So my stock 2017 750 KQ came with Carlisle AT489 Bias Tires

On Amazon these seem to have excellent reviews although the thing I here the most cumulatively on the forums is the first thing to change is the tires. 

Are these tires all that bad? They seem to be holding up nice and i go on some pretty serious black diamond trails. Granted this is my first ATV purchase and i don't really have anything long term to compare these to. 

Please lace me up if im missing something here because if buying a new set of tires will increase performance - reliability- comfort - im all for it... Also if you guys could recommend some tires for the trails I'd appreciate it. I don't mud and don't plan to if that helps narrow down the search.

They should be fine unless you are looking to upgrade them. The stock tires aren't the most aggressive but still good. I had a 700 king quad and got through all kinds of terrain with stock tires.

Here was my favorite:


If you look on Amazon at a few Carlisle tires, as you mentioned, you'll see some pretty good reviews.

Carlisle AT489 All-Season Bias Tire - 25/10-12 84B 4 1/2 stars with 90 reviews

Carlisle AT489XL ATV Tire - 25X8-12 4 1/2 stars with 63 reviews

Also to follow up on this topic, I currently have a yamaha grizzly with upgraded quadboss tires and rims which makes the quad sit higher and feels more aggressive which is great in the snow and mud but a bit overkill on regular trails and rips up my grass when rising around my house...lol. I recommend them if you like go in mud, water, snow riding, etc. In my opinion, if you like the feel and ride of stock tires just keep using them. If you want deeper traction and a more aggressive look, upgrade them. The skinnier and smaller the front tires are, the easier the turning is (manual steering).
