New Atv rims

Recommended Posts

Looking for rims and tires. Is there any advantage to Aluminum rims other than looks? Arn't the steel ones tougher. I have a Green Honda Foreman and am looking for some 12" rims. I want something black. was just thinking about he ITP Delta Steel in Black. Good choice or not?

Go with any aluminum wheels from ITP in their SS Series (ss106,ss108,ss112,ss212), lifetime warranty, if you break it they'll replace it. Aluminum wheels are going to help save on weight as well.

Here is a 12" Black ITP SS108 with a 26" Maxxis Big Horn tire.

Aluminum save on weight and look good.They are usually more spendy than steel. If your not going with to big of a tire and don't want to rob to much power, steel will do fine.

Thanks, What is everyones favorite all around tire. I don't need a super aggressive mud tire I don't think prime use will be hunting and fishing. But would want something with better bite than stock. What is everyones favorite.

Fishy what model rims are those? I like the looks of them. Not too flashy for a hunting quad but looks real good at the same time!

Above the picture it says they're a SS108 made by ITP.

How are those Bighorns in snow? Anybody see the new Bighorns yet?

Big Horns work just fine in the snow, run with 2-3 lbs in the tires.

The 589's are nice tires, especially in the mud and snow, but a bit rough riding on dry ground. I really like Mudlite XTR's. Lots of traction, but a center rib for a smoother ride.

    • Chocolate peanut butter stout is back on tap at the Boathouse in Ely.    A little thinner than last year but still a treat!
    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
