    How big a tire?

    On the XUV590E body style with a 2 inch front lift, how big a tire can you mount on it?

    Itís not necessarily how big, it is how the power train will handle it?

    when ever you go to a bigger tire you are changing the gear ratio I went from27 inch to 28 for a little more ground clearance it changed it a little but was acceptable , I don't know if john deere offers different gear ratios for sale if they do it will be expensive , so like I say I wouldn't go to much bigger then one size ,I did this on my Tacoma 4x4 pickup going from stock gears in the 350 ratio range to 488 and tire change from 28x14 inch to 33x14 this worked great but cost me and arm and a leg around 2000.bucks with Detroit lockers, so it can be done but is very pricey

    thanks brad for the info I didn't think they would offer gear changes I know a few guys with different make utvs that went up3 to4 tire sizes and complained that it didn't have the power ,they didn't understand how ratio and tire size changes things if jd decides to offer different ratios we will be set , while ive got you here do you know if jd is planning on letting us acess computer info with code readers or scanners, I have a 3000 dollar snapon scanner but have no way to read fault codes in my gator , if you have any info on this could you let me know ? what does jd use to read codes?

    I believe JD uses a proprietary tool, it may be called Service Advisor?

    I doubt JD will ever allow public use of their reader
