Placing a factory order for a new 825i tomorrow...It will be factory shipped with the Ancla MT tires (26x9x12 Fr and 26x11x12 Rear)....
Dont think I am going to like these....My question is:
Will I have any clearance issues with a set of Interco Swamp Lites size 29.5x10x12 front and rear....Also, anyone know it the front and rear rim offsets are the same?? Considering rims as well....
Thanks JD

Not ordered yet !!! Hummm

Now you have got me thinking.....

The upgrade for the tires you suggest is about $1000.
Half of which I'm sure is for the 14" alloy rims....
Will have to loose some sleep on this tonight :)

The rims are about $140 each.
I just bought the Swamplites for my RSX. 28-9-14 and 28-11-14. Took them on the first ride yesterday and like them. They don't measure up to 28" though.....27" according to a level and tape measure at 7psi

Welcome to the forum poppyjohn!!!!! I think those tires will fit, maybe with a little preload on the suspension. The BigHorns are really nice.

The one nice thing is that the alloy rims if you scratch them they wont rust. The steel wheels that the Ancla tires are mount on can. I love the Big Horn tires.

Deere started using them on the gators, now every manufacturer uses them!

I ordered with the silver alloys....I really wanted to get the same tires installed on the front as the rear....the 27 x 11 x 14...but factory would only do the 9' wide....We run in a lot of soft, bottomless muskeg....wider tires perform better....
