I just purchased a 2013 Sportsman 500 and really didnt like the stock wheels... well a buddy sold me his 2012 XP 850 OEM take offs for $100. didnt have a single mile on them and just needed cleaned up. They were in his garage since he purchased his 4 wheeler last year... What a steal..
I had a few issues.
1. clearance ~ they were touching my A arms in front. needed about 3/4" more room.
2. Tie rod ends ~ they were poking out center cap holes further than the cap would allow.
3. The Notches or "nipples" on the factory wheel hub was hitting the back of the wheel and would not allow it to sit flush.
To fix all of these issues i ordered 1.5" wheel spacers.
1st company sent them wrong. they sent me stud spacers and not the wheel spacers. NOT WHAT I WANTED AND WOULDNT SUGGEST RUNNING THEM. I returned them for a refund since they sent the wrong parts
So then i ordered them again from an AMAZING SELLER ON EBAY. Great email response time and shipping was fast an free.
Here is the link of what i purchased. I ordered 2 kits. They say 3" but they are 1.5" each
