SuthernSavage Who don't like speed? The point is, these things are already slow and underpowered. A lot of folks don't want to lose anymore speed, or power. The trails I ride have a good mixture of mud, rock, creeks, hills, but a lot of it is built for speed too

I doubt you lost any speed. Your speedometer is set up for a 25" tire. When you put bigger tires on, it makes your speedometer read slow.


Get a GPS on your phone and check your actual speed vs what your speedometer reads. 25 divided by 27 is .926 so your speedo is probably about 7.5- 8% off now.
Yeah, I've thought about doing the gps thing and
Meant to mention this in my reply. But on my truck, it's the opposite. I've got 35s and my speedo says I'm going faster than what I'm actually going. It's off between 4-7 mph depending on if clocking with gps, or the digital road side gun/signs.

SuthernSavage I've got 2 good, long days of riding in with them and I'm happy with them so far. They don't run as small, as people say. It depends on the amount of air in them. I can deff tell the difference in size. I was worried about them running small, so I went with the 27x11z12 and 9-12 on the front. I didn't want too big, as I didn't want to lose too much speed and power. Well the size runs true in my case. I did lose some speed. I'd say anywhere between 7-10 mph, so I wish, I could have went with 25, or 26 at most. They do great in the mud, felt very close to stock on trails, and even surprised me on rocks. As you'd imagine, they are rough on the road at low speed and when turning at low speeds, but smooths out at about 8-10mph. But who's going to ride the roads on these anyway, right? Lol

I'll post a few pics. I apologize in advance, because in thesepics, the tires were mounted backwards lol. I had rushed to get them put on my wheels, then had to go home and take my tires off my quad, and put these on. In the meantime, I had about 6 guys waiting on me at the riding park. I overlooked the one directional tread and just threw them on. As luck would have it. I had both, front and rear on opposite sides. Didn't notice until I took these pics. The pic in the mud hole, is poor quality cause my brother in law sent me the video in a text.


You can see the difference from the stocks in the last pic. They were still practically [email protected] 500 miles on them. They are 25◊10-12 vs the Zillas 27◊11-12. I run them at 7.5 psi and they felt great. I'll do an update later with more time on the tires and with the tires mounted in true direction. Plus I just added a winch 😉

toms99tj I would stay away from the 26s they are to small. I just put 28s on my girlfriends 01 450
