Tire/Wheel Suggestions

Want to upgrade the tires/wheels on my '07 Foreman 500 pretty soon, kind of a to me-from me gift for my birthday. Any suggestions as to what to buy? I use the quad mainly in trails with occasional sand and mud. Also use it for snowplowing my driveway and a few others. Quad is all stock right now except minor cosmetic mods. Thanks for the help!

If your happy with the stock tires try these out they are the Maxxis Bighorns. They work great on trails, rocks and are "ok" in mud. I run the Mud bugs and ITP 589's but they are for more muddy terrain.





You cant go wrong with ITP they are awesome wheels and the price is good too!!!

Any side shots? I think my friend has the exact same wheels/tires on his Kawi Brute Force.

I think I am going to go with the Mudlite XTR's on ITP series 108 wheels. They are all black with a chrome center cap and simulated beadlocks around the edge.

Thanks for the offer on your 28's, but thats a little more extreme than I need.

For some reason, I keep hearing that... You'll like the XTR's. They wear pretty smooth, last awhile, aren't too aggressive, but aggressive enough.
