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.

      I have a 2007 Honda Recon ES and need some new tires. The stock tire sizes are 22x10-9 and 22x7-11. I'm looking at some Carlisle AT489 tires but the closest sizes i can find are 22x10-10 and 22x7-12. Will they fit? Thanks.

      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.

      Customer brought in this bike for no response when put in gear. After getting into the transmission I found the main shaft for the clutch had been stripped where the gears mesh up and also the shaft for the gears had been broken in half. I replaced all broken parts and reassembled the transmission. Now it makes a knocking noise in low gear and in reverse. When in neutral it tries to roll reverse while making the same knocking noise. I’ve disassembled and reassembled it several times with the same result. Any ideas??

      just rebuilt the carbs because it sat up for a few years and wouldn't run at all. now it idles, but only with choke. you can give it just a little throttle but not much before it tries to die, take choke off, it dies (warm or cold temp). air fuel mixture doesn't really effect it at all and it'll still idle with mixture screws all the way in. any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated!

      Having a problem on my 2006 400. LCD display will not power up. Check fuses under seat seem ok. Is there any inline fuses I should know about....Any help?

      OK, sooo  I finally did the old skid plate and screen removal to clean out my oil sump during an oil change...  This bike only has a couple thousand miles on it.  Runs like a top still...  Very few issues over the years after buying it used.
      But boy I wasn't expecting to see this!  Piece of a circlip, stuck up in the screen, and a another shard of metal and maybe a piece of gasket material.  Nothing in the oil but that...  Pristine otherwise, and still runs like a top.  Always has.
      Soooo, is it a wrist pin clip?  That's the only thing I can think of like this that could end up in there.  But definitely wanted to throw it out to guys that have seen the innerds of these more than I have.
      The valves on this thing are still within the factory spec even.  Been a really good lil workhorse...
      Any other ideas?
