    Picked up some new shoes for the ATV. Radial construction gives a great ride and they flat out hook up. I can go just about anywhere I want with a load of wood in tow now. Will make fall/winter cutting that much better.

    Not cheap I imagine. ATV tires (and everything ATV in general.... ) are some of the most overpriced items I've ever seen. ::P

    Makes a helluva difference tho. Especially if you were on balogna skins before. ;)

    I ended up scoring these used from someone who bought them new, took them to the mud bogs once and decided they didn't like them (don't "clean out" very good). These are not "mud" tires but I don't ride in anything that requires a snorkel so I should be fine. Ended up getting them for about half price of the lowest new price I could find...and they were still wicked expensive.;sick

    My old ones were bald on the front and not much better in the back. Snow was going to be an issue this winter. Heck, the yard was starting to become an issue with a full load of wood in tow.

    They look like Carlisle AT489's? A great tire indeed.

    Whoops, nope. Maxxis Big Horns. They're gonna do what you want for a long time. ;)

    I put atv tires one of my garden tractors - and actually had my local Discount Tire which we have used multiple times on the vehicles pricematch an online place and mount them. Got em for nearly half of what they normally charge! And being in the city, got some strange looks when I walked into the tire shop carrying in garden tractor tires! Looks good though Luke, I'm sure those will work out great. Wish I had one!
