Default ATV tire size question

Hi folks,

Trying to buy some new tires for my ATV, but not very knowledgeable on tires/wheels. Trying to save extra money and use the stock wheels/rims and just buy new tires...

That said, currently dimensions are 26x8-14 (front) and 26x10-14 (rear). I read online that I could get away with one inch larger for both tire diameter and width without having fitment issues, but I wasn't clear if that meant I have to buy bigger wheels for the tire, or if that meant I could put the larger tire on the existing wheel? In other words, will 27x9-14's and 27x11-14's fit my current wheels/rims, or do I have to buy bigger rims to fit the bigger tires?

Thanks.

I went up one size on my stock wheels(could have went up 2 sizes) but, you may want to research in the manufacturer forum to make sure. Shouldn't be an issue with tire fitting on the wheel, but there may be other clearance issues.

The short answer is those tires should mount on your current wheels. They are 14" tires, and your wheels are 14".

Thanks. I knew I was okay from a wheel diameter, but my concern was the width since they are an inch wider.

I went 2" up in height and width on the front of my ATV, you should be fine.

You will be ok. One inch taller and one inch wider. Just did that on mine.

Frankly, I didn't pay much attention to the tire weights, they weren't a huge consideration for me. But when doing my research and comparing them to other tires, they seemed to be middle of the road when it came to weights. These are the ITP mega mayhems.
