Just a Buick intro

Hello all, just dropping a note to say hi , new to the forum and thanks in advance for any help I get.
Just picked up a 12 700 XTX, traded in my wrecked ski-doo( man that was kinda hard pill) but have no regrets yet.
Any hoo got a question about higher mileage tires, the catalog ones are 26 by 9.5 x 14
Would the suspension hold up to some aluminum 15 in rims and a 30 x 9.5 swamper or a 31 10.5 BFG mudder. I found the rims online but not sure of the robustness of the equipment.
Thanks again and I look forward to some good knowledge sharing.

welcome aboard,great members,my thoughts I wouldn't go any taller than 28'' tire.a 30'' will catch the inside of your fender well in the front,not sure what kind of riding you plan on doing.but different mods can be done.let us know what kind of riding your gonna be doing..........mike.

fill in your info on signature line so we know what ya have .. less questions later
also fill in you profile info [or some of it] so we know where ya are .. helps define ride area and terrain

that info give us a clue as to things like ... high desert, trees, rocks, sand or things like fire roads v/s pavement ect


AND welcome to the house , be careful the BS gets a bit deep sometimes

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us
