I wanna carry a spare tire and have found a pretty cool spare tire mount kit that attaches to the roll bar above the bed. The tires that came on my machine are 28x9.00R on the front and 28x11.00R on the rear. I'd prefer to pack the 28x9 as the spare because it's width is smaller, am wondering if in the event I have a flat on the back, would the smaller tire fit and get me home. Thanks a bunch man! Scott

I'm thinking both of these items are a must for my new Talon.

Could you use a factory front wheel with the 28 inch tire as a spare if all your other tires are 32’s. Im talking like put it on the front and don’t engage 4wd. Kinda like a limp back to camp type thing. I know running different size tires is a no no on the rear. They must be the same size. But the front as long as you don’t engage i4wd should be ok?

I wouldn’t be packing the tire with me. Just leaving it at camp in case of a non trail fixable flat.

You can run different sizes on the rear for short trips in the dirt, the tires will just slip and it will pull the the side the 28" is on. I wouldn't go too fast or far that way however.

DO NOT EVER run a 28" and 32" together on the front, even in 2WD. It will trigger codes and put the machine in limp mode and no i4WD. Depending on the situation and what codes are set, the machine may not come out of limp mode (even when you put the 32" back on) until the codes are cleared. If you can't clear the codes on the trail, you will be stuck with 2WD until you can clear the codes.
