Tires on my polaris ranger have seen there better days, wanting to go with a 28'' any recommendations. Don't go in mud just field roads and lease in George West/Three Rivers area with lost of thorns so I'm familiar with the green slime.

I went to DCT. Funny thing, they replaced the front tires with the same turf tires. The new tires would not get through the tailgate opening of my pickup without rubbing. I let some air out of them. Haven't tried it since.

I'm not sure of the brand of tires that came on my Gator. They lasted 780 hours. They wouldn't even hold Slime anymore.

up I agree. Unfortunately they only go up to a 27" but you'll never have a flat.

They are pricy, but you wont have to replace them again. We put a set on dad's RTV about 8 years ago and haven't had a flat yet. They should last another 8+ years. There are some things to cheap out on, but tires aren't one of them (IMO at least). My FIL uses his ranger every single day (he's a rancher) and keeps putting the cheapy tires on it. He has to air them up every 2-3 days due to flats even with goop in the tires. Buy once, cry once.

Try TireJect instead of slime. Works just as well as far as I can tell and you don't get the tire balance issues.

I always run the type that came with the Ranger...Carlisle. Put in the Multi-Seal tire sealant. I keep a plug kit-string and mushroom along with a 12 volt tire pump in the Ranger. I run thru greasewood, mesquite and the other brush here and in West Texas. If I get bad leak that is causing tire to go down I put a plug in it. Been doing this for the 5 yrs in West Texas and 13 yrs in South Texas on ATV/UTV's. I have not put air in my tires since late winter and I run the Ranger everyday here. Those tires do have plugs in them now and have 440 hrs on them.

Drives me nuts that the front tires on my crew are different than the back tires, so keeping spares means keeping TWO spares... annoying :P

I bought the last one off of Amazon.. was the best price.. heh.
