Hi

I am wanting to put Mud Lites on my 2005 Grizzly. I can't get new rims as prices her in Spain are loco compared to US, cosy approx 1,100$ for rims and tyres. What are the largest Mud Lites I can put on standard rims? Should I put same size on front and back?

All advise appreciated

you can go as large as you want! I used to run 27" 589's on my old rubicon. the only reason I went with rims and tires this time was because I wanted the wider stance (ie. the offset) of the new rims...and they have a very nice 'bling bling' effect as well LOL!!

Hi Grizzlyspain,
I have a similar problem here with pricing in South Africa.

You can use wheel spacers to get the "offset" effect.

Also DO NOT put the same size all the way around, it will look cool but it will be ABSOLUTE **** to steer!!

I run 25" Maxxis Bighorns on mine, No Problem!

If I get Mud Lites 26 x 10 on the front and 26 x 12 on the back can I put them on the original rims or will I have to buy new rims too? Which are the best spacers for the Grizzly, are they easy to fit, do they add much weight and do I put them both back and front or just back?

If you look at this web page http://www.ricli.co.za/alloywheelspacer.htm you can see what the spacers look like, The grizzly uses the same spacers and extentions as a Suzuki LTZ250/400 quad rear wheel. The same spacer size on all 4 wheels. (4/110 57mm / 2.25" ) just check what you have available locally!
I put them on all 4 wheels, makes that "tipsy" feeling disappear!


The Standard Grizzly rim is 8x12 in front and 10x12 at rear with 25" tires
if you use 26" tires with 10x12 in front and 12x12 at rear I am sure it will work. It will however make your steering harder to turn!

Hi Saul,

thanks for your advice. What size Bighorns are you using? Your pictures look good. Does the exhaust power tip give you more power? I am interested in getting power tip from ebay but do not really want to rejet carb.

Hi Grizzlyspain,

My Bighorns are the same size as stock tyres, 25x8x12 in front and 25x10x12 at the back. The advantage is ... they are 6 ply and have tread on the sidewalls. Much better than the Dunflops the Griz came with.

To get the power advantage/improvement, you need to do 3 things. 1) Change the air filter. 2) Drill holes in the baffle wall in your exhaust. 3) Put on a power tip.

Vast improvement in low end power and it sounds fantastic!!

So far I have not rejetted, I hear the standard setting the Griz comes with is rich, so I should be OK. I am going to check after riding this weekend.

you can run 28s on a stock griz with aftermarket wheels, stock wheels... I dont know, I run 27s and theres plenty of clearance left. Only place my tires ever come close (still dont rub though) is the back of the Warn plow when you angle the plow all the way to one side. (no plow? no problems!)
