Need new tires without increased width

Anything I can do for new tires that can get me increased height without changing my overall width? I'm already squeezed tight on 60" gates in stock form. Dirt Commanders are wearing out and I'm going to need to do something eventually.

Re: Need new tires without increased width

Going up in height isn't going to make you get wider, unless you go up in size and in width. 27x10x14 is going to be the same width as 28x10x14, the tires are just going to be an inch taller which will give you 1/2 inch more increased height

Re: Need new tires without increased width

True, but then I will need 14" wheels. Most of the aftermarket wheels seem to have increased offset yes?

Re: Need new tires without increased width

Get some xp take offs. They will make you taller (29" tires) and narrower (5+1 front and 6.5+1.5 rear offsets) and give you a 14" rim. Can usually be found on used for $400-$500. You can use wheels spacers if you have rub issues or want to push them back out to stock width.

Re: Need new tires without increased width

I've been looking for a set of those but after reading the Shock Therapy stuff about offset and scrub radius now I'm a little gun shy. If I interpret his article correctly, it seems that would give me a negative scrub radius which he says in the article is bad...although he doesn't elaborate much since the main point of the article is to discourage people from going wider, not narrower.

Re: Need new tires without increased width

What about 30x10x12 Blackwaters front and rear? Will that work on the stock wheels?

I installed 30x10x12 Blackwaters on 4 stock front wheels on our 1000S. We loved this combination. I never measured the width but I suspect it is around 62” wide based on narrow bridges we crossed. I have run this combination down to 6 psi for some crawling situations. Usually ran around 8 psi which really helped take a lot of chop out of the ride.

Re: Need new tires without increased width

Will that tire not work on the stock rear wheel? I know the rear tire stock is 11".

Stock width of mine seems to be 61 to possibly as much as 62, the sidwalls all have to be squished in as I push through a narrow gate.

Re: Need new tires without increased width

It may mount on the wider rim but I wanted to be able to rotate my tires so that they wore evenly.

Re: Need new tires without increased width

Also, the deeper offset of the wider rim doesn’t always fit properly without rubbing issues on the front axle on RZRs.

Re: Need new tires without increased width

I see, well maybe it would look a little wagon wheel-ish on the rear with the 8 inch rim, 10 inch wide tire, and also being 3 inches taller than the stock 27.

Re: Need new tires without increased width

Looks pretty good, thanks. Mine is a 4 seater but a lot more traffic in this forum so I figured I would ask here. Should be same principle I think.

Re: Need new tires without increased width

I don't know were you are located but I have a set of XP take offs that I ran for a year. I used wheel spacers on mine to widen it. I don't have the issue with gates that you have. I ended up buying new rims just so I could take of the spacers. One cap is broke from the place that dismounted my tires but the rims are great shape. I don't know where you are located but I would take like 250 bucks plus shipping for them. They are just sitting in my garage
