I put a set of 28’s on my sportsman and on my buddys scrambler. First ride today, he got a sidewall cut. Are the sidewalks on these tires an issue or was it just bad luck today? Trails are rocky in Maine and NH where we ride and never had a sidewall tear on the stock tires.
we run 7psi in them if that matters.

I’ve never heard of those tires having any sidewall weakness issues, but 7 PSI is an awful lot for rock crawling, or any trail riding in my book. 4-5 PSI is what most of us are using. Rock Crawlers often going lower than that. (With bead lock wheels)

This was the first ride with them, I’ll adjust down a little, I’m sure it will ride better. It was definitely tougher than the factory tires at the same pressure.

Sounds good, if I recall correctly they are 6 ply tires. Usually 4-5 pounds max works well.
