Stock Rims + 26 Grim Reapers?

Hey all,
I am leaning toward 26" Grim Reapers on stock rims.
Does anybody run this combo? If so anything I have to modify
or change to run them?
Thanks
Mike Washington

If I were you I'd weigh the Grim's as 8 ply is way overkill IMHO.

I have that setup and love it.
No mod to fit
They will rob alot of power ,but the 850 has enough to spare,,,IMO
I guess It could be overkill depending where you ride.
The rock where we ride will eat most tires up.Usually the sidewall
So far Iv been spared.

i run them also, great tire. I've used them on snow trail riding in WI, rocky trails in Arkansas, and mud at times. Very little wear after 1,700 miles.
Got em on the grizzly also.

Using a top quality tire is never overkill. 8 plys will save lots of flat tire headaches, and take you thru all kinds of terrain. Good choice in my opinion.

Nope I have those on now. I really like them. Very smooth on the hard stuff but when you need the grip the do the job. I have about 400 + miles on them so far. The tread is softer than the grims so they will not last as long.
