Knowing how much we all enjoy pictures, I thought I would share a few of my P4 after installing 28" Kanati Mongrels with 14" ITP SS212 wheels and tires along with 2 1/2" lift kit from Strong Made.

The wheels and tires are the same size all the way around front and back. (28"x10"x14") tires and (14"x8") wheels with 5-3 off set. After much consideration, its a look I prefer and that will also allow me to rotate front to back in the future.

I did add 1" wheel spacers to the rear which allowed the back wheels/tires to track align nicely with the fronts "width wise".

Under normal conditions there are no tire clearance issues. I primarily use my machine for utility work such as docks, lifts, boats, cutting/hauling fire wood etc, including plowing. I do enjoy some pleasure riding that mostly involves hard surfaces which the 8 ply DOT approved radials are ideal for. They are also much quieter than the typical atv/utv tire and I'm hoping they will be a little gentler on my lawn this summer as well.

I also do quite a bit of ice fishing and the added ground clearance really came in handy out on the lake this winter with the excessive amount of snow we had this season.

I wasn't sure going in how the added suspension lift would effect the drive axel C/V angels, but I must say that I am quite comfortable with where they ended up. They actually still look pretty normal. Especially in the front.

The overall height with the Honda roof is 84". Fortunatly this is not a problem for my oversize garage door.

Sorry the Pic's are a little dark. I took them early evening right after I finished installing the lift kit a couple weeks ago at my lake cabin where my Pio lives, works, and plays.

Thanks for that, I'm trying to figure out what options to outfit mine with, already ordered a 2-3" inch lift kit from stateline customs as I drove a friends last week in the everglades and it bottomed out twice. Looks great!!

Got it from strongmade.com.

Very affordable at $125.00. It consists of a set of brackes that simply bolts in at the bottom of all four shocks. I figured if I didn't like it, or if it didn't work, I could just as easily take it back out.

I love the looks of this chine........might need to go this route with mine. I will need shiney wheels though, I'm to old to understand the black wheel thing.

My thought's were that there's a practical advantage to going with the black wheels.....

If I ever ding, scuff, or damage them, I'm just a flat black spray can and a roll of masking tape away from having them look decent again!
