    1. is there any reason why the pioneer uses a narrower and dirrerent offset on the front wheels. and are they interchangeable from front to back. will I have any problems if I went to a rear rim for the front. I have bought a set of wheel copvers and the wheel dish is too shallow on the front for the wheel covers. I have made a hard cover for the bed and it looks great. wheel covers would help

welcome to the forum !!!!
the reason for the 2 different offset is less steering effort with the thinner wheels up front (no power steering ) and i dont think you can switch them around without making it unstable and or them rubbing .....

Welcome to the forum.

There is a 5 +2 offset in the front and a 5 +3 on the rears. You should have no problem putting a 5 +3 rim in the front. I don't know how your tire clearance will be if your keeping the stock wide rear tire on that rim though.

They used the different offset in the front, because the thinner tire width doesn't require as wide of a rim as the rear. The front stock rim is a 12x7 and the back is a 12x8.



Hope that answers your question.

Makes sense. This is also good if you will have other members of your family using it. But did doing this make a significant difference?

I don't find it any harder to turn my BH 2.0's up front. That might change on asphalt or straight rock, but not on my terrain.
