Can anyone educate me on Kingpin wheels? I have a 2004 base model with cast aluminum wheels. It is the 18x5" with three dual spokes. I am searching for a spare wheel.

My 2004 appears to be very close to this photo of a 2007 Kingpin wheel from Ebay, except that it may have studs instead of bolts. (Which, by the way, I heartily approve of.)

But, the part numbers (which are for wheel assemblies) are not the same.
1520632 for the 2004 and 2005 Kingpin and Vegas models.
1520820-409 for the 2006-2007 Kingpin, Vegas (and 8 ball, though I assume those would be black?)

Does anyone know which years the wheels themselves will work on?

It looks as if searching the service manuals may be the only option for me.

My 2004, and the 2005 had 5" wide wheels. The Vegas for those years seems to have used the same.
the 2003 had 4.5" wide wheels.
The Vegas after 2007 seems to use 5.5" wide wheels.

Still have no answer about the stud vs bolt issue. But the tire machine I use will mandate pulling the belt sprocket and the bolts/studs.

To me this means I will have to put inserts in the wheels; aluminum threads at fairly high torque do not last too many cycles.

I'm not sure which year they changed belt systems. I'm thinking 08 but could be wrong on that. From. what I have read, they should interchange. IIRC, the bolt pattern is the same, but the bolt size may be different? Kevinx or Rylan can tell you for sure.
