Need some quick input on 3+2 offset on front wheels for my 525 S. I know most don't prefer it but I have a really good deal I don't wanna pass on. I have stock a-arms and don't competitive race. I can get a set of Hiper's with tires, a stock set if wheels and tires and a Precision Stabilizer for $500. I've wanted some Hiper's for awhile so give me some input or if is really notice or if it would be better having a wider front?

i much prefer the 3/2 offset wheels. for my riding area being wide open and for the dunes wide means more stable and better handling at high speeds.

if you are running tight woods being 2 inches wider may not be great for you.

If you don't ride a lot of tight woods then the width isn't as big a deal. Otherwise that is a good deal.

Will it make the front wider than rear or look goofy?

people trash different offset wheels and wheel spacers but i have been running both of them for years and never had an issue. no question wider a arms are nicer but for a lot more dough. i prefer 3/2 wheels to wheel spacers. that sounds like a good deal to me.

yeah i think that will put you about the same width front and rear. measure front and rear now and add 2 to the front. that is where you will be real close to.

I say go for it.  Your not going to loose any money on that deal if you decide you don't like the setup.  The precision alone can be sold for 225.00 with ease.

I'd think the stabilizer would tune out some of the negative effects of the wheel spacing, but it still puts some extra pressure on the tie rods and associated parts.  Go for it.  If you don't like them, you should easily be able to sell them.
