Ordered new tires (zillas) the other day and finally got the chance to mount them up.
2019 pioneer deluxe on stock deluxe wheels. 27x9’s our front 27x11s out back.
Fitment is great fronts stick out a smidge past the fender. No power loss to report power steering handles them just fine.
Also on stock suspension probably raised it up a .5-1”. Wanted to post because I haven’t seen this setup discussed much. Looks good to me!

the load rating on zillas makes it a quad designed tire. less than 500 means you cant haul much with those. I know a few people who liked those for quads but there are better utv tires with the load ratrings to haul the thousand lbs they are capable of

at least they were pretty decent, you could actually use them in a lot of the country. unlike the golf cart tires on the 500 and all the atv tires ive had would get stuck in my yard in the spring let alone on the trail. think can am is the only one that puts a decent tire on 26 itps or carlile but you have to pay the few grand extra for the xt, no thanks

I run them no problem. Gotta be tougher than the stock tires...

I can see Firebirds point . Bit for recreational use their fine . Mine are not heavy weight rated either and their fine but mines a play toy not a work machine plus spread the weight out over 4 tires they not carrying that much weight.

Well I have had 1000 pounds plus in mine a few times and the tires have been fine... I guess looking at numbers maybe they aren’t the best.. But what I’m saying is, if the 3 ply or whatever stock tires can handle it, the 6 ply zillas will do it better.
I see now stocks are 4 ply...

the ply doesnt really matter, just a gimick to sell to make it sound tough, really the tread thickness and hardness is what really matters and why some 6 ply tires last thousands of miles in gravel and others that are 8 ply and only last half as long. the ones rated for a few hundred lbs just arent going to last as long under that load, probably start splitting at the bars first

Reckon that’s why swamp lites split so bad... Makes sense though, as the stock tires are like round rocks... Hard rubber. No secret, zillas are SOFT...

good for some things, soft tires are good in mud and ruts they conform good, down side is always life
Yeah... One thing though is I and friends have ran them since they have come out, and I have never seen a worn out zilla... Or a zilla with splits. I guess it stretches more than the swamplite. I have seen many worn out and split swamplites around here. Same type of riding. Same group of people... We don’t have forest roads or ohv trails with lots of gravel roads... But my wife and kids do ride on asphalt everyday. Heck tires last me longer than I keep and atv or sxs... LOL. One guy on here did put zillas on his 1000-5, and said it felt like he was riding on four marshmallows. I do believe that...

Just looked and zillas are rated for the same weight as bighorn 2.0s... And not far off bighorn originals...And carnivores... strange...

Tires are running great, pull good and don't seem to have any power loss. They also don't cover you in mud with the factory wheels which is a plus.
Good to hear, sounds like you found the right combination for your rig.:)

I just put Bighorn's on my 700-4. I ripped up a sidewall on one of the factory (junk!) front tires. I had to stay with 25's so it fits in my garage at camp. Drives like riding on a cloud!
