I have what I hope is a simple question. I bought a 2016 Kodiak EPS SE and would like better tires.

My question is do I use the stock SE aluminum wheels (are the good or soft and flimsy?) and put a taller 25" like a bighorn original on or will a 26" fit on stock wheels or are the stock wheels garbage and should I just buy 26" on a new wheel (does 26" fit without a lift kit or spacers?).

If I should buy a 26" bighorn or similar tire that runs large and fits without a lift or spacers, what wheelnl do you recommend? I am looking for a light yet strong aluminum wheel to keep unsprung weight down and offset the heavier tires.

So do I keep the stock wheels and put a taller 25 on, keep the stock wheels and put a 26 on if it fits or so I get new wheels with a 26 if it fits.

Thanks

just depends what you want. if the rims are 12in then most tires will fit that go on a 12 inche rim. me personally i would keep them wheels and tires mounted and just buy a new set of wheels and tires just so i have to sets if something happened and you had to wait on a tire you got a spare set

Well I called discount tire and rockymountain and they both said the stock wheel is good and there is not need to buy an aftermarket one. I ordered a set of Bearclaw HTR in 26-9-12, 26-11-12.

Just need to figure clutching out now.

A lot of ppl put the clutch weights from a grizzly in the kodiak and shim the primary clutch out. Im still waiting on the clutch weights to come in

where did you order the clutch weights from? ive been looking for a set without luck. you can just install the weights w/o the shim right?
