Someone please help! I’ve been searching for 2 days for replacement tires for my 14’ xp1k. The problem is that I don’t want to spend money on aftermarket wheels but I hate the stock Bighorns. They’re not terrible tires, just too aggressive for all the hard pack and on road riding I do.

It seems that my tire choices are extremely limited if I want to keep the stock rims and 9”wide/11”wide configuration, especially if I want to jump up to a 30” tall tire.

Does anyone have any ideas or recommendations?

Go to a 10” wide tire all the way around, you can mount them on your stock wheels
Thanks for the reply but won’t that give me a different circumference front to back mounting the same width tire on different width wheels? Or would the difference be negligible?

Your stock setup has different width of wheels front to back...

Very negligible, nothing that would cause ill effects. It’s done somewhat commonly

Sorry, isn’t that what I said in quoted text?
I thought maybe having the bead of the same size tire at two different widths would change the circumference of the mounted, inflated tire, throwing off the symmetry of the 4wd on hardpack creating undesirable handling characteristics.

sometimes minor changes can have drastic effects. For instance, my rig will pull pretty hard to one side on pavement if one of the back tires is as little as 3-4 psi lower than the other. This effect is amplified under hard acceleration or braking because of what is effectively a spooled(no differential) rear drive

Btw, I’ve always heard about people linking Jeeps that don’t have frames but I’ve never met one. Pleasure to meet your acquaintance. ?

Thanks for the advice. I just pulled the trigger on a set of Carnivores. If it doesn’t feel right, I guess I will be ordering a set of wheels too.

Hah! Built mine with a 3 link up front with a track bar and a double triangulated 4 link in the rear. I actually sold that one specifically probably close to 5 years ago. Im done with building jeeps.

I'm running 30x10 terrabites on the stock wheels. I have been running them for about 900 miles and they are doing great. I think you will be more than happy with the Carnivores on the stock wheels. They will work just fine.
