Hi,

I am looking for a decent of tires for mostly rocky terrain. Any suggestions?

I am considering the ITP's and the Longhorns.

I have a 2008 Honda Rancher 420 with stock rims.

I blew holes in the sidewalls of two of the stock tires so I figure I better just get new ones.

Thanks.

Here's the one's I am looking at. The next question is how do I know what size to get?

Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 - ATV Direct - ATV Tires and More - www.4atvtires.com

The existing tires are as follows:

Front: AT24x10x11

Rear: AT24x8x12

The only sizes in the BigHorns are:

25x10x12

25x8x12

Will these work on the existing rims? Thanks.

You will only be able to put 12" tires on the rear... your front rims are 11"

Yea, I found fronts, but not rears. I cannot find rear tires anywhere. I think I might have to get new rims. I hope not.

The BigHorn, the Terracross, and the Kenda Bounty Hunter are the best all-purpose tires...IMO

decent tire, but I would stick with the tire you already mentioned, IMO I think the Bear claw will wear down fast

Unfortunately they don't make the bighorns in my rim size. I really don't want to buy new rims.

I hate to break it to you, none of those tires come in an 11" rim. You might have to suck it up and buy some 12" rims for the back...

Kenda BearClaws are an awesome tire for a 4x4 quad. Stay with stock size. My uncle runs them on his 04 Rancher, he has about 1200 miles on them. With about half tread left. He rides on roads and rocky Kentucky terrain. Alot of people in Kentucky run them . All around good tire. Ran them on my Ozark for 3 years to.

the good thing is that its a 6ply tire u wont be worrying bout popping holes in the side walls like ur stockers which were probably a low rated ply right?

Also have bead protecters built in. Roofing nail was the only hole I ever had in them.

Do they come sized for an 11" rim?
To answer your question Bot, yes they do. Along with Mudlites and AMS tires, the Kenda BearClaw has one of the greatest tire selections for utility quads on the face of this planet.

I'm impressed. I know what Kenda is all about...high quality on a budget. I use Kendas on my dirt bikes. Never knew that they had 11" though. Thanks BB

Yes, that will make all the difference in the world. I think the stock tires are only 2-ply.

The Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 are amazing! But I am also a fan of the ITP Mud Lite XL's as well :) What kind of riding you looking at doing?

      Just got a set of QUADBOSS of 14" QBT447 Utility Tires and a set of 14" QuadBoss Scoville Boss Wheels to mount them on, so that we could beef up the Yamaha Grizzly this winter and run a set of high performing utility tires in the mud & snow (We now need some snow in NY). 12" stock tires and rims came off the ATV and this new set of 14" tires and rims went on, and as you can see...it really gives the quad a great look and some additional ground clearance. Take a look at the before and after photo below story. 
      Check out some of the additional photos below, we've got our QuadBoss Lounger Trunk which makes a great addition to the quad when hitting the trails. The tires grab very well and the quad feels so much more stable on the trail, for the first quick ride. More posts to come on this over the next few weeks and months as we take our ATV out in the woods for some riding!
      A few notes about QUADBOSS Scoville Boss Wheels:
      Built to handle offroad abuse and look awesome doing it. Radical new designs will take your ride to the next level. Ultra strong and super lightweight. Precision machined, aircraft-quality aluminum wheels offer superior performance. Gorgeous finish creates a real show stopper. All wheels come with trick custom center caps. Wheels are rated 573 lbs. to 727 lbs.   A few notes about QUADBOSS QBT447 Tires: Tough 6-ply bias construction with 3/4-inch tread depth Wrap around lugs give extra sidewall protection and excellent bite for comering Directional tread pattern excels in loose to intermediate terrains Unique center treat pattern sheds mud but also provides smooth ride on hard pack Sculptured lugs provide additional traction Load rated for most ATVs and UTVs  
      Make sure to visit www.quadboss.com for ATV parts and Accessories!

      I need to replace the front tires on my '86 Quadsport 230. What kind should I get, Radials or bias ply. I will be doing mostly turf riding in my hay field with 2-3 trips a year to trails up north with mixed terrain. The rear tires are Dick Cepek's that have a tread that looks like a combo of tractor tire and a turf tire. My riding style is not extreme, but can be mildly aggresive. Thanks for your input in advance, Rob.
