Danny,

Looking good!


CG,

I'm not sure about his tires, but when I had 26" MST's I noticed a big difference with my low end. Once the engine revved up you could get the power back. I couldn't talk myself inot a clutch kit either. So thats why I went back down to 25's. It was like night and day.

I wanted to stay with 25s also but all they had were 26s in stock, but when comparing them on the Carlisle site the overall dia. is not much bigger I think it was like .7 inches on the front tire which only equates to a little over a 1/3 of an inch that you actually have for a ratio difference between the 2 on the rear tire it was even less, and being radial versus bias I figgured the squat would make up the difference, but what the **** do I know. I know my speedo is closer to my gps now than before, so it did raise my overall gear ratio some. If I had the choice and both tires were available I would stick with the 25s also as I really dont need extra clearance. I know the 25 rear was rated with a higher carring capacity than the 26 according to the Carlisle tire site. They are, with the extra shoulder blocks, wider than stock as on my ride yesterday I was getting mud up on the fenders etc. where I hadn't before, a set of fender extenders would take care of that. I'll post front pictures later right now I'm off for another ride and some bird hunting. Danny

Good news for me too. I thought I had a second flat with my ATR's but it was just some debris and after getting that out I was good to go. I'm stickin with the ATR's for now. I'll really give them a work in another two weeks.
