29's on the yxz?

after cutting 2 sidewalls on the bighorns I'm looking into an 8-ply tire. is anyone running larger tires than stock? I'm thinking 29's but don't want to give up too much low end power.

can you not get 8-plys in stock sizes?

Has anyone tried 30" Looking to up grade larger tire.
Not sure if this would put pressure on the clutch or have the clearance to do.
Any info would help

I'm running 28 tensors. They come in 28 or 30. I love them and believe they are far more robust than stock tires!

I can get 27's in 8ply, however I ride trails here at home (IL) creeks, rivers, log crossings. We normally make 2 trips a year to TN (Royal Blue, Brimstone, and Windrock) ....I was just looking for another 1.5" ground clearance since I'm buying 4 tires anyway and wanted to know how the stock gearing worked with a larger diameter tire.

I'm thinking we have the clearance, it's the clutch/gearing that I'm concerned about. 90% of my riding is on the trails and hills in 1st & 2nd gear with a Rekluse installed. I'm worried that the constant low speed on larger diameter tires will wear clutches faster (more slipping of the clutches by the Rekluse?) After a recent trip to TN and over 130 miles at Royal Blue and Brimstone on stock tires and Rekluse installed I'm thinking 1st gear will handle it just fine but was looking for anyone with real life experience on 29s or 30s with Rekluse on trails

Not to derail this discussion but what do you think of the rekluse so far? ?? does it affect the performance at all? .. negatively I mean..

I wouldn't say it has any negative affects because you still have use of the clutch if needed, unlike the original Rekluse that I've had experience with on dirt bikes. I would say it's more of an anti stall device for tight technical terrain. I wasn't given any instruction on operation of the clutch after Rekluse was installed (Rekluse paperwork is basically for install purposes only) Dealer installed. 1st ride with Rekluse was in the mountains of TN and it performed flawlessly. I still find myself using the clutch to shift out of habit and it's just a smoother shift...if your just cruising shifting without clutch is no problem but when I ripping on it I will hit the clutch, just something about meshing gears at 10,500 R's makes me nervous lol.
And to go even further off topic, I think I read that you ride in muddy conditions. Have you experienced any overheating issues? I did a radiator relocate this last weekend, I was collecting a lot of mud/dirt in the rad. and I am by no means a mud rider and avoid the deep stuff if possible but I'm not scared to give her ****...but not too much because I'm still waiting on my front bumper/winch mount
