PostSubject: New Wheels & Tires!   Thu Mar 01, 2012 3:39 am

After running ITP Mudlites on everything I rode for 7yrs, I have decided to get out of the mud tires and try something different. I have been running 30" ITP Mudlites for a little while now on the RZR with no problems, but its honestly more tire than I need. I decided to drop down a size or two on tires this time. I went with 15 x 7" MSA M12 Diesel black wheels with 28 x 10" EFX Moto MTC tires. The tires are so smooth and my clutch setup works a little better with this size tire. Can't wait to try them out. If anyone is interested, I have a complete 30" wheel and tire kit posted in the For Sale section.

Thanks for looking, ERIC!

Thanks, man! Its crazy how wheels and tires can change the whole look completely. I never cared much for black wheels, but I really liked these when they came out. Its growing on me.

The 15" setup runs a little under $1,100 and the 14" setup runs a little under $900.

Man, that thing looks great with those wheels. I too want to hear how the tires perform. I have been looking at them in the 14" setup.

Few new pics:









Thanks for the comments! I will update my thoughts on the tires after the first ride experience. Should be interesting to see how they do after all the rain.

It is a very trick setup from PU-Products in California. The setup is called the RZ-RAX system. It consists of the side boxes, two mounts for the fuel jugs and cooler, 2 five gallon fuel jugs, and a 24 can off road cooler. Perfect setup for me and the wife.

Well after the first ride with the new wheels and tires this past Saturday at Royal Blue, I must say I am very pleased with the setup. The tires are very smooth on hard pack. They performed very well in rock and pulled good through fairly thick mud. The tires clean out very well and don't seem to pack up. Honestly they will sling mud almost as good as my big Mudlite XXLs did. Again, I am very impressed with the tires. They are a little heavy, but I have the RZR clutched for the 28"s and it pulled them with plenty of power all day. I am used to strictly mud tires, but I will never have another set on my ride after the way these tires performed. Now, I can't say how they are compared to a Big Horn cause I never tired them, but the EFX Moto MTC did excellent in all conditions.

Thanks, bud. I don't think you will be disappointed in these tires. They did what I expected from them. I too try to stay away from mud or deep mud anyway. Only time that Im in it is when its part of the trail. But with all the rain lately, Royal Blue was quite a bit muddy and the water crossings were fairly deep. In my personal opinion, the wheels and tires gave me the perfect setup that I was looking for.

Welcome! I looked and looked for reviews of these tires after I saw the first set. Couldn't find anything in great detail. They looked like they would be a great tire, so I took a chance. I love them and now I can give a better review as I put more miles on them. I will keep posted.
