Has anyone tried to use 4+4 offset? Any challenges with width?
Best description I have seen yet.
- Tire manufacturers have recommended rim sizes for tires. Not a big deal, but ensure you can get close and a good seal.
- You might loose some height going wider than recommended also.
- We don't have long travel numbers, so tire scrub isn't a large concern I would think, but might affect handling some.
- Wider car width would be more stable I'd think, make sure you're not limiting yourself to any trail width restrictions.

According the Ramx2 XT-R specs, my kingpin angle is 10.8 degrees and kingpin offset is 14.1 mm (0.56 in). Is the kingpin offset the same as scrub radius? If so, that's good for a stock 4/3 offset wheel. That makes the 4/4 offset wheel a possible option after all. Plus 32 in tall tires would help.Also don't forget turning radius, especially if you use spacers in the rear.
I added 1-/1/2" in rear of my X2 to square tracking up and to get tire clearance with the Perfex lift.
At full droop, tires rubbed the shocks.
No. In my math pic, I was verifying to ensure my Trig formula was correct at the time....... Is the kingpin offset the same as scrub radius?.......
It's always nice to learn something new. Thanks for educating me. Scrub radius needs to be .250-1.00. Preferably closer to .250 but not lower. I got it.That offset my also come out to be the scrub for stock tires & wheels too.
It's been awhile so I don't recall what numbers I plugged into the formula.
Wow. Nice set up. Been looking at these for the 2021 Rmax2 XT-R:i use 4/4 offset in rear and 4/3 in front to have same width track on my x4. see link in signature for details on wheels tires and width.
