    What 28's you run makes a difference. 28 Mudlights are fine, but HTR's rub hard. Ask about the tire you want to run, somebody's tried it.

    Factory rear wheels can be ran all around if you want to run 10's. They will work on the front rims, but are real easy to knock off.

    Slug it and get a sheave. I just did a slug and sheave on one that ran 28's for about 1200 miles. You could see the wear on the wet clutch drum.

    Yeah, slug it for sure... and depending on how much money is in your budget you might want to consider getting portals... then you could easily do 30"s or higher.

    I'm not sure what clearance issues might arise on the 1st Gen Wolverine and 28s, but I run 28x10x12 Bighorn 2.0 all around with no issues at all on my X2. Wider front rims would be better, of course, but I had no trouble mounting the tires. For my type of riding, relatively low-speed, very rocky, I prefer big tires on small-ish rims to allow more sidewall flex and let the tire conform to the terrain better. It also softens the ride noticeably. This setup wouldn't be the best for high-speed trail riding with lots of heavy side loads, but you can always air up for the occasional blast if you have concerns about the beads separating. No question that larger diameter rims are definitely sexier and there is a much larger field of tires to choose from for 14" rims.

    Tsckey do you have a picture of the tires and rims? Wolveyman and I are in this discussion as he is trying to help my newbie brain imploding OMG, so many accessories hope the wife dont leave me lol. I am trying to see what the real difference between 12 and 14 is

    A smaller rim/tire will be affected more by holes. As stated above, more choices on 14" rims and tires made for sxs. Do you have a warranty? How much mud will be flying on you with 28's?. I ran Mudlite 12x12x27 on both my Rhino's, they were unbelievable. Stock fender flares were not enough. We sometimes make MODs only to create another issue. Mudlites used to be a bias tire, I always wanted to try their radial XTR. Huge difference between bias/radial. Good luck with your choice.
