I purchased a set of bighorns last week . going to swap the bighorns ob my stock wheels over to my wife's 2013 850xp ho to replace her stock tires. does anyone know if the ITP ss212's are heavier than the stock rims for an 2013 850 xp ho le? as my wife has the identical quad that I have i'm leaning on buying a set of the ITP 212 in matte black and mounting 26 inch bighorns on mine


I also noticed that its 14x6 as compared to other wheels that 14x7 ?

would I need to install a clutch kit with that tire wheel combo?

whats the offset on your 216's... and how much wider did it make your front and rear ?

the ss212 is 14x6 front 4.0 +2 and 14x8 rear 5.0 +3
i trying to find out how roughly much these will stick out further in front and back

am also considering the polaris sixr which is 14x7 front and rear 4.0 +3

so would these stick out more or less than the ss212?

thanks

If you go with either of those wheels, all im gonna say is hope you like to get muddy. Heres a front view of my old XP with the SS212s and BH 2.0s.

I went back to my stock rims because of the offset on my aftermarket rims, It also affected my EPS, it would not work while stopped with the offset aftermarket rims (did work while moving), and now on the stock rims it works way better, probably just due to the torque of the wheels sitting out wider. (mine was at 54" wide in the rear)

which rims did you have on? im now leaning towards the sti HD3 as comments I've seen in the forum is that they seem to stick out less than the ITP ss212's....
I've got bad eyesight and colorblind and maybe its the angle of some of the pictures I've seen but in many pictures it looks like the width of the front outside tire edge to outside tire edge is wider than the rears.

I had ITP C7 rims. Bobx knows which rims to get for the XP's that do not stick out very far..

No need for a clutch kit with 26" Bighorns and aftermarket wheels. My 26.5" Rockers are quite a bit heavier that my Bighorns and I do not have a clutch kit, and do not need one.
