Lookin at puttin the 27.5x11x14on rear 27.5x9x14 on front of the new hdx going with the rocker ubers just having cat check to see if they'll fit and if power steering can handle it. Cross your fingers can't wait to get some snow.

Be careful with heavy tires.

what concern have they been having with heavy tires my first UTV
Heavy tires are harder on Axles and diffs and take more Horsepower to turn.

Some people may disagree But I have Big horn 2.0s and I am impressed with their performance off road and the sand also their street performance.

Check out the Maxxis Ceros as well. I have them and they are a fairly light 6 ply radial that ride good in most conditions.

I run the Ubers in 26.5 on my XTZ and have no problems with them other than they are spendy $$ .. as to weight they are similar to the original Big Horns and a bit heavier than the BH 2.0's but have a full 8 ply rating v/s a 6 ply on the 2,0's .. IMHO go with your choice as to brand but again MHO stay with the 26.5's [that's only a half inch difference anyway]
i wanted the strength v/s weight as I ride in woods [tree branches poking through] and sharp rock shale

Big heavy tires are not good for anything really. I have had the toughest tires made on my XTZ 1000 and blew the side walls out. I have tested most of the tires on the market and they will all fail given the right situation. Drive somewhat smart and keep proper tire pressures for the given riding conditions and most of the tires available will work for you. Look for the tires that fit your riding style whether it's mud, sand, snow, rocks, hard pack, street, gravel etc..Just tell us what you ride the majority of the time and our feedback may help.

As for the power steering I don't think it's necessary on a Prowler unless you are doing a lot of nasty slow stuff. I just use power to make my car turn better! :D

Already got power steering and going thru woods slow the other night it was quite nice. Mainly what I need them for is snow in the winter to get where the yotes and rabbits are can't afford tracks. Wife uses it with kids prob more than me taking kids around the farm but I can always swap stock tires back on for most of summer. And of course mud and hard packed trails with and slow going with rocks.

Rocker Ubers cause of the sharp rocks on the trails and the stubble in fields when they start growing back.
