    Welcome. I can't comment on the tires/stance (sorry), but the roll cage works pretty well. I've put mine on it's side a few times now and even with the standard 3 point harness I was reasonably secure. I would recommend a 4 or 5 point harness though. When I went over I held on tight with both hands. With only one, you might be asking too much of that arm.

    That said, the Ace is pretty easy to drive one handed. I did it not long ago just to see if I could. I definitely couldn't go nuts, but it was surprisingly easy to control in the trails. (Says the guy who rolls on his side and hits trees. ha!)

    You'll also get used to the "tippyness" pretty quickly. It's more stable than you'd think, but it IS easy to tip if you yank the wheel to tight.

    Good luck with your wheels. There have been lots of great discussions on the topic here so I'm sure you'll find your answer. And welcome again to the Ace Club! Whoo!

    Thank you Mustang, im not sure if i want to go higher or / taller ? im looking for wider. right now im running stock (25x8x12) front and (25x10 x12) rear, so your thinking (26x9x14)frt) and (26x11x14)rear), how about a 10" wide in the front ? and or why a 9" in the frt ? just wondering what the handling will be like ? im just thinking maybe a little bit wider in the front 10" will help the tipsiness a bit better. just wondering ???

    the rims take care of the stability they are wider than stock and the offsets give you an xtra couple inches over stock wheelbase width
    the tire sizes are pretty std for radials 9 inch fronts 11 inch rears
    and being radials they give a good ride on hard pack .
    26 inch diameter is real good on an ace
    this is the setup on both our Aces ..........

    I also run the 26x9's and 26x11's but I have mine on 12 inch 4+3 offset ITP wheels and I am 55 inches wide in the rear and 52.5 inches wide in the front. These are really just about the perfect size width tires for the Ace....and if put on 4+3 offset wheels the extra width makes them much more stable and only 1/2 inch taller than stock....so no performance loss that I've ever noticed. I like the looks of yours Mustang. I have the Maxxis Ceros tires on mine, since I am street legal here in Tn. and the less aggressive tread makes for a smooth ride on pavement, and still have great grip on the trails
