I was checking out the Interco tires. Was kinda looking at putting a set of of Super Swampers (27X12X12) on the rear @ 27.4" OD and Vampires (27X10X12) on the front @ 26.9" OD. Does anyone know if the 1/2" diameter difference will tear up the tranny or associated gearbox parts. I know in the mud, I'll be ok, but Hardpack hill climbing or rock crawling where there is no chance to spin, things might tend to bind???

Not quite sure you want to mix and match tire diameters. I will leave this to be answered by those who know more than me, however, it has been my understanding this is not a good idea.

If I am wrong, then I am about to learn something ;)

Thanks. The numbers that I put on there were the advertised OD from their webpage.. Has anyone ever checked some of the more used and liked tires (Mudlites, MTRs etc) to see how close they are to the advertised sizes? I have heard that if you run less air for traction purposes, you could lose as much as 2" of height. THe tire outfits are relying on the 7" (skinny) rims to get the tire heights.
