Kenda Bearclaw HTR questions
Hey guys, looking for any and all reviews, good or bad, on the Kenda Bearclaw HTRís. What little Iíve been able find has all been good, but no one has followed up with any long term thoughts or reviews. I know everyone loves their tires when new, but after some miles, opinions can change.
I bring this up because Iím not too far off from replacing my PB Rockers. No way I will pay that much for another set of tires for my ATV. The price is up to $850 for the size I want to move up to. Iím looking to go to a 28Ē tire, and Iím finding the choices a bit limited. Bighorns only 28Ē tire comes only in 28x10x14 and I donít know that I would like a 10Ē wide tire on the front. About $600 for a set. I slapped my 26x11x14 Bighorns (exact same size as my 26.5x11x14 Rockers) on the front yesterday and took it for a bit of a ride. The steering was difficult and it didnít want to track very straight. The only other offering for Bighorns comes in the 28x9 and 28x11 sizing, the size I want, but only in a Bighorn 2.0. Not happening!
I happened to stumble across the sizing for the HTRís and found that they make a 28x9 and 28x11 set in the 14Ē size, and the price is very reasonable at around $530 for a set. Thatís when I got interested and started looking for more info on them. It sounds like they measure a true 28Ē tall at trail riding pressures, around 5-6 psi. Now Iím even more interested, but as I mentioned earlier, Iím looking for more input from those who actually own them. Not necessarily in my size, although that would be nice, but just comments on how they perform in different conditions, how they wear and how they ride. Anybody owned Bighorns and HTR's both that could make that comparison? Any comments appreciated.
