Ok here is my problem. Right now I have RZR 4 with 30" dominators on Polaris bruiser rims which has an offset of 4+3 on the front and 4+4 on the rear. The size of the rims are 14". I have some rubbing on the front fender well. It is not all the time but it is there. Also with the wider stance I have mud everywhere when I ride. I have already added XP fender flares to the front. Ok here is my question. Should I buy a set of offset arms from Super ATV to eliminate the rubbing and if so what can I do to keep the mud off me and the passengers. Also there are not a-arm guards that will work with the offset. I already have the EMP ones now.

The second option I could do is go back to stock rims which are 12" and have an offset of 4+2 front and 6+2 rear and go down to a 28" tire. This would solve the rubbing issues as well as set the tires back under the fenders which would help with the mud.

I know descions descions but I thought I would ask for some advice first. Thanks

I had the EMP arm guards on mine...when I put the SATV arms on I cut the EMP to make them fit....then bought a set of Richochet skid clamps to hold them with...it looked good and served the pourpose.

Thanks for the info Jody. That was one of my concerns was getting or making an a-arm guard/cv guard that would work.

If you get rubbing on the inner edge of the body just inside the wheel well you can take a 2x4 and a heat gun, heat up the plastic where it rubs and use the 2x4 against the tire to press it in and hold it there till it cools, most times this will do the trick

Also if you don't want to do the heat gun trick to the floor board, another option is to use Highlifter's fender mod kit which stops rubbing completely and looks factory.

On that note I remember seeing a buddy doing about the same thing but he used a flat basketball. After heating the area he added air to the ball and it made a nice smooth area, looked factory.

Thanks for all of the advice guys. I think I am going to step down in size and go with the 28" tire. I will get some of my power back that way and if I have warranty work on the front end I can just swap back to stock tires and rims. If I had went the offset way it would definetly void any warranty issues. I know the 28" aren't good for it but at least they are easy to change out.

So with that in mind I have a set of 30" dominators for sale with 14" polaris bruiser rims. I will post this up in another thread with pics and price.

Thanks again for everyones input.
