I had a bit of a scare this weekend on a big rock, and thought I ripped the sidewall. Thank God I didn't since I was in the middle of nowhere..... with no spare tire. It made me think I should be more proactive here. Here's my thoughts:

Carry this spare: UTV Spare Tire and Wheel - Polaris / Honda / Can Am / Yamaha / Kawasaki / Arctic Cat

It doesn't have the beadlock obviously, but wonder if anybody on this site has or used one in an emergency. I just want to have something that an get me home just in case.

The only thing I can't seem to find on this rim the depth, as fronts are 6.5" and rears 8.0".

Thanks for the help

It doesn't specify the lug pattern. Need to make sure it is 4x110 lug pattern if your machine is a 16 -18. Not sure what year machine you own. Spare is definitely a must have and has saved my butt MANY times.

It is a 4x 110. The sales rep said it's a 5+2 and the wheel depth is 7". That's pretty spot on for the front so I'll think I'll be okay. Thanks!

One more thing. It may require the use of splined lug nuts instead of your stock lug nuts. I found this to be true on my aftermarket spare the first time I went to use it in the field. I was able to make it on finger tightened lugs and just stopped periodically to check them and finger torque again. I sold that spare and just use a stock rim now. Check it out before you need it....

youll also want to make sure you get the 14" wheel and tire as a 12" wont fit. and if your looking for a spare tire carrier, fastlabutv.com has a great one
