How wide is too wide?

2004 Foreman with ITP wheels and Blackwater 27's. Stance measures 49" wide at the rear and stock is 45". Can I go wider for more rock crawling stability or is this wide enough? How wide is too wide on these things?

I don’t think there is such a thing as to wide, it’s more a personal thing, how does it feel to ride? Too wide might look odd though.
Looks alright to me, one thing to mention though, the wider you go on the front the harder the steering is, usually. I run 2” spacers all round on my 300 and haven’t encountered issues yet, I wouldn’t want to go much wider than that though.
Do you have a lift kit fitted? 5” wider on a stock machine should be more than enough. Spacers put a LOT of load on hubs, splines and bearings.
