28-11-12s on 12x6s ?

Ok so I'm working on a little bit of a crazy build an I'm trying to figure out what tires to use . The wheels I'm using are stock outlander 500 fronts (12x6) , my first plan was 30-10-12 silverbacks on all 3 corners but now I'm pondering the idea of 28-11-12 mega mayhems . I've seen some tires balooned out on super narrow rims but what problems would even be possible by mounting an 11 inch wide tire on a 6 wide rim ?

    Consider 27x9.50x12 or 28x9.50x12 Outlaws on your 12x6 rims. I've sold that setup many times over years

    I'm thinking 10 wides on the 12x6s . I'm trying to get as much side bite as possible because the machines primarily going to be for swamp riding in deep mud/water

    I've always heard silverbacks run a little shorter than advertised thats why I was thinking 30s if I went with that brand tire . The outlaw 1s kinda have my attention too and was thinking 29.5-10-12s in those . I'm gonna get it lifted before I make any decisions so I've got time to figure it out I guess.

    The reason I was suggesting the 27 or 28 was you have a 500CC unit. If you want a bigger tire, our 29.5x10x12 Outlaw will outperform the Silverback in the mud while being lighter as well as riding smoother. Give me a call when you get ready and I will be happy to help you.

    How do you plan to get your 200 to spin the tires quick enough to clean out the mud ? Another good question would be how well will your ATC even turn big tires in deep, thick mud ?

    Gearing . 75t rear sprocket and the trike has low range I'm copying a build thats already been done search " atc 200 on 30s " on youtube . Surprising how well the 200 turns 30 inch silverbacks .

    Sorry, never sold any or personally seen any in action. So no thoughts on performance. Plus, I am not much on opinions. I am a fact based tire guy. Maybe someone else can help on that tire based on factual knowledge.
