Hello All. Looking at replacing my stock Maxxis tires on my 14 Grizzly 700. Looking at the Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 Radial which closely fits my riding terrain. My tire guy has suggested that I go up a size on the Bighorns to 26X9X12 and 26X11X12 from stock size 25X8X12 and 25X10X12. The ONLY concern I have is how much of an increase in diameter the up sized tires will add to the total length of the atv. When loaded into the back of my GMC Sierra with 6 1/2' box, the tailgate closes with 1/4" to spare. I DON'T want to lose that ability to shut the tailgate. Was hoping someone on the forum may have done this up size and whether they could still shut the tailgate without forcing it on a similar truck with a 6 1/2' box? TIA for any and all responses!
