STI Offering 2+5 Offset on HD2se Wheels for Polaris Owners
STI is now offering the 12×7 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.
STI says Polaris ATV riders have found that it’s difficult to use a front tire wider than nine 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 by six 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,” STI says in a release. “Sand dune enthusiasts or anyone else wanting a wider stance will appreciate the extra stability this wheel provides.”
The STI 12×7 2+5 HD2se is currently available in a gloss black finish with bright machined accents, topped with a tough gloss clear coat. It will soon be available in STI’s 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 12×7 has a 700-pound load rating.
