Don't go over 30" tire. I got 32" on1000R need more horsepower in steep rock crawling. it will stall out. It needs lower gearing like 50-60%lower in low range.
Just normal riding you would love the 32"

Unless one has a big budget I thinks 30's would do the trick. Also unsprung weight might be a consideration. Just some thoughts.. T- BOB
If you get the internal reduction it is in the transmission and there is 0 additional unsprung weight. Reds Off Road did mine at 25% reduction (Compensated for 35s and gave me top gear back). No worries and if you use portals the unsprung weight is probably 50 pounds for portal and bigger tires. Calls for upgrades in suspension parts front and back. No worries just plenty of options. I have portals as well the 4" Portals at 30% (more low end power). Wish all the toy add on stuff was less expensive but then if you wanna play... :cool:
