Plenty of experience with big tires in general from off-road to strip. When you start assuming everyone knows nothing just because you chose a 35 doesn’t mean we all agree. A 35 is heavy so you’re more prone to breaking, Loss on power, Not to mention your speedo is all jacked up. I can’t imagine what it will do to your fuel mileage since the KRX already sucks. You’re telling me 2” makes a world of a difference when in reality theirs more cons. If Kawasaki designed the KRX for 35’s don’t you think they would have put them on from the factory? Shoot I haven’t even got to the CVT tranny either, talk about roasting clutches and belts and I bet it’s a dog.
A 32 is a proper fitting tire. So much that the KM3 actually won the trophy Baja series this year because of the awesome tire deflection. It doesn’t add but MAYBE 2-3 pounds per tire.
Yes it was fun...now let us do what we want with our machines and stop pushing your 35 jumbo tires on us.
So you have zero experience with 35s on a KRX.
Nobody, and there is quite a few, to date has broken anything on a KRX with 35s that wasn't a manufacturer defect.
The loss on power is very very small and easily remedied.
My speedo is off by 3~mph confirmed by police radar at multiple speeds. Certainly not "all jacked up" and no big deal, IMO.
I have noticed no decrease in tank range. Seriously, fuel consumption is about the same.
2-3" increase in tire size makes a massive difference off road. I can't believe anyone would argue this. By your metric, all those guys on the trails with all kinds of rigs with big tires should just listen to you and run no more than 32s.
What makes you think a manufacturer would start with the right tires from the start?
You wont get to the CVT tranny or talk about roasted clutches and belts because NOBODY has roasted anything.
Basically everything you are stating is made up or way overblown.
I have nothing against the KM3. In fact my wife has a set of 39s on her JLUR(gasp, the manufacturer didn't put 39s on from factory) but it's ok, she has Fusion 4x4 fab 10s for axles held up with King coilovers(you see where I'm going?).
I am not pushing my "jumbo" 35's on anyone. I am simply defending the FACTS with experience. For some reason you're getting it twisted. I don't care if you or anyone else runs 35s, 28s, 54s, etc. but when you're out here spewing false information, all you're doing is stunting the sport and IMO, nobody should listen to you.
Here is my personal take on 32s vs 35s-
32s can probably do about 80% what 35s can but with much more abuse.
The power to the wheels between the 2 is a slight and I mean slight advantage to the 32s. This can be remedied easily.
Body roll is slightly increased with the 35s over the 32s provided same tire(tread pattern) is compared. This can be tuned away. The average rider/driver wont be able to tell the difference between the 2.
35s give more ground clearance.
35s make all ruts, holes, dips, etc, smaller thus making the terrain/path easier.
35s will rock crawl MUCH better.
35s being larger tires add to the plushness of the suspension.
32s can break things just as good as 35s. This is a weight factor coupled with driving style. The KRX specifically is up to the task for 35s with all components. I trust the KRX over my X3RR and XP Pro in terms of being able to take abuse.
I have noticed zero negatives with my machine and 35s. If I were to do it all over again, I would get 35s again and I will when these wear out. Money is not an issue so I am not emotionally attached to any of my purchases.
Edited to add- If I break anything or anything goes wrong I will be sharing that with this forum, undoubtedly.
