Front rim offsets 3:2 or 4:1

Hi i just got a set of omf bead locks and got the 3:2 reading some posts have got me worried that this may be negatively affect the handling? Would i be better getting the 4:1 offset. These are still brand new and unridden. The front a arms and suspension are stock at the moment. No spacers are used either. Thanks

The stock fronts are 31/2 : 11/2 offset ,think it was Wayne Matlock who said. I cannot see a problem running 3:2 offset. I have 4:1 on mine and was going to get a set of 3:2 to go alittle wider.
I had a set of 2:3 on Lonestar +21/2 " a-arms on the 450r and loved them for MX. I kinda like stiff steering.

find someone with some offset wheels and bolt them up, i'm sure you know someone with a set of 4/144 offset wheels, they should fit virtually any newer sport atv...that way you can use your own judgement and not ours because apparently some like it and some dont...

I have DWT front wheels with 3+2 offset and love them! I got the razr 2's at the same time and don't know if it's mainly the tires that made it better but a lot of the push is gone. The 3+2 offset makes it 47.4 inches wide up front and I ride really tight trails and never had a problem being too wide.

Cool thanks just thought i remember reading on here someone thought that wider offset on the front was a bad idea, but i couldnt find it again.

Widening the front with an offset or wheel spacers is said to give more feedback through the bars but its only .75" wider per side and I couldn't feel any more feedback. I do have a CCP stabilizer which I think is the best mod on any quad.

You should be fine with either offset, there is not a huge difference in handling. Yes, you may have a little bit more feedback with the 3:2 wheels, but it will not be that noticable. The problems with offsets are when you go to a 2:4 or even a flipped stock wheel, 1.5:4, then you can really feel the increased feedback. Stock wheels are 4:1.5 offset, so with 4:1 offset you will be about a inch narrower then stock, while 3:2 you will be a inch wider. If you are running stock arms and are looking for a little more width, go with the 3:2 offsets, they should work fine.
