Hey everyone, this is my first time on here and I need some help. I have a 2013 Scrambler 850 le. The stock Carlisle tires have been terrible. I get a new hole in them every time I ride. I bought a set of Bighorn 2.0s in a 26X11-14. That is an inch wider than the factory carlisles. I thought they would work but they rub to the point that I feel as if they are going to tear the footwells out. Has anyone had this problem? if so, is there a fix for this issue?Any information would be helpful.

Haven't had that problem. I don't run those tires, but I run 26-11 on the rear and 26-9 fronts, no rubbing at all. Is yours rubbing on the front when you turn or the back?

Yea, that doesn't seem right. Double check the tire size Ted. Are the fronts also 11 in wide ?

x3, something isn't right. Lots of folks running that tire type and size without issues. Maybe you got a bad production? There were some outlaws recently that were manufactured out of specs.

I FIGURED IT OUT! My 26" tires are actually 28" tires. it must have been bad production at maxxis. I took them back to the dealer and they are handling it.

Thank you all for the advice and support. I may have never figured this out without you.

Yes, I'm telling you that the rear tires rub. They are 26x11s. at least that's what the sidewall says. I measured the tire and overall height is almost 28". I believe that the tire was produced out of spec or something. The dealership where I bought the tires is dealing with maxxis. I'm just waiting to hear back from them.
