Hi!

I have a 2013 Can-Am Outlander Max 800R XT-P with the default tires and wheels, but I like to buy Maxxis Zilla, but, What's the best option?

Option 1:
- Front: 27x10x14
- Rear: 27x12x14

Option 2:
- Front: 28x9x14
- Rear: 28x11x14

Somebody with pics?



Thanks for any suggestions. :yahoo:

27" or 28" zillas on 14" wheels will give you a very short sidewall I have 28's on 12" wheels on my Grizzly.

Is there a difference between zilla and mudzilla? Stock mudzilla is 28 for my wheeler and they work well. Little rough at low speed on hard pack and tend to find ruts in a hole and on trail but they dig and get the job done.

Mudzillas are different than zillas. Zillas are a lighter tire with a slightly different tread pattern and shorter lug. Zillas are a trail / mud tire where as Mudzillas are Maxxis' true mud tire.

Are you going to 27 or 28's for any specific reason?
They are great for clearance, and looks, but they also have some drawbacks.

Drawbacks are, you will want/need clutching changes, the tires are heavier, so it will make it slower, they are harder to turn!

I'm not knocking the bigger tires, but just be aware of these things before you pull the trigger on them!

The big tires look awesome, but I was not willing to have all the drawbacks from them.

I have a 2013 outlander 800 xt and i went with 28"x10x12 and 28x12x12 Zillas on my bike. These are not much heavier then the stockers and don't rob power. I am still running stock clutching at moment and this thing wheelies and handles them like they are stock ones still. I have ran many tires from mega mayhems, to silverbacks and laws. I plan on running a clutch kit like a Dalton or Qsc for Hardcore mudding but the weight of these tires i wouldn't be worried one bit in a 28" and they do measure smaller by about a inch. I have ran 28"x12" rim, 28"x14" rim and also 30" Zillas and like i said your bike will handle these tires with ease. Good luck on your purchase and if you have any further questions shoot me a pm.

X2 to what Walleye said.

Zillas are very light. 28/10/12 are only 26 pounds and 28/12/12 are 27.6 pounds. Keep in mind that they do run almost an inch shorter than the stated size. I have them on my Grizzly 700 and my wife's Grizzly 550. They both turned them just fine. Only a slight decrease in power when I switched to them from stock. You have twice the HP on tap and are trying to decide between stock size or an inch bigger and about the same weight as stock. You will not NEED any clutch mods.

Many thanks to all for your replies.

The ideal for me was to buy Maxxis Zilla 28x12x14, but don't exist in the market, then I have these two options I mentioned.

My intention is to occupy in mud, but also in town (asphalt) and the Maxxis Zilla are perfect, but I have to find the ideal measures.

Therefore, I must sacrifice height or width. By default my Can-Am has 26x8x12 and 26x10x12.
I want more height and width, but proportionally and as there not exist 28x12x14, I need choose one of the two options.

I hope to explain well.

Thaaaaanks!

And....
Can I put four tires of the same size?

For example:
4 Zillas 30x11x14 on wheels 14x6 or 14x7.5


Thanks!!

Yes, you can go with all the same size skinny or wide. Just make sure you use the same height of tire all the way around.

Depends on if you go with skinny or wide tires. Use the 6" if you go with a skinny tire or the 7.5 for the wide tires (assuming you are going with the 30" Zillas.) Keep in mind that the shorter tires on 14" wheels will have a very short sidewall.

Perfect, but can I put wheels 14x7.5 on front? Any problem?
