Anyone flip their rear rims for better handling?

Has anyone done this to get a wider wheel distance for better handling? Just want some of your thoughts.

If you did I think you would have to remove the mud scrapers so that your valve stems don't get ripped out. IMO if you flip your rears you will be putting to much load on the wheel itself. When mounted correctly the hub sits in the middle of the rim. Just my 2cents

Actually, is the hub actually in the center of the wheel ? Mine appear offset more toward the outside stock and inside flipped, but thats besides the point...

I may be way off here, but it has to be close to the same forces are on your wheel no matter which way you mount it if you think about it, I mean your only moving it out the thickness of the rim which is what like 4mm ??? So basically when they are on stock if you run over a rock with the inside of the tire it is the same pressure pushing up on it as would be if you were to run the same thing over with the outside of the tire with it flipped. As far as fast cornering, the extra width may put more force on your outside wheel, but the inside one adds weight to the inside keping all the weight from really pushing on the outside wheel that hard. In adition to that, you are more prone to slide and when your wheels are sliding theres less resistance between them and the ground taking pressure off as well. It may not be reccomended, but as i've said before, i weigh in at 220, so thats 725lbs plus centrifigul force and gravity pushing on that one outsiode wheel when i bury my thumb and come out of a corner on one wheel and they havent even began to show signs of fatigue...

just MY 2 cents...

sorry but simple physics says that the forces will be alot greater as the leverage arm is longer because your rear width is wider.

Ok, thanks froggy, and by the way its not "leaverage" it's "leverage"...look, my neighbor who does chassis design and fab for penske racing as well as my roomate who was an engineer in the navy and is now a machinist for ingersol rand were both here this morning and we three looked at it, discussed it and, well, theres not much if any more force on your wheel, sorry, there just isnt, for that to happen your atv would have to gain weight somehow...if anything, theres less, because you have to exert less force on the end of a longer lever to move a greater load....

think about it, just grab your grab bar and lift your quad, ok, now shove a 4 foot long lever in there and do the same, easier ain't it ? well that less force, duh...

there might be slightly more torque on the center part of your wheel, but your suspension would have to bottom out before that comes in to play i believe...
