    nope, Drive it like an old lady. Never been ridden on pavement and don't think its ever been over 60km/hr. Probably only been in 4x4 1/2 dozen times for short periods other than just shifting it in and out before a drive to test and lubricate everything.

    95% logging roads/skidder trail with a bit of mucky stuff and broken rock. Factory Maxis tires it came had next to no tread left. I should have changed them last year but only used the quad for 1 weekend of bear hunting and never got around to it.

    I just think the stock tires were soft, garbage tires and if I rode more or harder probably would have been changing them way sooner. There was 3/16" of tread remaining " on the center tread" of the rear and 1/4" on the fronts of my old rubber. Was ok putting down a skidder trail or logging road but any incline with loose gravel, any mud, any bare rock they were useless and had been like this for a couple years.

    From everything I've heard/read and the amount and style of riding I do, these new radial Traxion tires should be the ticket!

    I've run these for 3 maybe 4 years now and they are awesome. Haven't had a flat yet and tread is barely worn down. Good choice!

    I put a set Big Horns on. Last fall they surprised me at how well they handled the mud. I went down a few trails I shouldn't have. On gravel as expected, they are great. That same year I bought new truck tires, I forget which were more expensive. It was close.

    If yours do as well, you will be pretty happy.

    I have those same knock offs. but they aren't Traxxion , I think they are G Force or something? But I've had them 8 or 10 years and they haven't given me any grief.

    I ran a few sets of the Bighorns on the UTV, and frankly, too many torn, flat tires. They sucked. I did not enjoy the tread pattern either, and those Traxions are too close to the same pattern.

    I went to the EFX Moto MTC tires last summer. Way better of a tire, bit more aggressive, yet ride nice on the hard pack trails.
