    So after a crap ton of researching hours a day and looking at every possible forum on here about suspension i think i am just going with Maxtrac spindles, but im looking for a way to keep my tires tucked in as much as possible. I still am confused about backspacing rims and offset. I have 16s factory rims but i see a couple people run factory 17s sport rims and get away with just a little tire sticking out. Can anyone provide me with information on what i need to do to prevent so much tire sticking out?

    Also anyone running 305 mud grapplers on this setup? Thanks guys for putting up with all the questions

    read build thread
    I dont run them, but the tires will stick out more with spindles no matter what you do I think. youd need to run some spacers in the back to make them all stick out / look the same too. I dont know if youd need spacers on stock rims with spindles tho.

    personally I like that my tires stick out abit more. :)
