I'm needing new tires and wheels Empty
PostSubject: I'm needing new tires and wheels   I'm needing new tires and wheels EmptyFri Oct 16, 2015 2:52 pm

Well, after close to 2000 miles on my 30" Blackwaters it's time to get some new tires. Pitbull has a new 30"x10"x14" Growler that looks good. I had a set of Rockers previously and loved them. They also gave out certificates at the big forum ride for 15% off. Unfortunately, this also necessitates new wheels. I've been looking at the STI HD beadlocks with the Slik-kote. Amazon has some 14x7s for $92 ea. Should I get 4+3 or stay a little narrower with 5+2? Do the folks with the STIs like them? Any other wheels I should look at?

I had the 4+3's and went with the 5+2's due to the amount of mud they throw up and some of the tight trails we ride.

Love my STI HD Slik-Kote's on the S. I like the Rocktanes on the XP better than the Blackwaters on muddy rock climbs. When I wear the Rocktanes out, I am going with the 30's.

I wish I knew pit bull was coming out with 30s. I just bought a set of 30s roctanes. I used to run 27.5 growlers and loved them I just wanted larger tires and at the time pit bull didn't offer them

Yea like Greg said I'd get the 5-2 offset. U can't keep the mud off u from the 4-3. No problems with the sti beadlocks tho.

I'm not sure my buggy can handle tires that big unless I go with the portal axles like Joe did.

Reeko how do u like the 5+2 hd5 vs the 4+3. I am thinking of going with hd5 that are 5+4 offset because the stock rims are to narrow and don't look good on the 1k plus with the lift it actually narrowed it up a little

I have a question. Does the 5+2 rub the inside of the front A arms?

Short answer is no. According to Matthew at ATV outfitters there really is only one part number for the 14x7 STI hd beadlock slik-kote wheels. Some distributors have them listed as 5+2 and others have them listed as 4+3. That may not be the same for their other models though, can't answer that.

The hd5's are 5+2. Chip has them on his 1k with no rubbing. Andy has them on his 900 with no rubbing.

I can understand 5+2 working on a XP 1000. They come with a zero offset wheel. However, a XP 900 has a 4+2 front and 6+2 rear on a stock machine. If you put a 5+2 on the front then you add an inch of wheel to the inside. I know Mark had a set of 5+2 and it rubbed his shock mount.

Mine do not rub. I think they are basically the wheels as yours, right? Are yours rubbing? Are you looking at some new wheels too?

I have STI HD Beadlocks on my Rzr XP 900 and the only option is 4+3 on the 4/156 pattern.  How would you run 5/2 on the Jagged X?  I thought it also was 4/156 bolt pattern.

STI offers 5+2 in 4/110 or 4/137 but not 4/156.

I love my beadlocks but had to stop running low air pressure.  I cut 2 tires at the same time running 6 psi.  I now stick with 11 psi with beadlocks.  The positive is I don't have to worry about peeling a tire off the rim (been there and done that in the winter -- awful....).


As a sidenote I use extended flares so the 4+3 is fine.

I run STI HD5 5+2 on my Jagged X with no problems. I had 4+3 on it when I bought it but wanted it a bit more narrow.

No, I am not looking for new wheels, just asking questions. I think yours are the same offset as mine. 4+3

Yeah, I was thinking that they were the same except for the finish. You get your tires mounted yet?
