Smart thumb.... thats the key to not breaking axles.... However As with all larger, aggressive tires, breaking axles is always waiting behind the door, regardless.

The two key words here are 'throttle control' you don't have to spin the heck out of a tire like an Outlaw or Silverback to make it work.

Use a little four wheel finesse..

You can snap axles with factorys on . I love my backs. Havent had them long but my bike handles them well.

size is up to you. if you want to go all out get 30s or 32s if not get something a little smaller. if you get 30's or bigger you will need at very least a red secondary. Yellow for 32's for sure.

the bigger the tire, the smarter the thumb has to be. im rollin on 30'' lites and i havnt had any problems. i dont see why i would need a secondary spring either. IMO i would go with the 30''s and if your not satisfied by the way your brute turns them, get a spring.

If you get some 30's with a little meat you will find out quick if you get in the thick stuff. The back and laws grab. Belts get expensive. I have always changed my secondary to match my tires and haven't changed a belt yet.

yeah.. running stock secondary w/ large aggressive tires is just asking for disaster.

I have 30 inch backs and a red secondary. Its a good combo. I still have good top end. Change secondary no doubt!

I just changed from 29.5 laws to the 32 Silverbacks and I'm running the red spring and no problems. Belts on the other hand has been an issue even with the 29.5's. I had to take the weights off and put the stock ones back on cause when taking it easy in the holes the weights were not rolling over fast enough. No problems now. You will definitely have to change springs if you go with the backs and like others has said red or yellow.

That's the smartest thing I've heard in a while!!! lol


I have had no issues at all with my 32's!!! None!! I rode on stock axles for a while and had 31" Outlaws before that for even longer. Just gotta have "throttle control", as mentioned many times above!!:rockn::rockn:
