need help with wheel/tires options

so been staring at the options for a few days now. DWT.190 wheel are $160 shipped, the itp .190 is $150 shipped 10x7 4/144 4+3+. which wheel is a better choice or stay stock wheel with kutters in the 11" size, problem here is that these wheels are far from perfect, but do the job with no leaks?

now for rear tires, whats the best bang for the buck tire in 6ply?

same questions for fronts?

I know a lot of people like the GBC XC Masters. I might give them a try once I use up my Kenda's.

I'd go with the DWT for the $10 differance. And what you save on the GBC's will help offset the cost of wheels. As long as being wider in the rear isn't a problem for you. Imo the 700xx looks alot better with 11" tire over the factory 9". Also adds traction, and helps slide better in corners. Idk about the itp, bit if you get the DWT Wheels be sure and get the correct lugs nuts as well.

so far the utv that rides with us has gotten through everything, so i should be good, my buddy has razr2s on his raptor 700 and went with an inch wider think hes around 48 or 50"maybe a trail or 2 that i might need to keep an eye for.

the trails we ride are pretty rocky unfortunately and already bent my RR rim when my tire cut and deflated, bent it back with a bottle jack looks ok, need to patch ,my tire for now and see. my z400 has kenda claws and never bent a rim or cut a tire, was pretty disappointed 2 hours into the ride to have that happen on 700xx, probably should of put more air in..

anyways, so the gbcs are a good bang for the buck rear tire? we ride some roads to get to the trails but mostly rocky twisty trails, some or the trails are wooded areas as or side of RR tracks still exploring our options.

whats the consensus for fronts? razr2 really that good of a tire?

thanks in advance guys. already have the 6pc skid arm kit from prm coming, and alba nerf bars, need to do wheels and tires then going to see if i can make my own sway bar for the rear.

The RZR 2s are great tires, but you can buy a pair of GBC'S for less than the price of one Rzr 2! The 22x10x7 GBC's are mid to low $40 dollar range. The 700xx shines in deep rutted out trails, where that Raptor won't follow.

discount tire will beat the lowest advertised price you find, and there are a supporting vendors on Hondaatvforums.net


From a quick search they've went up in price last I checked, around $5 on fronts and $10 on rears. Around $72.99 on rears, then what ever discount tire will knock off. Still better than half the price of a rzr.

There's a guy on facebook that just made a batch a little while ago, not sure if he was going to make another one or not. There is a 700xx group on facebook that you can post to if you want to find out.
