I wouldn't want to run a 25", It would be very hard to do controlled slides and all. The taller tire will give you more unwanted body roll from the soft sidewall srtructure. Last your gearing will be screwed
next time ur in the grocery store check out the neew dirt wheels... theres an article in there about puttin oversize tires on quads... and monster truck size suspension... i didnt even know ppl did that lol
i put some bridgestone dirt hooks in 24x9x11, they look tall. they feel tall. they chew like a mother* but you cant slide it. its awesome for climbing hills and amazing in mud, but i cant drift it around the track AT ALL. im gonna pick up a set of stock tires for the track and sand days, and kep the dirt hooks for mud, as swan hills has a ton of it. so im thinking replace with stock tires.. or wait til ITP 10" prices come down a bit. to get ordered to my local tire shop its $120 a piece for the rims
They're on a 10" wheel in that picture. There's another picture of his quad on this site somewhere but I can't find it. Wish I knew what wheel he put them on so I knew the offset. Maybe there is only one wheel - i'm not sure.
I have a question relating to tires but not necessarily 25" tires. I road my friends kfx450 today and noticed that when I did slow speed turns that the turning radius was considerbly smaller. What can I change on my 700xx that will have the greatest effect on the turning radius? Someone told me "tires" in one of the other forums, but it seems like maybe suspension or A arms would have a part in decreasing the turning radius. I do a lot of trail riding, so this is most important to me right now. Any and all thoughts will be appreciated.
Wider front a-arms for low speed turning and high speed cornering stability.
Keep in mind that your front width is smaller than your rear *and* the tires are narrower. They have less "pull" or leverage than your rears. So a wider front would give the front tires more leverage over the rears. (not greater leverage, just more)
