Got me some 27 inch swamplites for my 2004 polaris sportsman 700. Put some one inch spacers on the front. The tire rub on the foot wells when I try to turn. How do I fix this?

Had the same problem on my 04 600. You have a few options.
You can drill new holes in your foot wells & move them back about 3/4 to 1"
Contact Rubberdown & get a 1.5" lift or replace your front springs with ones from a Ranger.

I have done all these to my bike.
The springs make the ride very stiff, not my favorite mod I have done.
Moving the foot well costs nothing & is an easy place to start.

How bad do they rub??
Tires get quite a bit shorter as you let air out!
My bud runs 2lbs in the front of his bike.

I know how you feel - can't hardly move and it is grinding like crazy in the front then a good bump makes the rears hit the top.

I made a lift kit for mine and trimmed the flanges where the fender extension and fender bolt together.
Moved all the joiner holes back to do so.
Takes a hell of a whooper to hit now.
This is with the XTRs, rumour has it that the swamplites measure smaller than listed size so you should be ok with a lift and trim.
You are wlcome to come over and check it out.

The 27 Swamplites actually run taller with the recommended air pressure; my 27s run 281/2 when they were new. Mudlites run smaller.

Not trying to cause trouble but tire sellers are openly advertising that Swamplites come up short on size.
I have no first hand experience comparing and it is also possible that Interco has revamped their product sizing.
The people I know using them, like them.
FWIW I just measured my 2 yr old rear XTR at 26.25" with 7# air (lots of tread on them).
Been sitting for a week and is likely a touch flat spotted (as radials will do).

The tires are actually 27 swamplite reptiles. Im going to put a 1 1/4 inch lift in and move the wells back an inch. Should take care of that. Ill let you know. Oh and they sit @ 26 3/4 inch @ 6 lbs. The tires have lost about 1/4 inch of the tread already as they were used tires.
