Comments: 4-5 hours steady going for install, reasonably good instructions, Great info on GC for installing these. Be sure to hang everything loosely so you can adjust the fitment. I found the best way was to stand the atv up on the rear rack, as per instructions, and the install was easy to do alone. CAUTION: Be sure to secure to atv when it is standing up as it is not rear stable.

Hello,

I was just looking at your pics as I am seriously considering a set of Rockers... I se you have 26.5" Rockers and they look great. Can you please tell me if you are running a 12" wheel in those pics or is that a 14" I think I want to stick with a 12" and am torn between the 25.5 and 26.5 tires so i was happy to see your pics. Thanks for the feedback
