I'm sure this has been asked a million times, so I apologize in advance...

I just bought a 2009 Rhino and the wheels that came on were plain Douglas chrome wheels. I can't stand the looks of them and looking at getting a new set. These Douglas ones seem like they have a larger offset and more of a dish than the stock ones. I do like this though for the extra precaution for a rollover.

Question I have, what is the best dune set-up to help prevent rollovers and to keep good handling?

only at the sand on stock travel I run 8s on the front 4x4 spacing,on the rear I run 10s 4x6 spacing........keep the rotor in the wheel on the front,all these yahoo's on these rinos run the wheel soo far out it bends the steering arms and brakes the rack and pinion and kills the bearings...........I run STU blaster 26s on the back,offset cut and staggered cut and I can outclimb any other rhino out there with other tires and comparible upgrades......I've owned them all and this is the best tire for duning.........now if all u do is drag race,and not dune,then go sit at the bottom of olds and drink beer with the rest of the wingnuts,,,,ha ha ha....JK..........

Thanks for the reply's guys. So the wheels i'm looking at come in 5+2 or 2+5. Would the 2+5 be a good choice with stock suspension? The wheels that are currently on are a 12X8, 3+5 Douglas .190.

wider is better......those heavy cast rims I think ur talking about are good for dirt,in the sand u want width of rim and less weight and height of tire which equates to run out length or footprint length which inturn means floatation........going to a smaller narrower rim for the sand is a regression.........
