Best/worst atv tires

Recommended Posts

My experience for my 98 sportsman. .keep on mind it has the smaller rear rim so my tire choices are not all that great ...

Best...  Goodyear mud terrain. Long lasting awesome all around great tire.  No longer available of course 

Worst. ...super swamper vampire . Too soft. Ended up on gravel a few times over a few months of winter snow riding. . Burned down from 1.5 inch paddle to 1 inch in no time. Junk. But if you are able to 100% stay in soft terrain they are insane 

Current. . Mud lites . Pretty decent.  But I miss my Goodyears

I have always run Dunlops on my quads.  They seem to work really well in the mix of terrain and snow I ride in.  My local shop sells them and they are in the budget, so I stick with them.

I had Dunlops on my predator.  Awesome sand tire. Perfect for what I doing at the time. Maybe one year I'll get off my wallet and get an outlaw 525.. got too beat up on the predator .

If I had a bigger budget my dream setup would be an Outlaw or Predator hooking up on Maxxis Razr.  All my fun money was coming from my Ebay store and sponsors I was able to get through social media. The last two years included a new baby, multiple job changes, and several injuries, so not enough riding time to keep on that roll.

A new baby alone would eat up any extra money you had for sure .  

I liked the predators solid axle for sliding into and out if corners.  Was sick. In worried that the irs outlaw would hook too much

ROFL In my dream garage I have a Predator sitting next to a 77 Bandit Trans Am.  In my real garage I have a Trailblazer 250 sitting next to an 82 Trans Am.  I got pretty close eh!!

I'm running Kenda Bearclaws on mine, they seem to be a great tire for what I'm using them for.  I don't do any muddin' so.....they are great for the mountain trails I'm riding.  Had  one set on for two seasons now and don't seem to be hardly worn.  You guys are lucky, you at least have a dream garage.

      I have a 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500. A year or so ago we got it running after replacing the kill switch. It ran great but after some use for a couple months it got a flat tire and for some reason we just forgot about it and it sat for some time. Before it sat i replaced the gas cap, fuel filter, fuel pump, petcock, battery, starter relay, oil and oil filter. I recently went to start it and it started so quickly and without choke or throttle but the ATV wouldn't move till about 1/4 throttle and it wasn't really a smooth ride until 1/2 throttle. it also would bog out randomly after you came to a stop and sounded like it was getting too much fuel. I cleaned the carb and adjusted the air/fuel screw to 1 3/4 turns out.  I also messed with the idle and the throttle cable adjuster up on the handlebars. It's safe to say it now runs worse than when i started working on it 2 days ago. It takes more effort to get started and bogs out idling after about 30 seconds. I tried adjusting the idle but every time i do it'll get to a sweet spot but after driving it down the driveway and back the idle will go up and down to the point where i can't put it in gear because the gears will grind. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

      Hi all am wondering if anyone has wrecked a 1992 quad runner, an has rear plastics available for it?.
      Am hoping for red, although will take any colour if is in Perth Western Australia.
      Any advice is greatly appreciated
