Tire and Rim swap

I am looking buying a set of Black Aluminum Rims and Tires off a 2015 Viking. Will they fit a 2012 Grizzly 700? Any backspace issues? Lugnut issues? The tires are Bighorn 2.0's - 25's.. Is this worth the hassle for $400-500??

Thanks

I decided to buy the rims and tires for a real good deal. Everything bolted up well.

Those wheels look really nice. Nice setup.

It was really weird that nobody answered your question about them earlier. It probably just got buried in other posts.
If you have a another question later and it seems it has been missed after a day or so, just do a "TTT" or "To the Top". We won't mind.

Looks good.

Are those lug nuts tapered? They look like they might be the "flat" kind, and those wheels look like they might be the kind that need tapered lug nuts.

Looks good. Had anyone answered you, we probably would have warned you about the 2.0's. The only real issue is longevity and it sounds like you did well on the package. I say ride them until they are bald and replace them with OG's.

I have never managed to wear down a set of tires until they are bald. I hope to one day do so.
They always end up full of holes first.

Those are tapered lug nuts that came off the stock rims. I ended up getting the set for less than i originally posted, so i figured I bought a set of rims and the tires are a bonus (kinda). I will run the 2.0's until they fail or are bald. Then i will go to OG's.... Thanks Guys.
