Tires and Wheels

Recommended Posts



I ordered a new front rim and they sent me a rim they took off of another machine. You could tell it had a tire mounted on it and was scratched around the edge check out what you order closely. I called and complained and they are sending me a new one but it should have been new the first time.

They look big on the front, but a little small on the back, but I think they'll do great. :rolleyes:

I like the way they look. You might loose a little in the mud but gain a bit else where. I'll look forward to your comments in the future with them.

Cheers Mike.

I hate mud too and would swap it for your sand no worries. They wont be as good as the stock tires in mud but they will still perform very well so I think it's a good move for you.

Cheers Mike.

Well I've tried for 3 days to order the rim on line, but I get an error message after choosing shipping instruction. Maybe because I'm in Mexico. I guess I have to do it the old fashion way and use a phone. Anyone have instruction on how to use the phone. LOL

:rolleyes: Put your finger in the hole that has the number you want, and using your finger, turn the dial in a clockwise direction until your finger hits the stop, Clockwise means upwards on the left side, Repeat for all Ten Digits. :lol: or tap on the phone hook until the operator answers ............. :lol:

I'm interested in this. How can I pay you for it though? Since I'm eating my tires lately, I would be great to get this. PM to come.

Thanks for the tip on dailing, I printed it out and stuck next to the old rotary phone. LOL

Took my new tires out for a ride today, cold, 64.8 km 40.3 mi. They seem to perform great, they are a little harder to turn when not moving, larger contact patch, they didn't seem to float around as bad the stockers did, they were smoother, no lugs, I don't think I spun the wheels as much, and they didn't throw rocks as bad as the stockers and what rocks it did throw were small and what little mud I got into didn't get slung as bad. I expect these tires to last a lot longer than stock also. I did some hill climbing and fire roading and no roads and down hills and quad trails.

I give these tires and A+ and would rather have them than stock. I also think they will do better in sand than stock.

Got another deal for someone, at present I have my old rear tire mounted on top for my spare. I like my new tires that are mounted on 14 X 6 in. wheels and would like a 5th one. If someone wants two (2) used rear tires on the 14 X 8 wheels with tubes, I'll trade for one General Grabber AT2 27x8.50 R14 95Q 6PR OWL tire mounted on a stock 14 X 6 in wheel.

2107057100104282158eChsEd_th.jpg

The tire in the center, one of the wheels had a rock lodge between the brake and the inside of the wheel. It caused a scratch all the way around and finally caused a shallow dent inwards as the rock shattered. This caused a leak and was repaired using JB Weld epoxy to seal the hole, both inside and out, it worked fine, the tube was put in later when the tire developed a leak in the side wall. Photos later.

Tire shipped to me $98.92

Wheel shipped to me $105.74

Mount tire locally $12.50

Total for (2) used rear tires on the 14 X 8 wheels with tubes $217.16 + shipping.

Went out again today to test my tires :lol: , hah, I went for a ride because the weather was good. Went to a place called 5 mile pass and then went to the top following the ridge, the "road" was mostly shale and very very rocky, the square type, and the tires and the trooper just putted and roared right up. Didn't see any damage from the nasty rocks and they held their traction just great, I like this tires. :rolleyes:
