Default Does this wheel fit?

     

Hey guys my buddy and I want to go to the dunes for the first time this year and make it a couple times a year. His dad just lifted his 91 suburban 8 inches and has 35's on it so they want to go to the silver lake sand dunes every once in a while. Anyway I've got a 06 rm 125 and I know its probably not ideal for the dunes. I dont have cash to make a switch to a 250. I know a 6 paddle tire and lower gearing will be best, and to also run a bit rich so she don't blow too easy. maybe a prefilter and grease around any not so sealing areas that go to the carb to keep sand out. I want to buy a new wheel and have the paddle on that so I dont have to switch the tires when I wanna go. Would a 99 wheel fit my 06? What years will fit?

Haha I figure if i dont have a very good start ill be using the clutch to get the tire spinning again. Is it better on the engine to just use a usual tire than a paddle?

That 125 is going to struggle in the dunes.

I realize this but it's only for once a year maybe. I saw plenty of 125's their when I went last time. They were definitely having fun thats all i know! I just want to know what year wheels will work guys. As long as I run a 6 paddle and gear down I don't think I will do too bad. Some guys didn't even have paddle tires......

While I dont have an exact answer I can suggest looking at the part numbers for the varies parts ( hub, bearings, axle, brake components etc ) if the years match with their part number you should be fine
