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 :)

Thanks for the info so far
I will def fill out the personal info now that I'm stationary for a while
I hate to say it but I got excited and was planning before I even measured, I see now that 28 is about the largest. Heck I didn't even notice the fronts are different that the rears( rookie)
So that part is coming together now and I think I may search out a little lift, not sure yet tho. Just got it last Friday so maybe I should just beat around a bit and see what's up.
Thanks again.

Iam not sure,he was on here the other day,he said there made out something different than the factory ones.I think shane/outwest has them.
I don't have them yet, but I want them. Just another thing on my list. I have his resettable fuses. Just not the bushings yet.
