Well, we have the final answer. You cannot put 12" 570 wheels on an SP. Tried to push the wheel on and the bolts wouldn't go through. You can see from behind that the steering arm will not clear inside the rim. So now we know for sure. :)

Yeah this doesn't prove anything as far as the 570sp and 12" rims are concerned. It only proves that stock rims don't fit. I'm willing to bet a 4+3 offset on a 12" rim will work on a 570sp.

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.
So the guys including me that have had pinch flats on 14's and not 12's has no knowledge of this and are giving out false information. I have both sizes and the 14's give me double the trouble as the 12's. Since I don't have any knowledge of this I guess I need to stop posting.
