Smile Quick tire question

I am ready to buy new rims and tires. My question is will 28x10x12 front and 28x12x12 rear fit on my 09 Teryx Sport without a lift kit and rubbing issues?

Secondly which rim do you prefer?
ITP ss312's or Motosport Alloys black Torks?

Thanks Jeff

I am pretty sure they will fit, I am running 27x9-14 fronts & 27x11-14 rears and I know I could put on a 28" and will clear. The 12" rims are 7" wide front and rear, the 14" are staggered - 6" front / 8" rear. I don't know if this will make it rub on the front, the rears should be fine. I was going to go with 28" on mine originally but wanted the radial XTR's so bought 27's. They clear fine front and rear even in the rough stuff! Good luck!
The rims look good to, I didn't know they had that rim out, I bought the SS212 in chrome.

Thanks Junior, I am going to order the 28's. I'll let you how they turn out. I found the best deal at ATV Tires, ATV Tire Wheel Kits, Sport Wheels, Street Tires, Sand Paddles: Moto X Mall.

I need some information on wheels. How much difference in width will a "wide trake" (-47mm) set up vs std off set wheels? Will this significantly change the steering effort or put too much stress om a stock front end? Just bought a cage and seat package. Wheels and tires are next then looking at power steering.
Thanks

I don't really understand what you mean by ' wide track '? Are you just using wheel spacers or is it a long travel kit, if you are spacing it then yes you put more stress on the front end because the leverage increases between the tire and your ball joints (you are moving your wheel out but not the pivot point), it will make your steering a little harder and tends to pull a little more, kind of like oversteering.
As for the -47 mm offset, this means you are moving your wheel out, sounds like a 1 3/4" spacer.
Hope this helps or makes sense!
