i would say 27s, the only place it will rub probably is the rear tire on the stock black plastic piece, but it can be cut easily

I ran 27's on my stock rhino but they did rub on the black plastic . no worries they made their own room, and the natural trimming looked just fine when it was complete.

I run 28x11x14 Zillas on all fours.Crank your shocks all the way up.It rubs a little when you're gettin' down and dirty,but other than that it clears just fine.

28 skinnies should fit if you crank the shocks up. I wouldnt cut the rear plastic i would let the tire eat it like i did. Makes for a much cleaner fit.

It really depends on the brand of tire as some off-shore brands seem to have a shorter or longer tape measure than the rest of the world
As an example: 27" ITP's (XTR's, 589's, etc) will require rear lower panel trimming, 27" Zilla's or Mudbugs don't because they aren't a true 27" diameter.
Tire pressure, tire width, and riding conditions (hard pack causes more heat build-up in the tire versus cool running in mud) also affect the fitment of a particular tire.
So, find the tire you like and then ask here about that particular tire and the clearance issues with each size.
Hope this helps...

those tires will fit without trimming.i run 28x10x12 fronts and 28x12x12 rear itp mud lights.have stock suspension and shock set at mid position on springs. i run itp delta steel wheels and haven't had any rubbing problems.my tires are a little worn but replaced 1 front and 1 rear over the past year.the new tires cleared no problem. i don't think i can go any larger without modifications
