Maximum Tire size on a 2011 standard.

Looking for some advice on gaining more clearance without installing a lift kit, and bigger tires seems like a logical way to go. I would like to know how big I can go with the stock 12" rim, I've been told I should be able to go with 26 or even 27, (stock tires are 25X10X12 rear, 25X8X12 front). If I go with 27 will I have rubbing issues, and will I need wheel spacers?

Re: Maximum Tire size on a 2011 standard.

Keep one thing in mind... you may physically be able to put a set of 27’s on a rzr but the extra height will cut your gear ratio down effectively making the rzr sluggish IMO.

I put a set of 26’s on and IMO they were the perfect size because I always thought the 25’s looked too small (I have a 2” liftkit)

When I replace these tires, I’m going back to the 26’s.

25’s

You will need wheel spacers because of the rear motor mount. I have 26 " bighorns which measure big and I had some rubbing on front fenders.

I recently got the forward a-arms from superatv and it'll take at least a 28" now and wouldn't rub.

As mark said you'll lose power which can be helped with a clutch kit.

Sorry, forgot to mention that... my wheels are aftermarket and the offset is different so the rear motor mount wasnt an issue for me (by less than a 1/4 ...lol)

I also bought the Holz clutch kit (WHICH I STRONGLY RECOMMEND) so it all works out...

Let us know what you do.

25s




I think I would go with the 26 tires, what lift did you put on, and with the
26's and lift how much do you think you gained in clearance from stock. I am thinking of the racertech lift, did a lot of reascearch and from what i gather it's probably one of the few that won't cause cv joint problems.

Thanks for the reply.

Your right on the money with your choice. 26" with racertech lift and holz clutch kit. You'll be happy with the height and the performance.

I went with the racertech lift, it gave me approx 3 of lift. Unfortunately, I installed a cage which weighs a bit more than stock and I changed over to Elka shocks. (I dont have them turned up)

Right now with the cage and soft shocks, Im probably not even 2 over stock. (I plan on cranking up the shocks soon)

I would go with the 26s again....
