stock grizzly tire help?

Hello, just purchased a totally stock 2008 700 grizzly. Just wondering what is the biggest size tire I can fit on the stock rims with no spacers? Will a 26x12x12 fit on the back and a 26x10x12 fit on the front? Thanks. I am debating between swamp lites and maxxis zilla's.

You can fit 29.5 10/12 outlaws on a stock 700 with stock wheels and no spacers.

Zillas are much better in mud than 26 inch swamplites. The swamplites may be a better in sand and hardpack. Zillas are lighter too. Also the zillas run short, so if you want a 26 inch tire get 27 inch zillas. They are only 1/4-1/2 inch taller than most other 26 inch tires.

so if i run a 27x10x12 up front and a 27x12x12 in the back with zilla on stock rims i should be fine? Would I have to do any clutch work with 27" tires. Thanks. I do about 50-50 mud-trail riding so i assume these would be the tires that would work best for me.

Yeah you should be fine with that set up as far as keeping the stock clutch set-up. Those tires are so light that I doubt you would really need clutch work.

The zillas are definitely one of the best tires for 50-50 trail/mud riding. And my personal favorite for those conditions, especially on a bike without clutch/power mods. I have that exact set up that i run when i trail ride. 27x10x12 and 27x12x12 zillas on stock wheels. I use to use them for mud riding too and they did great. But i wanted to go bigger since i do some hardcore mud riding more often now so i got 30 inch backs for when i mud ride.

They will not rub at all ever, they fit no problem. Definitely dont need clutch work. I didnt notice any power loss because the bike actually feels more powerful with the 27 inch zillas than stock tires because they pull instead of spin like the stock tires do. So the additional weight and size is more than made up for by traction. Zillas are one of the very lightest tires you can get they are tough too so dont worry about that.

Someone will probably chime in and say you should probably do clutch work. However, clutch work is a good modification even with stock tires. But you definitely do not need to do clutch work for those tires. The only difference i noticed is i liked to use low more often for very slow technical riding where as with the stock tires high was fine.

Thanks, glad to hear I don't have to waste money on rims and clutch work, save that for later.

another question, I am now thinking of getting some 12" 312 SS rims. Will the extra weight require clutch work. I am getting 27x11x12 back and 27x9x12 front. Thanks.
