    Wheels - 17mm Hex Wide Offset

    Hey, if you are using a wide off set wheel with 17mm hex and you did not have to cut or modify the wheel's bead, can you let me know what you used?

    Good luck, call a wheel maker and talk them into making them. I think there is a market for them.

    Wheel's bead or tire's bead? Which tires are you asking about?

    If you have 17mm hex adapters, ofna mt3 splits are great 3.2 wheels. You can actually stretch on a set of 2.8's on them, but you need some strong hands...

    I think Its time Pro Line steeped up to the plate, and release a 17mm desperado 2.8 with a TRX bead-lock. Let the e-mails begin! To the OP currently you will either have to mod the wheels or your tires to make it happen.

    I think the super low profile of a trimmed up 2.8 is much more stable, its worth the work it takes! Stretching the tire is more work than cutting and ....... you have a bigger than intended tire, more likely and able to balloon, the only upgrade with the stretched set is the 17mm hex. In this instance, taking the time to trim the wheels/tires has significant benefits.
