Thumbs up Which tires should I stay away from?

I just bought a 570 sportsman during the spring sales event. Real good deal ($5388 plus tax). But anyway, I donít plan on doing much muddling. Mostly country roads asphalt, trails and semi hard packed dunes. I want to go ahead and get some tires. Which tires should I get? I want to definitely stay away from any tread pattern that would cause a lot of vibration at higher speeds. Right now Iím looking at some 27Ē swamp lites with 14Ē itp black wheels. I will also be putting a 2Ē high lifter lift on.

Right now I’m pretty sure I want to go with these. The price is so low it makes me think the tire is not good though.

Exactly. For hard pack and roads you should make another choice.
Find a six ply radial.

The Swamper Vampire II tires from Interco are a 6 ply and they ride pretty nice on hard pack and they have a kick A$$ look, also if you do get off road they hook up very well in a lot of conditions. Not sure how long they will wear on tar roads is the only question? I think there are not very many ATV tires that are going to fair very well on tar roads, IMO
I have them and love them, I also did a write up on them with pictures on this forum.

Why a lift? 27s will clear without it.

Swamplites are garbage.
