Does anyone have any first hand knowledge about*Interco Swamp Lite 26x9-12 and 26x10-12 ATV Tires? I want to run these on my 2016 Kodiak 700 in place of the 25 inch Maxis stock tires. I don't think clearance will be a issue, but I will be putting on a 2 inch lift at the same time, also 1 inch wheel spacers. Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

ive read some pretty good reviews about those tires, cant speak from experience but I know people like them. From what ive read though they seem to be a little less effective in wet terrain like rocks or deeper mud. also, due to their design if you're going to ridding on any hardpack whether its to or from your normal riding areas i think they will wear down faster. I personally like and can vouch for the ITP Mudlite XTR tires. they are radials as well so you get a better feel on hardpack. clearance wouldn't be an issue for you, and i wouldn't go above 26s unless you were planning on putting in a clutch kit.

Never tried them but I have read in reviews that it doesn't do so well when climbing over wet logs. Are you going to be riding in mud only with them?

What's the largest tires you can go without adding lift or spacers on 2016 ? I'm thinking about 26×10 front and 26x12 rear in ITP mud lite. I run these sizes on my 2003 kodiak with no problems. Also...best place to buy wheel and tire kits? Thanks! New here. Hoping to pick up new ride this weekend :)

I think 26 is the largest you can go on the stock clutch so you should be fine.
Something similar was discussed here: http://www.kodiakowners.com/forum/466-kodiak-700-tires-wheels/1929-max-tire-size-stock-clutch.html

I hate to sound like the newbie but I rather ask them buy the wrong things. I have the base model Kodiak 700 and want bigger wheels and tires. I mess around the yard and once in awhile go with my friends trail riding. Rock, dirt, streams and some mud of course, but not hardcore into any of the above. I don't want to mess around with the clutch and was wandering anyone's best setup for me? Does anyone have any pics with the new wheels and tires? My friend told me to go with 26 ITP wheels and 26x8 in front and 26x10 in rear. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks
