This is a discussion on How big of tires can I use.. within the Grizzly Talk forums, part of the Grizzly Forums category; How big of tires can i put on my 2010 700 Grizz, How big can i go on the tires? since stock is 25 8x10? ...
27's you'll have more than enough clearance for SLs.... I know for a fact that you can run 28 SLs and have enough room... theres also no comparison between a 27 and 28 inch SL. the 28 is much more meaty but it all depends on your style of riding...
Mhmm maybe i'll go to 27s?? but also spend more money that way :P. Im thinking getting Swamp Lites there a pretty good tire to eh? like I wont be going threw mud much. but would want a tire that would get me out for when i do, and i like to do spin outs on gravel roads to soo.. I heard Swamp Lites would be good for me then...
I just bought a set of Mud Lites on rims from the Yamaha dealer for my 700. I wanted 27" tires on 14" wheels, but the parts guy talked me out of them. He said I would have to change parts on the clutch to compensate for the 27" tires or I would lose a lot of power. He also mentioned broken axles, etc. become much more likely with the 27" tires.
So I went with 26" on 12" wheels. The 26", at 12 and 10 inches wide, are an inch wider than the 27" they had (11 and 9 inches wide), so I suppose the traction will be about the same.
We rolled the 26" and 27" over beside a Grizzly 700 in the showroom, and it did look as if the 27" would have clearance problems. The 27" also looked a lot more than one inch bigger than the 26". One reason might be that the 27" they have is a radial, while the 26" is a non-radial. Maybe the Mud Lite 27" tires really are bigger than 27"? I know this doesn't make sense but that's the way it seemed at the time.
