I need to replace the tires on my son's recon. I'd like to stick w/ stock sizes. I'm thinking Bear Claws or Dirt devils with some other tire for the front. It seems like a waste to put aggressive tires on the front of a 2 wheel drive machine. Any thoughts???

I put the Bearclaws on the back of my kids 300 Foretrax 2wd and the Kenda Front Max on the front and it is a pretty good combination.

I put stock size AMS Swamp Fox tires on front and back on my recon. I like my tires to match.

Putting the same tires on the front not only looks better but it helps with steering in the mud. I have pics with kids recon with swampfox tires.

Check out interco swamp lite tires. Just put a set on my son's recon and they look great and so far they really do a good job not only in mud but everywhere he has ridden.

Check out Interco Swamp Lite tires. Just put some on my son's recon and they do great. Look at ATV DIRECT web site. Got them shipped to my door foe less than $230. By the way, the pics that you see online don't do these tires justice. They look great in person.

I would look into Interco Swamp Lites. I am going to buy a set for my front tires.
