    you can do it, and people do, but I personally would not run the same size tire on all 4 factory rims. This is because you have to remember, the factory rims are not the same size, the rear are wider. If you try and fit the same size tire on 2 different sized (width) rims, you don't get the same riding height all the way around. Most tires have 2 widths, front/rear, just get the appropriate sizes. And like other have said, the spare will work for any size, as long as the offset of the rim is right.

    That being said, I run the same tire on all 4 corners! However, that's because I got 4 identical aftermarket rims - this means same tire size on all the same rim sizes.

    hope this helps.

    I would measure the height of your stock tires front and rear first. I am sure running the same size of aftermarket tire can't be any worse!

I had to think about that one for a sec.. If you go with 27's or 28's you don't want to used the Yamaha X2 big tire kit though. The weights are too light and will make your rpm's rev super high. They are 16g weights. You should probably go with 20g weights for 27's or 18g for 28 inch tires. The X4 big tire kit are only 14g. Way too light. The stock weights are 22g. I run 18g for my X4 and its very close to the factory performance but with big tires. The Yamaha big tire kits are only really good for like 29-30" tires with big lift kits.
    338 Sorry to sound stupid , I see you run a spacer in the rear. What is that for?

    I am stuck between the below

    I would like to do the 28x10x14 but not sure how far past the fender mud flaps that will stick out. I Don`t want it slinging mud in the cab the whole time. I have read so many tire sizes" in the wheel and tire forum, now I am gun shy on making a purchase. My main concerns are below and any feed back I would be very grateful.

    27 to 28 27 not doing any clutch work this year to may other things to buy for now
    12 to 14 inch rims - With a lift I hear 14 look better than 12 wish i seen some pictures
    same on all four corners would be great but see a lot of maybe 9 front to 11 rear.
    Roctane or Blackwater Evolutions don`t think this is a huge deal but SMH SMH

    Thanks and wow that is a huge difference in just that move in size.

    What was the reason for the move up? in tire size and how has this worked out for you overall ride wise?

    I originally ordered the ITPs in 27" because the ITP web site said they measured 27.8" tall and only 26.5 lbs. They measure 27" exactlly at 10 psi. I was shooting for a 28" tire. The 9" width looked a little wimpy to, so I thought I would try the Carnivores at 28" x10" They actually measure 28.75" at 5 psi. so they are a little taller then I wanted. The Hunterworks sheave is a must with this size tire. JMHO

    I have reached a point where riding is more important than wrenching. I am busy enough just maintaining everything. For those who love to wrench and do mods to their machine, hats off to you. Tire selection is for us non competitive racers to be more competitive.

    The spacers in the rear are to make up for the different backspacing of the aftermarket wheels. Without them it would be too narrow IMO.

    Greggo,

    The spacer in the rear, in my opinion, is just a preference and just for looks. I run the same 27" x 10" x 14" tires at all four corners and don't use any spacers. It really depends on the tires you are running. Happy tire hunting!
