Whats everybody doing for tires on these things since it has the weird rear wheel and tire size? Tire/wheel combo? Guy is just wanting tires but wondered if it might not be better to just get a combo because tires i have seen are pricey because of odd size? Any suggestions?

I am switching to the ITP 10" Rims just because when I went to Black River Falls last time I slashed the sidewall and couldnt get a replacement tire. Lucky for me they had a tube that fit but that wont always be the case. Hate to have a trip go to crap because of a tire like that. As for the tire I am looking at the Razr2 for the rear next time.

Depends on where you live and what width you can get away with .

Please don't use wheel spacers on the front !
Give me sometime on this one , I ran ITP's rears and 4:1 fronts on stock a-arms, I'll check some past post's and let you know.
Quick guess run 3:2 rims on the front. I found running the rear wider is less painful doing tree dodging.

If you go to a 10 inch wheel in the rear it will be a 4+3 offset. As for tires I have the razr 2s and they are great but the gbc xrex is the exact same tire at half the price. You will want a 3+2 offset wheel on the front to match the rear 10 inch wheels.

It clears, but not by much. My preference is to stay 11 with more clearance. There's a pic on here that shows clearance and depending on offset how tight it is. But the pic showed about 1/4 in clearance, maybe less...

As far as I'm aware the sizing options without going to a larger tyre are the Kendal kutter with a 22x9x11, the maxis razr 2 in a 22x11x11, and soon the maxis bill balance razr in a 22x10x11, I havnt seen anything smaller than a 22" but there are 23" and 24" tyres available,

Maxxis does not make the razr 2 in an 11 inch wheel only the razr in an 11.
