Hey guys, great looking site! I have a 2005 kaw 700 praire 4x4. I need a new set of skin and I cannot find the answer anywhere...BUT...what is the largest tire (hight and width) that I can put on the factory rims. Than for the help! I currently have 25x10x12 on the back and 12x8x12 on the front....
Front rim is 12x6 back rim is 12x7.5

That size and style will give you good service and relatively good ride quality. They'll be a bit harder to turn because of the increased width but just barely so and they'll ride a little rougher than the factory tires but again, just barely so.

I have kenda executioners on my prairie, 27x10's in the front and 27x12's on the rear. I use my quad for mostly mud riding as well so the trade-off on steering and ride quality was acceptable.

Thanls for the input! I use myh kawi for ice fishing and bowhunting. I needed a new set of skins and I didnt want to spend a ton of cash just because I dont really trail ride.... Thoughts? It was 280 bucks and free shipping. When I get them mounted I will try and post some pics!

I put the tires on today and they look great. Not sure how but they seem to steer alot easier than my stock tires even though they are larger and wider,
