Will 14x7 4/137 5+2 Offset Wheels Fit the Defenders?

Will 14x7 4/137 5+2 Offset Wheels Fit the Defenders?

I was looking at a wheel that the specs are listed as 14x7 4/137 bolt pattern and 5+2 offset. I was wondering if the wheels would fit the Defenders with no clearance issues front and back? The website I was looking at stated they won't fit my machine, but then again it doesn't appear to list that many it would fit. So I'm guessing that isn't accurate. I've tried cross referencing different wheels on different websites with these same specs, and I'm thinking they should work. I'm thinking the one question mark would be the 5+2 offset. Any CanAm experts out there have any input?

I would have thought the defender would have a 5/2 offset wheel on the rear from the factory. What size tires are on the rear ?

The fronts are 27-9x14 and the rears are 27-11x14. I need to find out the width of the stock wheels, and I don't know what the stock offset is.

Even if the wheels in question would fit, how would they fit stance wise in comparison to stock? I just stumbled on this deal on the 5+2 wheels, and it got me considering....

I may have to rip off the wheels and get some measurements, but I just thought maybe somebody already knew this information. If it would fit and give the right stance, I just thought of taking advantage of the price...

I've been doing a lot of researching and digging on different websites than the one with the listed wheel. It lists a lot of wheels with the 5+2 offset for my machine. So I don't see why the listed wheel with those specs wouldn't work on my machine. Thinking on buying the wheels for the price despite their website saying they won't fit....

Your factory rear wheels with 11 wide rubber will be can am standard 5/2.5 if by chance it has 8 it will be 5/3. So yes 5/2 will fit just fine .

According to the service manual it lists the front wheels at 14 x 6.5" or 7" (not certain which it is since it lists one for Max and one for standard cab but I thought they came with same wheels, and not sure of the offset). It lists the rears at 14 x 8.5" (not sure of the offset).

I went straight to different wheel manufacturer websites like ITP, Sedona, and STI, and a majority of the wheels listed for the 4/137 bolt pattern were the 5+2 offset. So it seems to be the norm. So the one website has to be wrong saying they wouldn't fit my machine.....

Does anybody have aftermarket wheels on their Defenders (any pictures)? If so, are they 7" wide? I'm a little concerned about going with a 7" wide wheel and 5+2 offset (when stock rear wheel is 8.5"). My machine is already a little narrower than stock since I installed the 2" lift. So concerned how much narrower it would make it going with the 7" 5+2 wheel....

Same stock tires 27-9x14 front and 27-11x14 rear.

I know I can run wheel spacers, but I was trying to avoid running spacers...
