Yup ..truely was looking for a second set of stock rims to have spares for both bikes, and the new tires happened to come with 'em.
I'll wear through them pretty quickly, and be ready for the B'Horns soon enough.
Cryin' shame nobody here has an opinion....Hah!!! tooooo easy to get a serious rise outta yous guys...

|jbgill06||Every tire has a place. Right now, my stock tires are back-up tires in case I have a failure of either my Bighorns or my Mudlites. I actually have 3 sets of stock Rincon tires and rims. My dad uses one set on his Rancher 420AT for the summer, because he wanted a set of stock aluminum rims. Found them for $150 and they came with nearly new tires. I ran my original stock tires until they were bald, which if you have ever seen Rincon stock Ohatsu/Dunlaps it doesn't take long to wear them out. On most machines, in average conditions, most stock tires do good. They are light, and although 2ply and prone to slicing, they help absorb bumps better than stock tires. In dry conditions, where you do not require an aggressive tire, makes stock tires a good choice.|

|lop3r1||here's something to consider when dropping big bucks on aftermarket tires...you gotta drop the big bucks!!! stockers are only temporary. they are only there to get you to your house. they suck after the 1st ride.|

|chrisb||I had stocks for 2 yrs and hated them but just wanted to pay for my quad first, I finally had a chance to ride mine today with my new sti black diamond xtr and mud where I use to have to keep it floored and rock it in 4wd. Today I was 1/4 throttle 2wd and walked right out with no problems. I was also really impressed how much more stable the quad is with stronger side walls. A world of difference|

|temagamiarearider||Ive never had good luck with stock tires on my bikes.... moreso my canam than my honda. I am NOT a fan of ANY stock tires. the intended use should dictate the tire you require and not price in my opinion. if its light duty riding, the stockers will do the job cheapest and best. if you ride off road, they will not be reliable in the end. a 6ply tire minimum is required for durability off roading.|
