u should be perfect with the maroon and red for the 31's but def go wide in rear trust me rack high has my old tires and i have had ag vtreads also and now went back with skinny wide once again......all skinny dig bad and all wide are harder to steer....skinny wide work great cuz the skinnies pull ya through the hole and the fattys help push....

Skinny in the front Wide in the back. Always the best solution the only time i need a winch is when its up to the racks. but thats just me. Also wides look so much better in my opinion.

When thinking of what tires I wanted between the backs and the Outlaw 2. A hard decision was made and I bought the 30" silverbacks. Then it was skinny, wides, skinny/wide combo. I live in Florida and do mostly swamp and mud riding I decided to go with all 30x11x14 wides, all the way around. I was concerned about the steering. But, by mistake the place I purchased them from instead of using the same 8x14 rim as rear they used the 6x14, which actually made the front tire not as wide. Its not as hard to steer as I thought it would be and with a 2" lift no rubbing at all. Night and day compared to the mudzillas. Just wanted to share some info. I will be getting the outlaw 2's next, possibly for the wifes KQ.

I ran skinny 30" mud lites and later traded the rears for wides and loved it, was amazed the difference it made!


I'd rather be riding instead I'm using tapatalk!

Yeah wider tires grab the sides of the ruts a lot easier & push you along. I ran 29.5x12's on all 4 and use to just walk through stuff like it was nothing. While others w/ skinnies had to work it.

But saying that, I'll add that there are conditions were skinny is better.

IMO, the only time skinnies will out perform a wide is in "pit race" type situations with a lot of water and a moderate layer of silt on the bottom. You need the tires to drop quick, grab the hard bottom underneath and start pushing.

Outside of that, wides win. You don't want to go looking for bottom in a mud pit, or you're not going to go very far.

28x10s or 27x11s

Alrighty fellas im set on zillas, just torn with the skinny wide show down. I want 28's. Just wondering, 10's or 12's for the rear. Biggest concern is i dont want the rear to float to hard. I want the rear to stay in contact with the bottom. My other thought is 27x11s all the way around. I know polaris425 runs them and loves them. Anyone done the 28x10s all the way around and have opinion on them? Oh yeah, 12" IRS ITP type 4 wheels.

I run 27x11x14 which are bout an inch taller than my buddies 28 inch outlaws but they are pretty good in the mud and i still have top end even though it feels extremely sketchy...It turns ok but i find myself wishing i had power steering after a long day of riding

28-9-14 all the way round mine. They were on the machine when I bought it, personally they don't fit my riding style or taste. They dig like crazy and my back doesn't float at all. Heck the front doesn't even float much.

I had 29 s/w combo...did GREAT! Then went to skinny 29's...did GREAT. I liked the all skinny way better in water, they do grab bottom a lot better in the water, they don't make you wheelie as much. In the mud it's apples to apples...same thing IMO.

Now for 31's I run s/w combo and it does great!

Mine just wants to float too much in the back. Only complaint I'd have with it.
