tires

2 posts in this topic

so i cut a tire down last weekend and need to buy some new tires. wanted to buy some take offs, but having 10" rims in back no one has any. does anybody know if 12" rims would fit on a 99 explorer? are the bolt patterns the same? are atv tires like cars. polaris rims fit only polaris? where should i go to get new tires? do you mount them yourself or take them somewhere? sorry for babbling i am a newbie to the atv world. thanks chad

From what I could find, you Explorer has a 4x4 bolt pattern. Other machines on the POlaris list show 4x156. Not sure if Polaris is using both metric and standard units of measure here, but the 4x156 is 4 holes by 156mm between each hole.

The closest I could find that shares the same pattern are mostly sport machines and lighter duty (250-350) utilities that also use the 4x156 pattern.

Your best bet would be to find a tire that meets your intended useage and go from there. Places like Dennis Kirk, Highlifter, Motosport, Rocky Mountain ATV, just to name a few.

Shop around. You'll find prices vary greatly between those listed but will match a competitors ad if you provide the info.

A quick search for "Polaris Explorer bolt pattern" in the most common search engine known to mankind will yield you the same info that I found. It explains tire sizing and bolt patterns.

Another option is to find another machine/brand with a solid rear axle that has hubs that will fit onto your shafts but has a different bolt pattern.

    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all.
