I just purchased a set of pitbull tires for my 850 xp, I love them, they are soft and they grab the Moab rock better than anything I have ever used, the ride is excellent also, I did tear a side wall on the rear and had to plug it the first day, but was able to finish the trip. The main problem is they are going to wear out fast. Anyone else tried them?? Thanks Ron

Pit bull tires

Just ordered a CX frame and now need tires. Mostly used for urban travel, trips to the store, but also to ride some single track on weekends. Can one tire really do it all?

Maxxis Bighorns will probably last a little longer than most tires Aperge.

Pit bull tires

Next friday i am buying a set of rims and i need to know which tires would be good for them for my 73 maverick.

The rims are :

2- 15x7"
2- 15x8"

I would like the front to be a little lower than the back but its not THAT important. What would be some good size tires?

Thanks in advance,
Mike

Pit bull tires

You can have the speedo recalibrated for about 100 bucks I believe. But yes the tires will be fine, I wonder why they think 205s are spec on a 98?

The Rockers will have a long lifespan, possible even longer than the BH.

I was thinking of getting the 27.5s but I wasn't sure how the clutches were going to handle the taller tire and the extra grip. I decided to get the 25.5s for now and maybe experiment with a clutch kit. I thought if I started out with a smaller tire, it wouldn't put too much stress on the drivetrain if I accidently get into a situation that would normally cause something to break.

how much did you pay for your horns SNW629? I was at a dealer today and they showed me retail of 169.00 each and i found them online for about 90.00. The dealer was telling me there must be something wrong with them cause they are so cheap. I dont believe that, i just think its a way better deal. What do you think since you have a set...

That dealer is just screwing with you. I also believe you just found a better deal. I got a set of Holeshot HDs for $60 shipped for 2. They were in like new condition, sometimes you just get good deals:top:
