Picked up some new tread well not brand new.
Need to buy some 12" RSX rims.
If anyone knows where I can get some cheap steel ones, let me know

I don't know if 12" rims will fit on the RSX.

I got some base model RSX wheels, they are 12" about 30 bucks from my JD dealer. Get lug nuts also if you decide to get the ones from Deere, they are different also.

I am running 29.5 outlaw 2s on stock suspension set from the dealer. I installed the tires after I got the gator home. I know a guy here running 30" interco tractor tread looking tires. There is a guy in Florida that is running 30" backs on stock suspension.

So any of you running the larger than stock tires...........
Any concerns with a loss of power from the affected overall gear ration change?
A buddy has a RZR 800S and he went from 26's to 28's and he has seen a big loss in power. Now saying that, he also went with a wider tire than stock and went with big tires on the front too. 28-12's I think.

From what I have been reading on here, is that the 850 RSX will take 30's as long as the fronts stay ay 9" wide and the rears at 11"

I'm running 15" MSX wheels with BFG 215/75R T/A KM2 tires. It's a great setup for racing off road, mud and whatever you throw at them.

I'd love some 29.5 Outlaws, but theyre on backorder for the next couple of months. Thinking about going with some ITP Mega Mayhems. I have a couple buddies that run them on their Rhinos and Rangers, they seem to pull good. I've always had luck when ordering from ITP.

Those are a wide set of tires. Thing looks mean, too bad they didn't work out.

No problems here and I am running 29.5 Outlaw 2s at stock widths. The RSX will throw rooster tails easily. First time I rode with the laws, I pulled a Jeep Grand Cherokee out 3 times.

29.5 Outlaws or Outlaw 2s on backorder. Outlaw 2s almost always stay on back order.

I hate to hear that. I don't know about the 29.5 Outlaws cause I have only ran the Outlaw 2s. It might be because they are so wide.

Is any one running wheel spacers in these machines? I have seen some offered I wonder if there would be any problems running them? or if it would cause any damage?

I always try to stay away from wheel spacers because of the added stress on the CV axles especially with a tire like the Outlaw or Silverback on it.

Good for stability, but like Bwd said, not so good with aggressive tires. I have not heard of anyone running any yet.
