Looking to get new tires and was wondering what is the max size tire you can put on a stock susp. before a lift kit is needed?
Also is there any upside or down side to getting new wheels and having the same size tire all the way around your machine? say the stock rear tire on my 16 HDX is a 26X11X14 can i get new wheels and have that size front and rear?
Thanks
Tony

Sure, you can run the same size all the way around. Cheapest way would be to buy a pair of used rear rims and put your tires on them. I run 28X12x14's on 14x8 Visions. My offset is 4+4. The tires actually are 30" tall. I bought a set of 30's and they were 32" tall. Some tires are close in size, most aren't. My 27's on my RZR measure out at 25.5. I had to add 4" of lift to the front and 2" to the rear. Adapted XTZ shocks to fit on the front, and welded up a bracket lift on the back. Had to trim some plastic from the outside front corners of the floor pan, too. I run 2" spacers on the rear to match the front wheel stance. Expecthttps://www.prowlertalk.net/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=48049&thumb=1 much harder steering and you'll need to re-clutch and may as well do a new belt. Got a pic of the tire size difference, enclosed.

welcome to the house Tony

tire size is very subjective IMHO .. I run stock size and used after market springs to get back to factory advertised lift as they almost always do not have the lift they say or the springs sag quickly even before delivery LOL

the mud riders like very tall tires , woods and mountain riders might go one size larger [again some guys more] but the side hill stability lessons with height as the utility units are a bit tippy v/s the sport units

fill in you signature ones so we know what you have [later on when you don't reference that info] saves asking questions before answering .. same with location info so we have an idea what type riding you might do.
