DOES ANYONE KNOW IF 27X10X12 MUD BUGS FIT ON A STOCK FRONT RIM OF A FOREMAN 500. IF IT WILL GO ON THE RIM DO YOU NEED A WHEEL SPACER OR AN OFFSET RIM OR SOME COMBINATION OF THE TWO.

ALSO, WHILE IM ASKING HOW DO YOU DRAIN AND FLUSH THE FRONT AND REAR DIFF'S. I LOOKED, I DIDN'T SEE A DRAIN PLUG IN THE BOTTOM. I SEE THE FILL HOLE, BUT NO DRAIN PLUG. FOR SURE YOU DON'T HAVE TO JACK THE BIKE UP, AND SPIN THE WHEELS UNTIL THE GEARS SLING ALL THE OIL OUT OF THE FILL HOLE!!!!!

You probably have to take the cover off of the differential, I think there is one haven't really looked, and then after it drains seal it back up and fill it. As far as the tires go, they should fit fine I have 27 589s on delta series and they don't rub at all, with stock rim the only potential problems that I could see would be the front fender brackets. Buyem and tryem metal is easy to bend.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT I AM GOING TO DO YET!! I THOUGHT ABOUT BUYING THE TIRES THEN I THOUGHT ABOUT BUYING A BIG FOOT KIT WITH RIMS AND ALL, BUT THEN I THOUGHT ABOUT PAYING THE BIKE OFF FIRST BECAUSE I HAVEN'T REALLY GOT STUCK YET!!

Robb has 27 Mudbugs on his 500 with stock rims and no lift. I haven't heard him say anything about tire rub.

there are drain plugs on the bottom of the diffs. You have to put a socket through the black metal guards underneath the diffs.

The 27 will fit on the 450 and 500 with no mods needed...
I confirm this, as I had 27in Mudbugs on stock wheels on both my 450 and 500!! And they work real well!
