So I am going to be replacing my stock 50 mile Carnivores. It might be easier to just order a set of built wheels and tires as some other folks on here have done. Or, I might just order some tires and have them mounted on my stock wheels @ $50 a pop. Not sure yet which direction I'll go, but if I were to end up selling the stock wheel and tire assemblies as spares, what are they worth? I realize Kawi wants ~$418 for one. Mine have the green rings.

Depends on how fast you want to move them. $418 + 20% off and free shipping this weekend from Kawasaki, equals $334.40 for a brand new one. So with 50 miles on them, $275 each would be fair. And try to sell them locally, because shipping would be brutal cost wise.

Now, to go a different route. Why not keep the factory wheels (because they are good rims) and just get some new shoes for them. Pick up a cheap rim to mount one of the old tires onto, and now you have a spare.

I would keep the stock wheels unless you want a different look or offset. Most aftermarket wheels out there will make you wider so something to consider.

One thing to consider is hub centric vs lug centric. OEM is hub and aftermarket is lug so that may/may not matter to you. I much prefer the hub centric.

Ahhh. I didn't think about that. I can't have the machine any wider than it is due to storage considerations. Thanks.

Just my speculation but I would imagine that a 5/2 offset wouldn't be any wider than stock. A 4/3 might be a tad wider but I haven't measured anything for sure.

Aftermarket wheels always seem to be a bit wider than OEM, even with the same offset. My Tusk wheels have a 5+2 offset, but I'm close to 70" wide now. Ran into the same when I put new wheels on my 850. Stuck with the 6+1 offset and still gained nearly 2" in width. Don't know why but it just seems to work out that way.

With the bead locks, you can mount your new tires yourself. Nothing tough about it, it just take a little time and a torque wrench. The $200 you save will pay for one of the new tires. Or, you could do what I did and buy new wheels and tires and just keep the OEM's mounted up and taking up space in the basement... 🤣

Yeah, I can't have the machine even 1 inch wider, due to the door width on my storage shed. So, stock wheels with new tires it is.

If you are within reasonable driving distance of me and decide to sell them I would give you $275 for one of them.
I’m with this guy as I too need a spare. I’d actually buy just the wheel if that’s an option. I hate the carnivores.

Where can I find this sale. I can't find it anywhere.

It was a Black Friday (weekend) sale. Kawasaki sent out an email with the info.

You can find all the deals that were going on HERE.
