Going to give these tires a chance and see what happens. Whos been running these tires and what is your thought on them?
Here is a pict of my front at 28.5". (But dont worry Chris, I 'm going to put a set of bighorns on 12" wheels for standby).

I love my dominators not as puncture prone as ya might think. I have rode with them at 4 psi front 6 psi rear and also at 10psi front 12 psi rear and had no puncture problems either way. not saying it wont happen next ride but so far its a good tire for me. I run the 30s

If you remember, I was waiting on my steering rack but gave up and was going to go on the ride with mine broke. I worked that friday night and when I got home from work (11:00pm)my new steering rack had came in (notice the beefed up tie-rod in the pict).I thought I could slap it on in about 30minutes but ran into a lot of issues (including the power going off) which ended up taking me all night. I got in bed around 5:30am. I didn't wake up untill 11am. Needless to say, I was pissed about it and really hated to miss the ride and meeting a few new folk. But one good thing is that my rzr is now in top shape and planning to ride on the 24th of this month with some good friends. Even got the wife to commit to this one. Anybody who wants to go are more than welcome to join us.

Not sure about the xp stock axles, but I'm pretty sure my rhino axles and joints will handle the 28.5" tires on the standard rzr. I could not tell any power difference at all when I switched from the 26.5 pitt bull rockers to the 28.5" dominators. So the power loss of the 28.5 dominators is the same as the 26.5 rockers and you've tried the rockers just to give you an idea of power loss on the S...but the dominators hook up ten times better.

I am also thinking about going with the 28.5 Dominators. I sure know I will never go back to Maxxis again. My old tires went through Brimstone with no issues at all. Hard to keep the new Maxxis's full of air just sitting in the driveway.Glad to hear other have had luck. I will have to reclutch mine, but I need to anyway.

You'll like em. Just like a bighorn but bigger. I kept my 30s and they are back on it. The ground clearance is awesome. They do wear faster though.

Dont tell ChrisC so we will have an advantage over his superior driving skills.
These tires are "HE-MAN TIRES" compared to regular bighorn "man tire"icon13

Got my 28.5's today. Look forward to getting them on and riding this weekend. Still have to go through the control arms and replace the HEIM spacers, install a clutch kit, and wire up my Trail Tech Voyager. We shall see if I ever have enough time to get it done.

At least this time it had nothing to do with the tires. We met some jeeps on 44 so we were trying to get out of the way. Jerry decided to back up a bank. He had the wheel cut when he hit the gas. The wheel turned quickly to the stop and he was still on the gas. It wouldn't have mattered what tire he had the CV broke because he was on the gas with the wheel cut all the way.

We did a rough measurement of these tires and they don't seem to be much difference in height than a 27" Bighorn. By the way, I don't think Jerry is very happy with the front tire width. He says it pushes too much in the curves. I heard him mention about going back to Bighorns on the front. Shocked

I have tried a lot of different tires between by 4 wheelers and side by sides. The only all purpose tires that have ever impressed me other than the Bighorns are Pit Bull Growlers. Granted, there are much better mud tires but I try to stay away from the mud holes. I only go through them if I have to.

Yep, the steering got away from me when backing up that bank. The wheels turned way to quick before I could let off the gas and it maxed out the cv and POW it broke. x20001 those jeeps! I lilke the dominator tire but like Roger said, when running fast and aggresive on the trails I had problems with the front pushing in the corners. 10" is just too wide on front for when it comes to handling at fast speeds --but they are great on the rocks. If I would have had 9" bighorns on front, I would have been on mkrazr butt as he was on badride on T 49. 572317

They dont come in a 9". It bothered me to have to get 10" because I knew it would hamper the handling but I figured I would cut back a notch and ride more slow and technical stuff. Well I figured wrong; It looks like I will be riding with the fast and furious through the winter cheers

But then again, the 10" tires will give me a good excuse to why I caint keep up Laughing

Tested my Dominators this past weekend. So far I like them. The size changes gives me a better ride and I do not get stuck as much. Went through a bunch of mud and never needed the winch. I do agree that they will wear faster with me riding 10 miles or so on the road to get to good trails. For now I give them 8 out of 10.
