I feel you pain I have a 2013 1 month old and had a nail in my front! Plugged also. I don't like riding with a plug that could easily get pulled out on a trail ride etc. I just ordered 4 new tires for mine from Chaparrel Motorsports web site. I ordered them and they were here in 2 days free shipping. I went with IPT Mudlites XL. I kept original rim size just went 2 inches wider on the rear. My wifes 335 Polaris had ITP mudlites 6 ply and I have no problem with mud,roots,rocks etc. In fact I use 4X4 less since I put them on. I am now trying yo sell the Carlisle 489's with only 70 actual miles on them. The Carlisle's are only 4 ply and way over priced. There are many superior tires for the same price or just a lil more...Hope this helps...

Search craigslist or ask your dealer for new take offs. Lots of people take stocks off instantly. Otherwise they are way overpriced.

To answer your question, yes, you can put 26-9-14 on your stock rims with no problems.

Thank you you for a direct answer. One more question will it hurt the 4 wheeler if i run a different brand and different tread on the front and still run stock tires on the back?

As long as they are the same height it won't hurt anything. I see people do this all the time without problems.
