Hi guys, I'm new here.. I have an 09 rancher 420 w/ IRS. I want to up grade the wheels and tires. I know i want the ITP 312 14" wheels, but not sure on the tires?? I have it narrowed to either the Bighorn 2.0 or the Zillas in a 26" size.. 26x9x14 front and 26x11x14 in the rear. I would prefer the bighorns because I live in Montana and do mostly hard pack trail riding, creek crossing, rocky hill climbs, and deadfall logs. My worry is that the wider profile will not fit on my stock rancher.. I DO NOT want to lift the bike nor use spacers as it prematurely wears out the axles and bearings. I have heard that the bighorns run "tall" and I'm not sure if they will fit, and they might not also clear my winch when making a sharp turn (extreme 2000lb). I have read other posts and I know for a fact the the zillas will fit (hence they run short). I also don't want a giant power loss.. I am set on the 14" wheels, and they don't make a bighorn in a 25 inch height w/ 14 inch wheel. DOES ANYONE HAVE MY SAME MACHINE WITH 26 INCH BIGHORNS2.0?? and do they clear your fenders and winch???? thanks for your help:mellow:

You probably get a good deal of power loss with the tire dimensions that you want, and it also may not handle as well either.
