Running 11" tires all around

Hello new member here. I have a 14 viking eps and currently have a set of 28x10x12 Silverbacks on Sti 5+2 wheels. Wanting to swap to a better riding tire. Thinking about a set of Sti Outback XT 30x11x14 all around. Will I have any issues with the 11 all around?

I don't think you will have a problem with 11s all around, I know some folks here have 12s all around and like it. I would be more concerned about the weight of 30 " Outbacks if you are running the stock clutch.

Any other suggestions on a trail tire that can also handle mud. I'm not a real big fan of the zillas.

What about 28x9.5x14 radial outlaws? They are only listed as 4 lbs. heavier than my silverbacks at 38 lbs. each.

If you don't like the Zillas, what about ITP Mud Lites or Swamp Lites? They will come in around 10 pounds lighter each than the silverbacks.

I think when the time comes for new tires for me, I narrowed down to radial reptiles.

I have the mega mayhem in 28in and i like them alot. Not the best at handling on hard packed trails over 25mph but they sure do dig in the mud and soft terrain. Theyll also last a really long time. My buddy has 800 miles on his and they are nowhere near worn down yet. If you dont ride in alot of mud my vote would be for the outback xt in 28in. Or wait for the outback xlt and go with 30's. Either way if you go 28in or bigger with a mud tire id recommend getting a jbs sheeve and slug kit

I also really like the Terminators, almost put a skinny/wide set of 28's on my Viking.
