Curved Radius arms

My 285 KM2s are rubbing on the D110 radius arms.
Is it possible to "curve" radius arms inwards to stop the rubbing?
I don't want to add spacers.

Get spacers, get different wheels, adjust your steering stops or just don't turn the wheel to lock.

Mine were curved. Because I bent them wheeling. Not recommended.

Of course, if you built totally custom arms you can make it work, but since your asking about it, not a good idea!

Some early P38's have them, 95-96-97?, they are bent from the factory.

Just get spacers and push them out.

Had the same tires and the same problem. Allso lost quite a bit of turning radius which sucked off road.
Spacers fixed it- never had to adjust the stops.

Consensus seems to be spacers.

So is hubcentric the way to go?
Is it true that here will be more force on the bearings by pushing the wheels out further?
Are spacers no different than getting rims with different backspacing?
Doug. How big are your spacers?

Thanks guys.

There is really nothing wrong with running spacers. Wheels are better. Good luck.
