Anyone running 28" Blackwater evo's?

Hi all, Is anybody running 28x9x14 & 28x11x14 Blackwater evolutions on aftermarket rims? The rims are 14x7 with a 5+2 offset.
I have ordered the tires, rims and arched a-arms, however i'm not going to be able to get the a-arms installed and alignment done anytime soon.
Its on a 2018 2 seater. I'm wondering if i'm going to have any clearance/ rubbing issues with the tires till I can get the a-arms done.

The Blackwaters run on the smaller side so I would think it would be fine. I put a set of 27's on my dad's Ranger and compared them to the factory 26" Bighorns that came on mine and they were identical in height, so would expect the 28" Blackwaters to be the same as most other 27's.

My 2013 T4 has 28x10x14 blackwaters all around on STI wheels. With a 2Ē lift they didnít rub until I had the recall for the floorboards done. After the recall work I had to grind away some of the new plate. It will just barely rub now if the wheel is a full lock and thereís a lot of weight on the front tire. Iíll probably need new tires after hunting season. If they were new I donít think they would fit without some more work with the grinder and dead blow hammer.

I now have the Super ATV arched a-arms and 2" lift also. The Blackwaters have done everything I expected them to, they are good on trails and not to bad in the mud, but I try to avoid the mud these days anyway.
Thanks for the input guys.

Which lift are you using with the arms? The tires were on the machine when I bought it and Iíve been perfectly happy with them. I donít get into deep mud if I can help it but for eastern mountain trails and muddy hill climbs theyíve been doing good.

Depends on which brand of arms you have. If they are SuperATV arms than only the SuperATV lift if the only bolt-in option. The Highlifter arms come with the options of either keeping stock height or a 2" lift.
