Paint rubbed off.
Black paint on rims wore right off after one ride in the mud and wooded terrain. KMC would not make it right after photos were sent in to Rocky Mountain. I will never purchase another KMC wheel again.

KMC Machete Beadlocks
Spent several days researching tire/wheel combinations before purchasing these KMC wheels and Terrabite Radials for my YXZ1000. Fit is perfect and they look great. Several rides in to date including Moab & multiple Rubicon trips, and they are holding up well except for a little (expected) rock rash on the bead lock rings. I especially like the fact the valve stems are recessed/protected from damage by rocks & debris while on the trail. Great customer service and crazy fast delivery. Been purchasing parts and gear from RMATV/MC for years - always with the same excellent results.

Weight of 14x7 please?
A shopper on May 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These wheels weight approximately 19 pounds each.
I live in Belize and my YXZ is licensed for the highway (you gotta love Belize) so I think it might be better if I upgrade to 16x7 bead lock wheels and then I can put a 4 ply light truck tire on them which I can purchase here. I think I may end up with a lighter tire/wheel combo which will be better for me. My YXZ already gets great fuel mileage and with a 31 inch tall tire it will be even better. I mostly only drive on hard packed rocky roads and pavement.
Do you guys carry a light weight 16x7 bead lock wheel?
Thanks
Brad
Brad S on Jul 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We do make 16x7 beadlocks but not in the KMC XD line. You would have to go with a MSA wheel in this case. M37 Brute is 19.9 lbs, M31 Lok2 is 19.5 lbs, and the M21 Lok is 19.5 lbs. However, we need to check the year of your YXZ, 2018 and older have a different bolt pattern than 2019 and newer. Availability will depend on this.
What is the weight rating of this wheel?
Dave W on Apr 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Machete is rated at 1250 lbs
Weight of per rim..14×7 ??
Cory L on Jan 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: These are 15.6 lbs each
Trying to determine the exact offset of these wheel in 14x7.
The KMC website shows two different offsets and backspacing.
You indicate the 5+2, but KMC doesn't show that offset. It's more like 5.4+1.6?
Geoff B on Sep 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Geoff, you are correct. The true specs on the +35mm wheel would make it a 5.4+1.6.
I have the xs228 wheel. Which lug nuts do I need to work on my 2018 can-am mav x3 xrs max?
William P on Oct 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You'll need a 12x1.5 spline drive type lug for those wheels and that machine.
You can find them here
https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/1612/42170/Motosport-Alloys-Spline-Drive-Tapered-Lug-Nut?v=15334

Can you use stock lug nuts with these rims?
Shawn D on May 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You would need to purchase after market lug nuts to fit these wheels. The stock lug nuts will not work.
Wheel size? What is the +2.0 at the end of wheel size? Off sets
A shopper on Jan 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That indicates the offset of the wheel. One option for a wheel size is a 5.0 + 2.0.
