27" or 28" Tires? With 2" Spacers - Need Pics

OK so in the future will be getting new tires for the XTZ. I will be using 2" spacers although I dont have those yet.

Just bought new tires for my wifes car and my truck, so this will be in a couple months but. I want a tire that is good for all around use. I do a little mud but moslty trail riding. I occasionally ride on pavement to the corner store (live out in country) so I want a radial tire, all terrain. Was thinking BigHorn 2.0 but they dont have 27 or 28" sizes. I want a little taller tire without having to lift. I also dont want something real overly heavy.

Anyways any opinions on 27 or 28" tires to get and furthermore does anyone have any pics with this size AND wheel spacers? Thanks

No wheel spacers but do have 27" Grim Reapers. Highly recommend them they are 8 ply radial and have been holding up great on all types of terrain, blacktop included.

Cool man, those looks awesome. I was actually on your profile earlier looking for your pics TripleJ lol. You didnt have any. They dont look too much taller. Maybe i should get 28's. I want them to look a lil beffier.

Yes, they don't look massive but it's only an inch bigger than stock. 28's would be meatier for sure.

If a guy could run 12 inch rims 26's would look beefy though.

I've got 28" swamplites and love them. Not too heavy at all. Very good in mud, rocks, trails etc. Very smooth on hard pack as well. Very good all around tire in my opinion. I've also got 2" spacers on mine as well. I'll take a picture of my ride today and try to figure out how to put it on here. Looks mean with the spacers. One of my favorite upgrades.

You can get the 27" big horn if you order them as a 2011 oem replacement.
