Im looking for some recommendations for tires to use while doing some good rock climbing. Currently i have some Rip Saw RT tires 27x9 and 27x11's and took it out a few weekends ago with what I think was an okay result. just wasnt sure if there might be a radial option that works better for that type of terrain vs what I have. I also have the stock rims and CST 26" tires here as well. Was also thinking about mimicking the 1000s Scramber and running same size front and rear. THanks in advance for any input!

I think the Rips are a very good choice for the rocks.

Ditch the sway bar. Put a set of 27.5 Pitbull Growlers on the stock rims and set your spring preload up about 2 or 3 notches all the way around according to your weight a preference. The machine will climb things you probably shouldn't be climbing If you're able to hang on it lol.
Clean out your spark arrestor too if you haven't already.

Hey, today was my first real trip out with it since unplugging my exhaust and the difference is amazing!!
I can be cruising along about 20-25 and punch it and it will lift the front wheels now. It always ran good but now its wicked fast.

Yeah I went up some things i probably shouldn't have been able too where my neighbor bailed fast while i was tethered to him. Im sitting at about 240lbs and currently the shocks are all on the middle setting. I figured i should turn them all the way up. Also considering the Elka stage 3 or highers but if i go to that extent i might as well sell this and get a 1000S. Also I'm assuming its the wheel tire combo but my top speed via display is 64mph, does that sound correct?

in his defense he had just the day before installed a 2" cup lift and well not good for climbing lol
