My village has now made golf carts and atv's legal on the street and now that the wife and i can go cruise around i'm considering putting on street tires to save my knobbies. Thinking on the route of saving costs and using car rims i'm sure i will have to get adapters but has anyone had experiences doing this? Down falls? We dont mud or anything and they would be used for summer only.

I think you would need to find very small car rims, 12 or 13", what kind of ATV is it?

Maybe get those trailer rims/tires combo but as long as you can get a lug patter that works.

You don’t  need to change the rims.   There are a lot of people currenty doing this.  The tires are available  on a few sites including amazon.

well i plan on keeping my current set of rims and tires and just use them during the winter only so i will still have to get a set of rims.  The plan is to use car street tires because of cost and the availability of such as compared to the price and availability of dot atv tires. Street tires are avail new and used all day long and cheap and i have our tire groover  in the stock car trailer. My interest is in someone who has already done this and their opinions of the on road manners of said vehicle and any down sides to such. I can pick up  14in alum and steel rims and the junk yard here in town but cross referencing only shows an rx7 as having the matching bolt pattern so adapter/spacers to a more common pattern would be better, honda or ford rims

      My retaining wall fell 20 feet up my driveway from the entrance. I called my insurance company and was told that there isn’t a lot they can do.
       
      So I called the town to see who built it and the old homeowner did 4 years ago! With no contractor! And the building department passed it for inspection.
       
      There is no geo grid, no drainage, and dirt as a backfill. I bet you I can pull the rest down by hand.
       
      My question is who is responsible? This is not right.

      Title pretty much says it all.   After fixing my throttle body I had a look at the tires.  on my last ride my buddy hit a branch on his side wall with enough force to jar the quad off track.,  no Damage but I thought I would review mine.
      The discussion about what to bring with on the trail also got me thinking about my tire health.
      It looks like my rear tires are older, the front ones only really seem to have some knob wear and are in good shape.  I absolutely can't get new tires this year, but I still want to ride it and reduce my risk.  I am thinking of getting a couple of tubes for my rears sort of pre-emptively change them instead of having to do an urgent tube install on the trail.
      Then next year I will get 2 new rears and probably the year after get to new front leaving me 2 decent spares.
       
      I figure $50 in tubes is decent to reduce the risk until I can spend on new tires.
       
      Thoughts?

      Safety Is A Concern For Kids ATVs
      The family is into racing ATVs and now the children want to get in on the action. How do you start with someone who is too young to drive a car, but yet sees other children their own age charging through the woods racing an ATV? A tough decision for parents, but with a lot of planning and instruction your kids ATV can become a reality.
      Safety should be your first concern before getting the kids ATVs for their own use. You should plan on doing your research to make sure that you get the best kids ATV available for their age group and size. The research should include surfing the web and also by reading Consumer Reports—both of these will provide you with a tremendous amount of information on kids ATVs.
      It is recommended that the youngest kid ATV riders should have an ATV that has an engine with no more than 4.3 cubic inches. There are not too many choices at this size for kids ATVs, but you want to ensure that your child is not riding a machine that it too large for them to handle.
      As a concerned parent, you should check into the ATV Safety Institute. This group offers safety courses all over the country. The experienced instructors will teach you and your kids about pre-ride inspections, warm up exercises, braking, turning, and shifting. They also teach you about clutch and throttle control and about the importance of body position and simple maintenance. In addition they cover riding techniques and how to tackle obstacles, hills and different kinds of trails. All of these issues are important safety issues for your kids ATV riding.
      So, what are the features will your kid's ATV have? One company has an experienced team of ATV enthusiasts that work with you on your kids ATV to hand select the perfect one. Each ATV they have is designed with safety in mind and they offer a 4-point safety system which includes a throttle limiter, an emergency kill switch, a safety kill tether and a remote kill key. The kid ATVs are safe and they come with a 4 stroke engine, headlights, an electric start and disk brakes. This company that focuses on safety with kid ATVs is Motorxtremes. They want to make sure that every kids ATV is safe and that the rider follows all safety precautions.
      You should make sure that your kids ATV comes with all of the necessary additional safety equipment to make their ride as safe as possible. Every kid ATV rider should have a helmet with a full-face cover, goggles to keep dirt out of their eyes, gloves with finger and knuckle guards, a shirt with long sleeves and safety pads for their chest, shoulders, elbows and knees.
      Make sure you and your children know the rules of riding ATVs. While you can not ensure that your kids ATV rides will be completely accident free, you can help them by providing the best additional safety equipment available.

      I just wanted to post a couple of pics of my street legal ZX14 powered 4 wheel steering, 6 wheel drive project, to see what people think.

      This is now an annual event which raises money for the Relay For Life to help cure cancer. Over 200 machines plus passengers attend the event. (I don't have the exact count from this year) The whole town of Renovo welcomes the riders for the weekend and there are plans to connect this town to the nearby state trails as part of the "Northcentral ATV Initiative"

      Looking to get some tires for my old quad, but the tires are getting rarer.  Paying near 100 for tires seems a lot when that is what I just paid for tires for my car and i only ride four or five times a year 
       
      Anyone have any leads on good used or closeouts in 23x10/12 and 23x8/12?
       
      Additionally, what other sizes can I run that might be easier to find and not muck with the 4x4?
       
      Thanks,

      OK ya'll.I need your help again.My ATV, 2004 Yam Kodiak 400 4x4,needs a new REAR rim or wheel what have you,whatever term you prefer. I've posted pics here as you can see.The tire is a 25x10.00x12 . As you can see its a deep REAR rim.I cannot seem to find a deep REAR rim. (Capitalization for emphasis) . The only sizes I can find listed are for both the front and rear wheels which is  12x7  4/110.  This doesn't help me much. So,who can help me out? Im getting desperate now!LOL!

      Hello first time posting here. I have just brought a KVF 300 and the tyres need replacing. i was wondering about the sizes do you have to use the same as what are on it or can you change them a bit. the sixes are 25 x 8 - 12 front  and 25 x 11 - 10
      i am having trouble finding the 25 x 11 - 10  could i go to 25 x 10 or 25 x 12 having trouble to get the 11 for a good price
      or can i even get bigger back rims
      what are the options there
       
      Thanks Quadcrazy

      I just purchased a set (4) of these for $349.00 on Amazon. They are going on my Cforce 400.
       
      The guys on the CFMoto forum suggest I tune my clutch to make up for the increased weight, Tire Lug depth, etc.
       
      I've been doing a ton of searching on CVTech clutches and I think I've found how to do it.
      I've been told to add about 10g weight to my primary clutch and change the secondary to A1. If I don't do the weights I should atleast change the secondary to C1.
       
      Does anyone here have experience with CVTech clutches and have any recommendations for me?
       
      Anyone used SunF tires? 25-8-12/25-10-12
       

       
      Thanks!

      I love them so far. I may yet get a set of 1" spacers to go with them but haven't made up my mind.
