any commnts on this tire? would you run a 26" or 27" XTR on a stock bike? will the 27" fit without cutting or rubbing anything? i have heard that the itp tires measure 1' smaller than stated. does this mean the 27 is actually a 26". wow thats alot of questions.
TIA

i have the 26 xtr and they dont rub at all but you get no traction in reverse so once your stuck your stuck no getting out backwards

I am runnung the 27 inch xtr and get a little bit of rubbing if my wife is on the back. However in reverence to their performance....I am nothing but pleased and have experienced the opposite. They aren't "unstoppable", but I have had they perform pretty **** good .

Just Saturday, some guys and I were riding a gasline, and I was verrrrrry stuck in a deep hole. Couldn't go an inch more forward, but when I got up on the back rack and bounced, I pulled right out in reverse .

My buddy has them on his Brute and he really likes them. The big advantage is in them being a radial. A radials "footprint" expands under load, placing more of the actual tire in contact with the surface. This thereby gains more traction. As for the 27" measuring short I have not seen this to be the case. I have the 27" Mud Lite XL's and he as the 27" Mud Lite XTR, and they stand the same height next to each other. Therefore, I do not see why the XTR's would rub when the XL's I have do not.

I have the 27" XTR and I love 'em. I did have the rubbing problem on the front when the bike was in a downward angle with the wheels turned sharp. They would hit the fender stab. bars. Put a lift kit on and no rubbing.
