I'm thinking of running 26x9x12 on all 4 corners of my KQ 500. Yall think the 9" up front will be ok with the width, dont want too much un necessary stress on parts.
Thanks.

A 9” wide tire in the front is fine. Anything wider and you may encounter interference issues within the steering knuckle. As for you going with 26” tires all around. Are your current set of tires different sizes front to back..? Like 25x10-12 Rear, and 24x8-12 Front..? If so, I would keep the offset sizes as changing to 26” all around may cause your 4wd system to bind. But if your current set of tires is 25” all around, then your good to go to 26” on all four corners.

I've actually got 27x9x12 MudLites on the front and 27x11x12 MudLites on the rear. Just want to got down to a 26 for the wear and tear and re gain a lil performance.

Gotcha. So yeah, I’d recommend no wider then a 9” wide tire in the front. And you should be all set with 26” tires.
