Default Sprint 2 Offset

Just received my 32r Premount Sorex. Didn't realize I needed a set of offset rears. Is there hub extender or something I can do so I can get the tires to match up with the factory width.

How will my handling be if I mounted up the zero offset premounts. Stock I believe is 3+ in the front and 6+ in the rear.

I tried using washers between the wheel and the hub. Only able to put 1 washer/shim.

Get a 190mm body. Most of those 200mm bodies look a bit odd even with the correct wider/offset tires.

With the zero offset f/r the rear width is narrower than the front. Guess I can try it out and see how it handles. But I don't want to waste a brand new set of tires. Does anyone know where I can find some 24mm offset rims.

I have run my S2S with zero offset rims(MMR24 and Sweep 36 tires) with no problems.
