Tires

Our Prowler came with 26" Goodyear Rawhide MT/R tires. These have performed nicely, but they are wearing out (about 2,200 miles on them). Is this rate of wear fairly typical for this tire?

Also, I heard that Arctic Cat has an extended wear tire, which I believe they used on the Baja run. Does anyone know anything about these tires, and how the behave all-around (i.e., a little mud, a little snow, a lot of rock and dirt)?

I am running Maxxis Big Horns and they are wearing very nice. My friends Ranger has about 1400 miles on the OE tires and is ready for new ones. Hope that helps

Hey elko, the maxxis big horns and the itp mud lights are what everyone i talk to like.I prefer the Goodyear's because they are a lighter tire.The big horns or itp's will last longer from what i have seen.

Thanks, guys. I think we should get a series of comments regarding tire types and wear rates from the other members. We might look at how wear varies not only with tire make/model, but also in terms of the dominant riding environment.

For us, about 2/3 of our miles are on gravel roads, and 1/3 is on rocks. There is a dash of snow and mud, but the mud is nothing like some of the guys see. Sand is almost non-existent.

The Goodyears are supposed to wear pretty well, I have heard good things though about the Big Horns as well though.

Thumbs up

I have a 2007 Prowler , I now have 6000 k on my machine I think the Goodyear tire is awsome, I had to replace the set as I cut one down on some shale, I went right back to the Goodyear

Elkotrailrider is right, tire wear depends greatly on the terrain your riding in. Bighorns last a little longer if you running in rocky jagged conditions than say a Terracross, because the lugs on the bighorn are larger- bigger and have less sipping witch makes them hold up a little better to rocky trail conditions.

We are trying out some of the new 8 ply sidewall tires from GBC, stronger side walls for UTV applications. Less chance of a sidewall problem. After some more testing I'll let you know how their working out.

Has anybody tried super swampers or bfg's? If so how do they ride and do they effect your rig? Good or bad
