Default Tire Size ... Which size is better?

What is the biggest size tire that you can put on an 05 Grizzly on stock rims and the tires not rub or nothing without putting a lift on it. I was wondering if 26" or 27" was better. I heard that 27" tires rub on the front and 26" tires don't. One guy told me that if you have a skinnier tire than 10" wide that it wont rub and if you had a tire that was 10" wide or more that it would rub if they was 27" tall. But I have 25" ITP Mud Lites on it right now and I have got plenty of room between my tires and my fenders. So I was just gonna ask you guys what you thought about it.

Iowa, was it the extra width up front that caused the interference? How did you fix it?

27x9x12 up front is the way to go....i agree, dont think i would go with 12 wides up front....but just my opinion. but definitely go with the 27s...you wont be happy with the 26s since you wont see enough change in it.
