What after market tires are you using and how do you like them


Recommended Posts

I am starting to see more and more aftermarket tires on peoples troopers on here and was wondering what you all thought about your choice. I want to put some one mine but I'm not sure if I should go with a all terrain type tread or something more aggressive.

I haven't had mine on long enough to give an honest answer, but I believe they're the best I could get for my rims and was influenced by my son's off road racing knowledge, would have used B. F. Goodrich if they made one for 14". You got to consider your type of riding too. I'm not aggressive in general but occasional, get very aggressive, so I went with what will do the job and last as long as possible, least expensive over long run. I do like the bead/rim guard on these though. Photo later.

I'm running Super Swampers and they seem to get the job done in our sandy rocky terrain. I paid $499.90 for 5 tires including shipping from JC Whitney.

In order to run them all around I had to get a couple of rims as the stock rear rims are to wide. Now I have a spare that will fit each corner.

The Super Swampers are 28x8.50x14LT. They are a little more aggressive than a normal truck tire. You can see the specs on the Super Swamper web site. http://www.intercotire.com/. The picture is the TSL bias.

I don't know where you're located but if there's a Costco nearby they will dismount and remount your tires for $11.00 a tire. That includes balancing and a new valve stem. They definitely need balancing. Each tire took around 3 ounces of weight. If you don't balance them it's hard on the suspension as well as the tire.

4x4x454, this is what I like http://www.simextyres.co.nz/simex-article....cle=-2092972571 if only they made one our size. Never the less, something along this paten is the way I want to go for my terrain (mud, rocks and metal roads). Does anybody know of another brand with this type of tread paten?

Cheers Mike.

      I realize that many of you do not have diesel machines.  For those that do, this is for you:
      Just wanted to post my experience this past week.  Here in Texas, we had pretty good dip in temps.  For 4 days it did not get above 25.  At night, it was single digits or close to it.  I always put Sta-Bil fuel stabilizer in the storage tank (30 gallon).  And up until this tank I was using Power Service (white bottle) for anti-gel.  Never had an issue.
      This tank, however, I switched to Stabil All season (anti gel).  It is supposed to good down to -40.  Zap.  That is a big fat lie.  I put in twice the amount called for in the instructions.  Result was less than optimal.  I drove the SxS 100 feet (to go get the mail) and it died.  I looked at the fuel bowl and it was a cloudy, wax substance.  So, the Stabil did not work.  That said, I'm not sure that I ever tested the Power Service in the same manner.  So I am not saying that one is better than the other.
      What are your experiences?  Are these products inferior?  What do you folks in the northern states / Canada use?  Am I missing something?

      Does anyone have a had time starting there utv.
      I have a T-Boss 750 and I have had to put 2 starters in and put heavier wire to the starter but it still has a problem starting. it will turn over and than die before it wil turn over again. could it be that there is to much compression that might cause this problem
       
      Thank you

      I would like to perform most all my own servicing on the Kubota rtv-x1140. What is the best way to raise the machine for skid plate removal, etc?  I would like it to be parallel with the ground after elevated. It is difficult for me doing that lying under it on the ground.  I’m not certain where safe lift points are. Can I use a residential 2 post car lift?, or is a “drive on” platform the only option?
