Default Rzr rims on my sportsman

I found a set of 2013 rzr 800 wheels for a great deal. I've been searching, but just cant quite figure out how they will fit.
I have a 2006 polaris sportsman 450.
My current wheels/tires are:
12x6 rim with 26x8x12 PXT tires in front.
12x8 rim with 26x11x12 PXT tires in rear.
As far as I know, the rzr wheels are 12x7, and a 4x156 bolt pattern.
Besides lugnuts and studs, does anybody know if I will end up running into any issues fitting these on my bike?

I put some RZR wheels on my 04 Polaris ATP had to put in longer wheel studs Polaris #7517871 [3/8 x24 x1.73]
had to get a set of new TAPERED lug nuts to mount the new rims 12mm to the 3/8 studs PUREOFFROAD.COM [ITP LUG4P]
had to grind locating lugs off original aluminum hubs to get lug nuts fully threaded threw lug nut cause newer rims centers are not machined out in back to fit outside and also had to stack 3/8 fender washer on studs to space rim out about 1/8 to fit better on hubs
A little bit of work but a different look Hope this helps

Awesome. Thank you very much for the part #s.
I couldn't go wrong for $95 for the set.


I plan on stripping them, and spraying them gloss black.

Hey Powerranger check out the back of them they might be machined out already for the 4 locating lugs for the steel rims eliminating the need for the washers and grinding. The rims I put on were used were on 12mm studs needing the use of those open taped lug nuts. The outside diameter of Std. Polaris 3/8 chrome lug nuts almost were the size of hole in rim about 5/8 not leaving much taper to bear either way think you will have to go with longer studs steel wheel lug nuts are too short. You need at least 3/8x1.50 PN#[7518378] and you use Polaris factory chrome lug nuts on them.
sorry about the confusion I needed the [7517871] 3/8 x1.73 ones cause of my shimming situation

Here's what the backside of the rims looks like.

Looks like you will be good without hub modifications still think you will need the 1.50 [1-1/2 "] lugs and the tapered lug nuts of your choice. Did you get lugs with the wheels ?
It is amazing how the rims can change the look of the bike. Look forward to seeing the finished look

Yep, figured I would need studs and lugnuts. Didn't come with any.
I really appreciate your help. Saves me a lot of time and questions, trying to find the right stuff.
