Wheel size on Jay Flight Slx 145RB

Just bought a 2012 Jay Flight SLX 145RB. Yes it sits very low and I am in the process of buying an axle flip kit. I plan on putting 14" aluminum rims and whatever LT 14" tires that I can find (Goodyear Wrangler LT would be nice). Yes...I'm going to make a Baja Edition out of a regular 145RB. What I would like to know is wheel width, max diameter and any offset. I am Canadian and I'm looking at a wheel at Canadian Tire called the Ion Alloy style 71 wheel. It can be had in 14" size. Let me know what you think.

Thanks

Mike

I'm sorry I cannot answer your question. I just wanted to comment. I did the axel flip. Great mod for my 184BH. 2 things that were unexpected or not anticipated. I had to start carrying an extra step to gap the ground and the only folding step. Also, the outriggers are nearly too short. I had to start carribg around extra wood to stack up under the stabilizers.

I'll check the tire size on my 174BH baja tonight when I get home from work if that will help. As far as the step issue goes, those are pretty easy to replace for under $100. I have a friend that did an axle flip and replaced his steps without issue. The stock stabilizers on a baja are almost too short and I have to carry around wood anyways. I had one site where I had over a foot stacked under one of the stabs.
