I have stock tires on my Grizz. I'm looking to buy new ones along with a set of mag wheels in the spring. My question is this. Will a mag wheel acccommodate differant size tires?

Is a taller tire benificial?

Can I leave the cluth alone if I increase the tire size?

I'd really appreciate some comment. Thanks!

Orange Whip,

You will find most Grizzly owners go with a 26" tire size. Most places that sell the tires will also sell the proper size rim to fit your machine. Also the issue of total weight for the tire & rim should be taken into consideration. If you go with a real heavy tire, a clutch kit would be needed to get the proper shifting back, (example) 26"rear 589 = 33 lbs each, 26"rear Mudlite = 25.9 lbs each, 28"rear Highlifter Outlaws = 38.7 lbs each, and 28" rear Super Swamper Vampires = 40 lbs each. So the taller/bigger tire does indeed weigh considerably more then the stock size 25" recomended. You would be safe going with a 26" Mudlite or any other 26" tire in that same weight catagory without having to do any clutch mod. I ran 26" 589's on my Kodiak for three years without any clutch mod and never had any problems. I run 26" Mudlites on my Grizzly now with a Dalton clutch kit and the only difference is a better low end response. Could I have just ran the Mudlites without the clutch kit? You bet... The Grizzly has more then enough "balls" to power the tires. You wont gain much ground clearance with a 26" tire size, even tho its 1" taller divide that by two(1/2 circumfrence) and you only get 1/2" total height gain. There are many great tires available today and the choice is difficult, I guess it all depends on your own personal preference.

Hey Orange! You go with that look and you'de be "Pimpin"!!! I have to admit myself, that when my Grizzly is all cleaned up and the T-5's are all shiney, I too like the look! I also am amazed that after 400+ miles on them they still look almost brand new, and I ride pretty hard. A few scratches and scuffs here and there but nothing as drastic as what I anticipated. I know I am happy with the T-5's and Mudlites so far...

Hey Guys i just got my new C-4's with mudlites. I didn't know how 26's or bigger would affect my grizz and i love SPEED so I stayed with the stock size. Not the best pic but put em on at night so had to take a pic. I wanted somethin different so I went with Black Wheels. I can't wait to ride it, but hunting season just started and I don't feel like getting shot so i will wait til this week to ride. Keep on Ridin'
