Guys I'm now leaning to getting the 28" Outlaw for 12" rims. 28x12.5x12 would be 38.7lbs per tire for a total of 77.4 lbs total in back and then 28x9.5x12 would be 33.8lbs for a total of 67.6 in the front. Do you think the machine would be able to turn them with a clutch kit and have no problems?

That's pretty damn heavy.

It's your call, but imo something like a zilla would be better.

I want a good mud tire and not a shitty one that will bottom me out and get me stuck every time. Need something aggressive not a little 1/4" tread.

How about silverback ? They are quite a bit lighter, and cheaper.

If you wanna run tires like the big dogs, you need to get a big dog machine, and a 450 is more of a puppy, and will be very prone to need clutch and axle work to run those tires, and also it doesn't have the power to turn them properly, and even if you get the extra 13 hp of the 570 you will still be underpowered for those tires in mud

Understand man. I'll just roll with the Mega Mayhems since that'll do me just as good as any other tire would I hope. With an extra perk of a winch I'm sure to be satisfied riding with the guys. Mega Mayhems won't be a problem, right? My quad will be able to turn them I'm sure...

Yeah mega's will do ya. You just can't expect a whole lot out of a mid bore doing deeper mud with big tires and all. Stick to 28" mega's or zilla's, do the clutch kit and see how you like it. Then look into a snorkel and maybe an ECM upgrade.

I think Mega Mayhems are what I'm wrapped around now. They will do fine, or no?
The Mega's should be a lot easier on the machine, but you are still going to need a clutch kit. Have fun and I wasn't trying to insult your machine, just pass on a little advice before you either tore something up or were extremely disappointed with the machine performance with those heavy tires

Oh yeah, I had a quick question if I could swap the cargo box in the front with something sturdier like the back rack so I can pull it out without breaking the damn cargo box, seeing it's just latch on by two of the latches.

I think a more sturdy solution would be better. I don't think the thin-walled tubes in the rear rack will hold up to repeated stress from being pulled out. If it was me, I'd look into a front bumper and maybe have a d-ring welded on.
