I had the Dirt Commanders on my RZR 900s which I just sold and really liked those tires. I will run the stock tire until they need replaced and then maybe go a little bigger for better ground clearance. But I would probably stick with the Dirt Commanders if I can get them in a bigger size

Actually thought the Deluxe version would get it's own set of tires as it is the top trim. A set of Dirt Commander as stock is fine and I don't really see a need for a new set of tires until it wears out or if you decide to tide the General into some deep mud. Think there's special tires for that situation.

Was actually looking at a set of Kenda Bear Claw Radial Tire (8 Ply) and it's supposed to be self cleaning. But that's only if I get the base model. Dirt Commanders are great as stock tires in the other 2 models so I don't see a need to change them out.

People will undoubtedly change tires and wheels to be unique or to serve a specific purpose but overall I think the dirt commanders are a good tire for all around use. Personally, I would plan for a 2-3" lift and 29-30" tires, mostly just for the look.

Just installed 30"MTC tires on 14"M12 Diesel wheels. The fit seems good.
What is the clearance in the wheel well like and what about the ride height? I'm guessing that it should be around 13 1/12" now. I was looking to get some 29" Bighorns and maybe a set of bead locks. I was also looking to get a 2"-3" lift when Racertech comes out with one ,but take some of the shock preload out to soften the ride and have at least 14" of clearance.

Tire and Wheel fit

Dealer put on some Pro Armor Crawler XG's 30-10-14's
on MSA F2 wheels they had mounted up for another project to check the fit for my new General. The 30's seem to have plenty of clearance. I am not sold on the XG's completely and am researching tire and wheels I want to go with before I pick it up this week. Anyone seen or tried a set of Tensor Regulators or Motohammers on for fit yet? Curious if the possible wider stance of the Tensor will be a problem up front or if the stance is similar to the XG's pictured.

Not bad wheel/tire fitment at all, seems like even with suspension movement you'll still be in the clear, plus they look great, can't beat that beefed up look it gives the general.

Great looking General and welcome to the forum! Are you looking at the largest size for the Tensor Regulator (30x10R15)?
Think we'll try 30x10x14 don't think I will go 15" right now., probably going to be installing some on for fit Fri at the Dealership if they come in....
Hopefully if I like the setup I can get it home this weekend now.


Think I am going with the MSA M26 Vibe Dark Tint wheels, I really want the M21 Beadlocks but can't justify the cost for the use I will do.

Im a big fan of same size tires all the way around - makes rotating real nice and seriously prolongs tire life. I had 28X10X14 on my Commanders and they were perfect.


The stock tires I think are fine but if/when I get a General ill be doing the same as I did on the Commander.

I'm a fan of the same size all around myself.

I'm upgrading to 28x10x14 as well on my General.

What psi are you running with?

On my Commanders I run 9 psi in the rear and 8 psi front. That was adjusted at 10,000 feet where we ride. Gave it a great ride but not too soft. MOTO MTC tires on MSA M20 CORE Wheels.

Hi guys. I am about to pick up my general, and was wondering if any of you think the 30" tires will clear using the stock rims?
Thanks.
