    Fit Stock Rims?

    2019 X2. Thinking about GBC Dirt Commanders. I would like to avoid the expense of replacing stock rims, that I already paid for. Any problem putting these on stock rims:

    27X9-12 Front

    27X11-12 Rear

    Thanks

    Nope. You shouldn't have any problems. I run 28x 10 on my stock 12" rims with no issues at all.

    What I am concerned about is at what point is the tire to wide for the rim. Stock tire widths are 8" front/10" rear, so I am guessing that just another inch (9" front/11" rear), isn't going to be a big deal.

    While I would like some extra ground clearance, I think I will go with 27's and not get to crazy. I have experienced power loss from huge tires before, so I learned that lesson already.

    You'll be good with +1" 27's, that has been the most common upsize on stock wheels around here over the years.

    I'm in the same boat as the OP except I would like put 27" Tusk Terrabites on my '19' X4, 27 x 9-12 Front, 27 x 11-12 Rear. I guessing there won't be any problems going from 26" to 27" ? Or would it just be as good to go the oem stock size in the Terrabites?

    You're good to go with the larger size.

    Go with the 27" for sure! No modifications needed and additional ground clearance is a plus.

    A good spare allows you to enjoy the ride and drive out!
