Hello was just wondering if anyone tried the pro armor dagger mud tires. I seen new sportsman 850 at the dealer with them installed. They look really beefy but heavy, I don't do much mud at all just wondering how they ride on hard pack

How much do they weigh??

They look like a decent tire. Look a lot like the ITP mega mayhem's. Don't look like they would be to bumpy as the treads have some overlap.

I read in the sportsman parts and accessories catalog that they way roughly 40 pounds more for the rears. They are 27" inches as well I just don't want to dumb down the power right now it lifts the tire nicely, and your right the tread doesn't look like it will right real choppy

Fronts weigh 36lbs and rears 40lbs. Definitely heavier than the mayhems but the tread pattern is similar. 8 ply, so good puncture resistance for trails. If they ride like the mayhems then they will be good on trails, even hard pack. But you’ll notice a performance decrease with the weight and height.

I may have go with something else, I like the attacks they seem more realistic. I have a polaris credit to spend I figured tires would be the best bang for the buck

Why would you even look at a mud tire if you don't do much mud??
The weight will be VERY noticeable.

Hey listen if you like them f-it and use that Polaris credit and get them!!! They are not a mud specific tire they are what I would call a a trail tire with a PH D in mud!!! My opinion is a tire heavier then 35 front and 40 rear or taller then 28" requires a clutch kit. So if you were to purchase them and then decide you need a clutch kit well they are sitting on the shelf waiting for a home!!!

I agree a clutch kit will be needed, but you can get by without for a bit while you’re under warranty.

Depending on where you ride, they will perform fine on the trails and have the necessary bite when you get into the soup. If you ride mainly gravel roads and some trails then I would stick with a trail specific tire.

Yeah will see not looking to pull the trigger till spring anyways. They are 27 inch tall not much bigger then stock. I enjoy how the machine performs as it sits right now. What are some good clutch options out right now?

Both!! The kit will come with different shims to increase engagement rpm. I used the thinnest one for the lowest rpm engagement. I tend to do some technical stuff so a softer hit helps!!

Got them on my 17 570, love them. I do some mud and creek crossing and they do the trick. Rode my road miles while at H&M over past couple years and very smooth. They will tear up your yard if your not careful. Will get them again
