I have a 2017 sportsman 570 base model: rad relocate, snorkels, rvs stage 3 tune, 26in Pro armor attack tires. The question i have is i wanna go with pro armor 27in dagger tires, no lift. im not worried about rims or offsets or rubbing i have trimmed the plastic on the fender a little barley noticeable. but they are very heavy tires at 36lbs front and 40lbs rear. i know a QSC clutch from RVS in needed. im worried about broken axles. ( no lift) . with no lift should this be a problem. Or is a 28in ITP mega mayhem a better choice still no lift and a little lighter of a tire. the pro armor DAGGER tire is just real nice and 8 ply too hence the added weight. thanks for any info

I don't think they are to heavy from the point of needing new axels. At that weight I do feel the QSC clutch kit is necessary!!!! As far as the 27" Daggers vs the 28" Mayhems it's a wash!!! The added weight vs the added diameter off set each other. So at that point let clearance vs tread pattern be the determining factor.

Just remember if and when you do get into any deeper mud 3 big factors in preventing axle breakage are: right thumb, to much throttle can get you in trouble; turning the handlebars from lock to lock puts the front axles at extreme angles; also be extra careful when reversing out or just backing up, that puts a lot more load on the front axles which are weaker then the rears obviously.
