Rudz.....what size are you getting for those tires. If you go bigger (27 or larger) your going to have to clutch the Brute Force. Those things weigh a ton. I picked one up at a dealer once and they were definetly heavier than the Outlaws I was running at the time.

Great tire but if you dont reclutch it, I'm buying stock in Kawi belts...lol

I like the way you explained that Swampcat. Thanks, I do like to go into the mud but not all the time. I just like the look of the skinnys. I think I will just buy the same widths I got and just go up an inch to 27"

The 27x9x12 is 32 lbs the 27x12x12 is 33 lbs. Is that heavy? I am not sure what my stock tires weigh . I am just sick of being stuck.

You should be fine. You'll notice a little bit of a loss. There are heavier than the stockers. When you get in the muddy stuff, just run the machine in low gear and you should be fine.

Check out the GBC Dirt Devil 2 tires. I have them on my Sportsman 500 and they are awesome. They are a very heavy tire and you will lose so power.

In my opinion 27s are the biggest you want to go to hold your trail riding ability. I trail ride with 27" XTRS and they do just fine in all conditions (except backwards) Any higher and off camber and hill climbs become a bit harder. I ran 27s on my cat with no mods and did fine, each bike it diffrent though.

If the 27x12x12 is only 1 lb heavier than the 9 front I would go with the skinny fronts and wide backs. I only went with all wides because I got a good deal on 4 wides and couldn't sell/trade two of them for fronts, so I just put them on to try.

I actually don't mind them. These Zillas are lighter in 28" than my 27" skinny/wide mudlites, and being that these are 11" wide, they have pretty good trail manners too. It's quite stable with them. I didn't think I would like all wides for trail, but I've gotten used to them, and they do well in the snow. They do float a lot in deep water though which is a pain to steer but... Overall I like them. My opinion may change though if these were heavier. Forget about keeping clean with wides on the front.

Still wouldn't mind getting a set of skinny/wide trail tires for everyday use
