Does anyone know if the stock tires are rated as a 4-ply or a 6-ply?

4-ply front and 6-ply rear according to dunlop's website. Of course this is "rated" which could mean an actual of 2 and 4 respectively, I'm still searching thou.

* found it! all dunlop radials are 4-ply (2 bodyplies+ 2 belts) *

Nice work. The one listed with Rocky Mountain is rated as a 6-ply. So do you think that it a different tire?

My guess since Dunlop rates them as 6-ply it's the same exact tire. Rated at 6-ply but truly only 4-ply. The rating is a tires "resistence" to punctures.

Well then, they suck. I hope that the Razr's don't cost as much as Chrisj said.

Another Tire option could be to switch to a set of ITP C-Series cast aluminum 12" wheels and use 23" AT489 from carlisle. While the 489's may not be greatest tire, they are affordable and available. Just don't forget the Slime. The stock Maxxis tires from a Wolverine 450 are 23" on 12" rims and are radials.

Nice, more options are better. I am seriously considering going to a 12" rim and 23" tires when it comes time to replace mine. The larger diameter tire should roll smoother.

Is that really an issue on the XX?

I guess that depends on where you ride, in the sand you would never notice but on a rock and root riddled trail it would help some. The desert racers (like Baja) use the larger tire for the same reason, every little bit helps.
