    width of 26x9 / 26x11 or 27x9 / 27x11 tires on factory wheels?

    I want to replace the factory tire with a better, slightly taller tire. BUT I’m limited on going more than about 1/2” wider overall than it sits now (trailer width). Was hoping someone would make a 2” lift (so that wheels/tires would be pulled in just a bit), but nothing available.

    Anyone that has replaced their stock tires with the sizes in the title mind check overall width at widest part of tire and posting that and model of tire please?

    Trying to see if I’ll be able to run anything but stock tires and still fit on my trailer (currently have 1/2” or so room on each side, but pretty easy to line up and think i would be fine with only 1/4” on each side).

    If you want some more lift and not have the junk OEM springs that sag then get some Eibach springs. To my knowledge JBS is the only one selling them.

    Are you saying they are more narrow than other tires in these sizes or ?

    Yeah, just would like to see a few more reviews and measurements before plunking down $400+, you know?!?

    No, just a good tire. I misread your original post

    When I put my 2" lift on it narrowed up my width some, just something to consider.

    I am running GBC Dirt Commander Radials 27X9.00R12 Front/27X11.00R12 Rear, on stock rims (no lift/stock clutch). The widest point where the tire walls would rub up against a trailer rail is just a little under 59.5". I had an issue with fitting on an older trailer I had (5X8'), even with the stock tires. Ended up buying a great new 6X10' Mirage trailer, with a fold up ramp.

    I am in the southwest and explore old mines in a lot of rugged mountain off camber situations....where a little extra width might help prevent a roll over. So, I was actually disappointed that my width didn't come out much wider than stock, even with the 11" rears! Thinking maybe about some wheel spacers to widen it up a little, but concerned that might mess with the steering. I highly recommend these tires for my conditions: decomposed granite trails, granite rock crawling, and desert sand. (No mud to speak of, so can't comment on performance there.)

    Would you mind measuring the width of the front and rear tires at the widest point please?

    My trailer is 5x9 and really would prefer not to go bigger as this one is a great size for using on my deer lease to move blinds, etc.

    Thanks!!!

    RCF, I too only had about 1/2 to spare in my toy hauler. Going from the 26" bighorn 2.0's to the 27" tusk terrabites did not change that at all. On the other hand the terrabites in 27" only came out to 26" on stock wheels.
