A-arm width

I'm looking at buying an 08 450R. The guys says it has +3 a-arms. They are Houser Slicast. Stock rims. Can anyone tell me where to measure the arms or what the total
Width would be with this set up? I'm going back over today to check it out. Thanks

I haven't even seen a set of +3 on the web yet. Lol

Well, +2 arms would make the entire frontend about 48" or so. Ive never seen +3 arms either.

Don’t know the overall length, but Houser makes a +2 1/4 width arm. JD Performance make a +3.

I’ve seen plenty of +3 arms, but I don’t recall houser making any that were +3. If it actually had +3 arms with stock wheels it would be over 52” wide.

Thanks FOR the replies. I got a hold of Houser. They were 2.25" . Do y'all know if I can buy just one tie rod from Houser?
