So I want better tires for ace. Anyone know if SIXR 14” Black Wheel with Moto Attack 2880088
2877409 $979.98 Would make me wider?

Other suggestions from you guys would be appreciated!

What is the offset - front and rear? Wheel width? Tire width?
You have not provided enough information to even make a guess.
Chances are nobody here will be able to answer it anyway.

Try to match the stock offset and go thinner on the rears (discussed in the other thread you asked about tires in), if you want to stay narrow.
This thread also has a bit more information and pictures.

Oh, you're looking at a Polaris accessories catalog. I see.

The Moto Attack 14" looks like it comes in two sizes - 26x9, and 26x11.
First, 26" tires will rob some of your power. You get ground clearance in return. Is it worth it?
Second, stock tires are 9" front, 10" rear. So if you get the 11s, that will make you wider.
If you get 9" all around, and match wheel offsets, you'll be fine.

The SIZR 14" wheel is 7 inches wide, so that's a good start - same as the stock wheel.
But it doesn't list the bolt pattern and offset.
A quick Google search found similar wheels (machined instead of black) that have 4/156mm bolt pattern, so that's promising but can't rely on it.
The offset listed on the ones I found via Google are listed in mm instead of 4+3, 5+2 etc. I would have to do some more searching to figure out how to convert that.

I think your best bet is to educate yourself as best you can about wheel offset and bolt patterns visa Google searches, and then go talk to your dealer's parts dept face to face about these wheels/tires.
You might be able to do it with a phone call, but usually they're more patient and thorough when you're standing at their counter.
And you have to know something of what you are talking about first to ask the right questions and be able to detect bullshit answers.

Here's a good start:
Let me google that for you :)

Stay with stock sizes or narrower rears as Scoundrel said. The bigger tires will suck a lot of power that the ACE can ill afford to lose. The Popo aftermarket wheels for the ACE look sharp, impressive, but there's already one owner who is thinking about replacing his already cause they suck too much power.

If the stock wheels are OK by you, slap some Bighorn tires on OR Bighorn 2.0s and you'll be golden.

I just got back from picking up some accessories at the dealer.
While I was there I asked them about offsets and bolt patterns for Polaris accessory wheels.
Unfortunately, Polaris doesn't make that information available to them. So the only way your dealer is going to know is if they've stocked them, measured and cataloged them, which is extremely unlikely.

Given the amount of time and effort I spent looking for aftermarket wheels with the right offset and bolt pattern, I'd say the effort is not futile, but it is very, very difficult to find the right offset, right bolt pattern, and right size in a wheel that you will find attractive.

I bought aftermarket aluminum wheels for two reasons: bling and toughness. The way I ride, I bend the crap out of stock wheels that have the curled metal rims around the bead. That results in bead leaks.
As Fly said, BigHorns will help, because their sidewalls are stiff. Not as much with the 2.0. I guess there are some tires out there with even stiffer sidewalls than the BH, but you pay for it with weight and ride comfort.

If you're OK with 51" in the front and 52.5" in the back, that's pretty easy to do, and here's the recipe:
12x7 wheels with 4+3 offset and 4/156 bolt pattern.
25x8x12 tires.
Don't forget the lug nuts. Your stockers probably won't fit. When you select a wheel at RMATV, they suggest the right nuts.

Another benefit you get from this configuration is that a single spare will fit all four corners.

If he doesn't beat the crap out of his ride, either BH tires on stock wheels will be golden for him. Same size, not heavy, VERY durable, great ride, great traction unless he's into butt deep muddin.

You must ride hard Scoundrel ! Remind me not to let you ride my machines. :nono: LOL.

Surely somebody who has already bought aftermarket wheels for ACE can tell us what the bolt pattern and offsets are >? Should be on the sales order ?

It does. If scoundrel;s info is correct you should be able to find wheels in that offset.

Here's some. STI ought to have others.

STI Makes Big News with the All-New HD4

STI offers a wheel offset the keeps the RAZRs at 50 inches so maybe that wheel will keep you at 50 or less.... You'ld have to ask STI and/or somehow, someway determine what the stock offset on ACE is. Seems weird nobody knows. You could measure it yourself if you had the tire off one of your stocker rims. Basically you measure from the seam, visible on the rim's inside once the tire is off, measure to the inside and outside rim edge.

Yeah, I do tend to ride hard. I've been mellowing out some the last couple of years. Some, I say.

I posted some details in two other threads:

This thread also has a bit more information and pictures.
The wheel size is 12x7, bolt pattern is 4/156, offset for the rear is 5+2 and the front offset is 4.5 + 2.5. Good Luck.

Here is ITP's entire wheel chart for 2013.
You'll need Microsoft Excel or open source equivalent to read it.

I'll put a picture of the 4/156mm bolt pattern section below. I've taken the liberty of highlighting the only ones that will make your rig narrower.

Please note the following:
1. NONE of them are 12"
2. MOST of the ones that would be narrower are 6" instead of 7". That would still work fine with 8" tires, but will result in a bit of sidewall bulge. Not more than the rear stockers though.
3. There is ONLY ONE model that has a 5+2 offset, so if you want a matched set with stock offset in the rear, here is the wheel you're buying:

Like it? I hope so. It's nice, but I prefer the SS312 myself.
Note that you'd have to go all the way up to 15" to use those. They don't make that one smaller.
You might rub your tires on your fenders, and you're not gonna get the holeshot with those on there.
I wonder if anyone makes low profile tires for ATVs? I know some guys who live in Southern California who would dig that look.

It is possible that 4+2 wheels all the way around might work out OK.
But Rocky Mountain ATV, the largest retailer of ATV wheels and tires in the western half of the country, doesn't stock them.
So you're going to special order them. I have no idea how much you'll pay for them.

That wasn't too bad bendage.

Anyway, with 14 inch rims he could still put stock height tires on it right ? and thus not lose any power...... Those ITP SS would look bad azz on ACE, IMO.

You're a wealth of info you Scoundrel !

There's one company, forget who, that makes wheels to any specs. Scoundrel probably knows.

That was BEFORE they got so bad I had to take them off and recycle them.
Once, I had to take the wheel off of the ATV and pound out the flat spot on the inside of the wheel with a rock so that the bead would seat again and it would hold air.
Never had that problem with stiff aftermarket aluminum ones.

There weren't any 14's with a 5+2 offset. Have to go up to 15 to get that. And unless someone makes a low profile tire (probably have to put a car tire on there), he'd lose power.
Even if he could find a low profile ATV tire, the wheels would take a lot more rock hits with low profiles on there.


You're a wealth of info you Scoundrel !
Nobody's ever accused me of slouching on product research when it really mattered to me.

If you guys find a setup that doesn't rob power or make the vehicle wider, is tough, and doesn't look like ass, let me know. I'm all over it. If it's pretty. :)

I use the stock RZR LE aluminum front wheels (12x6) on all four sides! They are the same offset and weigh 2 lbs less than the steel ones!!
