current record.

I read that you shouldn't put wheel spacers on the front so I will go with new front wheels with a bigger offset. Will the offset on the front wheels make the quad harder to steer?

you can try and hit tbird88 up. I know he runs the 10" rears and different offset up front. He's been quite lately probably nestled up with his 700 somewhere.
