So i bought my 2015 outlander 800xt about a month ago . since then I have only taken off the warning labels. And as of yesterday added 14" msa m20 kore wheels. And 27" interco reptiles. I'm undecided on if I like the look. Just wondering what you all think.

Nice looking wheel and tire combo; goes well with the bike colours. Those Rims are extremely nice. Do you know if they are 5+2 or 4+3 offset? Sometimes the box will say +10mm offset.
The more offset, the better the stability, less offset generally less stability but less chance on being hung up (arguable)

Let's face it Can Am's are the best looking quads out there!! Love the color looks tough!rims are sharp but not my choice for tires would love to see some big horns on there. I love the way the 12's out back and 9's up front look on mine. But it's all what you like, what kind of riding do u plan on doing?

Tires weren't my first choice. But they're much better looking in person than in pics. I use to be a heavy swamp rider. But I want to get away from it. So I'm setting the quad up to be a trail rider. But we have some heavy mud on some of the trails so I needed something that was capable of some pretty good mud running but not swamp worthy. But at the same time.i wanted well mannered at higher speeds. Going out riding today so I'll see how they do.

I think it looks really good, but I do think some dual Muzzy's would really finish it off nicely :th_smiliethumbsup:

What else did u plan on adding? I have been looking at those wheels, but I have to put tires on my truck so the stock have to stay on until I get extra cash.

Quad looks good, had you considered the extreme front bumper and mud guards? Or possibly remove the red can am stickers for a sticker free quad

I had MSAs 14" all around but went with an true bead lock wheel. With research, by having true beadlocks less chance of popping if hit a rock/root wrong way? I also not crazy about those tires. I have pitbull rockers on mine now. I do trail riding. Use to have GBC Spartacus and before GBC Dirtcommanders. I'm throwing a pic of them here just for show and tell.

Thank you everyone for the replies. While I'll admit I wasn't a fan of the tire. I went riding today and must admit looks can be deceiving. Tire did great I'm everything. Only struggling a bit in snow.. as for add ons. An exhaust and programmer and skids. Maybe clutch if needed. Maybe snorkels down the road. I didn't really lose a noticeable amount of power.

Agreed...love the color of the xt and love the rims but don't care for the tires....but that is what makes owning a can am great. You can make it your own and if people don't like it then oh well...

They're great on dry trail. Nice and smooth. Pavement they ride well even at high speed. I think this tire will do well. Looks cool in person. But I still miss having that mean looking tire. But can't have it all I suppose. Lol.. and I agree. To each his own. Was just interested on what ppl thought. I was undecided. But after seeing them perform I'm happy with them. They do sling a lot of mud though. No staying clean with this setup without fender flares.
