When in 4 wheel drive would your ratios be off enough to hurt anything. Assuming the back tires are measuring true 28 and fronts 27

Yeah I bet it would put a bind on all of the drive line with the front being smaller it would wanna spin more than the rear unless you just keep it in 2wd

unless your circumference is within 1-2% on the front vs rears, you will end up with drivetrain bind when in 4WD and things will not last long in this condition. Especially when riding in high grip conditions.......

example:
- 27" tire equals approximately 84.78" circumference.
- 28" tire equals approximately 87.92" circumference.
- This equals approximately 3.6% more on the taller tires which is too much of a difference.
