After reading the forum I just ordered Kenda Bear Claw HTRs (26x9x12 frt 26x11x12 rear) mounted on new ITP Delta Steel 12x7 wheels on my daughter's new to us used 2015 Sportsman 570 for her birthday.
We bought the used 570 w/87 hours,
nice but it spent it's prior life as an icehouse ditch runner.
When the guy was blocked in @ his lake house in front of a state park boat ramp he still got around at the expense of the stock wheels & tires.
Been sitting on the fence about the plug filled tires running dented rims.
Thought about buying new takeoffs @ $300 a set but the upgrade is worth the extra investment.
The old dinged spare set can be for emergency on the other new 570 X2 after I hot patch them inside big time.
Steel is the way to go when walking out is not the best option IMO.
I was proud of my daughter knowing to choose the steel wheel option.
Thanks again forums for improved
family time fun.
$684. to your lower 48 states door
