Our son is shopping for a set of tires for his Honda. Any brands to avoid, or brands recommended?

We have Maxxis Bighorns on ours and they’ve been great on the trail and daily doing chores. Would buy them again.

I'm running these Sedona Ripsaws. We have lots of sharp rocks and I wanted big heavy blocks for treads to help prevent cuts. So far they've been great for that. I haven't had them in deep snow to know how they work there.

Maxxis, ITP, Kenda, and Titan are all brands that I have used and trust. What kind of riding does your son partake in, this will point us in the right direction for recommendations. I recently swapped my Mudlie XTR's out for a set of Maxxis Mud Bugs and could not be happier with their performance.

I've had a couple sets of Greenball Dirt Devils. No complaints.

If you're buying online, Rocky Mtn ATV is great. I've ordered from them several times and each time they shipped within 24 hrs, usually same day if you order before noon. I've never had a need to try their customer svc but I've heard it's good.

I put a set of Kenda Bearclaws on my Foreman last summer and have been very happy with them. Did great during hunting season and has done all the chores around home since.

The mines here run Swamp foxes. Very durable, loads of traction, not ideal for hard pack roads at high speeds

Thanks folks, our son read the comments here, and looked other places. He ordered the IPA tires, and mounted them last night. [Linked Image][Linked Image]

Just put a new set of tires on my Yamaha Kodiak 450 and after a lot of research I chose Maxxis Bighorns. The 6-ply sidewall and the reviews that indicated they rode well on hard pack trails/2-track roads, plus having acceptable performance in mud made my decision.

Same that I put on my Honda Foreman. They're great as far as I'm concerned.


It ain't my fault.

Do you guys just bring your tires and rims into the local tire shop and have them switched out after you get the new ones?

That's what I did. Swapping them yourself isn't as much fun as it sounds if you don't have the equipment.

I took them in. I've got a Northern Tool manual machine and it does regular tires okay but those atv tires that had been seated for 15 years were a real biotch to try and break the beads.
