Wheel and tire question

Recommended Posts

I have a 05 sportsman 700 carb and I also have tires and rims from an 19 Polaris General. Bolt pattern is the same. Do I need to change out the studs to be bigger?

I don't think you would have to change the studs. As long as the bolt pattern is correct and they are long enough then why change them ?

The stud on the quad seems to be too small. It looks as if the studs need to be bigger so it fits better once the camferred lug nut centers it. It just doesn't look right and I have learned to trust your instincts. 😁

Ahhh ok, now i see what your saying.  Well you can cross reference the stud part numbers on www.partzialla.com and compare and see if the same numbers come up.    
My guess is there would probably be a difference in the thickness and even the length.   I looked up the part numbers and they do look different.  
I was not sure on the 19 model, you said 19 general?

if you had the regular steel wheels on your sportsman then you will need different rims or longer studs.  having the lug only 3 or 4 turns on the stud will not work as you will probably strip the stud when you put a breaker bar on to torque them down. diameter of the studs should be the same.

I have the complete set of tires and rims from the 2019 General. So, it does seem logical to change out the studs.

So I received the new lug studs, M12-1.5, for the 2019 general wheels.

Does anyone know off hand what proper drill size for seating the new lug studs?

I would buy a cheap micrometer on amazon for $10 bucks to check the size of the base of the stud.   Then  go a hair smaller on the drill bit.

Okay guys. Got things figured out and wanted to share it with you so if you guys wanted to upgrade your rims on your quad, it is totally doable. 

So I had 2019 Polaris General tires and rims, I purchased new studs from partzilla, 2.99 each, I then punched them out, the old studs.

I used a 17/32 drill bit for the new studs. I built a wooden jig that the hub sat in, and used two 2x4's to lock it in so it wouldn't spin with the drill press.  I didn't have a press, so I used hardened washers, a stack of them, just enough to get a full nut's worth. I bought a new set of lug nuts, but for setting the studs, I bought two nuts. Half way through, I changed to the new nut. I used my impact and seated them right in.

Threw the wheels and tires on and it looks awesome.

      I have a 2018 Sportsman 570 SP Hunters Edition. I bought the quad new in August of 2018 and put around 20 miles on it with no issues. In early January of this year the quad was acting as if it had a bad battery even though it had been plugged into a tender. I checked the battery and it tested well so I took it to the dealership for warranty service. They had it for almost a month. They determined the quad had a bad EPS unit and swapped it out. Then they told me that the wire for the EPS needed to be updated as they could not program the new unit with the old wire. After the wire came in dealership told me they were still having troubles programming. After another week and a half they told me that they had consulted several times with engineers from Polaris and found a workaround and that the quad was ready for pickup. I contacted Polaris to inquire about the warranty being extended as it was in the shop for a month. They extended the 6 month factory warranty for an additional 3 months. I picked the quad up and the dealership said that the 2018 SP editions were known to have issue a with the EPS units but believed that they had fixed mine. I had it back for around a month and took it out a couple times for short rides and everything seemed fine. I parked it again for a few days and when I went to start it same issues (acting like the battery is no good and won’t start, when I jump start no power steering). Took it back to dealership and waiting to hear what the diagnosis is this time as well as their plan to fix this permanently. Just wondering if anyone else has had issues similar to mine or can give me some advice. Thanks in advance!
