Anybody running 20 inch tires in the back?

I see the 700xx comes with 22 inch tires stock. I was wondering if anyone went to the traditional sport quad setup with 20 inchers in the back. And if it helped handling, cornering and body roll at all?

I will let you know in about a week hopefully. Just ordered some GBC X-rex tires 21x7-10 fronts and 20x11-10 on the rear.

It has to help with handling a little but as for the roll, I just don't see how tires would change that. That is more of a sway bar issue along with the IRS.

I am running 20" rears and 22" fronts. Helps abit and body roll is not as bad. Thinking of going 20" front and rear. The 700xx is sensative to front and rear shock preload .

Been running 20" rears for 12 months and it seems to run better than 22" rears, From what other members say about running 22" rears.
You loose about 1" of ground clearance on the rear though.

Learning to shift body weight helps a lot. I still can't spin really tight donuts, don't care to anyway, but at speed if you get forward and unload the rear it will slide vs roll. Also rolling on the power as you're coming through the turn breaks the wheels loose. I can basically flip the back out all the time now that I've been riding a few months. I've got 23 inch front razrs, stock rear tires, front preload around halfway and rear adjusted about 3/16 tighter. I ride mostly hard pack dusty desert trails with some sand washes, some rocky areas and occasional loose gravel. It's been said quite a few times that you really need to learn to handle the IRS. Between suspension adjustments and riding technique you can live without sway bar.

I know a lot of people disagree, but I always go a pound or more higher than recommended in the rear of the xx, just to let it break loose a lil more and it seems to help all around handling.

Not sure where you ride at RNL, but the the Sonic sway bar was a huge help on the terrain that I usually ride in southern IL.
