I figured we needed a tires and wheels reference, so heres what I have.

These are my 27" Bighorns. They tend to run an inch larger than stated by the factory and are a great all purpose tire for the trails, are decent in the sand and OK in the mud. They are mounted on ITP T7 12" Beadlocks.

These are 28" x 12" Gorilla Silverbacks, mounted on 12" Polaris Crusher rims. They are wicked in the mud, and aweful on the trail. They shake the machine real bad at slow speeds.

Heres my 28" Mud Lights, on 12" ITP Type 5s. They do pretty good in the mud, but not as good as Pure mud tires like the Silverbacks or Outlaws. They are a good combonation tire if you like to go mudding and trail riding, as the design is a lot smoother on the trails than a dedicated mud tire is.

I have the 27" Big Horns too. I really notice the difference when rock climbing and plowing snow. Great tires!

I'm getting ready to try a set of these Pitbull Rockers.They are getting a lot of good write-ups and I 've heard some great feedback on them. They look to be a very good all-around tire and look like they will work VERY well.

Racing a GNCC is a great time, UTVs race for an hour. Most of the tracks were about 5-6 mile laps. Your in a team( driver,and Pass), it is rough on a UTV. The race in PA last year we broke $1000 worth of parts between two rhinos. Youtube has some pretty good vids.

Curt your ranger would be a very tight fit for Gncc tracks, 56" on a rhino was tight.

I was afraid you would say that, mine is about 68" wide. Is it a between the trees kind of issue?

yes they set it up for 60" or less the way most of it looked. The rzrs had some spots they were stuck between trees. On a different note Curt how do like your shocks from racertech? I just ordered springs for my rzr.

I actually have mt stock shocks right now. I do have progressive springs from Racer Tech on them, and it makes a big difference.
