Question Bfgoodrich tires are back, will they work for me

hey guys i noticed that bfg all terrains are making 195/75/14 tires again? are thoes simmilar to 27x8.50x14 and i was concidering putting them on my cat but willl i need new wheels i currently have itp wheels with 26x9x14 terracross in ft and 26x11x14 in rear. i guess the question i have is the rear wheels to wide for the bfg tires? and is the 195 simmilar to a 27'' also will the tires increase my top speed but lower my bottom end torque with the weight difference and less rolling resistance. costco has these tires for 140.00 a piece.

you can have good agressive atv tires for less than that

and you would not have to change your wheels, i am not sure about the weight but it should be considerably heavier compare to atv tires...

I put 27-8.50-14 on my stock rims and they work fine. You might check out big horn light truck tires. I got buck shot mudders for $115 each.

i see a lot of people running them and it seems as though they would last forever, i woud like a taller tire because im in a lot of rocks most of the time. i thought it would be a good choice due to looking at 27'' atv tires they all seem for mudd i will use it in streets also... im open to suggestions
