spitballing

So Im trying to be creative with a way to get some extra width on my front end. DWT used to make a 10x6 front rim in a 2+4 offset. The down side is that it was a .160. I have found 1 at Rocky Mountain but that is the only one so far, no luck in scaring up a second rim.

I have also found a 10x8 ITP with a 3+5 offset, that is clearly supposed to be a rear rim, the Tusk Voltage tire is made in a 21x7. Would that work? Would the bead be sticking to far out?

I need new front tires and my rims are mismatched so going this route gets me new tires with matching rims and wider.....

There was another option there are 10x5 rims with a 4+1 offset. I could turn them around, invert the inside valve stem and machine another valve stem on the outside.

I even called DWT to see if they could pull a set of rims before the valve stem hole was punched. It would be easy enough to machine one on the side I needed it on.... however they were not helpful

Alright maybe that was too much at once. I think what Im most interested in is buying the 4+1 rims and flipping them.
My question is how vulnerable are the brakes if I go that way

Another way to widen using all stock parts yet putting no extra weight on anything is a widening kit (look on ebay?)
Had one on my raptor, gave +3 inches both sides, yet brakes stay inside rims and shock mounts also move out.
The problem with adding width with wheel spacers or rims with a larger offset is it all adds weight to the steering and more pressure on the system.
A widening kit may need longer front brake pipes but a longer tie rod/steering rod comes with the kit.

How much stress does it put on the system? I have to get new rims anyway because mine are mismatched. Should I go 2+3? That should give me more brake protection, Ive also decided that I intend to do the sway bar. Should I just get stock offset and let the sway bar fix the push?

I wouldnt like to say how much extra stress spacers or rims put on the system, but an anti-swaybar is the best single mod you can make as the results are amazing !

Best bet is choose your tyres you want then choose a rim 1" less.
I have a list of rims availible for a 4/144 somewhere that might help but a front 10x5 is availible in a 4:1 offset and a 3:2 offset in a .190 ali. I have a set of 2:3, sadly no longer available.

There's also a 10x6 with 3:3 offset availible. Amazing thing is , you can get a 10x4 , 10x5 , 10x6 , 10x7 and a 10x 8 in a 4/144 bolt pattern.

I got my new tires and wheels mounted yesterday, so I thought I'd do an update. I decided to go with the DWT .190 rims in a 3+3 offset. That way it gives the brake some coverage and gains a little width. I went with the Tusk Voltage tires.

We are going to ride on Sat, I will give my thoughts afterwards. I still plan on doing the sway bar as well, unless Im impressed with this combo...
