Spare/replacement wheel(s)

Hi all! I am a new member here and have really enjoyed and learned a lot from reading all of your posts. One thing that I have not really been able to figure out, however, is what type of spare wheel setup I should get? I have a Renegade R4 with the stock wheels/tires (27x8-12). I usually ride solo (new rider, not many "friends" in the area) and am concerned with getting stuck somewhere with a blown tire or something. I'd like to keep one spare wheel/tire setup on-board (mounted to the roof rack) in case I need it. Does anyone have a suggestion as to the brand, size, etc of the rim and the tire? I'm not looking to replace my entire setup, just need a spare! Thanks!

Oh, and while we're at it, does anyone have any opinions on the "Tractor Tunes" radio set up? I am interested in it as it seems fairly easy to install (being all one piece and everything), but $400 is a lot to spend on something without knowing much about it.

Hi Andrew and welcome. You should be able to buy a stock spare wheel off any Joyner Dealer or ITP is a good aftermarket choice. You will need to get a 27-8-12 front wheel spare because it will fit front and rear. A rear wont fit on the front. I would keep a spare as low down as possible to keep the centre of gravity as low as possible or get some wheel spacers as shown in the 2nd link.

Here are some links:

R4 Renegade 800 Accessories - No Limits Powersports

Accessories by Vehicle, Renegade R4 - Silver Bullet Motorsports, Inc - Yuma AZ - Team Joyner USA

Fix-A-Flat - Car Care Products- A easy way to fix a flat tire Not sure if this works but sound good.

I can't help with the radio.

Cheers Mike.

I have sold quite a few tractor tunes setups to customers.. everyone has installed it and not had anyproblems except for one.. and he had a bad radio from the box that they promptly replaced for him.. All in all I call it a good setup and have used it before myself.. no special skills needed to install

      Hello all. I am new to this forum and new to SxS in general. I recently purchased an 16 Odes Dom 800 with the issue of a prominent knocking noise at idle and it’s very jerky in forward and reverse gears. It does not sound like an engine knock. I bought it cheap knowing about this problem with hopes of it being a cheap and fairly easy fix that I can do myself. Would a bad belt be the cause this symptom? I’m looking for a starting point to begin diagnosing and fixing the problem. I recorded a video of it but am not sure if I can post it on the forum. Any help is greatly appreciated.

      I would like to perform most all my own servicing on the Kubota rtv-x1140. What is the best way to raise the machine for skid plate removal, etc?  I would like it to be parallel with the ground after elevated. It is difficult for me doing that lying under it on the ground.  I’m not certain where safe lift points are. Can I use a residential 2 post car lift?, or is a “drive on” platform the only option?

      Hopefully someone out there is a T-Boss 410 electrics expert or a Massimo mechanic is viewing this. I parked my 410 and it was working great. I came back a week later and attempted to crank it and nothing. Turned the key and no power. Figured it was a bad/low battery so I charged it. Still nothing. Attempted to jump start it and still nothing. Usually when I put the key in and turn it to the first position, the display comes on and I hear the ECU and other items boot. Now it is doing nothing. 
      I slowly went through the electrical system and found the main fuse attached to the starter relay, part 71602 (pic 1) blown. I figured replacing this fuse would fix my problem. It didn't. I then ordered a new starter relay thinking maybe that part had gone bad and caused the fuse to blow, but a new relay did not fix the problem. 
      I have found a work around for starting the machine. If I take one of the purple/black leads (pic 2) and insert one of them in the bottom right of the starter relay (pic 1 and 3) then the machine will get power even with the key in the off position.  I'm bypassing something but don't know what. I can use my right hand to hold the wire against the lower right of the starter relay, reach over and hold the brake with my foot, then take my left hand and turn the key and it will crank. As soon as I remove the wire from the relay the machine shuts down. I have even removed the power distributor box and it will still get power when I touch the wire to the relay. Of course this is not the way it should work but if I can't solve this problem somehow I may just have to rig a connector to the relay and bypass whatever is causing the electrical issue. Massimo has told me the purple/black wires on my model are not used.
      Any help in figuring what my problem may be or other items I can try?

      I bought a 2021 Coleman 400 UTV from Tractor supply mainly because of the $2000 off black Friday sale ($6999). I wanted something to do some light hauling around the boat shop and figured this would be a better choice than a golf cart. Initial review is that for the money,it's got to be the best deal going. Fully equipped right out of the box with a lot of nice features. First off,everything worked,that's a good thing. First thing I noticed is that this thing is LOUD,so loud that I use foam ear plugs to run it. The rear axle is locked,like most 4 wheelers,so the tires scrub on tight turns and will tear up the lawn. I found some loose bolts and did a general inspection of everything and tightened up the loose ones as I found them. It's cold here in SE Michigan and I want to do some recreational use during the winter. I bought a 3 Star door and rear window soft enclosure and installed it. Top quality materials and fit great. I added some foam to close off all the gaps and it really does the job. Next I added a Ice Crusher heater kit that uses the coolant to provide heat in the cab. Quality parts and the kit was pretty much complete,I also added a coolant shutoff valve so I can direct all the coolant through the heater instead of the radiator,or blend it as I wish. The heater has a 3 speed fan and 2 directional outlets for this model and with the enclosure will warm it up to shirt sleeve temps at speed with the outside temps in the low 30's. I also added a Kolpin Stealth 2 auxiliary silencer, the exhaust note is definitely quieter and less raspy, but this rig is still noisy enough at speed that you need ear muffs or plugs. I changed out the headlight bulbs to LED's which are a big improvement from the halogens. I figured out a trailer hitch adapter for the oddball thing Colman provides. Now it's just run it in and break it in. For a 400, it is actually quicker and faster than I expected,the specs say 38, but it's closer to 50. Brakes are powerful and smooth. The solid rear axle makes this thing pretty capable,but you also have the push button 4 wheel drive and a push button front diff locker if you need it. All in, it's set up just the way I wanted it for under $8000.
