Different tires

Anyone running anything other than the stock ITPs? Ive been kicking the idea around about some 28 Outlaw2s. Id like to go bigger than the stock size. But really not liking that no aftermarket companies are offering lift kits, clutch kits, etc yet.

Not yet. But thinking about some that might do a little better in some mud. I dont do a lot of deep muddling, but the stock tires dont have a lot of grab when it comes to that. Love this rig though so far.

There was no rubbing but do not buy those tires, I had them brand new with the bike and had 3 flat under 500km they ride good but the way the tread is design if you ever get a branch or tree they get stuck in the and causes a flat, I just switch back to the origianal tires for now I am not buying those tire ever again.

Thankfully Textron put on a good set of tires here. Only a couple weeks back I was looking at all the glowing reviews, especially ones that provide some great perspective. Just happy I won't be using them on hard surfaces, instead, mostly soft and some hardcore terrain.

Still liking the 28 Blackwaters? Got stuck in some mud last week and it wasnt that deep, just NO traction with stock tires.

Definitely going to have to look into aftermarket options depending on your use of the machine. That's not to say that the stock set up is bad, but I don't think they'll get you through tougher terrain.
