04 HPX bigger rims for better tire options

Looking for info on what other model rims will fit on my 04 HPX. Stock rims are junk and need replacing. I'm new to these rigs. Thanks

Stock rims have a 4x4,5 bolt pattern.
Would advise on keeping same offset or deeper

5x5.5 would be great, S10, Blazer, Chevy Astro!

I guess what I was looking for was an interchangability info. What wheels would fit from a later machine etc. I'm having no luck finding front OE rims. Going to make some phone calls tomorrow.

Check with etrailer or similar, 5x4.5 is a common trailer wheel. I also have read early Ford Ranger rims are also 5x4.5

Well firstly the big aluminium wheels from john deere fit

Ive seen someone put 29 inch tires on them aswell and those tires should fit on the hpx too

Secondly you could also put on some monster rims from one of the bigger lawn mowers.
I will be changing my neighbours wheels with wheels from a jd lawnmower soon theyre 12 inch dia with 26-12-12 tires.

John deere has plenty of options and most you can buy pretty cheap

My local JD dealer only has OE rims. Steel $120 a piece. Not happening. Called a couple of aftermarket people, nobody has anything. Scouring NH, VT & Maine CL also.

I'm checking into offset & backspacing on these

Those are oe rims, just not for the hpx.
Just ask for 855d alloy rims and he should have them.
Theres also the black alloy rims.

I dont know about the backspacing though

I'm finding that the HPX is an odd duck when it comes to wheels. Been looking at wheel adaptors. Seems like switching to 4/156 pattern opens up all kinds of possibilities for me. CL is full of nice atv rims with nearly new tires for 300-500 bux

When i get a chance this weekend I'm going to test fit a 5 lug trailer rim to the gator and check clearance.

Sorry I am too late to the thread. I upgraded my HPX to 12" wheels from Summit Racing. The wheels are ITP Delta, 5x4.5, 7" wide, gloss black. They cost around $30-$35 each. I also bought new metal center caps to go with the wheels, forgot the brand, but about $4 or $5 each.

Do you recall what the offset is on the wheels?
