I have a 2023 Lonestar Max which I think already has +2 forward A-arms. Stock tires are 30”.  Thinking about 18” wheels and 32” tires. Will I notice a power loss going from 30” to 32” tire? I would rather not have to mess with the clutch and all that. Just curious if anyone has noticed any power loss from 30 to 32” tires. Thanks

Yes, you will feel it.  esp if you switch to a heavy 32 vs your lighter 30" stock tire.  i noticed going from my 27s to a 28" x comp on my 22 xt, which came with a big horn or something on it.  lightest tire around on it, then added a 10 ply heavy one.  still worth the trade off, they arent speed/acceleration machines anyways.  if you need some extra power while towing or something, you will use low range anyway.  it is low enough to compensate enough.  

run them and see how you like it, you can also just tune it instead of clutching it.  I had a clutch kit and took it out, wasnt worth the higher rpms when cruising for me.

I won’t be putting any heavy mud tires or anything like that on it. It’s just a neighborhood and hunting buggy for me. I don’t go into the mud for fun so I will just be buying something similar to the factory XPS tires.

might rub, im not 100% on that.  probably not with the forward arms, you should have enough clearance with those.
