Howdy! new polaris owner here making the transfer from honda! my situation is this, i recently purchased a bone stock 2013 sportsman 500 ho, so im starting from scratch. i plan on getting the mega mayhems in 28", 9" front and 11" rear. will the wider tires float up on me during water wheelies? obviously i plan on snorkel kit, die electric grease everything, clutch kit, etc.

My last 500 HO was a 2001 model, but you should have no problem keeping the rears planted.

IIRC What I did with mine was I went 1" wider with the front and rear wheels. I believe I ran 4+3 front (versus 4+2 stock) and 5+3 rear versus 4+3 stock) with the 3 being the outside measurement. I used Douglas 2 pc welded disc wheels for simplicity and durability. This kept me more compact than most

I think floating is more of an old honda thing as the bikes were small and light.
