More agressive tire with out breaking the bank

Recommended Posts

I have a new Arctic cat 425i. The tires are pretty good but seem to have just enough traction to get you in really deep but not enough to get out.

The best looking Ive found are Interco Super Swampers at about $85 for the front and $120 for the rear if I go stock size. A little pricey for me but not completely out of the question

It has 25x10x12 rear and 25x8x12 front.

I thought about going to 26x12x12 year and 26x10x12 front. but do not want to change anything else like gearing, rims or clearance.

Any and all advice/suggestions will be appreciated.

I got ITP Mudlite XTR's @ I love em'......not the best on pavement but I've never gotten it stuck. They hook up great in the snow & even better in the mud. They might be a tad more expensive but well worth the investment, especially with the anti-puncture characteristics of the radial.

And I suggest to go with all same size all around, I have no clue why 4x4 quads come with different sized tires, I appreciate the thought of a "drag tire" approach, but what I think, that's a 2wd setup to me so I went with an inch in between the width of my f/back tires. Because real trail 4x4s, crawlers, and all that use the same size all around. I like more pattern, but not too wide so I can still cut through snow and mud, so on my grizz I went with 26x9x12 all around. My dads on a Rincon 650 and he got 25x10x12 and they were the same price, not too bad of a price for an amazing tire. Good luck out there.

The back tires are wider so they can grab the sides of the ruts/mud and not slip in the track cleared by the front tires. I however run the same tires back and front for the ATVS and they do fine. On the 500 I run 10s and on the 650 I run 12s (Don't try this at home).

And to get a good deal on tires you can always look used. I got all 4 tires with about 80% left for under $500.

      Hello boys and girls!:howdy:I need a little help if ya dont mind.I need to replace the rear axle bearings on my 400 but Im going at this blind having never done it before. Ive looked it up in the repair manual but it doesn't give any specific steps on how to do it. I've got the left rear brakes off already as I was replacing the shoes anyway. Can somebody give me a rundown on what Ive gotta do please?I know I need to pull the right wheel off just havent done that yet. Do I need to take anything apart in the final drive or elsewhere in order to yank the axle out for instance? Which side does the axle come out from,L or R? Any details I need to know will be greatly appreciated.Thanks ya'll!

      ARCTIC CAT BRANDED SIDE-BY-SIDES AND ATVS ARE COMING BACK
      Passion can change people. Change minds. And in the end, it can take us back to where our family has been all along. Because Arctic Cat fans and powersports enthusiasts demanded it, the Arctic Cat® name will be returning to ATVs and Side-by-Sides in 2019.
      With a legacy of innovation, performance and fun, our legendary lineup of ATVs, side-by-sides and snowmobiles are built to take you anywhere you want to go — from carving up mountain snow on a Mountain Cat Alpha One in British Columbia, to flying over the dunes in Glamis in a Wildcat™ XX. And these high-performance vehicles are still made proudly in Thief River Falls, Minnesota.

      Well I finally had to take the rear end apart on my 07 Rancher 420. Man it was nasty on the inside!!! I didn't take any pictures, too concentrated on the task I guess. The tools are retarded expensive, after I spent $280 to get the socket and puller for the pinion, because no-one makes them other than Honda. I figured out the pinion was shot due to the needle bearing being completely destroyed, it ground it down pretty bad. The bearing and seal set was cheap enough , $70 on ebay. I got the pinion on ebay too for $95, I took the nasty looking ring gear and sand blasted it, although a little pitted, still perfectly usable. I had to turn the sealing surfaces down about .015" to get them smooth enough to seal. Then for the icing on the cake. I found a brand new rear diff. assembly for $400 on ebay. Dang it!! Coulda just popped and swapped and saved $50. Oh well I have the tools to do honda rear ends now maybe I'll get my buddy who own's a CNC machine to copy them for me and I'll sell the other ones to get my money back.

      I have a quad (Can-Am) that takes 25 inch tires, just got a set of rims with tires that are 26's, not a whole bunch taller, don't see any problems using them? My main question, just in case I want to swap the tires in the rims, is on the rear tires.
      My original tires are 25/11/12 the replacement rims, the tires are 26/10/12. If the rims have the 26/10's now, will it work with the 25/11 tires? They appear to be the same width, are they? How can I tell what will work on the rim.
      Inside the rim, it is stamped 12/7.5 ET:+51

      I bought some stock wheels and tire that came off a Honda Foreman i believe. My problem is the rear rubbs my exhaust.
      Should I just put in a spacer and move the whole thing out an inch or two? Or should I buy 2 new wheels that have the correct backing?
      I have a 96 Fourtrax 300. the wheels that were on it are 9X9.0AT the new ones are 11X7.5AT.
