    you could run up to 27 with no rubbing.  i ran my 28 OLRs for one ride with outside shock mounts and suspension cranked all the way but was rough as crap so wouldnt recommend that.  with a lift you could run 28s but i would suggest forward a arms.  you could run up to 30s if you wanted and not increase axle angle.  ranger axles dont like any axle angle other than stock

    Please forgive me for the stupid questions I'm new to all this utv stuff.

    Can explain to me where/how you get axle angle and what's the bed way to eliminate it? I wanna run 30s (for the look, don't do a lot of mudding, mainly trail riding) but don't want to cause any issues. If I'm better off running 28s I go that route to eliminate any axles issues.

    Well the best way is to leave everything stock.  But if your looking at bigger tires trying to not lift the bike any will go the farthest to eliminate greater axle angles.  If you run forward a arms instead of a lift on a ranger you can fit bigger tires than you can with the lift and not increase angle angle over stock.
    Now if your mostly doing trail riding over mudding i would suggest doing 28s over 30s.  Lighter weighted tires will do nothing but help drive train compared to bigger tires and if your really not needing the extra GC for mud then to me 28s are the way to go.

    Alright I understand a little better now. The axle angle comes from the lift and not from the forward a-arms.

    Thank you for your help.
