Which modern day crank has the widest Q factor?

I got a new bike which is a 27.5+ plus bike and I am using 29 wheels w/ 2.4 tires so no problems there.

The only problem is that I have big calf muscles and they would rub (ever so slightly) on the swing arm and pivot.

My current crank is the SRAM GX 1400 (from a few years ago). I believe the Q factor is 169.

So maybe going to a crank w/ a wider Q factor could be the answer (but nothing extreme like a fat bike crank).

Any pointers? I believe the M8000 has 176mm Q, but there are any other options?

Pedal extenders might be a cheap option to see if you like the wide q. If you’re a stout fellow I’d go for steel ones.
Apparently sram also offers something called an sb + option on its dub cranks with a 176.8 q. I would assume this is for super boost plus bikes. Never seen one though.
