I have been looking at buying these (27x10x14 and 27x12x10) tires on STI HD3 rim, is anyone using this setup. I have a 2013 base model scrambler white. If so how do you guys like them?

I had them on our king quads, they gripped good, wore pretty good, and rode pretty good-- a lot better than the mud lites I had on before them.I would get another set.

how much of an offset on the wheels? i would try to keep the offset as close to the stock wheels as possible. especially with no EPS.

I think I found the off set, it is 4+3 in the front and 4+4 in the rear. I have been looking at STI HD3 rims. From what I have read these are pretty close to the stock rims and tires.

Or is there another tire that might be better. I'm getting those swamp lites for my wife's scrambler.

as far as I know..the HD3 comes in 2 offsets for the 4/156 bolt pattern.....6+1 and 4+3 offsets...I am not sure on the scramblers..but if you go 6+1 on the fronts the 10" wheel may be tight with a 6+1 offset compared to a 4+3 in the front...hope some one chimes in on this..

Scrambler 850 is the same as the other XP bikes. Steel rims (14x6) will be 5+1, while alloy rims (16x7) are 6+1 offsets. A 4+3 offset would work, but the rim is going to stick out 2 inches on each side, making the overall width over 50 inches. There are threads in this forum with more details if you need

I ran some itp wheels that had a wide offset. bump steer was crazy. guess it all depends on the terrain you ride.

Like Al said, the HD3 now come in 2 offsets. 6+1 and 4+3. Where I ride the 4+3 make you barely fit through the width restrictors at the trail crossings and in some places make your quad not trail legal as it's over 50" wide.
