Buddy has them on his mule, hasn't had a puncture since he put them on two years ago. I wish they made car tires like them.

I think best money you could spend on a utv

They are worth the money. I never had a hole in one. My stock tires looked liked a porcupine with all the plugs.

You need to get whatever stock tires that came on Stxranchmans Ranger. According to him they are more durable than Kevlar. rolleyes

I bought some last spring so this is my first season with them. I still had them slimmed.

have run them for years. we are in deep south texas with thorns, staubs, etc. I use slime too.

several thoughts. There are three sizes - 25, 26, and 27's. The 25 and 27's are more aggressive tread - little rougher riding but much more rubber and tread on them. The 26's are not as thick or aggressive tread but smoother riding. If you are using for hunting mainly then the 25 or 27 are the choice. Only difference in those two are that the 27's are an inch higher clearance. I prefer the 27's.

I suggest calling the Essex folks - they are in Dallas area and the owner is very very knowledgeable and helpful. Describe to him what your use is and get his input.

Overall they have saved us lots of headaches -

x2. Like TLK said, there are 3 different sizes with the 25s and 27s being the more aggressive. They are extremely rough due to the thick sidewalls, but we aired them down to around 10 psi and they are much more manageable.

We have had our set of the 25" on 2 different Kubota RTV's and they've held up to everything we've put them through. Cactus, mesquites, rocks, sand...you name it and I put it through it. (just don't tell pops roflmao) Only got it stuck once, and that was due to high centering it, not the tires fault.

I've had the same set of Essex tires on my Rhino for a few years and couldn't be happier with them.

I have them on 2 polaris' and a mule. I have literally ran one flat over 4 miles back to camp. Never put air in them and they look like a pin cushion full of thorns. I wouldn't own a UTV or ATV without them.

Run them around Sanderson/Dryden working and hunting. Tough, durable, without equal and they ride and drive like crap. Probably worth the bad ride.
