    WTB Douglas rims 12x6

    I'm looking for a pair of DWT .190 wheels with the following configuration. 12x6, 4b+2n with a 4/156 bolt pattern. (Polaris uses this pattern)

    edit...Some additional measuring revealed that a 5b+2n offsets would work too

    If you have any, Please PM me.

    sounds similar to what the SAE baja buggies use, you may have some luck, I will check to see what I have, also if you are handy you can make a drill jig bolted to whatever pattern is in the wheels and but in a second pattern.

    Appreciate you taking the time to look for me... I'm starting to think the pattern change you mentioned may be my only option. I tried rotating a 3b+5n dougls rim I had 180 degrees, figuring I could move the valve stem (drill new hole, fill old hole, doable). But when I tried it, the "bell" (think thats what it's called) of the rim hit on the brake caliper. Uuugghh

    I checked, the ones I have are 2,4 offset so that may be the way to go, maybe contact a nearby university see if they have the baja program, they may have some old wheels to get rid of? you don't know until you ask

    Does the 4" side have a "bell" that would hit a caliper or is it straight flat ? I checked the local university and they don't participate in the baja, there doing the solar powered. Interesting, just not my "cup of tea" lol

    Thanks

    I did, nice folks. After giving them half dozen numbers and being told "no, thats discontinued" I asked if they were going out of business, jokingly. He siad no, just limited 12" moving forward. So I asked, what about the 14" wheels I asked about and was told "out of stock". he said they were moving there manufacturing equipment and to check back around the end of the year.

    So I'm searching the used market (flea bay, blogs, etc). looked at custom wheels...$$$$

    I found a OEM polaris wheel (#1521106-067), that my research indicates would work perfect (4.5b+1.5n), other than the $ 150.00 price and 17 lbs. still confirming things on that option.

    Any chance you pulled one of these off of one of your Polaris buggies and are not using?

    Interesting on them moving their mfg equipment. I wonder if it's going over seas or coming back? - or if they're just moving locations. We had issues with Lance Campers a few years back because of this same thing - moving mfg facilities.

    As far as a take off - nope, have none and haven't ever seen that particular one.

    I would call them straight, there is a little bit of a "bell" at the root, call it 1" x 1"
