UTVs (Ultimate Terrain Vehicles) are some of the most versatile and best machines for off-roading. If you made it here chances are you wanted to see how your RZR, Maverick X3, or something in between might look on Method Race Wheels. If you’re looking for a little inspiration for UTV wheels, you’ve made it to the right place. In no particular order, here are the current top five UTV builds we’ve featured.
For the King of the Hammers, Branden Sims brought his brand new Polaris RZR Turbo R equipped with the Method 412 Forged Beadlock featuring Bead Grip® inner lip. Racing in the rocks at the Hammers requires specialized equipment to survive the brutal obstacles strewn throughout the Johnson Valley race course. The 412 is the ultimate UTV race wheel for un-comparable performance. Lightweight construction and superior strength allow you to get the most out of your UTV in demanding desert environments.
While at first glance this build may look like a Ford Raptor, it’s really a truck body on a Can-Am Maverick X3. FIA Cross-Country Rally World Champion AJ Jones enlisted the help of off-road parts manufacturer Knine Racing to bring some creature comforts to the X3 that are lacking in the UTV world, making off season use a lot more tolerable. AJ's wheel of choice, our 405 Beadlocks, provide unmatched strength and durability and have an ultra strong 1600 lbs load rating.
