I'd rather spend the money on a good set of tires. Those will also really limit where you can go with the added width. I'd like to see how durable they really are.

Local Suzuki dealer sells them, I believe they were about $600. I didn't particularly care for the design but if they meet your needs and get you to where you want to be.......

A four-wheeled adventure will soon bring you happiness.

that's an interesting point. I bet it really could put quite a bit of extra leverage on the hubs/bearings when those are supporting the weight of the machine on soft terrain.

I was on YouTube and just saw the videos of these and came on here to see if anyone had talked about them. They seem like a neat idea, but I wonder if they really enhance the capability of your machine? Can I really go through mud and snow better? Obviously they are not intended for trail riding due to the added width.

Besides the mentioned hub stress issues, I was wondering about axles. When you stick in the mud, can your axles really support turning all that added tire width that is straining for traction?

I would love to ride a machine with them on just to see what it was like. It says it adds enough buoyancy to float most ATVs, I would like to see if they could drive an ATV on water. That would make it worth $600.

2015 Sportsman 570 Touring EPS - 26" Big Horn 2s, ITP Delta rims, Polaris 3500lb winch.
Sold - 11 TB 330, 11 SP 500, 13 SP 500
