I am trying to put new rims and tires on my new 2007 650i. I need some help here!!!

1- I want a 14" deep center rim so what offset is recommended??
2- I want to put a good set of tires on also and i want some bad boys so what is recomended??? I muddy trail, mud hole and swamp ride
3- If bigger tires are the way to go what size lift do i need to accomodate whatever size tires??
4- finaly i have 2 rim styles in mind, i like the ITP SS 112's and the Super grip 5 stars.. Any other wheels out there that look similar to either one???

you guys are the greatest I am new to all this and all the questions i have had you fellas have more than answered!!! Hopefully you can help me here.. I really appreciate all your knowledge and thanks again

you dont need a lift for any tire on a brute 14in tire selection is very limited most all aftermarket wheels are 5+2 offset

Here's a couple pic's of my 14" SS112's with 27" XTR's. I don't have much riding time on them but so far I am quite happy with them. Offset is 5+3 in the rear and 4+2 in the front. This offset gives you lots of room for big tires. It is a way better setup than stock and best of all the wheels have a lifetime warranty.

Thanx BigTime. Ya the wheels really make the brute a sweet looking unit. I would really like to see a nice black brute with them on, so if you get a set be sure to post a pic.

The width of the wheels are 6" in the front and 8" in the rear. This combo seems to work great.

No problem BF650I i will post pics soon. Anybody have any tire recomendations?? I like the mudlites and i seen they have a new 30" tire out there... Any experience with these or any others??? As soon as i can figure out a good tire for my style of riding I will be purchasing. So if anyone with experience has any good suggestions please let me know!! Thanks for all the help guys!!!

ONE MORE THING- I know they make these rims in all different widths and sizes... What is a good width for these bikes 6, 8, 10, or 12??? Which goes where??? Is wider better or is narrow better??? i need kinda all the info on wheels... again i am new and have no clue... Thanks again fellas!!

What is all rear offset??? I have a 650i and i thought all the wheels are the same 5+2.. But i want i deep center wheel like BF650I so what kinda offset is recommended?? I like the way that your hotrod looks sdf1201 but how is it with slinging the mud with the tires out past the fenders that far. i would not care but my wife will if she is getting shot with rooster tails all day!!! Got to make her happy to or my life will be miserable but aint that how it always is.. Thanks again for the info fellas!!!
