Mayhems + STI HD Beadlocks - first major upgrade

I know this isn't primarily a picture forum, but I have to rave about the wheel and tire package I recently installed on my 2015 Rancher. I had a chance to ride yesterday, and it literally made a complete, 100%, 180-degree...however you describe it...change in handling, traction, and comfort.

I almost ordered a 25x8x12/25x10x12 STI HD + Maxxis Zilla package, but thankfully the order fell through with the retailer (not going to mention it here because I don't like to throw stones). What I ended up getting from Rocky Mountain ATV (much better shopping experience with RM) was the same wheel - STI HD Beadlock in matte black - but I opted instead for the ITP Mayhems in 26x9x12 (front) and 26x11x12 (rear). I'm very pleased that I went with the extra width and height tires, even if it did come with the expense of a bit more weight. Honestly, lugging the old ones off and putting the new ones on wasn't a huge difference. Definitely heavier, but not "heavy" if that makes sense. And with the beadlock, I have more peace of mind rolling over the terrain in our area.

What a difference! My Rancher handles much easier and at times I could swear I had power steering. If you're wondering if the 26" wheels made a noticeable difference in available power (due to the heavier tire), the answer is no. In fact, because of the increase in stability and traction, I believe the power is much more efficiently applied to the ground. I could be wrong, but that's the impression I got. Anyway, here's how they look.

The first picture is the before shot, the other two are after. You'll also notice a new Kawell light bar and a Kolpin cargo bag.
