Can bigger tires go on the scrambler

Just wondering if you can actually put bigger tires on because of the already different front to rear tire sizes????No sure if it will throw it out of whack?

you can run bigger tires on the scrambler, but the front will have to be 1 inch taller to keep the gearing right

Would you have to worry about doing anything to the clutch if you were to go 1 or 2 inches taller on the tires respective to their different sizes... say +2" to each?

I picked up an 08 last fall and I love it, just considering my options and want to make sure I don't shoot myself in the foot, haha. I like riding trails and playing in the mud and dont want to have to worry about wearing on the belt too badly, I know these things are geared pretty high to start with.

I am thinking on bigger tires as well.

Lots of mud out there with all the snow melt. Along with the mud, lots of ruts.
Last night, I had my skid plate getting hung up numerous times.

I see a vendor on Fee-bay selling a tire/wheel combo with 25x10x12 rears and 26x9x12 fronts.

Hopefully, someone has that size on their Scrambler and can comment on overall performance. Any rubbing? Mods needed?
With the gearing already quite high, maybe dropping a tooth on the fron sprocket would help.

Also, looking for comments on type of tire. I am up in the air on either the ITP Mud Lite or the TSL Swamp lite.
Riding is mainly aggressive trail. Although this time of year it is more of aggressive mud!

I had the ITP Mud Lites on my Eiger, and loved them. If I get a UTE again, that will be my first purchase

New tires are needed soon.

Went out last night and found some nasty mud - good thing for a winch.
Blew a belt though.

I never hear bad things about Mud-Lites - that will most likely be my choice.

Now just a matter of deciding on larger tires. I hope some people that have gone bigger can weigh in.
The only concern is the gearing. Will it dog it out on the low end? Smoke belts?
It dawned on me after some thought that I can't change the sprockets due to the shaft drive on front.

My Eiger came stock with 25" tires, I went to a 26" tire and felt no lack of power overall. I believe however I would not of wanted to go any bigger. I did later change the clutch to the EPI heavy duty set, and I have tons and tons of lowend.

From what I understand the front should be 1 inch taller. But I think there would be a limit to the tire difference. Stock, the front to rear ratio is .95 and going to a 25/26 combo yields a .96 ratio and a 26/27 combo yields a .96 ratio also. I would think that the drive line should accept that little bit of mismatch..
