Superatv 6” lift ? About tires

Recently purchased a 2019 Teryx Le. Ordered a 6” lift kit from super atv. We also ordered new 32” intimidator tires. It says that if you use factory wheels you must use a 1” spacer. But not if you have aftermarket wheels. I know the factory wheels have an offset of 4+3. Therefore you need the inside to be a 3 on the offset otherwise the tires will rub? If that’s the case then there are so many after market wheels with the same offset so you will have same problem on an after market wheel with an offset of 4+3. Correct? Called in to SuperATV and left call back number but haven’t heard from them yet so thought maybe someone of this forum would know. Our issue is the lift kit also makes you 3” wider per side. So starting at 61” wide and adding the 6” makes us 67. Some of the places we ride you cannot get through if your over 69. If we use spacers on tires (we bought 1 1/2 instead of 1 because SuperATV was out at the time) 67 adding the spacers takes us to 70 and that’s without the tire. Only other option is an aftermarket tire with no spacers to get out width down if possible. Would a wheel with a 2+5 offset work with this setup?

It'll work, but you run the risk of pinching and damaging your brake lines. You can get away with it if you're careful, but I'd highly recommend getting new wheels or using spacers.

Don't forget to consider some clutch work also. Those 32s are a big step up from stock; tougher for the 'ol 800 to turn. Just sayin'.

How big of tires can you go without having to do clutch work?

Pretty sure an aftermarket 4+3 wheel will place the tires out a little further than the factory wheels....I don't even believe that either the front or rear factory wheels are 4+3 because they are not 7" wide.

The Teryx has a pretty awesome low gear, so you don't necessarily have to, but.........you'll start feeling the weight of the tire once you get past a 32" for sure.

Stock wheels are:
Front 4+2 offset
Rear: 5+3 offset

Offset measures Inner + Outer distances from the hub.
Keep Inner lower to prevent rubbing.
Keep Outer lower to keep it narrow.

4+3 and 3+3 are good choices.

Stock tires are:
Front: 9 inches wide
Rear: 11 inches wide

New tire widths will also change both inner and outer distances.

It gets confusing. I have to draw it out to keep things straight.
