lite rear UTV tire sand use advice


Recommended Posts

Advice/recommendation on a set of lite rear UTV tires 26x11-12 needed for mainly very soft deep sand 65%, 15% gravel rd., 10% hard pack,  5% paved roads. 5% mud. All the reviews mention mainly mud lites, and very little sand lite tire brands! Looking for a tire that's lite but will dig well, reducing motor clutch overworking while slipping/spinning in lite sand. Appreciate any advice, Thanks, Steve

Need help from anyone that rides fast/hard long on lite tires under 25# on soft sand w/ little use on road/rock/mud/hard pack.

Heres a few brands that seem like the tire pattern I'm looking for on these reviews, but got me confused!

Maxxis Zilla ATV Tires 26-11-12 MZ41100 23.3 # 1.19480 $101.90
 I just read this review:
they run small and puncture way too easy
3 miles into the first ride with these tires one popped on a gravel trail, no sticks no sharp rocks, just class 5 gravel. also i bought 26x11x12 and the accrual height of the tire is 24.5" at 5psi. too short!

This tire is only 23-1/2" tall. Not even close to 26 inches tall as advertised.One Star

BIG HORN:
 seem to run heavy about 30#'s, compared to other lite brands.  Tread pattern doesn't match my front tires. Like Wanda or Mars nut they both are very narrow by 2''.

reviews:
You get what you pay for. I thought I was getting a great deal on a pair of 25x10x12 tires until I got them mounted. They are much smaller than the stock tires I was replacing. They are aprox. 24" diameter. They blow up when adding air/ shred easily!

Extremely heavy 30#'s, and 12'' W, not 11'' as needed, I have these mounted for rears now, look good, work well for plowing snow, but I'm afraid while riding fast and long trips, out most of the day in soft sand, they'll mess with clutch/belts!

Any one riding hard n long, on sand w/ little road use?
Thanks

      Sorry I suck at these forums so if you see this submitted under update status, my bad. Anyhow this is a new shock for a 96 Yamaha Kodiak 400 4x4 it fits my 96 Yamaha Timberwolf 250 4x4 perfectly. Little narrower are the bottom than the original but everything else is perfect. I extended it to almost a half in from full extension because I’m pushing 350 pounds.  It rides and hold me well. So if any of y'allRace driven shock. have been looking for one and didn’t want to do the research here it is.

      1996 4x4 Timberwolf rearend width. Can someone with some knowledge of these machines answer this question for me please. Are all 4x4 timberwolves this narrow in the rearend? These tires are so close the right one actually rubs the muffler.  Thinking about seeing if there are any spacers out there for it. I need at least an inch more clearance.
