Assuming you don't run 12" width tires all around. If you are planning on running smaller width in front you won't have an issue with the tie rods rubbing. But that can also depend on the brand/kind of tire you are running.

But other than that, you should be good to go.

Just try the same good long trail over and over on different size tires and see what you like .
Some people do really good at 10 inch ride height - i think its more about the ride height than the size of the tire and the relationship of the shocks to the tires and frame .
I do great in XC races on 25 inch tires and win races at 7and 1/4 ride height - thats lower than most tho .

Hey guys, I am ordering some SS112 wheels for the max and was wondering if a 5+2 offset front and back is what I need to run the 28" Zillas? I don't think the factory rims will work because there is only about a half inch of clearance between the tire and tie rod. It currently has 8" wide tires in the front. Thanks for your help!

12" or 14"

If 12" normally

5+2 front
and
2+5 rear

this might help you

I guess ive never understood the purpose of large dia tires on an atv except for maybe hard core mud races
Im riding the roughest GNCC tracks - like snowshoe and masontown where massive rocks are the norm and the absolutle largest tire you find is a 25 - with most people running 23s.
Those tracks have 2 and 3 foot tall rocks all through the track - ones you cannto get around - they make the cove look like a sandbox .
So what is the attraction and or purpose to bid Dia. tires on atvs ?

A little extra ground clearance in the mud.
