If your going to cruise the roads and just look good, 14" rims are fine. If you want something functional that won't leave you stranded, get 12" rims.

I've been debating the same thing. But I want to run bfgoodrich tires on mine so the only size I can fine are 14" has anybody ran this set up? Hopefully I can find something at the sand sport show next weekend.

Been running 14" and Big Horns for 2400 miles and so far no flats no problems I think I'll stay with what I've got my 2 pennys

14" came on mine. Definitely more susceptible to pinching (snake bite) from experience. I found running 14 lbs in tires helps to minimize. Granted may give up a little on traction, but livable.

i have 14" big horns on my standard,
the guys are right about pinching,
i,ve never had a problem with that set up,
but i,m aware of where i position my ride going over rocks not to get pinched,

I use 15 inch wheels and truck tires and run 9 lbs air pressure. DOT approved and very dependable. the 14's have a limited amt. of tire choices and the 12 's are way too expansive. Try a 15 and you will never go back...
Good luck mand good riding!

Had 2 different pinches on the last ride with 14"s. Got to keep them with at least 12-14psi but then u just spinning and have no traction. 12"s are my next purchase.

This is a loaded question but one I know you had to ask to get a good feel of what the folks think.

I run the 14's just because I feel they look better on the SXS's. The bigger wheel gives it some balls. Are they better... probably not, but they look nice and I personally have never had an issue. I'm currently on my 4th RZR and they all have had 14" wheels on them.

If it were an ATV then I'd say 12's for sure, but we are talking UTV's and for me its the 14's

Ditto, I've tried both and the machine handles SOoooooo much better and more stable feeling with 14", plus looks so much better and now I'm not getting pinched sidewalls.... which makes me wonder why people think 12" give you less pinced sidewalls, I had many more pinches and flats with 12" wheels. In fact I haven't had ANY with 14" wheels.

I run about 8 psi in mine so I don't think tire pressure is the answer must be the terrain or the operator some try more pressure but pretty much have the same results "just my thoughts"
