    Educate me: Hiper 14x7... what offset would work?

    For those of you running Hiper Dakars... what offset would work for a 14x7 wheel that I could use for both front and rear (with spacer if necessary)? Suspension components are stock.

    Will 5+2 (inside+outside) work?

    This topic is somewhat confusing to me since there are many dependencies and I will have to order without fitting to get these.

    Thanks in advance and thanks also for a great Cat community!

    I just ordered this exact set up. The way I did it was 3+4 fronts, 2+5 rears. The rear is narrower so you need more offset or wheel spacers.

    Just a heads up you have to grind a little on the front calipers for the 3+4 to work due to the inner beadlock ring.

    So why wouldn't you go with 2+5 all around? Is this to keep the front track narrower?

    Thanks!

    Because I don't want to run spacers and wanted 14x7's all around. They don't make a 1+6

    So this is where I need some education... Wouldn't 3+4 make it closer to the body than 2+5?

    Yes the 3+4 is closer to the body than than 2+5. The secound # is how far the rim sticks out from the mounting surface.

    I run 14x8 on the front and 14x10 on the rear with a 1 inch spacer on front and a 1.5 spacer on rear offset is 4x4 and 5x5. I have about 400 miles on this setup and works very wellName:  2012-03-02_16-24-59_272.jpg

    So wouldn't 2+5 work for the fronts, therefore allowing you to run 2+5 all around? I am assuming the clearance is required for suspension, etc on the inside.

    Yes, you can do that. You will need a spacer in the rear if you want the widths the same front and rear. I chose not to use spacers so I ran different offsets to keep the width the same. The only thing that rubs with the 3+4 is the caliper, suspention components are clear.

    Got it, thanks! I understand your earlier comments now: the 3+4 front maintains the same outside dimensions with 2+5 in the rear.

    Then 2+5 all around doesn't make a lot of sense since the front would be wider by an 1" on each side, potentially affecting corning. So I will either need to have different offsets or different widths. To have a single wheel/tire for front and rear I will need a spacer on the rear.

    I must be a little slow today...
