I recently purchased an 05 Forman 500 2WD. Went riding today and was tired of getting stuck! Looking at the ITP MudLites, and would like to know how big can I go without any modifications? Are the factory fronts good enough, or should I swap them out too?

I had 27x12x12 mudlites on the back of mine the day i got it with no lift, as far as changing out the front tires it don't matter they are not going to be helping you. with the stock tires on the front the bike will be easier to turn.

Steely, I also have a 2x4 05 foreman. I dont know what your riden in to get stuck all the time, but so far i ve been in some deep mud with just stock tires on and have never had any problems...... I did put on a set of mud tires and a winch over the winter just in case.lol The guy at the dealership told me to ride it like I stole it, and I should never have any problems.

I would think you would want the extra ground clearance and would go with a taller mud tire.
