Which tires break loose?

Still running the stocker's, they are about 1/2 gone, they still hook up so well that even the 11/16ths L8ton Sway wasnt enough to get it to drift on wet grass... Its driving me crazy, only surface it will drift on is gravel and even then it tries to lift the front so 1/2 the time it just pushes forward with the wheels turned. Stock tires wont get it out of my driveway if theres snow, so im going nuts over here lol. my 83 atc200e drifts better. I've even been pondering lawn mower tires for a reduction in traction to give it the ability to drift on surfaces other than gravel lol.

I agree with tbird. I still have stock tires on mine and the L8ton sway bar. I love the stock tires, probably one of the few who does. I ride in snow, sand, loose dirt, hard pack, and mountain trails that are rocky and root covered. I have no problems with traction or sliding. But I do adjust my tire pressure depending on the terrain.

I run stock tires with 1" Woody`s gold digger carbide snowmobile studs in winter. But have ridden them in the summer, no problem getting it to drift. (stock swaybar and I`m 220# with gear) I`ll tell you what, it don't slide out on wet root`s! When I first installed the diggers I had too much traction on the ice, and had to cut some of the carbides off. (front end push) Next time I`ll just put diggers in the front also.

Put wider tyres on the rear and drifting will become easier ..

Swamp Foxes

I just ordered the 24/10/11 Swamp Foxes, I searched but couldn`t find any pics. Does anyone run them, and what do you think of them? They kind of look like the old D/C Spider Trac`s I had on my 88 250r. Should have never sold that! Bought new off showroom floor at age 16. Still kicking my @#% to this day!
