Hi guys, I need some help. My friend has a 05 sportsman 800. Stock tires in front were 26x8x12 and in the rear 26x11x12. We ordered new ITP 589's. In the front (because 26x8x12 are not offered)we went with 26x9x12 figuring 1/2 inch per side would be no problem...Well they are a problem. We are way to tight to the ball joint. Can someone advise me on a possible wheel spacer solution. He doesn't want to buy new wheels as suggested cure. Not sure if there is any issues in the back yet as he was mainly concerned with the front.

Thanks a lot.

Sparts Sportsman, Had the same problem with my '05. I hot a set of 1" spacers for about $ 90. Check this out on ebay.



290401377284 here is the auction # on ebay. Buy a set like these, not the vinyl, and not the stud extenders or you will have problems.

I encountered the same problem. I put on 1" front wheel spacers from superatv.com for my new 26x9x12 tires and it worked great.
