Dominator tires from SuperATV


Recommended Posts

Has anyone purchased these tires from SuperATV? I'm talking specifically about the Dominators, 30x10-14's. They are (or were) really cool tires. We bought them in 2011, Lloyd wanted to go to 30" tires instead of the 28's that came on the trooper. We put 30x12-14's on the rear. Well, after less then half life, the 10 wides we put on the front have failed miserably. They have cracked right where the lug meets the carcass. 5 places on one tire and three on the other. The response we got from SuperATV was they would give us $50 off per tire for the purchase of new ones. After all, they are 2 years old. What does age have to do with wear? There's still plenty of tread left on the tires, they are not worn out. You can still see the wear bars on the tires. Lloyd and I feel it's a manufacturing problem. SuperATV refuses to do anything else, and so far we are refusing to buy any new tires from them. I would like to know if anyone else has had any better luck with these tires.

I'd bet that $50 is a customer satisfaction credit because the manufacturer who makes it for them is not going to give Super ATV any credit on those most likely. With age comes dry rot and cracking unfortunately. :(

I don't buy that the tires are dry rotted. Why would that only happen to the front tires for one, and for two - in EXACTLY the same place in a perfect line? Plus the buggy is parked under an awning out of the sun when it's not being driven.

I found out after digging, that the mfg discontinued these tires for a period of time not long after we purchased them. Hmm...wonder why that might be? Then they brought them back again late last year.

We did go ahead and purchase another set, so let's see how it goes. Still not happy with how they handled our original complaint, but we are kinda between a rock and a hard place as to where to get other tires the same size. So since they did discontinue and then bring them back, we shall see if they fixed the flaws they admitted to - and they did admit to flaws, although not the ones we found.

And just for the record, we were driving down a paved access road, about 1/10 of a mile long, no road hazards whatsoever last week - and a new hole blew in the right front. Sounded like a shot, and the tire was flat in an instant. It took 5 tire plugs to fill it. Our plan was to stay on a well used dirt track, nothing to put any stress on the tires, to just go to a spring and watch for wildlife coming in to drink. We didn't even get out of the driveway, basically. No, I don't buy that the tires are weather checked, when they are blowing holes continually where the lug meets the carcass. Lloyd said if he could hit road hazards in exactly the same location that many times over and over again, he needs to go buy lottery tickets.

The two front tires are toast, but the two rear ones will be held onto for spares.

Stay tuned.

      I picked up this Hisun 700cc for a good deal. no crank no start unit 1900 miles on it. Put a new battery and starter solenoid fired right up but sounded rough some kind of rattle/clunk noise.  Does anyone know what this noise could be? Couldn't get a better video of it running as i don't want to risk doing more damage. Drained the oil it looks good no metal in it.

      When researching the Tracker, I was interested in the 800SX LE. The original sales literature indicated that the LE came with 27x9x14 and 27x11x14 tires. When I went to pick up my Tracker, it had 26” tires on it. I called Tracker before paying for the Tracker and was told they had supply issues and could not get 27” tires. I’m curious to know if anyone has taken delivery of an LE with 27” tires in stalled? I just recently installed 27” tires and am happy with the added ground clearance and beefy look the machine has taken on!

      Less than 40 miles can barely start. Dealer is working with Hisun on a number of other issues on this UTV. Can not get clear info on the meaning of these E codes this is getting. Anybody have some clear info for me?

      hello everyone, i just joined this forum to try my luck, few days ago i bought an old (dont know exactly), 2011/14 hi sun 500cc ""carburated"",  was not running at the time, but i fell was a good deal and decided it to bring it home to play with it, this is the issue, i bought and installed a new carb, and pump, i repositioned the battery location and upgraded to a "car batt", reconnected the fuel lines and started it, but it only runs with the choke ON, i checked the bowl, it does have fuel,but for some reason wont inject it to run, i came across a video that say that ""the body small tank had to be connected for the cart to run" (was deleted when bought), sure enough i got it to run sporadically , but the so called ""small body tank'' often runs out of fuel and wont refill itself , i had to couple times do it manually, so how does that small tank works ?..what does it do?..and why if  bypass it , the cart wont start?....any help?..thanks so much!!!

      Purchased a 2011 bighorn banchee. Needs motor work. Not sure what. Husband is mechanic but not computer savvy. So, is there a manual that will tell him how to tear this down?  We have down loaded a service manual, but he says it doesn't tell him what he is looking for.
