Wheel and tire combos for 2011 550 Artic Cat

I have a 2011 arctic cat 550 ATV. I’m looking for mud tires and alloy wheels . What are the largest tires and rims I can put on this unit? I don’t want to go to large because it would strain the drive system.

These would be used for mudding and soft dirt.

Any info would be appreciated.

I’ve included the stock tire sizes as well.

Also, where can I buy brake rotors and pads?

Thank You

Muxster

Ps- I love this ATV’s performance

I’m wondering about some 14 inch wheels would they be too big or too much of a strain on the drivetrain?

If itís soft soupy mud with no bottom=Outlaw originals
If it has a hard bottom Gorillas will work good.

You will be fine with 14" rims. More important, is the overall tire diameter. If stock tire size is 25", you should be fine with 28" diameter. On my 700Diesel, I have 28" Outlaw MST's, they do everything great, but where I ride, if you go into mud, you could suddenly find it very deep! You can also do some clutch work, if you find the bigger tires are dogging her down too much.

I’m going to look into the outlaw tires. That’s great to know discount tires has the goods.

Where do I find brake rotors and pads for my 550?

Thank you
