Just joined the group and wanted to say hi. I just bought my second Polaris which is a 2012 Sportsman 500 HO limited edition. my last one was a 95 Sportsman 400 which I loved. I used to work for Gregory Polaris in Arkansas a few yrs ago. Im looking at putting a set of terminator tires on it! any suggestions

Terms are really heavy heavier than silverbacks,outlaws, rad outlaw pretty much the heaviest other than black mambas and I'm pretty sure they run a lil short. There suppose to have a decent ride for a tire in its class and do ok on hard pack ground there good lookin tires I'd like to try them out. What type of riding are u gonna be doin?

Sounds like a awesome idea but you will need lots of other aftermarket parts! Keep us updated would love to see what it looks like when its all done! :)

mainly trail riding and muddin..Tyler what u mean by a lot of aftermarket parts
Well it depends. If you ride a atv and the terms are the 34's you will prob need axels a clutch kit and a lift. But if its a sxs you prob wont need those.

I might go that big on a rzr but maybe 28 on the sportsman. I want to get them in the outdoors more and my cousin and his family r lookin at doing the same. that way we can ride together and travel together. cant wait to get the sxs cause its gonna be nice when I'm done. lol

Yeah 28's should be a good size for the atv.

Even if ur planning on runnin 28s in the terms u will need a clutch kit definitely will need axles after a little harsh treatment it will take quite a bit of torq to handle the terms well. Ever thought of running mega meyhem, zillas or something of that caliber?

28" outlaw will fit and will never leave you wanting something else. The terminators just don't clean out as well in the deep mud. You will need axles some offset rims or spacers for stock rims, and a clutch kit. not to mention if you go really deep a snorkel and a rad relocate and seal and dielectric grease everything.
