I ride in the desert mostly and I saw a XP900 with some tires that didnt the knobs on it like the Big Horns. I was wondering if anyone knew of a good tire for Baja 500 style racing?

Thanks

Dennis

I think independent test after test has shown the GBC Mongrel ATV/UTV , products new home is probably one the best all around Desert tire out there these days...we run them in all of our Best In The Desert races with incredible results..

I'm running 30s (non mongrels) and I think Michael is too.
Been running 28's as we were worried about enough HP to get enough top speed...we were SO wrong about that...wanted to wear them out before moving over to the 30's... now that we have the Method wheels arriving shortly we will mount the 30's.

I thought wrong...lol. You will live the 30s! It was the biggest thing I was scared of on my build and probably one of the things I like the most.

Awesome!!! like I said...thought we'd wait till the 28's wear out...but they aren't done yet with over 600 race miles on them.. I think they have another 600 miles on em at this rate...but we need the 30's for the Vegas to Reno in August.

If you need help for V2R let me know, we'll help if you need it.

OP - go 30s and don't look back. One thing that I do have a slight issue is my tires slightly rubs the front of my rear fender. My bighorns measure just a fuzz over 29" and the Mongrels should be a full 30". Keep that in mind cause the sound of the rub will drive you nuts.

Check out the STI Rocktane XD tires. They are a super tough 8 ply rated radial tire. We tested them all week at Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks and they were awesome.

Here is Mark's RZR4 900 XP on Hells Gate.



They are Jon Crowley's pick as the best 30 inch tire in his 30 inch tire test. He took 2nd at this years King of the Hammers race.

We have them in stock ready to ship. Give us a call if we can be of assistance.

I run a 4+3 with mine and love it. It's wide though and math wise it doesn't really add up. I'm 69" outside to outside. I can get you setup with wheels and tires if you'd like and can give you a crazy price on the Mongrels if you go that route.

Do the 30" mongrels fit on the stock suspension without rubbing?
