I have a 2011 400ho with 1.5" billet spacers and stock wheels. I have decided to order ITP Reptile Radials. Can I fit the 27s or should I stick with 26s? No lift, no arms.
I really want to place the order today, so any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I assume the billet spacers have given you a lift between 1-2" and believe the 27" would work, but someone here would need to chime in.

I think he means he has wheel spacers. Not spacers as in a lift.

Humm...missed that one and thought it may be spacers to apply between the spring spaces to lift the unit as you might see in some automotive applications.

I could be wrong, that's just the way I read it.

Yep, wheel spacers. I put some used 26in carlisles on last week and already destroyed one. Would like to do the 27s, but don't want to spend the money on new tires that won't fit!

Well we've ran 27 outlaw radials on a box stock 500 crew for a year with no rubbing and they run true to height

Well, I ended up tubing my current tire until I can decide what to do. I was thinking the Reptiles (6-ply) would keep the weight down, and I don't want a straight-up mud tire. Any suggestions for tires with a similar tread pattern?

I've got a buddy with truck tires on his artic cat and I'd really like to do it, but now I've gotta figure out the offsets. I'll probably need a lift to make it work though. Back to searching PRC!

I had 33" Gumbo Mudders (Denmans or Gateways @ the time) back in the early 80s on my GMC K15. Bro had 44s on his '84. I've always liked those tires. You could hear those tires a mile away on pavement.

If you're gonna run truck tires, then Boggers would definitely be my choice. They're as aggressive as a DOT tire can get and will last forever on something the weight of a Ranger. But you mentioned trying to keep weight down, and you're NOT gonna do that with Boggers. Plus, there are no Boggers made for 14" wheels. The smallest one is a 31x12.50x15. You can get the SSR in a 27x9.50x14, the TSL Radial in a 225/85R14 (28.5x9x14), or TSL Bias in a 28 (actually 27.4") x8.50x14.

So I'm still undecided. I'm now thinking about getting some 27" bighorns and a set of forward a-arms. Can I run the a-arms without lifting the buggy? I've found so much info on this site about what will and won't fit, but haven't found any detailed install threads. I'll be doing one I guess

Yes you can run 27s with just forward a arms and no lift

After all that, I want to say thanks for the info! Just bought a set of pull offs from a RZR. 10hrs on 26" Bighorns and the steel wheels. $250. I don't the the rears will fit, but I should be able to use the fronts for spares. Thanks everyone!
