Was going to order some 28" Zillas for my brute and was told the Zillas run small. Now considering 30" zillas but am concerned with 30's being too big and causing axle damage. Any ideas. It is for the bike in my sig. Anybody out there have 28 zillas that can measure them for "true size"?

Thanks.

The 30's are still VERY light, I think 25 & 32 lb's or something close to that.. I don't see any problems with it! Definitely don't for see Axel damage with that set up. Looking for a set myself when they come out..

Most of the axle damage can be controlled by one's thumb ;) I have had no axle issues on my 08 Brute running 30" mudzillas, on the other hand my son has gone thru tie rods and axles on his 07 Brute running 28" Silverbacks (no lift)

im running them and they are great for what i ride. im just gonna get some 31'' laws later. so i wont have to work the bike as much. but they measure up to true size and never slick over. about 2'' taller than the 29.5. again it is all about the thumb. you could have 32'' backs and not break any axles if you have a light thumb. but the mud lites and mud zillas are one of the two lightest tires out there right now too good luck;)

Thanks guys. I am still a little heavy on the throttle but I am learning. Looks like a set of 30's are in my near future. As soon as someone gets a set to buy.:rockn:
