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.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 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 itHave 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.
What was the reson for the dif.? Was it more of a tuned sportier ride? These mods can be frustrating but u will prevailthe 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
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.
i can't argue with how she'll react on the trail, i'm just saying they fit with nearly 2" of clearance to firewall and two grown men jumping on front bumper and a couple of ditch crossings. they turn full crank both ways. I had suspension on softest and only advanced them 1 setting. I cant wait to hit the trail and figure everything out but im currently in shop dealing with other issues. I can assure you my good man if your looking for a trailer queen your looking in the wrong drive wayNo way can you fit 30" and not rub!
I ran 28" xtr mudlites and rub on my 2008 650xt.
Just sitting there or driving on the road there is clearance but when off angle and turning suspension compressed rubbed stock bumper and mangled the parking brake clamp!
30" tires will not rub on a trailer queen.
28" tires will rub on a 08 650xt that's all there is to it.
Good day to you sir................ I said good day
Nice work on the cut out, looks factory. Did it solve your clearance issues?After adding the OLRs and doing the fender cutout
Pics of fender cutout:
Had to cut out the false bottom and after that cut part of the lip of the floorbaord to allow the bottom floorboard to push through the cutout to finish trimming.
used 3M adhesive to reattach the lip on floorboard. Came out better than expected
reattached the fender, used same holes in the fender just made new ones in the metal. Made flush to still look stock.
Propping up the floorboard to make sure it has a good seal
