I've Got a 96 400 foreman that needed tires. I use it on my hunting land as a work horse.I'm thinking about going with a 27" tire from a 24" for more ground clearance to not get stuck as often.But I also pull an 8 disc plow for food plots. How much gearing are the 27" tires going to take away? Will I still be able to pull the plow without breaking stuff. The tires I'm thinking about are the ITP Mudlite xtr. If the 27" are to big.What would you recommend (25", 26")Any help will be great.

Ok, nobody wants to stick their neck out and answer if I can pull plow. How about just telling me your experiances with larger tires. Is there a huge differance in pulling power with 27" tires? how about 26" or 25" ? Am I going to break stuff with bigger tires?
Also I can't decide between 2 tires I'm thinking either ITP mud lite xtr or GBC gator any ideas on what 1 is better in deep sand soil?

What are you concerned about breaking? Axles? Obviously, it will take away some power, but if you were to get your ride jetted with a new filter I would think it would be about the same.

hi. #48 fan Thanks for the in put. As for what can I break how about axles with C/V's, front & rear diffs, Clutch , trans are these foremans unbreakable even with bigger tires? I really do not know. Mine has been a great atv. Do they hold up with big tires and really working it? also What is recommended For jetting and filter completely stock? Thanks Murwin

No problem. I would say it might have some extra wear on your clutch. Look at the post titled 27's or 28's. Iridedeep, just put some 27's on and busted a ball joint. Now what was he doing I dunno... It's just like putting 20's on a Truck. 20's add stress to your brakes, and take away hp. But in order to go to 22's or 24's they recommend upgrading your whole suspension, which is about 5K. But you still see alot of Yukon's and Tahoe's with 22's or 24's that don't have problems, because they only go around down and are not raced or driven hard. I think I would know if I was hurting the bike if I was to be riding it. If you are basically just moving stuff around on your land and not really swamping it out, I would think you might be okay... Somebody else give an opinion.
