This chart covers the basic specs for popular tire choices.
This thread is NOT for discussing which tires are (better/stronger/cooler).
There are plenty of other threads for that.
This thread is for technical facts about tires.
If you want to add a tire to this chart, please reply with the information and I will integrate your new data into the chart.
Please be thorough and also post the source of the data.

No, you'll rub on the strut if you use wheels with the stock offset.
But you can go with 25x8x12 tires all around.
Or you can get wheels with a 4+3 offset, and then you can do 26x9x12 all around, possibly even 27x9x12.
First image below is 25x8x12 on front.
Second image below is 25x10x12 on front.

Still might have trouble with rubbing that offset nub on the strut, but you can fit it up and try it out.

I would like to run same size tires all around, and preferably 25 or 26 X 10 X 12 and for now using stock wheels. If I use 1 inch spacers on the front, will that be enough to keep the tire from rubbing on that little nub sticking out on the strut? Also, what is the purpose of that nub sticking out? Can it just be ground off without weakining something else on the strut?

I don't know if it would fit, you'd have to try it out.
I think the purpose of that nub is to keep the tires from hitting the springs.

Thanks Mustang. Think I will give it a try. Using the same tires all the way around appeales to me, ie., one spare, and come close to tracking front to rear.

Hey guys, I just got some of these STI HD Beadlocks in 14x7 with a 4+3 offset and some Interco Reptiles in 26x10-14 and the fitment is great. It widened the quad a bit though (didn't get any measurements but I can if wanted) but it looks pretty mean now. There is also no rubbing lock to lock so no worries there either.

I also got the Candy Blue STI locking rings and these are as close to the factory VooDoo Blue as you can get without your own paint/powder coat.

Overall look:


More than enough clearance for the front struts:


Another:


Rear A-Arms:


Another:


Definitely going to be slinging some mud with these:

And the glory shot, dat booty:

Those tires look like they can pull thru anything. The setup looks good. Do I see a set of fender flairs in the future?

Looks great!
I have a 325 with STI Beadlocks mill finish aluminum and 26.5 growlers
Just got a good deal on a 3 month old stupid clean used 570 with 100 miles on her and a bunch of goodies already installed ,just ordered the same rims black 12" with the same blue rings and the 27 pitbull growlers.
However they told me they are on back order so can I ask where you purchased and confirm the blue ring standard blue not the candy correct.Thanks
also the wider stance on the 325 keeps it planted,with the lift kit and disconnected the sway bar

I got my setup from Rocky Mountain ATV/MC. And I made an edit after looking at the website again, you want the Candy Blue rings (the ones I have) because the normal Blue rings are too dark. I had them reverse in my original post.
