Did not see any prices. Not that we need DOT tires in AZ, but it would be nice for when we ride in other states.

If the cops wanted to they could get us for not having DOT rated tires when we ride on the streets. All ATV UTV tires say for off highway use only.

Actually, I think the City of Peoria have been giving people tickets for no DOT tires and I believe they were also giving tickets for no windshields.

I'm a dealer for them and they have some pretty good tires and great wheels. Just remember most of their tires are not radial, but they are DOT approved. The new tires they have been coming out with are radial. The only radial tire they offer right now is the MotoGrip. The police technically can right a ticket if tires are not DOT, but they should not be able to right you a ticket for no windshield, that isn't a requirement because they have MC license plates, but the same law of motorcycles apply which is if there is no windshield then some sort of eye protection must be worn. And if they want to get real technical about it they may even be able to right a ticket for someone under 18 riding without a helmet, but I'm not sure about that.

Currently I don't have anyone running these tires yet, I have been selling a lot of Maxxis Cerros and ITP Bajacross. The Bajacross are heavy, but they are 8 ply and the Motogrips are only 6 ply, so most customers I've had lately want the more plys to resist puncture.
