27x9x12 or 27x10x12 front
27x11x12 or 27x12x12 rear
This is a good tire size for trail riding and getting through a good bit of mud. Also give a littl more ground clearnce and still have a good look. I would goo with the ITP 589, Highlifter MST, or the GATOR they are all very good for a wide range of Ridding.

i got 27's in the itp 589 m/s and i like em they run well ive noticed they wear considerably when you do alot of pavement riding on them and i havnt quite got the hang of muddin on them yet and tend to dig myself down and bottom out quickly but thats driver error im sure

I have 27 x 10 x 12 all the way around my 05 Rubicon. No Lift kit, no rub. They work great. Feels like a new bike in muddy/swampy situations. It is a Rubicon, but is as close to a Foreman that you will get. My buddy rides an 05 Foreman 500, they look the same. I'm guessing same clearance.

See pics for fit. Could easily use 12" wide on rear, and possibly front too.

I WOULD GO WITH 27X9X12 OR 27X11X12 ITP 589's. THIS IS THE BEST ALL AROUND TIRE. VERY GOOD TREAD LIFE ON HARD SURFACES AND GOOD IN THE MUD. I'V HAD 26X12X12 589's ON MY BIKE UNTIL I PUT 28X10.5X12 OUTLAWS ON. I KNOW ALOT OF PEOPLE WHO RUN ON 589's. THIS IS DIFFENTLY WHAT I WOULD GO WITH. GOOD LUCK...
