I already took a set of tires back because the 26x9-12 did not fit the front. They were TOO WIDE and I want to keep this simple, but I find that it's difficult to find a brand that makes the factory 26x8-12 for the front and 26x11-12 for the back! Suggestions anyone PLEASE?

My Polaris is a 2006 Sportsman 700 EFI Browning Edition. I just want to slap new tires on and GO w/o modification.

Thanks everyone!

You could fit the STI Black Diamond XTR 26x9R-12 and 26x11R-12. They run narrow but true to height.

I have a set of STI Black Diamond XTR 27x9R-12 and 27x11R-12 on my wifes stock wheels. Her machine is like yours where a normal 9 inch wide tire will not fit.

Here is a link to our online pricing:

Hmmm I got STI DB XTR's on my 570 in 26x9 & 26x11x12 and found mine run close to spec width but small diameter wise (only measure 25"@ 5psi)

That's great info to have, thanks for sharing it! There are very few 26x9x12 that fit w/o mods on stock wheels in the value line.

I too had heard the back diamond run small in diameter. I do hear they are a good tire though.

OEM tires "SUCKS" !!!! Pit Bulls on stock rims was my choice to keep stock width and gain clearance due to them being true to height. Heck any aftermarket tire will be better than stock. Just be sure to pick a tire for your type of riding. The stock tires are trying to apply to all type of riding and fails for most types the machines are put through by us riders...lol
