Do any of you run the same size tires on all four corners?  I am thinking about getting new tires and was wondering if I would be better off getting the same size all the way around. That way I could rotate them. I spin the rears all the time and they wear faster than the fronts. Rotating them would help a lot.

I was thinking about going 27x10x12's....do any of you run this?

good one   same here Ray.  I have had 2 opportunities to run the same on all corners and was talked out of it by different folks.  I don't think I will pass up the third time.  I do believe they will be Big Horns or that style anyhow.  Let me know how you like it if you do go with all 4 the same...MD

If you front and rear wheels are the same offset so you can rotate, I say go for it.

Didn't think about the offset. Still worth a try.

you will like them. Here is my philosophy.....if you run big tires be ready for drivetrain problems. Mainly belt problems. I always try to keep the weight off of the tires and wheels. I think that really makes a machine last and be trouble free.
When I get new tires I tend to not get too far away from the stock size. I may go a little bit bigger but not much. You shed some pounds in the rear so that helps to go a bit bigger. I think the size you went with was perfect and you will enjoy it.
Let us know

I think you will love that set up.  That is exactly what I am trying to go with if I can unload my 27" evo's on someone.  They are all 4 9" wide.  I don't mind the width, I just need a little more height.

Narrower in the rear is better for quicker steering.  The wider rear tires make it harder to steer sharp since they take a lot to slip.

My preference is 9" wide all the way around.  Looks weird but steers a lot better.
