Tire size on a 900 trail ?

Hi all , anyone know if there is a limit on how big of a tire i can run on my 900 trial ? I know going bigger will change the gear ratio , but it has tons of power (for me ) so if i loose some low end that will be ok . Im seeing a bunch of take offs for sale at pretty good prices but all are bigger than my stock size ( 26x8x12 , 26x10x12)
Any and all answers welcome , THANKS !

and if you have some or know of a deal for some , let me know , in socal ..

Tire size on a 900 trail ?

I have 28" Terrabites on aftermarket wheels which are offset slightly more than stock maybe an inch or two than stock. The front tires will barely rub the back of the fender at the seam only on a harsh bump. Other than that no problems.

I have 27x9x14 STI Black Diamond XTR's on 7x14 STI HD5 Beadlocks on all 4 corners with no issues (5+2 Offset). One thing of note though, even though they're 27", it's more like 26.5, and that half inch might make a difference.

Re: Tire size on a 900 trail ?

I stopped by my dealer the other day and they had a 2016 Trail that I was looking at. The machine looked lifted and I inquired about it. They stated that there was no lift and all they did was put 27" or 28" tires on it. I'll have to look again to be sure. I asked about rubbing and they stated that there were no issues at all; however, I question spacing under full compression. I'll stop by today if I get time and snap a photo of the machine with the tire size.

Just wondering what your width ended up at front and rear with the 5+2 off set and 9" wide tire

Thanks

I am running Kenda Bear Claw HTR's 27x9x12. Stock suspension and wheels on my 900 Trail. With 10 lbs air pressure they measure 27" tall, no rubbing and plenty of clearance. Great traction and smooth riding radial tires.

I had 27" Swamplites that measure and actual 27" tall. After I ditched the front swaybar, I would get rubbing when the wheels were half turned and at full compression. That was on stock wheels. With the front sway bar, I never noticed any rubbing.

I love them so far. We are doing a ride in the mountains tomorrow through Sunday and I will add a better review here but they are great so far.

They're 9" tires, but on 7" wheels. The width difference is negligible. 50.75" ish?

Thanks for the info jagori, so basically pretty close to the original 50" width. I'm looking for a good wheel and tire combo I can put on my XC to bring it down to use on 50" trails, I realize still need to do something with the doors and fender flairs. We're hoping to do a trip to the Paiute trail system and want to be able to access the 50" trails

Re: Tire size on a 900 trail ?

I advise anyone looking to put on bigger tires to not only look at the size but also the weight. 27s generally work fine on a trail model but many of the after market tires are very heavy compared to stock ( 10 Lbs each on some). You will notice a loss of power with a very heavy tire. I also run the Bear Claw HTRs and they are about the same weight as stockers.

Bruce , we spent 4 weeks at the paiute trail last summer (2 trips) there isnt too many 50 in trails , someone we talked to said they were changing them all to 60 in. But dont count on this .
Its a great place to ride , very utv friendly , lots of rv parks , you can do so many different types of rides , 20 - 100 mile trips, love it there !
