    If anyone wants to play I'd like to start a fitment chart and possibly add it the ATV tire sticky.



    Here's the info required, based on my Bighorn2 as an example. All measurements are to be taken at the stock 22 psi to keep things consistent. Later on we'll combine them into an easy to read chart so folks will know what mods, if any are required (chain guard removal, tab removal, axle setback, extended swingarm, etc. to mount a particular tire, the mounted diameter will indicate the required gearing, seating pressures will indicate potential safety and mounting issues, etc. Incomplete submissions will not be added to the chart so make sure you're willing to commit to taking ALL the measurements as accurately as possible.



    I'll include measurements of the stock knobbie later today as a basis for comparison.



    I've found one of the best poorboy ways to accurately measure section width and rolling diameter is by using two framing or drywall squares held square with one another and used like calipers.



    Tire description: Maxxis MU09 Bighorn2.0



    Mfr's Size designation: 26X9R14



    Actual mounted diameter, TW rim @ 22psi: 27"



    Actual mounted cross section, TW rim @ 22 psi: 7 3/4"



    Seating pressure: 70 psi (24 hours, 90F)



    Weight: 21 lbs. 9.5 oz.



    Chain clearance: 7/16" (o-ring chain)



    Chain guard trimming: Yes



    Chain guard removal: No



    Chain guard tab removal: No



    Minimum axle setback in stock swingarm: 6+ on snail adjusters.



    Recomended rear sprocket: 55T



    Extended swingarm: Recomended



    I realize things like seating pressures, swingarm clearance and sprocket choices are subjective, but include your info regarding your particular tire choice and we'll include them in the "notes"" section for each tire.



    If anyone can think of other parameters I've missed which will help in tire selection, feel free to post.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Seating pressure: 75-80 psi



    Chain clearance: 1/2" (o-ring chain)



    Chain guard trimming: No, I did bend the mounting tabs slightly.



    Chain guard removal: No



    Chain guard tab removal: No



    Minimum axle setback in stock swingarm: It barely clears at 2 1/2. I'm currently at 7 1/2, with about 3/4" clearance at the front of the swingarm.



    Recomended rear sprocket: 55T



    Extended swingarm: Recomended

    I want to try the EFX as well. Unfortunately the published tire sizing don't always represent the actual tire very well. For that reason I prefer to see the tire in the flesh before investing, and I don't have a local retailer for the tire. Since Cali doesn't allow street use of quads there's no reason to market the tire here. If you want to be the guinea pig this thread gives you some idea what has worked in terms of width.



    We've discovered that for the most part they all fit with few clearance problems as long as you keep to the 9" widths. Actual diameter will determine final gearing and usually that's unknown until it's mounted on a rim.



    I run a 14/55 with the 27" inflated Bighorn. You will have some performance losses on-road due to the weight of the tire. IIRC, on paper the required sprocket for that tire height was only a 52T or 53T, but the 55 helps make up for the power loss.



    The other issue is bead seating pressure. If it's too high you risk destroying the integrity of the tire in the process of seating the bead. So far that's an unknown with the EFX as well. Some brands haven't seated without exploding and some practically fall onto the rim.



    That's about all I can add based on my own experiences. That said, we're all waiting for you to boldly go where we're too cheap to go



    Oh, handling will change according to the profile of the tire. The more squared off the resulting mounted curvature of the tire fasce is is the more of a tendency the tire will have to "climb"" its sidewalls. Rounder the better.

    Another tire I haven't seen in the flesh, but looks promising in internet pics. I'd have to get a look at the carcass and feel the compound to get a better idea about it:

    A couple of internet sources have it for around 80 bucks.

    Zackly. I'm still looking for something along the lines of my ill-fated truck tire experiment, minus the weight, squareness and mounting difficulties:

    80 bucks? Where? That's cheaper than my cost from the distributor.
