I have a 2020 X3 and purchased a set of 15” MSA wheels and was wondering if anyone had any information on the Pro Armor sand tires or a better brand I should be looking at. I can get them in 30” or 32”. Thanks!

I have a 2020 xrs with beadlock wheels, my pro Armor tires are 30” but are taller then my 30” stock big horns, the fronts are 8lbs lighter then the stock wheels and the rears are 2lbs heavier.
I done dune a lot so I didn’t want to have a lot of money in sand tires, they work fine for me but there are better tires out there

Polaris owns Pro Armor....

They are a heavy molded tire, even if you're only going a few times a year, the CST is a better tire. If you go a lot, and you have a bigger budget, Skats.

Thanks! I was starting to lean that way from what I read but thought Pro Armor might be better.

I have them, other than being tough for what's needed for the Oregon Dunes with roots and branches they are way too heavy, very stiff, and way too much paddle.
I believe they are one of the main reasons I go through a belt every 100-120 miles besides needing clutch work. Now that I put in a STM clutch and still have the tires we'll see.
I most likely with go with STU 1300 or SS360's soon. Skats would be great but not out here, I'd have them torn up quick.

If it were between Pro Armor and CST? go CST.

I was thinking the SS360 at first but read the CST were better for the money but I’m just looking for the best all around. I do plan on adding an intercooler and have it retuned but it’s already plenty fast enough compared to my banshee. 😂

The ss360 worked really well for me. I got them on STI HD6 wheels for a great price. I used them on two dune trips an had no complaints on performance. My only issue was the weight, but they held up great. Just sold them and they looked basically brand new.

If I may ask -
You sold them due to getting something else or not hitting the dunes anymore?

That's why I like the Rocky mountain ATV skats. They are not buffed on the sidewalls. I have probably 1,000 miles in the Oregon dunes with them and they are running strong. Only the paddles are getting rounded from driving on pavement.

Do you run hard and fast through the narrow ATV side trails with tree roots and branches and no punctures or mostly stay on the open dunes?
I know I hit a few each time I'm on them and thank goodness for tree kickers, I've had to straighten them a couple times....

What size and wheels are you running?

I'm running 30x11x14 cause my fifth wheel is too narrow. Yeah we run all over. I don't do tight tree shoots on the x3 (save that for the raptor) but do run through a lot of tight trails. At all 3 sets of dunes. I'm careful when I see roots and such. I'm sure if you tear it up thru every tight trail, you can blow any tire haha.
