    Thanks. Im setting 2" lower in the front now, i want to get my front up at least 2"(with the option of being able to go higher) because im rubbing with wheel and tire set up even after lots of trimming. figured i wld go 2" in the back, i dont want to look nose high plus it will help out when pulling sidexside....figured with the added weight of the bull bar i may need to go with the 885s. Im open to all suggestions help and knowledge is always appreciated..

    Do you have any lift or wheel spacers?
    I have 18X9" BBS RW wheels and need new tires and I really like your set up. Considering something similar. I like how wide your tires are!
    I believe I read somewhere that you mentioned having to do some considerable fender trimming. Was it due to the Width?
    I was considering 265/65R18's but then I saw your set up and got excited about the 285/60r18 which is roughly the same diameter but an inch wider, which i'm a huge fan of.
    Would you suggest going with this wider tire or would you suggest sticking with the smaller width to refrain from hacking fenders?

    sry for responding so late......i dont have any kind of lift yet nor do i have wheels spacers ( those things scare me after one broke on my RZR and the wheel flew off)!!!!!! ... and yes i had to do some trimming under the front fenders. if u will go into my gallery u will find a few pics of what i had to cut and trim..... myself i like the wider tire , it just looks more beefy, but it also keeps it dirty
