I really dig the idea of a more aggressive tire in only a slightly taller profile. Without being able to change the gearing in the diffs like you can in fullsize vehicles, the performance really has to suffer with the 29.5" and taller tires. Nice choice!
Kinda how I felt. Had I gone to 29.5 it would had needed clutch work and probably a lift. I picked up the 29.5 and just weighed to much for my liking. Also keeping everything factory(clutchs,lift) I can pop my factory tires back on there and not have to adjust anything
Not to much power loss at all. I added the sport low with it. I lost a couple mph off top end. Zero belt slipping. I just kept it in low when I'm in the mud. You won't need no clutch work. She's a beast . I hardly ever use 4wd anymore
Sport low was a piece of cake. I watched a video on YouTube first then I did it. It's a few min job. As far as it helped I never ran it on my factory tires but with it installed with the bigger tires it feels more powerful then it did with stock tires and no sport low. I can't imagine the power of sport low with my factory tires. One day I'm gonna put them back on I'm willing to bet it could pull the front off the ground. Before sport low I hated riding in low the throttle response wasn't there and the top end was to low well with the sportlow it takes care of that. You can actually enjoy low before it felt like a super low on a 500. Now it feels like your getting the true 85 hp from bottom to the top.
I run the 9.5 up front and 11s in the back the weight is 39 and 44lbs compared to the 29.5 there 9.5 is 44 and the 11s are 52. So there's a big difference in too. The 28s paddle better because the lugs are spaced a bit wider but I'm sure makes them rougher. Going slow on hard surfaces there rough but after 5-10 mph there not bad at all. As far as they handle I've had them up to 66mph on highway and ya there pretty squirrelly
