I called the Yamaha Dealer where i got mine, and they wanted alot more $$$. I got mine through Rocky Mountain ATV. I really liked the Ride of the BH 2.0, that is why stayed with them. But i did look at the price of the HD2's and Roctane XD, it was like 893 and some change shipped for the tires/wheels and lug nuts. Not sure how much your dealer is charging you. Be sure to post up some pics!!

Thanks, appreciate it.

I choose the BH 2.0s becuase i relally liked the ride of the stockers, and the weight diffrence is very little over stock. I have not noticed any major loss in pwer at all with this setup, you can step on the gas, and it has no problem going, im very happy with my setup, and also NO RUBBING.

How much wider did it make it ? I tried 28x10-14 Roctanes on STI HD Beadlocks and it was six inches wider in the front (64 1/2)....Way to wide for riding up here in Maine. Very disappointed because it looked incredible. Did you use spacers on the rear?, also my center caps were about one inch to short to clear the hub/axle.

Well the HD2 wheels have the same Offset as the stockers i think, so they barely stic out at all,
No Spacers
I had no problems with the center caps, but a member over on Vikingforum.org, where im a Moderator, Ordered the same setup as me, but got the black HD2's for his Camo Viking, and he got the black Center Caps, and they wouldnt work either. He's using some center caps off another brand of wheel i think, till STI makes one for the Viking. Like i said though, i didnt have any issues when i put them on.

The other member's dealer let him have the other caps, and he had been in Contact with STI, and they are supposed to let him know when the new Caps are out.

I installed the 14" STI H2 with caps, and no probs. But I did have to call rockymtn atv for 4 sets of lug nuts, since it is impossible to use the original nuts. The 16 lug nuts cost $19.
PICS PICS PICS, Lets see the PICS!!!!!

Yeah, you always got to order lug nuts with aftermarket wheels, stockers dont work.

Once I get the final seat covers and the windshield, I will post the pics. By the way, the spray bedliner is the way to go. It was not difficult. I am 62 and the hardest part was finding the motivation to sand new paint on a new toy. Another improvement was going to the automotive store and getting plastic caps to fill the holes where the bedrail attaches. Makes it look much cleaner.

Look foward to seeing the pics.

Far as the Bed goes, i actually took it last week and got it sprayed, and it turned out great. Great idea on the caps to fill the holes on top of the bed, i may do that sometime aswell.
