I picked up some Method Race Wheels Standard 12x7 and some Raceline SXS MT 25" tires. I installed the hub caps after the picture was taken, they required spacers, about 1/4" up front and 1/2" on the rear. The front ends up at 50" wide and the rear is 52" wide.
I like those tires. I am looking to get some more aggressive tread.
I don't want to strain the smaller engine so I want to stay stock size.
I have found, so far, that the stock tires do just decent in mud. It's the ground clearance that needs fixing.
I may go 2" higher and wider before Spring calving season. Those tires look like good Christmas gifts.......
They are great tires. I have them on the little ACE and 27" on my RZR. They are a softer rubber so they will wear faster than other brands. Can't beat the price and service from Discount Tire Direct. The Method wheels are top notch too. I have the black ones. Very light! But not weak.
What did they require spacers for? What hit? I had 4+3 wheels on my old ace, with 26" tires, and never rubbed on anything. Just curious as I just ordered the same wheels in black for my Ace with 26x9 tires all the way around
Found the answer after I put my wheels on. The center caps hit the dust cover for the hub castle nut. I contacted Method to see if they make deeper center caps, if not, I'm just going to machine some spacers for the center caps, and not the wheels.
I also recently installed a set of method "the standard" 12x7 wheels in black finish and had to space the rear center cap out 1/2" and the front needed 1/4". I had no dust cover on it. I went to lowes and bought tapered pvc 3" pipe and cut it down to 1/2" thick and drill the 2 holes through for to mount the center cap with longer screws. Looks perfect this way.
