Also this whole hating on 14" rims is a lack of knowledge and buying into misinformation. First of all 14" rims cause no more or no less pinch flats the 12" rims its the tires that wrap them is where the problem lies. In the off-road community the general rule of thumb is you want a 2:1 ratio tire to rim diameter. If the tire to rim ratio deviates to much from that ratio the user will run into problems. I run 26" tires on 14" rims and it is absolutely the best combo. To crunch some numbers my 26" BH 2.0's measure 26.75" @5psi. So on my 14" rim the ratio is 1.91:1. Don't buy into the misinformation 14" rims work just as good as 12" because there are pros and cons to each and basically the rider needs to make an informed purchase based on his riding style, needs, and environment.
And I'm willing to bet you are wrong. The OEM wheel has a 4+2 offset, and if you look at all the pictures, you will see the wheel is still at least an inch from being seated on the hub. A 4+3 offset gives you one more inch to play with, but it would still be against the tie rod end when fully seated on the hub.
As for 26" tires on 14" wheels being the absolute best, that is crap as well. If you just ride smooth, hard packed trails, I'm sure you would be on the money with that. My alleged "lack of knowledge" cost me $330 worth of tires, riding the exact same trails I had ridden for years with 12" wheels and 26" tires. Never had a flat prior to the two pinch flats, and haven't had one since going back to 12" wheels. Anyone who rides rocks knows the truth about the 26/14 inch combo. It simply is not suited for the job.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. You have been offered up some 7,000 words worth of proof in this thread that actually, visually, show problems, and yet you continue to deny that the problems are real. If you would kindly go buy yourself a 570 SP and show us all how you fit 12", 4+3 offset wheels on it, then I could eat a helping of crow. Since someone who does actually own a 570 SP showed us all that a 12" wheel doesn't fit, I think my crow dinner is safe.
Bob....BP405 is from New York. I would bet you he hasn't seen the size rocks you guys out west ride on. He probably rides on the interstate....and for that 14's and 26's will work just fine. Lets face it.....the more sidewall the less pinches.Just makes sense

Yeah, I know, and I shouldn't get my panties all wadded up over this topic. I just hate seeing wrong info put out there to people who might not know any better. I hope that sharing my experiences will maybe help someone else avoid the expensive problems that many of us have experienced, or at least understand the possible issues.

Add me to the list of guy's who've gotten a pinch flat with 14" wheels and 26" tires. I'll be going up to 27" or 28" tires.

Put them on a 12" wheel with a 4+3 offset and they will be perfect for your 570. I'm assuming they are 26-9-12 and 26-12-12 sizes.

Yes your right Bobx2. My wheel size is 12x7 per the dealer and the tires sizes front and rear like you said. Okay next question, any recommendations on this replacement wheel kit? What hot, cool, lighter and stronger these days?

Thanks,

personally I don't waste my time looking for wheels. they really do very little to affect the riding. All they are is lipstick on a pig for me. I'm not out there to look cool, I'm out there to have a good time so stock wheels are fine with me. besides, that's money that can be spent on other accessories that actually help riding. like a winch, hand guards, rack extensions, extra gas tanks, etc..

Good points. Even this tire guy said pretty much the same while comparing ITP, STI etc. basically getting the same output. In sure some will differ but seems like that's the consenus. Okay great thanks for the info y'all!!
