ATV Offset?

New to the side by side world.

Shopping for a 900 trail and want to keep it's width near 50" (a lot of trails of the 50" or less variety where we ride). Dumping the stock tires & wheels for something better but wonder about the offset number (X + Y). What does X and Y annotate and I assume they effect width?

Re: ATV Offset?

In (X+Y) the X is how much backspacing the wheel has, or how much of the wheel is toward the machine from the wheel's hub mounting face. The Y is how much of the wheel sticks out away from the machine past the wheel's hub mounting face. So, a 5+2 wheel is 7" wide with 5" toward the machine and 2" outward. So you can measure the factory wheel's and then find an aftermarket one that stays close to that to maintain your width. I will add though, why don't you just put better tires on the factory wheels?

Re: ATV Offset?

Iím running a 14x7 wheel with a 5+2 offset, with 28x10x14 Carnivores and am at 51.5 inches wide, and still make it through the 50 inch gates locally. I was at 52 inches wide with factory rims and 26x11x12 Ripsaws in the rear. Also was at 52 inches wide with my RS1 stock rims and tires with 1 inch wheel spacers. I found for the 50 inch gates where I ride, 52 inches is about as far as you can push it.
