OK I have a 2015 Sportsman 570 tire size is F-25x8-12 and R- 25x10-12
If I run the same size or 1 size larger, so 26x9-12 Fronts and 26x11-12 Rear should I be looking at a clutch kit as well?
The riding I do is mostly around the farm in the fields and a little trails (Sandy base very little mud and some water and lots in the snow) and if so what kit should I be looking specifically?
And Are these the tires I should I be looking at. There is a lot of bush and trees and sticks for flats. I already replaced 1 tire for a branch through the sidewall of the stock Carlisles
The HTR would be a great tire for the riding you do. The 570 will handle the 26" tire like a champ. No reason to worry about a clutch kit. However, as talked about multiple times in this thread, as well as many others, you will need a wheel upgrade if you are running the OEM wheels. A 4+3 offset wheel is the key to fitting the 9" wide tire on the front with no rubbing on the tie rod ends. This is true of any 9" wide tire, not just the HTR. If new wheels aren't in the budget, you can also get it in a 25" size that will fit on your OEM's. https://www.mudthrowers.com/inc/sdetail/6599/49545

Went out for our first ride with our new Bear Claw HTRs yesterday. Have a 2018 sportsman 570SP touring. We upgraded to the HTRs from the stock 14” tires but did not change the height of the tire. The width changed by an inch. With two of us on the bike, the rear tires rubbed immediately on the support framing for the footwells. The suspension is tightened all the way. Did some quick alterations to the plate on the framing but still rubbed. My wife decided to stay home for the day, so I was riding solo. There was still some rubbing when hitting small dips in roads or on rough trails. I’m not sure what to do to fix the problem. What’s the easiest, least expensive fix?
