I have 30 inch zillas on my 07 660. I have a two inch lift but dont really think my lift gave me a true 2 inches. I think you will be fine.

also is it ok to put the same size width wise in the front as the back??
I thought about using all the same size when I need need tires...I'm gonna get a spare front tire/wheel to mount on the machine...I have 27" 14s ITP XTRs on my 07 660...not a problem with stock suspension...

There are much better tires out there than the crappy ML, I had them and the only thing they were good for was collecting holes.

Zilla's, Mudbugs, GBC dirt devil II's

I have 27" Zilla's on one machine and 27" Mud bugs on another. IMO I wouldn't go larger than a 27" tall tire.

And as for the same width all around, nope,.. I wouldn't go wider than a 10" on the front,.. or too hard to turn.

The Mudlites run short and puncture easy... I accumualted about 45 plugs in less than 1,300 miles. They are also very hard to turn and the sidewalls are paper thin... They are pretty good in the mud but I went with 27" Bighorns and never looked back... The Mudbug is also a better tire than the Mudlites in my experience.. The MLs are worth the $150 you paid IMO however.

tires

I just put 28x12x12 on the rear and 28x10x12 on mine and had a 2 in lift on it. I did not like the Super ATV 2 in lift so I took it off. Tires do just fine. I have the 2 in factory spacers on the rear and 1 1/2 on the front.

are you guys talking about the mud lite xtr's that you are plugging? i would think the radial mud lite would be much tougher. big horns would be my choice if i lived in the desert, but i have my doubts on how well they do in the mud.

Yeah, I was looking at buying a new rhino and the dealer wanted to put Big Horns on it. Where I hunt/ride it's muddy. No rocks but there are Ironwood trees (I think that's what they're called....huge thorns like nails). A buddy of mine has ML's on his ATV. Never had a flat and gets good performance in the mud out of the tires. We have gumbo mud so you need something that will clean out easily. I bought a used Rhino with the ITP Terra Cross tires on it. They do ok as long as in 4wd, but slick over pretty quickly. Probably a good all around tire though. I think ML's would work better than the Big Horns or Terra Cross where I ride.

I'm interested in duplicating your wheels/tires and lift kit. Can you give me leads on where you purchased the stuff to do these mods?
