Still have the original tires that came on my Ace 570, and they are pretty worn. Since much of my travel is on either asphalt or dry hard pack trail, I am thinking of a heavy duty 8 ply tire that is larger and will last a lot longer than the stock 25", as well as be more resistant to punctures.. Anyone have opinions on the 27 Terrabite, and how suitable it would be for the Ace? Is 27x9-12 workable with stock wheels? Would appreciate any helpful advice.

I couldn't see as suitable for the Ace? Nice tread all the same. But someone must be able to confirm further??
I doubt that there would be clearance issues, but the main concern is excessive stress on mechanical components, as well as higher center of gravity. Even with stock 25" tires, the Ace does not really excell in off camber situations. Also thinking that 9" tires may not fit on the stock 10" wheels?

I have these on my 900SP and can say that there are clearance issues when turning, I rub pretty bad and can't turn as tight as I used to. I also installed some after market slightly wider A-arms and I've broken the grade 8 bolt in the A-arm twice now.

I do like how they ride & handle the trail, but I don't think I would do them again. They've got 1700 miles and have barely 1/4 of the tread worn down.

Ditto jdr2710. I have 900SP same tires/size and have some clearance issues, but only in reverse usually, or when put it in an extreme off camber and I have to turn near full-lock. I'm running the 4/3 offset rims, high-clearance forward a-arms, and a modified front spring set-up.

Very impressed with the tires. I ride a lot of sharp jagged rocks, ruts, and off camber, and these do a great job. They are a heavy tire, and I don't really worry about ripping out a side wall, but they may not be the best for a lighter/lower powered machine. The 900 lugs along with tons of power to spare.

Good luck!
