have a 2009 550xp and looking to buy tires this week and was wondering is it ok to run (stock is 26x8x14 front, 26x10x14 rear) a 26x9x14 front and a 26x11x14 rear?

Either way that size will fit without issue. Depending on their weight you may end up wanting to do a little clutch work to get your bottom end and mid range back. I lost a lot with the Ripsaws, but they are very heavy- 40lbs I think on the rims.

Some one correct me if I am wrong. Isn't there a sway bar issue with 09s with wider than 10" rear tires? It is an easy fix though. Should be posts on this forum about that. Polaris changed the design for 2010 and was no longer an issue. Need more input from 2009 owners.

Let us know how they wear.

To me they look like worn down normal silverbacks. But i imagine the zillas wear a bit better.
