truck tires on the commander?

i was wondering if anyone knows the metric size of a tire to equal a 27 inch atv tire,the reason im asking is i was wanting to put a mud tire off a truck on the commander,they would have to last alot longer than a atv tire.
plus i dont mud mine to death anyways


i do know that a 225 70 14 equals a 26 atv tire i took a tape measure to the,
i just dont know what a 27 would be equal with

First: truck tire too heavy and stiff
Second: lugs shallower than a atv all turf tire
Third: stop doing smoke shows with your atv mud tires and they'll last longer lol

I've seen a BF Mud Terrain equipped Commander somewhere but don't know the size.
I was also thinking about it since I'm mostly do gravel and sick of flat tires.

Don't know anything about these, but if they will work on the Rhino, I don't see why they wouldn't work on a Commander.

Unless you are using it for mostly on road use I would stick with an UTV tire. Truck tires are heavy and they will put some strain on your drive train.

I'll just give you an example so you will be able to figure it out for different sizes,this way you will also know the width.i.e. 255/75-14 the first number is the width of the tires in millimeters since there are 25.4 millimeters in an inch than the tire is approx. 10 inches wide.The second is the percentage of sidewall compared to the width of the tire 75% of 10 inches is 7 1/2" and the third number is the rim diameter in inches.So you will have 14 inches for the rim plus 7 1/2" of sidewall above and below the rim so your total diameter for this tire will be 29".A 255/65-14 would be a 27" tire as well as a 255/60-15 or a 235/70-14.

Yes the stock rims will work.I would recommend taking a look at maxxis.com they make 27" light truck tires in the 14" rim size they are called buckshot mudders.

I saw pics of a guy with boggers as well. Interco (Super Swamper) makes a few different treads styles in 30 to 33 range. They even have a couple in 14" so they would work on stock 14" rims.
