^^ not really. That's what I had and I loved them. It's better than running spacers. But
You still get a little extra width.

You had those wheels on a Brute? How many miles did you put on it? Trail miles? Fairly agressive? Did it alter how it handled? Steered?

I know... I'm full of questions..

I just like the idea of a bit wider stance.. more stability for high speed gravel road ripping..

Yeah some run the 2+5s...with mixed results. You will have extra width with the correct wheels and you won't go through parts if you ride aggressively...and it will handle close to correctly....ie normal bump steer. The stockers are like 5.5+1.5 (about). Anything with the second number higher is added width. For example I run 8x14s with the 5+3 offset. That makes the outside wheels 3"s total wider then stockers, then I run 11" wide tires over the stock 10s. That's another 1/2". With the stock tires and wheels I was about 46" wide and with these I am 49.5". My goal was to keep it at or under 50" so I wouldn't have any issues with the 50" limit on trails we have around here.

Dman66 has the 2+5..or 6s on his. Maybe send him a PM on how his handles and how he likes them.

No where on the ad does it give the offset but if its 4+3 or 5+2 you won't need spacers but with 28/29" tires you probably will need a lift kit.

I have to take the link out of your post cause it links to a business that isn't a supporting vender....and its HL..

New user question:

I have a 2013 BF 750 4x4i. I am about to install

2" Highlifter Signature series lift
30x9x14 Zillas on the front
30x11x14 Zillas on the back

My question is, do I need to take any particular offset rules into consideration for my 4 wheeler? I have read somewhere that the different suspension setups will require different offsets and backspacing. The rims I chose are

14x7 with a 4+3 for the front
14x8 with a 2+6 for the back.

Will I have any issues running this set up aside from minor trimming of the plastics?

Rule-of-thumb for all IRS. The first number of any offset must be larger or equal to the second number to avoid bearing and knuckle problems. Your choice for the front is fine but not the rear. Leave them the same or go with 5+3 or 4+4.
