HI was wondering which is better to purchase first...

Winch...nice to drive alone but always going with buddies. they have winches themselves.

Tire Kit...nice to have a 26 inch set of mudlite. Am thinking of buying stock rims off the foreman in order to get 12 inch rear to get the 26 inch mudlite. tired of running over rocks bashing the bike



your opinion plse

thanks

Brian

I think you answered your own question. If everyone on your group has one don't sweat getting one right a way. Go for the tires and wheels, so you don't bang up your bike.

On my 2003 rancher I had put on the winch first. But it put alot of weight on the front plus I had a warn bumper on it. This time around I have yet to buy a winch. I don't think I will ever put a winch on. I do just fine with my 26" Mudzilla's.

Tires and Rims. They give you more ground clearance so you will not tear up your bike and gives you more grip on the terrain.

get tires and rims. if you get a good enough set of tires and rims you wont need a winch.IMO And tires work all the time unlike winches.(unless you get a flat) tires and rims all the way. IMO

If you never ride alone then go with the tires but the first time you ride alone and get stuck, you'll wish you had a winch. I bought the winch first and was glad i did, saved my butt more than once.

Honestly, how much does a winch weigh it down. Can you tell it is there?

First thing I put on my Foreman was a winch, I have used it 3 times since I have had it on. I can't tell any weight difference with it being there. Next thing I plan on getting is tires.
