Here is what I did to put superATV Warrior 35x10x15s with not rubbing. 1. Forward A Arms from superATV 2. 1.5 inch wheel spacers on front wheels. 3. Two inch wheel spacers on rear tires. 4 Bandit Tender (upper) springs (no spring compressor required).

Other mods that helped: 1. Fender flares from rokblokz. 2. Shift plate from CAtechusa.com 3. Hillbilly brake.

Power increase to offset additional tire weight: 1. HMF full performance exhaust 2. Dynojet Vision three tuner. 3. DynoJet Wide Band 02 sensor 4. Warrior Snorkel. 5. Throttle Body Plate from pwrtun. 6. Tune for all the mods from pwrtun ([email protected]). Power and torque increase approximately 10% from stock.

The tires are super in mud, sand and on hard surface. Will have to wait to rock climb but that is what they excel at. Tuning is always key and everyone at Dynojet, HMF and pwrtun helped and provide feedback on log files. The tires are not for everyone but they fit my driving style very well. Used stock wheels to keep offsets and they work!

My next project is to see if I can shave an inch off of the wheel spacers and still have no rubbing. It may work in the front and 50% chance in my opinion and 75% chance in the rear. Why haven't I changed them? The width and stance are super just the way they are; however, there is always room for improvement with anything.

I do not work for or nor am i supported in any way from any of these companies mentioned -- I just like their products and services.

Update, I have had a chance to put the tires to the test many times and love them. The updates were spot on and work well with the tires. Pulling out of heavy mud is no problem and the buggy will still hit 70 MPH with the new tires. There is a conversion for MPH as there is a conversion factor with the increase from 28 OEM diameter to the new 35". I am so glad I went with the larger tire it makes a massive difference and in my opinion is worth it. In the Everglades my better half even said glad you picked up the larger tires and now she understands why the larger fender flares. The HP and torque improvements are definitely help spin the larger diameter tires not to mention they added weight. Super pleased with them.

Nice

I have thought about putting 35s to help my long 4 seat out on Rocky trails. I'm a little worried about the clutches when going slow. I'd do the internal gear reduction kit, but I run tracks in the winter and it already cuts speed about in half (effectively a 12" tire)

Hoping someone comes out with a kit that only reduces low range.

That would be a bit difficult buy nothing is impossible. With the IGR at 25% mine still hits 70 MPH with 35 inch Warriors. I am actually thinking of portals top end is not my primary concern and to tell the truth I do not like driving it above 55 just not that many places where it is safe. If you run an IGR make sure to bypass the MPH speedohealer if you have one to start with/

With the IGR installed MPH is still 70MPH. For now if you get one do not use the MHP module. I will test it out in a few weeks as the initial test with the two IGR modules did not work with the MPH speedohealer installed. Will update.

Just to update a bit. I love the 35" Warriors and they make a monster difference in the performance but they do require a lot of additional items to get the max benefit. The recent addition of an Internal Gear Reduction of 25% was the final addition that brought the Talon and the 35 inch Warrior tires for SuperATV to their max potential. The primary benefit of the IGR was getting 6th gear back in high. Not a big item as the Talon was able to reach over 70 MPH in 5 th gear with the large tires. In addition, the shift points are now back where they were with the OEM 28 inch tires and with the Warriors everything is back in sync. Love the low end pull and oh yes with the IGR I can still hit over 70 MPH in 6th gear.
