Hey yall. I was a little bored so I was just looking at rims and tires for an atv with irs. What hit me was the offsets. Can the irs atvs still run the wider rims like the solid axle ones? or should both the offsets be the same and keep the same width tires?

I hate itp wheels.
Your 5 + 2 itp wheels are 4 +3 if you measure them. I had a pair of them for the rear of my rubicon and traded em for stock wheels as they stuck out too far.
The stock rear wheels are 6 + 1.5, real 5 + 2 wheels are close to stock, it'd be nice if someone made em that offset.

I run stock wheels because they're about the only thing available in the proper offset, you could put your tires on the stock wheels. The stock wheels off a yamaha or suzuki work too.
You can add 1 inch spacers to the front to make the front wider but the only reason the rear is wider than the front is your rear tires are wider. I have the same width tires front and rear (27x9x12) and the front is the same track width as the rear.
If the rims are the same front and rear and the tires are the same width front and rear on an rubicon the back is the same width as the front, just like a car or truck.
