    Hello Ives and welcome to the forum!

    You can change the width of the front tires with no problem, just don't go with a larger diameter unless you change the rear tires to match. If you do go wider on the front, you will have to buy rims with a different offset or else use spacers so the tires don't rub on the tie rod ends. I think the front rims for a Polaris Ranger have the right offset to clear everything.

    AKmud,

    Did you do any clutch work on the primary or secondary?

    I haven't done any clutch work yet, but I am looking at the Heelclicker kit to get some low end torque back. I did notice a little difference in low end but not bad.

    AKmud,

    After putting 589's on, I installed a new springs and weights. Lost a few mph on the top end, but the bottom end and midrange is real good. Also installed a roller secondary.
