Anybody have any thoughts? The Razrs are nice cause they come in a 11" rim size but the 2s looks awesome. How different are they performance wise?

The 2s are really beefy tires, almost too much. They are also pretty heavy. If I were to get a set of Razrs, it'd be the Ballance editions. They are very durable and still light weight. The biggest size they have is 20x11x9, though.

Here's my XX on Razr2's. I LOVE the extra ground clearance with 22's on the rear and 23's on the front. I can literally slide under my quad. My next tires will be ones on the bottom. Gonna try them out.

Hey how often do you get to dust that thing? You still ride anymore?

I've rode it one time with the new tires before it got a new motor. My snow video was on the new motor though. That's all I've rode.

the rear tires look similar to the holeshots tread pattern

All of the Razr II's are 3-5lbs heavier than the regular Razr.

I have ran both on my 450R's, they each have their good and bad points. The Razr 2's work good in softer terrain, areas where the lugs can dig down and get grip. The Razr's work better in the hard pack stuff. The Razr 2's wear faster. The biggest thing is the Razr2's are heavier, you can really feel the difference in the rotating weight when riding the quad. With the Razr's on, my 450R's rev faster due to less weight, because of this, I actually prefer the Razr's.

What size razr would work for the stock rear wheels? Is there a down side to just changing the rears? i ride a mix of sand arroyos, dunes, rocky trials etc. Will new tires help with hill racing, sandy arroyos?

I have standard Razr's not the 2's all around. 23x7x10 in the front and 22x10x11 rear. I ride mostly in the desert. They are wearing much better than the stock tires and I like the handling better. Life is good. :D

The larger diameter fronts steer better (less push). I am not sure I could explain the science of it but they eliminated a lot of push in mine. The larger diameter also rolls over obstacles easier. The only down side I heard of is the 23" fronts hit some nerf's.

More discussion on this.

I Don't know if the ITP wheels are any lighter than stock. I can tell you that on the front they have a wider offset than stock which has also reduced push.

Well my razr II and itp wheels came in. Keeping the fronts sending back the rears. at 4lbs a corner more on the back its just too much. May go to a razr on stock wheel or maybe a razr on another itp wheel? Can anyone weigh a rear razr on a stock wheel and a razr on an after market wheel please?

You're saying that the Razr 2's wear faster? I was wondering which would wear faster between the razr's and II's. The razr's tread depth seems way shorter than the II's though. Hard to believe... but hope it's true because I want to get the razrs.

Yes, the razr2's wear out faster. Even though the tread depth on the razr2's is greater, they don't last as long as the razr. The razr's aren't the greatest for wear either, but they do last longer then the razr2's, at least from what I have found.

Anyone know a site where there are 10" rims (thick, tough) decently priced? I thought for sure that there would be a decent tire selection now for an 11" rim. Kinda disappointing.
