Bigger tires? Axles breaking? Warning from dealer? What should I do?
I recently was in my polaris dealer showroom and saw some sweet 29.5" Anarchy (I think) tires mounted on matte black Polaris rims, they looked so sweet, so I inquired about price and he was gonna give me a sweet deal on the set but then proceeded to ask what machine I had and then said to not even bother because I'll snap my axles???? I'm new to aftermarket atv parts and big tires and am wondering what I can (should) do before I mount big tires on my '11 Sportsman 850. What are the best aftermarket axles (for the price) and what other mods should I make. And/or is it even worth it?
I know guys who run 29.5s on stock Canams with out much issue.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. I really would like some big tires eventually but sounds like I should start somewhere else first.
The guy that I talked to at the dealership always is honest with me and always gives me deals.
