So this is a simple question that I can not find a definite answer to. What is the largest tire that can be put on the Honda Talon X with stock rims, stock A-arms, and stock suspension?

I have heard alot about 32 inch tires "slightly" rubbing. I am looking at purchasing 31x10x15 inch STI Out & Back Max tire's. STI claims it to be a "true 31 inch tire". I need to know if they would clear on the stock Talon X.

I have read several things that say 30's clear no problem, and that 32's rub slightly. With this being said I think the "true" 31's should clear. Any and all input and thoughts are appreciated.

You can run a 30 but larger may rub depends on actual height width etc. You can go much larger with forward A Arms, spacers, and upper spring replacement.

BlueDog1210 thank you. The tires I am looking at are 31x10x15 they claim them to be "true to size". I'm trying to keep stock with good mud tires and there arent many options in a 15 inch rim.

I understand, and it gets more complicated the larger you go. I like your idea to keep the suspension stock. If just 31s you could replace the upper springs (Bandit) -- that gave me 1 inch in the front and 1.25 inches more height in the rear and the whole set for all four tires was $200 and no spring compressor required. It also makes the ride ever so much better even with the stock wheels. The only other issue would be the fencer well expecially the drivers side that is where I needed the most clearance.:)
