Hi there, mostly use my 12' polaris ranger crew for plowing a small community. No mods except a boss v plow and hydraulics.

I would like to put the 14" Maxxis Snow Beast Tires with the MSA Battle Wheel. Will the 14x9 tire fit a 14x10 wheel? Web sites attached for reference.

Snow Beast | Maxxis USA
M23 Battle UTV Wheel ATV Wheel by MSA Wheels


Also, will I need a lift to have the 14 inch wheel? The Boss plow drops the front end quite a bit with the weight and I am looking at putting HD springs on. Anyone run the Boss V Plow with HD springs? Do they stop the sagging or just reduce it a bit?

Thanks for the help PRC...

I ran 27x9x14 on front and 27x11x14 on the back of my 800 and never came close to rubbing. You should be fine with no lift

Diameter of the wheel is irrelevant - a 27" tire on a 12" wheel takes up the same real estate as a 27" tire in a 14" wheel! Just need to be cognizant of the off-set. The 14x10 Battle has a 0 offset so they will stick out a bit further than your stockers; a little wider stance - will throw more snow on you unless you extend your fender flares a bit. Good lookin' wheel!

I may have misstated my question, the Maxxis tire says it requires a 14x9 rim, and i would like to buy a 14x10 rim. Not knowing much about tires, I was wondering if I can make that combination work.....?

It's generally not a good idea to install a tire that is narrower than the wheel (ie; 9" wide tire on a 10" wheel). You will likely lose any bead protection, and in a worst case scenario, could have issues keeping the bead seated in extreme off-road conditions.

For an off-road application, it's a standard practice to run a wheel that is 2" to 4" (sometimes even more) narrower than the tire.

Will it physically fit and work?......yes, it will.......but it says that they offer that wheel in a 14 x 7, so if it were mine, I would want to use that for the front and use the 10" wheel on the rear. Actually, unless you're going to run a 12" wide tire on the rear, I would use a 7" wide wheel on the rear as well.
