Default Black Diamond xtr's

Just bit the bullet and ordered a set. 25's. The reviews are all good and my super grips are starting to chunk pretty bad. Who all is running these and what do you think? The riding here is really rocky, rutted, and steep with a lot of mud thrown in. I'm expecting these to work pretty well.

I run them in middle TN and they're a great tire for our various terrain. Couldn't be happier.

Glad to hear that..We run a lot of rock but still a lot of mud to get through. I can't wait to get them mounted up and go for a good ride. 2 1/2 lbs seem to be what the atvers are running, what about you tplane2?

I put 1500 miles on mine this year and there a good tire for the money. I stayed with 25" tires also and it did drop top end a bit. The tires still look new so i think they will last a very long time. Good in mud hard trails and did good in sand.

I love mine.

They have just over 1500 miles on them and the fronts show a little wear but my old Rubicon is still in 4-wd.

They are mounted on HD1 Slik-Kote wheels from STI and love those too.

I have beat the ever living F--k out of these tires and they love it - in fact they laugh at me.

I strongly recommend running these tires on your ATV at 2.5 psi.

(disclaimer - they were new when I took that picture - they probably only a few hundred miles on them)

Thanks for replying rubiranch. Your review and videos on youtube were a big help in making this decision. The Rancher is pretty light, I'm not...265lbs. I think 2 1/2 will be a good starting point for me. I never ran much more than that in the SG's. 3.5 front and 3 back seemed to get them to bite the rocks better. I'm looking forward to giving these a try. I'll put some pics up next week. Rich
