Stock I think you can squeeze 26" in there....
OEM:(25X11-9)-REAR (23X8-11)-Front Tires

Engine displacement on the 300 is only 282 cc, and it will not handle larger tires without considerable power loss. One inch wider in the rear won't hurt anything, but taller tires are not a good idea. You would run into steering issues without a lift.

With the 26" tires, will those fit all around without a lift? I'm new to ATV'ing and was wondering if you have any recomendations on an easy and affordable way to lift this quad?

Thanks in advance!!

Arrow 96' 300 Fourtrax....

26" will fit all the way around....

2" lift kit....INCLUDES 3" WHEEL SPACER KIT....$100+ It would widen the stance and be taller. I have heard of people fabricating the lift kits....you can get everything at Home Depot....hard part is the bracket sizes....you could make your quad sit the exact way you want.

Only thing lacking would be power.....and the taller you go on the tire==the transmission struggles more. yes 27" will fit no problem with the lift.
