Default Bigger tires

I have a 2009 grizzly 700. I want to replace stock tires with bigger more agressive tires and keep old rims. What kind of tire can I upgrade to using my stock rims?

Welcome to the party!

You can strap any of the 12" tires into your factory rims... What sizes are you looking at? If you get into something in a 27" size, you might also want to be looking at a clutch kit...

i think you can go up to 28"s without any rubbing issues.

do you have a particular style of tire in mind? Mud, All-Terrain orsomething in between?

They gotcha covered, I like ITP Mudlites,they are fairly lightweight and good in alomst any terrain,might be a good choice to pair with the heavier stock rims.

I broke down and bought Mud Lite 26-10-12's and 26-12-12's today for $370. Decided that the 27's would need clutch kit and heard they could be hard on CV joints etc. These 26's are all I need. They look great compared to my stock Dunlop 25 in tires. Thanks for all the help guys.

The only good thing about the stock chicken skins is that they keep the wheels from getting scratched on the showroom floor...

Hiya Blue! Is the weather in Ohio getting any better????

It's been tough finding a hole in this weather big enough to ride a motorcycle... Have you added a snorkle and swim fins to your Grizzly riding geat list yet?

I tried out new tires. The guy who put them on said there should be 7psi per tire. Boy was he wrong; it road load a steel wheeled wagon. Took out a couple of pounds from each tire and wow.
