Wheel offset?

Post by Sethsquatch »

Hey all!

So finally getting to use my Pinz as it should be, getting it off road and camping in it. Just wondering if it's possible or advisable to put a wheel with a different offset on a 718.
I'd like something to give it a little wider stance for stability and looks. Nothing radical, but maybe 1.5-2 inches. I know I can get custom wheels made to order, and from what I can see, there's nothing to rub on. Please give me input. Also, if this works, I might have 7 factory wheels with brand new KM3s on them. :D

Well the original td steel rims are ET-73 , so the difference is 30mm ( 1, 18 inch) pro wheel outwards . :wink:
So your stand is 60mm ( 6cm) or 2,36 inch wider on the axle.
When mine stands straight the tyers are fluch with the outside wooden rails.
