I don't think they will fit without rubbing.

I don't know if I'd say run. Walk may be more appropriate.
This.

A 250 is not going to be happy about turning 27's...especially in mud. I would also be concerned with broken axles.

By the way...welcome to the site.

Since you said shoes, I'm going to assume drum brakes. You bled the brakes, but are the slave cylinders frozen? Remove the drum, squeeze the brakes, and see if the shoes move out. When you squeeze the lever, is it firm or mushy?

Also, make sure you have the brake shoes adjusted up good before you bleed them.

Still have air in the system. If you're not using a vacuum bleeder, try one.
