I know the 35 inch tire thing has been beat to death but I just got these installed today and wow what a difference. It’s was a workout doing them at home myself

Also installed rcor weights and a new belt.

Just test on dirt roads to to check things out and doesn’t seem like there going to run anywhere. Does anyone have any issues with the 370’s rubbing?

I literally just done the same thing myself and I ended up having some problems with mine rubbing. However I wasn't running factory wheels so my offset actually made things worse. I ended up getting a set of forward a-arms and it shifted the wheels farther to the front and left me with wood to clear the fenders.

I run the same setup you do and have never had any rubbing issues. That is also with the front swaybar disconnected and really working the suspension. The only thing to be aware of is that they do pick up rocks. I did have left tire rear deposit a rock between the left rear swingarm and the CV boot. It cost me a CV boot, so now I occasionally check that area and the engine pan area when I stop. I also check them for rocks when I load up to go home. I do not want to end up busting someones windshield. I have found a few.

Do you have Rock Knocker flaps?
I have not had issues with this fix.

They would not have done any good. Mine was probably a one off where some how the rear tire picked up a tennis ball sized rock, threw it off at the top, it somehow bounced off the shock just right, and ended in the space behind the rear trailing arm, on top of the front lower link. It sat there long enough to wear through the CV boot. I have also found a couple of baseball sized rocks, among others stuck in the tire lugs after loading it on the trailer.I kept the rock as a souvenir and reminder.

I'm getting ready to install my 35's this week, do the rcor weights help that much with 35's? Anyone try 35s without the weights and then add them?
It depends on what you mean by help much. The stock setup is perfectly fine with 35's. If you want more acceleration, are bogging in heavy mud, are towing, or haul a lot of weight, then you may want lighter weights. That would keep the revs higher. Other than that it is more rider preference. The Teryx is a very capable machine that is tunable to rider preference and style. Personally I like a quieter ride at slightly lower rpm, therefore I run stock weights and no primary spring and have been doing so for over 1200 miles. I can cruise at 30mph at 4200rpm. I also do a lot of rock crawling, does having no primary spring hurt? I would argue that is does not. Some may chastise me, but there are a few of the members that have ridden with me and can testify that I will climb anything they will with little effort. Just my preference! If I were desert riding it would be a different setup. That being said, I would suggest installing the tires, see what you think, figure out what it is you want to do, and then ask the question "what will help with what I want to accomplish". You will get a lot of recommendations.

Mine snatched the right Kawasaki rubber flap extension on a hard left under almost full compression. It ended up damaging the Kawasaki extended fender. Now this happened hundreds of miles after the 35’s so it’s one of those type things. Yours are different but that’s first thing I thought of.

I went over 1500 miles on the stock setup without any issues. Really depends on how you ride.

RCOR weights are designed to bring some power back after adding larger tires. The weights will increase or decrease RPM depending on how you set them up. We are having a Black Friday sale on them starting today $344.99 a set shipped.

I just put 35" Roxxzillas on mine. In 200 miles I think they rubbed once for sure and maybe twice. They are a little shorter then the 370's at 34 tall so I think 370's will touch every now and then, but nothing to worry about. I also run my suspension a little lower than most. I have a friend that runs 35 370's but they are aftermarket wheels. He's never mentioned them rubbing.

So far, so good. I'll need to get them somewhere familiar to make a call but they really hooked well in the slimey mud on top hard pack we ran. We ran in the rain from Thursday night until Saturday night when it switched to snow. I really wasn't expecting them to do well in slop but they surprised me. No real wear to speak of other then the tread blocks rounding on the leading edge in the rear. Looking like 1500-2000 miles shouldn't be hard to get out them. HMT ruined Rockhouse. The whole thing has been dozed to what amounts to dirt roads. Ran 32 up hill, in the rain, after dark with 8 machines and never even slowed down for it.


Good to see you posting.
Thanks.

I'm starting to get everything back to normal. I still have very little free time at home and what I do her pup demands most of it. With it getting dark early and being cold I'm starting have a little time to get online and work on some stuff. We could start the probate stuff about two weeks ago so hopefully there is an end in sight.

I had decent amount of trips planned for this year and made all them but did very little local stuff. WV twice, KY twice and PA once. Local stuff maybe 3 or 4 times. Hunting will have most the riding hemmed up until Feb now. I'm hoping to get some bushings out real soon and I'm pretty much out of all the popular shiftgate colors.

Did you have to go with longer beadlock bolts?
I had them in case I needed to use them to get the rings started but I was able to use the factory bolts and get them all started by hand. Then the fin process of of tightening them a little at a time. After that 13lbs and then 41 lbs. all by hand didn’t want to chance stripping one
