Whats up everyone. I just bought 2016 700 in September and I am having a blast with it. Already put a bag on the back, winch, front rack add-on. Just bought some 26?" tires and looking for a set of rims. I am just trying to find out what size rims I can put on the front. I was reading about the 5+2 stuff and I understand what everyone is talking about. Just looking to see what others have done. If you guys can tell me what a factory wheel spec is I would appreciate it. Thanks again, Phil

Welcome to the forum.


I do know that my factory wheels are 6.5"x12" in front and 7.5"x12" in the rear but the offset or backspacing I am not sure.

Yep I think I have it all figured out today. Ordered my rims and they should be here by Tuesday and the tires by Wednesday.

Hello everyone! I am one of many waiting on my Kodiak to come in to my local dealer, I have ordered a 2021 Kodiak 700 EPS SE in the orange, there has not been an orange one in my area but there have been a handful of orange Viking's and Grizzly's so I am excited to get my Kodiak.

Congrats on the new Kodiak! Hopefully I will hear from my Yamaha dealer soon for mine.

My records are a 5/2 offset stock. The ITP Delta steel wheels in 7x12 are a 4/3 offset
That effectively laterally places the tire to the hub. Also placed 1in spacers on the front .love the improved stability and lessened understeer. Need for lateral stability on off camber slope and lower center of gravity kept me on stock tire sizes. Each person's riding style, terrain and work needs dictates the way we each modify or rides. Increased front track 3in. Welcome to the forums

Super nice looking combo on there, goes really good with the Kodiak's color.
