So, let me start off by saying I'm an idiot and I should have measured the offset of my wheels beforehand. Now that we have that out of the way, I bought a set of 10" x 5" .190 ITP's for my Blaster the other day. I had bought a used set of aluminum wheels for $140 about a month ago that had 10" x 8" ITP rear's with usable tires and some stock Yamaha fronts that were totally trashed. The wheels I got had 4/1 offset rather than the stock 3/2. I mocked them up and noticed that I've got about 9/16" clearance from the inner barrel of the wheel to the upper ball joint, but the wheel sits in quite far over the control arms. I realize you can flip the wheels around, but I'm not sure how long the wheels would last before they start to bend. A lot of trails by me are ONLY RIVER ROCKS. They can and will destroy you and your suspension. I know you can run a spacer to offset the offset (hehe, that sounds funny), however, that puts extra wear on your suspension components. So in summary I have two questions: 1.) Would it be better to flip my front wheels and rely on the tensile strength of the nuts/bolts and the strength of the wheel for very gnarly trail riding? 2.) Do they make a 1" to 1.25" spacer out of aluminum or something that's very light that will not put extra stress on the spindle and suspension components?
