Who here is running skinny tires (9's or what ever) on all 4 corners? I have thought about it to save some weight. Are there any benefits running skinnies? Im probably gonna order some tires soon and i just wanted to see what everyone was running and the benefits and drawbacks

I have 9's all the way around. Handles just fine and I haven't noticed anything bad. It saves you a few $$ and you can swap the tires to front or rear.

Im looking at staying at 26" tires with 9's and the thing that im really wondering about is will the back end have no traction? I want it to spin up some but i dont want to loose so much traction that its just a nightmare and it always has to be in 4wd.

I have 28" 9 wide mtc's all the way around. No issues. Little less traction but if you not heavy mud riding, I'd stay with skinnys. I do see where the wides help in deep mud. They will pull harder. But if you comfortable with skinnys and like to power slide, have fun.

I ran skinnies on my RZR and when I buy new tires that will be the setup I go with. As mentioned, you can slide easier if thats your thing but for normal trail riding, rocks, hills, water and all that I noticed no drawbacks. What tires are you looking at?

skinnys on the back of the rhino will probly help with handling and make cornering better since the rear diff is full time locked.. I should have bought 9s all the way around on mine... If i ever buy another set for the rhino thats what i will do

I have 26x9x12 Bighorn OG on my Rhino. I like it. It's fun. Coming from stock tires, it'll be way more traction than you are used to, even with all "skinny" tires. The stock tires are incredibly tiny. The rear 25x10 are no fatter than an aftermarket 9" tire.

Sometimes I regret doing the all skinny tires, like when I did my motor build. Once I got some good power, it's more challenging to hook up. If I race, I gotta race in 4WD High because it just spins too much out of the hole.

But for trail riding, the 26x9 is a hard combo to beat. It handles well, it even can do almost any mud on a normal trail ride (unless you go to ATV mud parks, lol). But even still, I ride a lot in the sandy river with few problems, even in 2WD.

I recommend the all skinny combo.

I tried the 9x26 pizza cutters on all fours, hated it.

9 in the front and 11 in the rear works very well for me.
