I have 2016 polaris sportsman 570. i recently purchased 2018 polaris scrambler wheels and tires. the lug pattern is the same but the front tire rubs on the shock. Can i use these with a spacer ?? im not sure the lug bolt will be long enough ??

Yes, you probably can. Usually, the spacer bolts to the vehicle hub then the wheel bolts to the spacer. So the lug bolts from the machine only hold the spacer on. The spacer then has it's own lug bolts to hold the wheel.

If it's more then a 1/4" that's needed you'll need a spacer with it's own lugs.

Good point! If you are replacing stock steel wheels with aluminum ones you will probably need longer wheel studs anyway.
