Couldn't help myself!

Well went to my dealer yesterday and rode a sporty 1000 and I couldn't help myself, so I bought one. They gave me a good trade in on my 14 850 so what the hell. Can't wait to pick it up. I could have took the one on the floor but I wanted one out of the create so I hope they call me today.
Indy how are your tires holding up? Thought about ordering some bighorns but I remember you saying that the factory tires were holding up pretty well.

i put bighorns on mine right after unloading at my house, wife runs stocks on here 850, the horns look much cooler and seem to have a little more bit in the muddy type trails, we dont mud with them but always have some muddy trails, feels more nimble (for a huge quad) with the stock tires

Yea, Im running bighorns on my 13 850 and love them. Had Blackdiamond XTR's on my 14 and really didn't care for them. I will ride it and see what I think since it's going in to winter I will probably run my tracks on it anyways so I'll just wait till spring and maybe upgrade then.

I've only got a couple hundred miles on my tires, as of right now I like them. I've had them in mud, sand, roads and hard pack trails. I've had no problems getting around at all. I don't see any reason to change them until they wear out.

Congrats Cubby on the 1000 you will love it especially when you start getting some miles on it
the Tires are wearing good, but with all that power they like to spin, it will spin violently if you let it

congrats on the new ride! I would ditch the tires sooner rather than later. I had 2 holes in my PXT's within 75 miles. Very, very thin sidewalls if you have any rocks on the trails. That being said, I pinch flatted a Bighorn too (plug still holding after another 200 hard miles though). The 14 inch wheels suck for rocky trails...I used to run 4lbs in my terracrosses on the Brute...never had an issue in 1600 miles at Hatfield...the 14 inch wheels on the Polaris call for at least 7, if not 8lbs imo (I had 6.5 when I pinch flatted my BH)
