    Gentlemen I’m a big man with a 200 blaster. It does great on trails just gets caught in grooves cause it’s so low. What can I do

    the only thing that's going to lift the carrier/axle is bigger tires.
    time to make new trails around those ruts

    Depending on your riding style you can go to 22s but I wouldn't jump much on them

    /\ there's your problem, 20/18 is what racers use on a groomed mx track, not rough trails
    stock tire size is 21 front and rear (IIRC, it's been so long since anything stock for me) :)
    most of us run 20" rear, and I like 22 fronts, but 21's will help too
    22 rear's will be close to hitting the foot boards without an extended swingarm

    I had 22" mud lites on warrior wheels that sometimes rubbed. Luckily I could flip them and gain about an inch each side.
    I don't know if all warrior or any other sport quad have that kind of offset.
    Also there 7×23" front tires available, would likely have to flip those rims.
