Tires?

Recommended Posts

I am looking at a kingquad it comes with Dunlop as stock tires. What is recommended for this quad. I was thinking of upgrading to like a ITP tire. But not sure If I was better to keep the stocks. I don't know much about tires. All I know is a good all around tire for here in MN is what I would like. I won't be doing any mudding. Just hunting, fishing and yard/ field work.

ITP 589, Kenda Bearclaws, Mud Bugs, are a few to look at.Mudlights are popular, but wear fast.589's wear like iron, and are fairly common. I've got GBC Mudhogs on my Kingquad 700 and have had really like the tire.I've got 1200 miles on them,and they have barely worn.

You are probably getting Dunlap KT 121's in the front and KT 127's in the rear. Based on the type of riding you are talking about, I would run the tread off of them and then buy your ITP's. There is no reason to spend more money on a different set of tires. The Dunlaps are decent all-around tires, though they are only two-ply. If you need something specific, then spend the money. If not, put the money in the bank.

Personally, I will be looking for new tires sometime this year. I have always like ITP's, but I may try some Maxxix Bighorns for a change.

Good luck.

I personally wouldn't ride 10 feet on the stock tires. They're junk. I had a Vinson 500 with Dunlop KT's on it and had some bean stubble go through a tire within 1/4 mile. I immediately upgraded to the Kenda Bearclaws. No complaints with these tires in the stock size. They made a world of difference.

I bought them through a well known place in Cambridge (DK). Not sure that I can post the name here. But the initials should give it away. I found a better price somewhere else, but DK matched that price after I e-mailed them the ad.

Either way, any tire other than stock will be a good choice.

You must be talking about the DK in Rush City, not Cambridge? And DK is not the cheapest place around by far, but they claim to price match.

I thought that about the tires. I may just upgrade than to something better. I have looked at some of the above tires you guys mentioned and they do look by far better than the stock Dunlops. How are the Polaris PXT tires? Thanks for all of the help?

    • Good old Ebner's, they were there forever. I use to go there with my Dad right when they opened in the mornings back when I was like 12 years old, a long time ago! 😀   As far as Cabela's I'm just waiting for the day they change them all to BassPro shops!  😕
    • it's happening 
    • This team is for real, buckle up folks, it's gonna be a fun ride the rest of the season.
    • Mother Nature reminded some people in the north last weekend that winter was not quite finished. Pattison State Park received 3 inches of snow, but it did not last long as temperatures rebounded to the mid 50s after the storm. Memorial Day weekend has arrived and so has the green growth. A green up of vegetation and regular rains have lowered spring fire danger statewide. There have been reports of fox pups being seen, including this one near the Woodruff DNR Fish Hatchery. Fawns are also being seen. Remember keep wildlife wild and observe from a distance.Photo credit: Michelle WoodfordWater levels are still very high on the Wolf River system and a number of central Wisconsin lakes and local government officials have placed emergency slow no wake orders on some waters. Check with county or local officials before boating. .
    • Glad to hear the news for y’all down there. My bro was an Ebner’s customer;  I was MANY years ago when I frequented the area more.   Cabela’s?  There is no more Cabela’s. 😩
    • Here, until you get that shutter speed problem adjusted! 😄    
    • Up here in the Northwest Angle lines are tight and fish are biting! Water temps are warmer in the shallows at 50-52 degrees to upper 40’s in the main lake. Recent weather was not great but the fishing was. Some of the best action has been within a few miles of the lodge. Walleyes have been found anywhere from 3 to 30ft. 22-30ft with a jig and minnow is best during daylight hours.  Multiple trophy walleye were caught this week including a couple 28’s and one 31 inch.  The bite off of the dock late evening is really heating up and will produce limits. Come up soon to take advantage of great spring fishing!    Sunset Lodge
    • They have a good assortment of bobby garland crappie plastics, bunch of bass jigs and plastics, bunch of rapala's, VMC products!, bait, rods, reels and assortment of line.  They didn't have all the shelves filled yet but they are working on it with vendors or something like that...Good Luck!
    • I'll have to check it out as I drive through there quite a bit.  I'm with you on the Cabelas thing.  Its not the same as it use to be and I just don't like shopping there anymore.  I could spend hours in baits shops sometimes and probably spend a little too much too haha!  There's just something about buying gear from a real bait & tackle shop that I really enjoy.
    • Wow that's sickening.  The netting needs to stop.  This isn't the 1800's anymore.
