Biggest Tire Size??

Im thinking about buying 30" Outlaw Radials for the XTZ. Will these tires fit without rubbing? If they do rub, what is the solution?

I put 30" silverbacks on my 650xt. I think they would have fit without a lift, but i went ahead and installed a 2" lift from Highlifter. Plenty of clearance.

Have you or anyone else on here had any problems with running the 2" lift. I figured just about every machine could handle a 2" without many issues, but someone on highlifter forums was telling me not to and my axles would thank me later. Just ordered the 30" OLRs today so have to run a 2" lift to prevent rubbing.

I will say this. I wanted the extra ground clearance is why i put the lift on. Im pretty sure you can run the 30" without the lift. It does put a little more angle on the axle but it really doesn't look that bad. IMO the prowler is wider than most utv's therfore making the axles longer. A 2" lift on something narrower puts a lot more stress on the cv axles. I hope im right in my theory. I havent had a chance to ride mine b/c i cant get the damn thing running ever since i started trying to rejet it

well got the 30" Outlaw Radials today and they rub very bad. Even with a 2" lift if i turn the wheel more than half way either way they start to rub. so this weekend going to do a little cutting on the fender wells to hopefully fix the problem.

not very familiar with the XTZ but i just put 30" SB on my 08 650 today. No lift and theres a ton of room. There must have been a big dif. between the two.

the xt and xtx have a different suspension setup than the xtz. they have a ton more room than the xtz. plus the SB measure a little smaller than OLRs

What was the reson for the dif.? Was it more of a tuned sportier ride? These mods can be frustrating but u will prevail

yeah they trying to make it sportier and less tippy with the "ride in" suspension. very freaking frustrating that you hear about people with 550s and 700s with tons of clearance and their top of the line prowler cant come close. ive got all the items needed to get the trimming done. going to use belting material to seal the opening up. When i get it done ill post some pics of the hopefully done and nice looking finished product.
