I bought a new 2020 Maverick X3 Max Base 64" and looking to upgrade wheels and tires. I'm sure there may be other threads discussing this, but I'd like to get current info from some of you who have upgraded. Should I go with 14" or 15" wheels and 30" or 32" tires? I would go with 5.2 offset from what I have read. I have set the suspension to the Fox Tune settings. I will be riding many terrains as will be traveling all over USA chasing adventures. Any photos you have of your X3 showing wheel/tire with these setups would be appreciated. Thanks!

Might be helpful if you'd describe the range of "many terrains" planned? From that, choose tire type best suited within sizes available. Online searches show fewer brands and sizes are available in 15" than the more common 14" wheel diameter. Also, whether DOT approved for highway use if a selection constraint.

Not X3 however for example, my buddy and I very enjoyed the Maxxis Coronado (non DOT) on our former 50" class MavT machines whereas our 64" class MavS XRC are OEM equipped with Maxxis Liberty 30x10-14. Frankly, we don't like Liberty for the loose rocky terrain we frequent in AZ's higher elev mtns. When those wear out (likely sooner), we'll switch to Coronado available in same OEM size. Since Coronado aren't commonly found, I contacted Maxxis to determine if being discontinued with subsequent reply negative and that tires are available in regional distribution warehouse inventory. Point being, don't settle for what others use (or what's in local stock) unless best overall for your intended terrain.

I've been running 32x10R-15 Tensor Regulator tires for the last 2 years with solid results on the trails in AZ and UT. They are a solid all-terrain tire depending on what your needs are. I use Method MR409 wheel with a patented bead hump technology in 15x7 5+2 on my stock RZR 4 1000 XP.

If you go with 32's I recommend going with 15 inch wheels, if you go with 30's the 30 inch size is best. A few tires that you may want to check out are the Tensors, Rage Mohave or the BFG KM3, depending on your terrain.

Please let us know if we can help.

^^^ Thinking you meant "14".

Also, what type of AZ/UT terrain do you typically run those Tensor Regulators? As I stated in post #3, my buddy and I are currently running OEM Maxxis Liberty on our MavS XRC machines and do not like them on loose terrain. Claimed to work well in rocks and hardpack, however we find them lacking directional steering control - even kept aired down to 8/10 psi. Tensors might be a worthwhile alternative to Maxxis Coronado we used with much success on our former MavT 50" machines.

Yes I did I mean 14” thanks for pointing that out. My car came with the Liberty’s and they did fine in the AZ desert and rocks. The Tensor has proven to be a solid choice for all conditions I currently ride in. I have not experienced any of the issues you describe in your post. They have great side bite which helps in uphill, rutted trails and works nicely in the soft sand washes as well.

I ride in very rocky terrain in AZ, sometimes loose but most of AZ is rocky. In UT I rock crawl at Sand Hollow State Park and Moab. The Tensors Regulators have proven themselves over and over for their toughness and traction.









Another thing that is nice about the Tensors they are DOT approved and ride smooth on the road.
