Hey gang can I get a recommendation on wheels?  What’s the difference with 3+2 vs 4+1 offset?

 

An inch of Offset. 3+2 means 2" from hub face to outside of rim, and 3" from hub face to inside of rim. I would say get 4+1 as it put the center of the rim closer to the center of the turning axis of the rim.

Thanks for the reply ZillaFreak! I've seen both recommended I feel like.

it could be his rim's offset that is widenin' the front end, and not wheel spacers. I think most, if not all LT front ends request 4:1 front wheel offset. The 4:1 rims combat bump steer better than other offsets can.

 

 

"That's a nice 'shee but I can't see it handling worth a fuck on 2+3 offset in the braking bumps..... Put some 4+1's on there and it'll be on rails.....

DEFIENTLY go +1 forward . As far as plus 2 or 3 . Honestly I went plus 3 second time around n wish went plus two. With plus to u want to run 3/2 offset wheel also same as factory offset. +3 u need a 4/1 offset wheel for front end to ride correctly wheels aren't cheap and harder to find then most offsets. 3/2 wheel on +3 rides like dog shit horrible bump steer and bouncing back and forth side to side aka to wide. I'm still waiting to put correct wheel on front my bike have to pick them up. But most say a +3 w 4/1 offset wheel bringing the wheel all the way close to ball joint allows for better turning and less bump steer. Thruthfuly they are the same when correct offset wheel is being used for which ever. Hope this helps.

Yes, +4+1 will handle better. I'd take some measurements or check with Roll and make sure they will clear, some arms have clearance issues with +4+1 and the upper arm at full extension.

I didn’t consider any rubbing issues, thanks Ben!

I guess when you upload a video straight from your phone to YouTube this is the quality you get. Anyway glad to report the Banshee is all put back together. It’s taken me a couple months because winters been pretty cold but had some decent weather and time the other day and got it going.  Still have a lot of playing to do with the Floats.

Got an even better deal on some 450 fronts to cruise on. 

I must be getting old, I think I'm officially Team not-cut-the-front-fenders

Don't worry they're two different fenders

Curious to know how you use the controls...

Another person has come back to the forum who has a throttle on the left side of bars.

Very nice.

Stay out of the water, that mud is extremely hard to clean off and is usually old and stagnit

 

Tell me about it! I walked up to the edge to pick up a rock to throw and started sliding like it’s ice. No way in hellll I’d ever get that funk on the banch!

Nothing is changed on my controls. Grew up out in that desert riding dirt bike and quads etc. I’ll have to post a good vid. I can use my arm to pull the clutch like you would with fingers.
