Hey everyone, just wanted to say hi and ask a few questions. I just purchased a new 2012 trooper as my deployment gift. I havent been able to ride it yet as I'm still deployed. LOL But I was wondering if a 15x7 wheel with 4.5 back spacing will work? I tried searching but couldnt find the answer. Also does anyone know if the differentials need to be upgraded on a 2012 model?

The wheels should work fine. If your planing on redrilling for the bolt spacing, be sure the wheels have a flat center. Can't tell you about the differential. Nobody has reported yet. If it does and you don't, you can destroy the diff. I would remove it and it and pull the cover off it and see if the ring and pinion gear line up. Also see if there is more then a few thousands play in the gear meshing including the spider gears. Also look for surplus end play. The bolts holding the ring gear on should be grade 12.9 and be securred on with red Loc-tite or simular along with a secondary way of keeping the bolts from loosening like metal clips or locknuts.

Thanks for the replies guys! I wont need to redrill I am getting the wheels from superatv and they are 15x7 and 115mm so the should work. I will pull the diff and check it when I get home from deployment. Oh and I updated my profile. Thanks again cant wait to ride this machine. So far Ive only gotten to see pics of my dad showing off on it LOL
