BUYER’S GUIDE: BUDGET SPORT & UTILITY TRAIL TIRES

 
(10/7/2009)
New rubber for $100 and under.

For typical trail tires, the sizes run from 20x10-9 in the rear to 21 or 22x7-10 up front for sport quads. This spec is what comes stock on nearly every quad except, of course, the track-ready machines like Suzuki’s LT-R450, KTM’s SX machines and Can-Am’s DS450XMX.
On the utility or 4x4 side of things, the range is 25x9-12s or 26x9-14 up front and 25x10 or 11-12s to 26x11-14s in the rear. Some smaller (under 450cc) machines may even use a 24x12 setup.
The question is, where do you go when you need to replace your worn-out stock tires? Money is tight, and you don’t need to run the same set of meats as the top pros. We gathered specs on the most popular budget treads for the sport and utility trail market, and listed them in some easy-to-compare charts to help make that decision.
