We have one of these in the kawi section, just thought some people might find it usefull here too...

If you've put larger than stock tires on your Honda, w/o a lift kit, please post what model quad, and the tires specs, and any problems you ran into w/ rubbing etc... Pictures are awesome too if you have them.

my 300 didnt rub at all with my 27s skinny laws with no lift.

i put 28 skinny backs on my buddies 500 with no lift. the only thing we had to due was bend the front fender brackets some. i dont think we did anything on the back.

I have 27x12x11 super swampers on the back of a 2wd 420. I measured them before I put them on and they actually measured 29" tall. With the suspension compressed, they just barely rubbed the metal bar that supports the plastics where the floorboards and fenders come together. They don't actually hit the plastics but there is no extra room. Unfortunatly, I don't know about the front. Here is a pic showing the rear.

What the biggest that a 99 foreman 400 will fit. Would it fit 27" ITP MudLites on 14" ITP rims c series type 7's? I know the bolt pattern will fit but will the tires rub?

Well that's not really the point of this thread. The point is what will fit STOCK... So... I really really wish people would quit posting lifted bikes in here. I'm pretty sure I've been very clear about that. If ya'll want to know what fits w/ how much lift we need to start a new thread for that.
