Default Will 650 Rincon wheels fit 06 500FM?

Hello all,
As per title really, I've bought some used alloys off a 650 Rincon via eBay [I haven't received them yet] and now I'm just wondering if they'll fit my 06 500FM Foreman. I guess I may need some different wheel nuts?
Any advice would be gratefully received,

Thanks.

i had rincon wheels on on my foreman 450 (same setup as the foreman 500) for a few months and thay worked great but ......you are going to need 2 1/2in wheel spacers for the back wheels to fit right (see pics )

Yep, the offset is different from a SRA machine to an IRS machine.

Thanks guys, am I reading this correctly, I need 2, ( 1 pair ) of wheel spacers each measuring two and a half inches thick? That seems quite a big offset difference, does it put an increase of stress on the bearings, and where do you get them from?

Thanks again for all your replies.

i got them from a member of the forum but he got them from highlifter.com .the reason that it seams like a big wheel spacer is because it is ! the wheels that you want to use are made for a IRS wheeler (independent rear suspention) and your foreman is a SRA (straight rear axle ) i never had a problem with the bearings from them . but the wheels you want will never work unless you use the spacers
this picture is what it looks like with the spacers . if no spacers the wheels will sit 2 1/2in in further hitting the exhaust

You can just run the rear wheels backwards. They will work fine without spaces. I've have them on my 350 for about 2 1/2 years now. I run 1" spacers all around but it doesn't need them.

This is an old pic, no spacers.

you can run them backwards. however, i would highly recommend that you didn't. they're designed for the acorn nut to sit in the bevel and with them turned around it wont work the same. just my opinion.

IMO 2 1/2 years and about 3000kms of solid abuse says otherwise. Something tells me the opposite side of the rim also is shaped for the tapered nut, but like I said, it's been 2 and a half years since I last looked. I have yet to even have to tighten them.
