I'm trying to decide what size tires to run up front I have 6.5 wide wheels and was wondering if I should go with a 6 or 6.5 wide tire also if I go with a 7 inch wide rear wheel should I run the 6.5 or 7.5 tire ?? Any input is greatly apriciated.

13X6.50X6 is the most common tire size used.

On my Sportsman and Mod-XR I prefer 13x5.00-6 on 6x6 rims for my fronts. They are lighter, lower and provide all the traction I need on them. It also "widens" your front stance. Plus they simply look better.

13x6.00-6 are hard to find but will fit well. 13x6.5 will also but most use 6x7 or 7.25 for the 13x6.50.

The biggest advantage is weight. An old drag racing formula is every pound taken off the reciprocating weight (ie: wheels, tires, rotors, etc.) is equivalent to 7 pounds off the chassis.
