Tire size 87 350 4x4

What is the biggest tire anyone has tried to successfully fit under a 86-88ish Foreman 350 4x4. Also, has anyone tried to build a lift kit for one. It is an awesome quad with mostly new plastic, and had the engine completely gone through, including a bored out .060 cylinder job. Tons of power just want the big digs to match. Anyones input would be greatly appreciated.

I found some longer shocks for a lift on my old one and it fit 28's. You can't lift them much or the u-joints will give you problems. I would guess a 26/27 would fit under a stock one depending on the tire (how true to size it is).

I sold mine, traded it back in and sold it again. When I traded it back in I mounted my 28's on it again to show another member. This is what it looks like with them on (the guy I sold it to beat the crap out of the machine and hacked up the front bumper I had on it, kind of made me sick because it was like new when I sold it).

tire size

i have 25 inchers on my 87 with no problem but i am a 300 pound rider so i need a little more room for the tires to move, i bet you could do 26 inchers with no worries, as for a lift i personaly wouldnt bother because it puts alot of unwanted strain on the joints but then again i like to ride and not wrench, i have seen a few with lifts and they were all homemade and im not sure how they accomplished it, i will be putting 25 inch swamplites on mine in a few weeks here, if you ever need any parts for that sweetheart just let me know i have alot of used parts for that and am always buying more parts machines for those wheelers so i dont ever have to go without have fun with it and keep er going!

Thanks guys 27's sound good. Will post a pic soon. As for parts, how about the plastic cover that runs from the seat to the handlebars, that goes over the air box. Can't seem to locate one. Thanks, this forum is gonna be awesome for me.

Even a busted one would be ok. I should be able to mend it.

I think I have one upstairs, I can look on Monday. Is yours a Fourtrax (black cover) or Foreman (gray cover)?

It's a black one, but either one would be great.
