Tires

Thinking of uprgrading to some more aggressive tires. What size could I go with on a 2 inch lift with stock wheels? 99 foreman 450.

2 inch lift will get you to 27's but might need some trimming?
and you might NOT be happy with the power loss , as your altering gearing going taller and taller tires are also a bunch heavier, so, pending what tire, will depend on how much power gets lost running them!

I'd do 26's or light 27's. Heavy 27s will suck too much power.


Unless you want to do a GR....

So 27s would not be good without a GR?

you would have to tell us what type of riding you do MOST, for anyone to honestly recommend a tire for your style/type of riding
and remember there is NO perfect tire, what works great in mud, tend to suck on hard pack and vice versa!
you have to be honest and ask yourself what do I ride on MOST< and pick a tire that excels there and then does OK -SH else where!

Buddy has 27" Zilla's on his and no lift kit or trimming. Didn't affect gearing/power at all. Zilla's are aggressive but much lighter than say a MudLite. I've got 27" Zilla's on my '15 Rubicon and love them.
