A friend is having alot of trouble with his stock tires and leaks. I suggested getting some Mud Lites on his stock rims to solve this problem. Is the problem with the stockers the tires or the rims or both? If he puts Mud Lites on his stock rims will this stop all his leaks around the rims? Is 26" too much for a 400 auto? It is a 2005.

my question exactly! Most everyone said that 26" isn't too big for the 400 (mines a 1999 manual) so i think that i am going with 26x10x12 all around (in the XL of course haha) but maybe you should stick to 26x8x12 front and 26x10x12 rear so youi don't burn up belts... I dunno...

Hope that helped a little at least...

I run the 25" bighorns 8x12 10x12 on my 400. They measure like most companies 26" tires. I had no issue in the snow or in the little bit of mud we did find. You will notice the most problems if you get stuck and have to try and back up due to the really bad gearing AC selected for reverse. I lost 4-5 mph on the top end because of the new tires, but it was made up easily in the traction, steering and handling department.

Good luck.
