I picked up some 26x11-R12 rear tires for my 450 max and would like to put them on 12x9 steel wheels.
Problem is most sources only have 12x7 steel wheels with the 4/137 bolt pattern. Does anyone know where I can get wider wheels for the rear of the Outlander? Stock size is 12x7.5
The wheels for the 26x9-R12 front tires are covered so its only the rear wheel size that has been hard to find.

go up to a 14" rim and tire combo then you can use factory takeoffs for a 650 and up or steel wheels. Bigger rim size is easier to find..

I already have the 12'' tires, If they make tires that size ie. 26x11-R12 then someone must be making rims for them no?

I upgraded my 2016 Can-Am Outlander MAX 650 DPS with 4 each 12x7 MSA M23 battle wheels and 4 each Maxxis original Bighorn 26x9R12 tires.

My stock tires were front 26x8-12 and rear 26x10-12, going to 26x9-12 made sense.

I didn't want to deal with different tires front and back, plus I wanted the ability to rotate into any position.

The Maxxis original Bighorn tires are non-directional, so rotation is simple if need.

The aftermarket wheel offset made them stick out further thanstock, so I installed Direction 2 3 inch fender flares.

Yooper, thanks for the info. Might I ask how wide the OEM rear wheels are?
My OEM wheels are 12x7.5 for 25x10-12 tires.

pretty sure your rims are either 7 or 8' wide im pretty sure no one makes a half size in a rim. Since your in Canada check out revco.ca if they do not have the rim you want its probably not out their. You can put those tires on your existing rims no problem..

I should have done this too.
Front OEM wheels 12x6
Front OEM tire 26x8-12

Rear OEM wheel 12x7.5
Rear OEM tire 26x10-12

I went with:

Front/Rear MSA M23 wheels 12x7
Front/Rear Maxxis original Bighorn tires 26x9-12
