Hello, I'm new to the forum so please bear with me........ I have an 07' Yamaha Grizzly 660. I am looking into putting on Maxxis Bighorn tires in the 26x12 size or the 26x14 size and ITP C-7 rims. I have been compairing tire sizes and weights but haven't been able to find any statistics for rim weights. I have found that the 14 in. tires are lighter than the 12 in.. If the 14 in. rims aren't too much heavier than the 12 in. I will go with the 14 in. set up since the entire package will be lighter and take less power to operate. Plus handleing is supposed to be better. Does anyone out there have a 14 in. set up on there machine and if so how does it handle and have there been any problems?
Any help will be appreciated!!!

Gald to see you here on the site! I agree that the 14" looks awesome, my dad has an 07 Grizz 660 with 14" ss112's and the 27" XTR's and is SWEET! As for handling and performance, I say handling is a little better and ride is a little better with the radial, comapred to my mudlites. However, you will lose some of you bottom end power since you are going to a bigger wheel and tire, and it wieghs more. You can do some other mods and gain you power back if it is that big of an issue for ya! I say "GOPHER" the 14's you will be very happy!
