tire rub

Wondering why they designed the a-arms so when you crank the wheel all the way the tire rubs the a-arm? Seems to be a limiting factor in the turning radius not to mention causes the inside wheel to lock up in the turns. Has anyone addressed this problem? Or is it a problem?

Re: tire rub

What size front tire are you running? and have you double checked your toe-in?

I run a 25x10x12 Big Horn 2 on the front of my Revolt using the stock wheel and I get a slight bump but it doesn't affect my steering abilities. I plan on changing my backset an inch.

Todd,
When you say "lock up" do you mean that the tire quits rotating?

I run the same size, on a OMF wheel. Mine rub a little. After checking the toe, I found it was toed out.
Also worn rods ends can be a problem. Jack up the front of the car, until the tires leave the ground. Check all of the joints, steering and A-arms. There should be no, or very little play, between the ball and outer ring.
A dry lube will help to make them last longer. The FK replacements are worth the time and money.

Red Rock Rails, do you stock FK's?

Re: tire rub

The buggy has 7 miles on it so nothing is worn or loose. I have not checked toe yet. kind of figured they would set and check this from the factory. I have not hit anything so nothing is bent either. I run the stock wheels and tires still. Mike, yeah, they stop rotating. But I enter corners pretty hard and crank the wheel pretty hard so I can not really say "lock-up" I guess. I will check the toe and maybe change the backset if and when I buy new wheels. Just seemed odd to have that issue.

Was that you with your XL on youtube? Cool video. What happened when you got on two wheels and the video stopped? Did you roll it over??

I would definitely check that toe when you get it back from the Turbo job. It sounds odd that if you are running the stock fronts that it would hit. It makes me think that there is something off with the front toe.

Re: tire rub

Hhhhmmmm........I think we can assume that Redline would not intend for the tire to hit the A-arm. So..........there could be several things to check.

1) is toe set right? According to others, their toe can be set right and still hit the a-arm. So might not be the problem.
2) Heim joints not adjusted to "stock" positions. Perhaps one is adjusted longer or shorter than they should be. Hard to say what it "should be".
3) A-arms are slightly bent
4) A-arms are slightly "out of whack" from what they should be.

So........where to go from here? I don't know. I think you need to sit and stare at your setup and figure out what could be moved or adjusted that would keep it from hitting. And then try to get measurements from one that doesn't hit to see how much different it is. That's how I would approach it.

There is nothing bent and it rubs on both sides. I will check toe as I said. I do not have one close to me for comparison, so I am out of luck there. I will keep searching for the cause. How much clearance does everyone else have at full turn?
