STI now offers the 12x7 HD2se wheel in a unique 2+5 offset, which addresses several tire and wheel issues for Polaris owners. No other aftermarket wheel is currently available in these dimensions.
For example, Polaris ATV riders have found that it’s difficult to use a front tire wider than 9 inches. A tire that’s 10 inches wide or more will cause clearance problems and rub the chassis on the inside. The STI HD2se 2+5 wheel allows the use of wider tires, often the desired setup for mud riders. A set of these wheels also widens the stance of by 6 inches over stock, adding lateral stability without the need for spacers.
Polaris RZR owners will benefit from this wheel as well. Many aftermarket wheels create clearance issues with the right rear engine mount. Instead of grinding chassis parts or taking other questionable measures, it’s much more convenient to simply bolt on a set of HD2se 2+5 wheels. Sand dune enthusiasts or anyone else wanting a wider stance will appreciate the extra stability this wheel provides.
The STI 12x7 2+5 HD2se obviously adds another level of style for Polaris ATV and UTV owners alike. This wheel is currently available in a durable gloss black finish with bright machined accents, topped with a tough gloss clear coat. It will soon be available in STI’s dazzling iChrome finish. A matching HD logo wheel cap is included with every wheel. Like all STI HD Alloy series wheels, the lightweight HD2se features inner and outer heavy-duty wheel lip reinforcement and comes with a lifetime structural warranty; this 12x7 has a 700-pound load rating.
STI Tire & Wheel is transforming sand tire technology with the introduction of the all-new Vortex V-Roll line of tires. The Vortex V-Roll is a game changer for owners of large displacement UTVs. Designed specifically for big-bore side-by-sides, this tire delivers the high performance needed for heavier, high-horsepower applications. Key to the effectiveness of the V-Roll is its sizing. This lightweight, 4-ply tire is being introduced in a 27x11-14 front and a 27x14-14 rear. By mounting on a 14-inch wheel, the result is a super-wide, high-flotation footprint that keeps the machine on top of the sand instead sinking in. This also achieves a very low-profile sidewall, which enhances handling by minimizing tire flex and lateral roll. The sizing ensures proper front and rear brake clearance for all popular UTV applications. And there’s no denying the “cool” factor of the many popular and stylish 14-inch wheels on the market today (including STI’s own HD Alloy Series). The 11-inch-wide front V-Roll features a rib to provide excellent steering response and minimal rolling resistance. The 14-inch-wide rear V-Roll uses eight paddles for an ideal balance of traction and handling. The paddles are molded in, which greatly increases durability. The Vortex V-Roll is very competitive in terms of both performance and pricing. It even comes standard with a one-year manufacturer’s limited warranty.STI Vortex V-Roll tires are available through us ATV Tires.Biz
