Recommended Posts

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.

    • Seeing the fish is probably my preference since I would probably release it anyway. The only unfortunate thing would be not having a photo of it. 
    • I stick pretty simple on full chickens.... A couple of pads of garlic butter under the skin and a little olive oil rub down on DRY skin (very important to have dry skin if you want it to be crispy when you are done). Seasoned the big one with Lawry's and the small one with Weber Kick'n Chicken. Heated the grill up to 375. Both birds were done in a little over an hr..... Pretty cheap and easy - and the wife is getting sick of pork so,,,,,,
    • Agreed... that is why I took the gamble on a brand that no one had heard of at the time... but the Big Horn grills are getting picked up by more and more vendors. Hopefully they don't figure out that they are giving away profit and decide to raise their prices! On the flip side, have you shopped for a gas grill these days? Holy smokes! The char-broil 3 burner basic that cost $129.99 3 years ago is now $209.99... what gives?  
    • I bought a motorcycle from a guy a few years back only to find out he never turned the title over in his name when he bought it. If I remember right I had to write to the DMV main office with a copy of the bill of sale before they would share the past owners of the bike. Then it took some detective work but I was able to track down the first owner and get them to write a new bill of sale.  Also had an old utility trailer I bought the same way, but for that I just re-registered it as a home made trailer.  At least there is Goggle now to look up some names if you can get them. Good Luck.  
    • dat looks darn good!!!!   what seasonings this time??  
    • My concern with the Statement of Facts sheet is it talked about watercrafts with titles.    I was a first time privet party boat buyer and saw a good deal. Got over eager and didn’t really know what to look for. The hull is a 97. I purchased it with only a bill of sale. When I brought the bill of sale into the DMV they said sorry can’t put this in your name or issue registration. The name on this bill of sale is not the actual owner.   Everything I’m reading about the application process requires actually knowing the owners actually name and information and requiring his signature. I have now idea who the real owner is and on top of that the seller is appearing to be mia...   Is there anything I can do or am I just SOL and learned my lesson the hard way?
