We run 2 offs on the right side and sometimes on the left front and always 3 offs on the left rear. The rest of the times we use 3 off on the left front also. The more offset on the left front seems to help on drier tracks. In our division we can't adjust weight or add weight so this helps us tune to track conditions a little. It despends on if you have a stock width rear end also. If the rear is wider you will need to tuck the tires in more to keep the track width in line. Good luck.

Oops, forgot to add, with our tire rule we run 255/60 x 15 on all but the left rear which is a 245. Hope it helps you.

On my old car I ran 2" on the front and whatever offset on the back to get the back tires to line up with the fronts.But usually I ran 4s on the back.It did seem and it might just be my driving style,but when I had a 3" on the right rear it made the car loose,when that same 3" was on the left rear the car was tight.I was also racing a chassis that was 18 yrs old also.

run 3s on all four corners when its wet but take a 2 and put it on the left and a four on the right when it dries out and you may try a 4 on the rf when its dry.

Are you running wheel spacers with a 4.My expierence with a 4 on the rf or lf is,if someone happens to get you loose once you try and correct it and you turn to far right or left witha 4 inch offset it will hit the frame.Thats the main reason why I run 2s in the front.
