I wouldn't put HUGE tires on a 2WD, but going up a couple sizes offers you better ground clearance on trails, and keeps you from dragging skidplates in shallow mud.

Just keep in mind that raising your center of gravity makes you more likely to tip over, and the larger tires will rob some power from you.

Set it up for how/where you like to ride. If you like riding fast through tight trails, I wouldn't go past a 25" tire. If you like going slower over obstacles, you may be okay with a 26". I would definately have a winch on the front of your 2WD, or ride with buds who do have winches or tow straps.

I put some 25s on my wife's 2WD Recon and it does way better than the stock 22s. Very, very slight loss of power, and able to go just about anywhere my 4WD Rancher can go with a skilled driver on the Recon.
