Just wanted to post up my recent upgrade and review of the tire and wheel setup I went with.

First off the GBC X-rex tires are a very aggressive tire. They pretty much look exactly like the maxxis tires but for a lot better price. They come in 4 ply and 6 ply ratings and also come in a Race version for the fronts which has a tighter tread pattern. I ended up getting the plain X-rex tires with the 6 ply rating. The are a bit on the heavy side like the maxxis Razr but you really don't notice. I went with 21x7-10 on the front and 20x11-10 on the rear. For me this setup seemed to be what I needed. Really helps with the front end push and allows for tighter cornering.

The ITP wheels are the T-9 Pro series that everyone is pretty much familiar with. They are the ones specifically for the 700xx. The front is 10-5 4/144 3+2 and the rear is 10x7 4/144 4+3. No clearance issues at all after you remove the mud scrapers.

The tire and wheel setup made the rear 50" wide and the front 49" wide, which is very reasonable for all kinds of different riding. Below are some pics just for reference. Sorry for the dirty quad and the cell phone pics.

Those look great. I like the geometry of the rear tires. I may try this set-up when I upgrade. If you don't mind, could you let us know where you got the tires and rims and what you paid for them? Tighter cornering is what I like to hear!

Thanks.
I got the tires from www.pureoffroad.com for $280 with very fast shipping and great customer service to add for ( Fronts $60/ea and Rears $80/ea.) by far the cheapest around and they had them in stock.The wheels are from rockymountainatv.com for $239.80 ( Fronts $53.95/ea. and Rears $65.95/ea.) plus I had a 10% coupon code which brought the total to $215.82 shipped. For some reason they are now listed for $57.95 and $69.95

looks awesome!!! any clearance issues with the 20" s
Thank you sir.
Only about 1" of ground clearance.

I think tbird88 runs these on the rear of his Trx700. I have them on a kids quad, they will probably last the rest of the life of the quad. Just remember if you get these tire's Discount Tire is a site sponsor, and they will beat anyone's best price!

they hold up awesome, went for the 6 ply for the puncture and flat tire resistants as you now i am a hardcore track and trail rider and i cant tell there heavier because the XX is a torque monster i could tell though when i put 6 ply on my 400 ex it had big 3 but i could still tell it was robbing power on the 400 youd need a built motor for it to pull them right. i went with 22 in rear and front i didnt lose no ground clearance with the 22s i might have gained an inch witch is good for trails:xx: it also turns better than the stockers i think there is less sidewall flexx and also the 700xx is so heavy the 6 ply is better:xx:

Perfect, I am looking to get a set ASAP so I will calling up discount tire tomorrow.
Thanks for the info, I loved the Razr2's but it was around $515 shipped for the set and GBC are around $350ish a set (at $165 cheaper I have to try them out), but they seem hard to find.

Dannyboy,
I really think you will like the tire choice. I have 3 sets of these, one set on my 700xx and one set on my 400ex. The third is mounted on wheels for spares but I never had to use them. Knock on wood but I have never had a flat. The traction is great for all conditions.

If for some reason you are having a hard time finding them, it might be because GBC changed the name of them. Here's an article that lists the new name.

Wow, That is sweet. I like the X-rex on a TRX sound better than the XC Master, but I wonder how much better the profile changes and compound upgrades will make it. And if the price will get driven up at the same time (many companies use re-brandings to get a higher price with minor improvements).

I agree on the price increase and the name, we kind of all knew it would happen as popular as they have got. One thing though is they will always be cheaper then the Razr otherwise they would have people searching for an alternative like they did for the Razr.
