I have a 2009 700 EFI Prowler, EPI clutch kit installed (26 inch tires), I'm looking at replacing the original tires, and would like to go up to a 27 inch tire. Any thoughts on this will be appreciated, also any tire recommendations would be helpful.

tires

with your clutch kit you could jump up to 27'' you will lose a little top end,as far as tires i like the bighorns not the 2.0 i run them on the prowler and my 680 honda they wear very good.thats my thoughts.:)

Depends on what kind of riding your doing.. For general trail riding I'm with Mike. Bighorns are hard to beat. For 75% mud and 25% trail I run Sedona Mud-Rebels and love them. For the price they can't be beat. I'm running 29's right now. Alot of people like the ITP mudlites, but IMO they are to hard of a tire. Between ATV's and UTV's I've ran about every tire you can think of. Oh yeah, if you ride 50/50 mud and trail the best tire I've ever owned is the Carlisle Black-Rock.

Daryle
I ride about 30 miles on asphalt roads, and 70-100 on trails about three times a week, and visit the sand dunes about once a month, just need an all purpose tire. The cleats on the original goodyears are about 3/4 inch, not sure how much was on them to start with, or how long they should last. Thanks for your reply! Dick

what ever you buy make sure it is a radial. I had duro power grips on my prowler they are big horn knock off at half the price. I had 3000 miles on them when I traded the machine in and they still looked new (they were a radial). now I have GBC Spartacus radial. This an awesome all a round tire plus it channels dirt out not on ya like a big horn. there are so many tire chooses out there. one guy I ride with has kenda bear claw radial the other guy has 30" dominators from super atv the others have big horns. We all do the same type of riding but not a heck of lot of pavement. That's just plain hard on tires.

I've narrowed down my search to either Sedona's, or the Bighorn. I'll start looking for deals now, don't need them til spring when the dunes reopen at Silver Lake, Mich. Thanks for all of the input! Great members! Dick

from my experience there are many many acceptable tires out there.

I do have 2500 ++ miles on Big Horn's [original ones] and find them to be a great tire in the ride area's I've used them in .. heavy woods, log roads, fire roads , and lots of rock and shale rock.

I have also go over 4K miles on Pit Bull Rocker Ubers and like them a lot but are they worth the extra $$ over Big Horns .. humm tuff question .. they do every thing the Big Horn's do, as to better that's very subjective. IMHO no not better and in one case a lil worse [over wet slick wood / downed trees ] .

Factory tires were poor handling and fronts were worn out in 1500 miles.

However I might suggst you call Discount Tire Direct [a member and supporter of this site] ... the deal I got from them was the best price I could find by a bunch. they also warranty replaced a tire that had no warranty as a customer service / satisfaction thing. even sent it free of freight. to say I'm sold on their service is an understatement.

Thanks Gary, I've visited their site, and I have purchased several sets of tires for my truck from them, and I too have had a great service from them at several different stores. Dick
