Wheel Offset Which would tou perfer

Between the 5+2 and the 4+3 which offset do you prefer


The 5+2 will put you close to stock, about a 1/2" over per side and the 4+3 will put you at about 1.25" wider per side.

Depends on where you plan to ride the YXZ. I would say 4+3 for dirt/rocky trails but the 5+2 on sand. But that's my preference.

I ride a lot of trails, so I stay as narrow as possible

I am seeing that is the norm, open desert do the 4+3 for stability and 5+2 for the trails to keep it tight and nimble.

The OEM wheels are staggered and from the abbreviated service manual:

14 x 6.5" front offset 34mm
14 x 8" rear offset 48mm
Bolt pattern both 4 x 110

Let's say and we are talking about a 7" wheel a 5+2 offset would put 5" of the wheel to the inside of the car and 2" toward the outside, a 3+4 offset would put 3" of the wheel toward the inside and 4" outboard. A 3+4 offset would make your car 4" wider than a 5+2 offset wheel.

If 5+2 clear, they change the scrub radius only -4 mm so the machine will handle more like stock, and will be easier to drive over a long day. It'll also be easier on parts.

4+3 increases scrub radius by +21 mm which will give a heavier feel with less feedback and more tiring to drive. Also, can be harder on parts.

So 5+2 if they clear.

stock front wheels +34 mm are (in inch) 4.59+1.91, so close to 4.5+2

stock rear wheels +48 mm are 5.89+2.11, so close to 6+2
