The tires are 27x12x12 in the rear and 27x10x12 in front.
With these tires I did have just a tad bit of rubbing on the fender bars, but I did have to turn as sharp as I could with it to rub them.
I put the lift in friday and also the springs, and man what a difference!
The stearing is tighter. The stearing is alot more responsive with the lift in. The rear is alot stiffer, which I like.
Yesterday I got to put a few miles on it through trails, dirt roads, hills, and oh yes....the mud.
The new stearing feel was awesome! leaning into corners at a good clip was fun. You can't get to crazy with it because you will bring a tire off the ground on fast corners.
So overall I am impressed with the new handling of wheeler.
Dirt roads was a little tricky doing donuts but with some time it is easy and I can keep it pinned around corners, and felt like I was in a sprint car.
Climbing hills not a problem
Mud was pretty fun. But I don't care what kind of lift you have if you have a straight axle the lift only helps the front. Tires only helps clearence of the axle.
I go it stuck twice which sucked but was also fun.
Overall I have heard people say don't install the springs and lift but I am glad I did. Only thing to look for is the rear brake cables are pretty tight with the lift so I might look for a some brake extensions.
BTW I will post some pics tomorrow.
