Default Tire suggestions for Rancher 350 (2001)

Hi,
any tire suggestions for a 2001(?) rancher 350? A few things i'm considering is that its a smaller engine so want to try and stay close to stock tire size, and dont want to go with too heavy of a tire which i think will kill performance. Also i think this model may have the 11 inch rims? Its a 2x4 so need something decent to grip with - mostly rocky trail riding, a little mud but nothing too serious.

Thanks

I would buy a '06-'09 Foreman/Rubicon oem set of wheels.. take-offs from a dealer on e.bay they're 1" more than stock and a excellent long wearing tire thats not so heavy.

Jeff that is a good atv, with good gearing and power for its size. I have a friend with one that has 26" 589's and it does great. I would not go with anything over a 26" though. Hope this helps.

Jeffbu, what ever you get make sure they are a 6 ply tire. The stockers are like 3, or 4 ply. The rocks puts a hurten tires. If it was me I would look in a set Terracross R/T, or a set of Maxxis Big Horn Radial. Both will get you through the little mud holes, but they will excel on a rocky terrain. Hope this helps man.
