So when I was in the final stages of sealing the deal on my maverick i had the stealer (and stealer is right) qoute me on some 30in Zillas on 14" ITP SS212 wheels. They qouted me just over $1500.

I just picked up the exact set, used but in good condition for $850 :D

Anyways, I did some reading in the other threads, but couldn't find an answer. I gather that it's recommended to reclutch for taller tires but for mild cruising is it really necessary? I wanted the taller more mud orientated tire for some of sloppy trails I might encounter and not so much for riding hard and going deep. I'll put my horns back on for hard riding.

Could I get away with it or still a good idea to clutch?

They are a lighter tire for 30s but it would make sense to at least put a clutch kit in. As far as which one I hear good things about dalton but there are quite a few choices out there

It would be a good idea to put a clutch kit it. Check out Hunterworks. They have a clutch kit from Dalton, that would work perfect for what you need.

Oh and actual measured height is just under 29" now I know in the automotive world most tires never measure their described height, is it the same here? Would that make any difference? Probably not eh?

I think I'll take the advice from everyone as a whole here. I'll see how she rides, that way I can determine my driving style. I learned and grew up on semi auto sport ut quads and trikes, 20 years later I still swear by shifting and own 2 race quads, so this whole CVT thing is new to me lol

Well mounted them up and went for a rip. Damn they look good on there. Didn't seem like it bothered the performance too much at all, though their road manors are much different then the horns. Didn't open it up on the road, but once I hit the snow and mud I didn't notice any lack of power and clawed up a slick dirt mound like a champ.
