Welcome to the site, Where are you in PA? A lot of the guys here are going with taller tires on the front and they say that it makes a huge difference. I`m still bone stock and fighting the same pushing condition you are but I`m working on building my dream home and that is where all my money is going. As soon as I can, I`m going with Maxxis (cheng shin) Razr 2 tires. Keep reading, alot of the guys on here swear by them. You will find all your answers here. Incredible group of people live on this site

:stupid: The razr's will make all the difference, I perfer the 2's over the originals the knobs are taller. But u cant get 2's for the rear:cry: so I have the originals for the rear and they also make a huge difference in handleing. Some ppl on here have the sonic sway-bar system and say its the best mod there is, but I cant afford that so i dont know.:disgust: Hope this helps!:tup:

Oh yea I adjusted my pre-load on my springs, (cause they were all the way soft) that helped out tons, didnt hurt the softness of the suspension at all. I went bout half way on the threads. Now she handles even better!

thanks 4 the info guys, so u think that the 22x10x11 RAZR REAR and the 23x7x10 RAZR2 FRONT will be a good setup to help with the understeer problems?? And if any of u guys would recomend a better size tires for the understeer prob than what i hav listed let me know. Thanx

Even with the Razr 2 fronts it will push/plow at low speeds. That is the nature of any machine with IRS. But the Razr 2 will make a HUGE difference in handling/cornering, especially at higher speeds. The stock tires are really soft and they roll really bad in corners. The Razrs are definitely worth the $, in fact I believe the consesus here is that the Razr rear/Razr 2 fronts is the single best upgrade you can do for the money. As far as spacers in the front, I say no way. That only increases the load on the already soft front shocks and will affect handling in a bad way.

The razr combo above helped alot with the push at high/med speeds...while the sonic sway i got helped alot with the low speed push. Because it does stiff up the rear a bit, but does not cancel out the IRS.

if yah was in vegas i would let yah ride it to see for yourself.

I will be in Vegas in November for the Sema Show. I might have to give you a call.

Stock tires are very soft and they get great traction but suck for cornering. The Razr rears are a huge improvement for power slides. Did I say huge? lol

I like ITP tires, that is all I ever had on my Raptor. But ITP has FOOLISHLY refused to make tires specifically for the XX and the stock 11" rim, so screw them! The Razrs are SUUUU-WEEET!

ITP XCT vs. Maxxis Razrs

I'm brand new to the forum and have noticed most people comment favorably on the Maxxis's but not much mention of the ITP XCT tires. I was wondering how they compare to the Maxxis's? Anyone know?
