I will kick this thing off.

These are 14" double beadlock carbon fiber wheels from Hiper
With 26/9/14 and 26/11/14 Bighorn 1's

That thing is AMAZING!!!! Those are some SWEET looking wheels too. I wish I could have got my 850SP in Stealth Black. Now i see the new 1000's come in black. That is a BEAUT of a machine!!!

I have the black 2015 1000 Sportsman and black is hard to keep clean and looking good although when cleaned up does look very sharp!
I still think my Sunset red 850 looks better now that I compared the two...

Ya know, I kinda wish I had gotten the red myself. I got the Titanium Matte Metallic, and it's nice looking, but that Red is just a nice color for an ATV.


These are the SP aluminum caste wheels, with stock tires, but I do want to get some Maxxis Bighorns for it.

Im trying to find out what size Maxxis Bighorns I can run on these SP wheels without having to do any clutching.

Looks good. Smart to go 8.5" wide on all 4 corners. Doesn't look like you will get to dirty from over spray when getting in to the mud.

Thanks im having a litte issue with the rear rubbing. Here is what i cut so far.

Heres what it looks like pretty much done.

This is where it still rubs.

Whuch of these do you guys recommend to stop the rubbing?

Yea they arent rubbing due to the width but i think if it space it out an inch or so itll miss that part of the fender that is molded in.

I know that it's too late now, but if you went with a tire that was 1 inch smaller, do you think you would have had any issues at all?

Try some HD springs, my 25.9 terms only rubbed when the suspension bottomed out.

I was of the understanding the XP's would handle 30" tires. With possible minor rubbing on full suspension compression.

It rubs if i go over bumps or am getting on the throttle coming out of a hole.

Did you end up trimming a lot? What about Vikings suggestion on the HD springs?

Do all 4 hd springs, I found all 4 went soft fast even on max preload.
I trimmed mine where you did as well, if you get some polaris flairs they will cover it up. Aftermarket flairs mount inside the well and you will lose the clearance you just gained.
