I have a Polaris side by side, RZR, and I need new tires. The area I use it is +/- 30% blacktop, 60% hard packed, rocky logging roads and 10% woods, soft, muddy trails. I am not that concerned about huge lugs for muddy conditions, as I have few of those and I do have a winch in case of emergency. I am more concerned about a long lasting tire, given the high cost of them. I still have the originals on the rear [ Maxxis brand ] with 8,000 miles on them. Yes! that is 8,000 miles. Maxxis does make a "Big Horn" brand---is that good? And Carlisle makes some good ones. Any suggestions from other SXS users?? I am also thinking 6 ply as the logging roads have tons of sharp rocks. Input??

Hal, I just read you latest FFG article about your UTV----What tires do you have?

The Polaris Ranger I bought in 2012 had two-ply tires that wore and dry rotted in only 4 years. Bought Rocktane tires that were 8-ply and way cheaper than replacements from Polaris. They offer several tread patterns, you should be able to find one that fits your needs. I am sure others will recommend other brands too.

I ended up getting a set of Carlisle - All Trail tires. They do look more like a truck "mud and snow" tire, than an ATV tire---but I think they will last longer on hard pack gravel and blacktop. Time will tell.
