F & R tire size matching?
I am ready to buy new ITP Bajacross tires. I have the option of buying narrower tires for the front and wider tires for the rear or all 4 being the same size. My new rims are all four 7x14 size (my OEM rims were 7x14 front and 8x14 rear).
On my Jeep, I run all the same size tires. UTV tires are a new horizon for me. I understand that the narrower tires will make steering effort a bit less and maybe wander a bit less, but I am looking at 26x10x14 & 26x11x14. I can put the 26x10x14s on the front and the 26x11x14s on the rear or all 4 the same. Reading and researching the narrower tires in front & wider tires on the rear seems to be the norm for UTVs. That said, I am inclined to go with all 4 tires being the same size (either size will work for me I believe).
What are the pros & cons I am not seeing here? Suggestions & recommendations will be welcomed.
