What is the bolt pattern and wheel offset?

    Just checked ITP's chart.
    They don't have SS312s that are 12x7, 4/156, and 5+2.

    So if this becomes more important, I will have to replace all four wheels, and begin my search.
    But I have a feeling it would be really hard to find this combination, and selection would be VERY limited so I might not find ones that I liked the look of with those specs.

    Instead, I'm just going to hope this works out well enough.

    I'm not sure they'll work for the ACE though. Not much clearance in the front with those struts. Might need spacers which would blow the whole thing.

    This is a 4+3 offset wheel (below). A 5+2 MIGHT fit. A 6+1? I doubt it.

    I decided to play around a bit, and I can now say with reasonable certainty that 6+1 offset will NOT work.
    I put one of the stock rears on the front. It's a 5+2 offset with a 25x10x12 tire on it.
    The wheel is, in my opinion, uncomfortably close to the strut. It's hard to see it in this photo, but there is about 3/16" of clearance in there. Any flexing or bending, and you're scraping.
    The tire is actually touching the spike they put on the strut at the base of the spring. Of course it's a 10" tire. An 8" would not touch, but it would be close, and I bet under stress, flexing around corners, it would rub.

    In my opinion, the best aftermarket setup for the ACE would be 4+2 offset and 8" tires all around.
    Maybe 5+2 in the back if you want a tiny bit of sidewall bulge to protect your wheels.

    Oh, I also compared a stock wheel/tire with roughly the same size STI/BigHorn.
    This is a 4.5+2.5 wheel with a 25x8x12 Dunlop on it, next to a 4+3 wheel with a 25x8x12 BigHorn on it.

    Scoundrel thank you so much for your groundbreaking work. Your presentation of the facts, with pictures, is outstanding. This thread will surely save people time and money on the Ace wheel and tire setups. Thanks!

    I have a question about wheels and you seem like the guy to ask. I also have an ACE and I am looking at buying some aftermarket rims and I cannot seem to get any specs for this thing. I am looking at buying a set of ITP SS212 (12x7) rims with a 4+3 back space and 28" Silverback Mudders. Polaris told me the largest tire I can get is 26" what is your take on this?

    Welcome to the forum!

    I don't have any direct experience with going with larger tires.
    My suspicion is that anything larger than 26" will rub on the front while turning. They crammed things in there pretty tightly to make this machine trail-narrow.

    It looks like I might have been able to manage a 5+2 in the front, but it might have rubbed on the strut when the tires flex during cornering.

    One of these days, I might try to find a pair of these wheels in 5+2, swap two tires out, and try them on both front and rear to see how that worked out before buying another pair.
    I guess it depends on how much trouble I have on 50" trails, and gates/bridges that are 50" wide.

    I really like those tires. Keep noticing them everywhere. I'm not crazy about the look of the hub showing on the stock wheel, but not sure which one is suitable to use on the Ace. How are you liking the shoes so far?

    There's a reason you see them everywhere. They're awesome.
    Those are Maxxis Bighorn tires. I LOVE the Bighorn tires.
    NOT the 2.0, the originals. The 2.0 version is thinner and lighter, made because some people didn't like how heavy the originals are.

    Are they the best for every terrain? Nope.
    Paddles are better for sand, huge ITP MudLites are better for mud, PitBulls are better for extreme riding in razor-sharp coal rocks on the east coast.
    But if you don't want to change out your tires depending on where you will be riding, you want an excellent all-around tire that will perform pretty well in every terrain type and will last a very long time, then you get Maxxis Bighorns.

    The sidewalls are stiffer than stock tires so they do less knuckling under on sidehills and sharp corners.
    That also helps avoid sidewall rips, especially if you're a few PSI low and didn't notice.

    The edges of the tread blocks round off just like any other tire, but because of how big the tread blocks are, they continue to provide excellent traction well after they're rounded off.
