Just bought a 2016 RZR S 1000, came with the 12" aluminum wheels and the following Dirt Commander tires.

Front: 27x9-12
Rear: 27x11-12

Getting new wheels and tires for the RZR and would like to put the Dirt Commanders on my 570 Sportsman. There has been so much confusion and argument in regards to the factory RZR wheel offset, but the best answer I'm getting so far is 4+2 (front) and 6+2 (rear).

So before I go pulling wheels off the Sportsman, will the RZR wheels/tires fit?

Thanks!

Auh..... How about, if you actually own both machines... just pull off both wheels from one side of each machine and tell us!! First hand experience is always the best!! :wink1:

Then report back with machine models, wheel & tire sizes and the outcome... pics are always nice too!! :fing02:

As long as bolt pattern is the same it should be fine. Backspacing will be the next issue. If you had specs I could tell you.

(I could be wrong but I thought the XP chassis needed 14" rims due to the added brake caliper clearance requirements.)

Never mind, it looks like the 570 will take 12" rims.

Wow, genius answer bro, thanks! Never thought of that. Actually do not have jack stands at the moment and only 1 floor jack. Not interested in changing wheels on 2 machines just to see if they fit. Just thought someone has tried it before and could give me a simple yay or nay.

My RZR is a 1000 S, not the XP. 60" wide version. 12" wheels look stupid on it, so going with 14" wheels and 30" tires. I'll just try them out, but I don't think the fronts are going to fit. From what I have found, the RZR and Sportsman wheels are the same offset and if that's so, I don't think the front shocks will clear a 1" wider tire. At least it doesn't look like it and I'm not running spacers. Oh well, I'll upgrade the little Sportsman after I finish the RZR and get it some cool new shoes too.

Must be a millennial that you were trying to help Matt... I also thought that would be the easiest, best way to get the correct answer, but apparently too much effort involved. :biglaugh:

The bolt pattern is the same, you will prob need some 1in spacers up front to clear the front struts, should be no issues with the rear wheels.

Thanks for the like thought..... I'd comment further, but it's obviously not worth the effort. It'd just be easier if we wait for someone else to do it for us..... :sad2:

I literally LOL'ed at this.

You have the answer to your question right in front of you but don't want to put forth the effort?

Thought we were here to share experience and help each other out...guess not!

Spent almost 2 hours of potential riding time trying out the RZR wheels on the Sportsman and the fronts aren't going to work. Almost rubbing the shocks, less than an 1/8" clearance.

That is what we are here for. However, no one gets paid to be on here and not everyone that is a member spends all their free time here waiting for their moment of glory in answering someone's call for help.

While you spent 2 hours of potential ride time finding out that it wont work, you shared first-hand experience, not hearsay, and helped the forum community and the next guy who may have the same question :beer:

^^^^ This guy right here has the correct idea!

Your first hand experience with the product in hand is worth more than 20 guys saying "it should work" or "I heard it won't". You have actual and factual information that answers the question 100% without doubt.

The next person with this question will come across your post through Google and be happy that someone had the ability to actually check it out.


On a side note looks like you just need some 1'' spacers or different rims which ever you prefer. I know tons of people use spacers...I personally do not, but that is just me. I feel it puts unnecessary additional strain on front end components and adds extra parts that could potentially fail. I just purchased aftermarket rims and was done with it.

Uhm, I know it's over, but you could have just taken off one wheel, and tried it all around t on the Sportsman, UNLESS, the wheels have different offsets front to rear....
But as others have said, you are the one to have helped others, you tried, and told us you need spacers, excellent.
