Hey Buggy News. I'm in the market for new tires for my 2009 Joyner 800 Sandviper

27x8-12 (Front)
27x11-12 (Rear)

I gotten quotes from dealers. No one sells 27x8-12 so I have to do 27x9-12.

I been looking at the Tusk Terrabite Radial Tires from Rockymtatv ($428)
27x9-12 and 27x11-12 (all Four)

Someone told I should consider running all the same STI Chicane RX Tires
26x10-12

What size and kind of tires everyone running?
Photos?

If you're looking at street tread, the 4/115mm pattern was used on some Honda cars. With the popularity of UTV's there are also more 14" and 15" rim offerings than in the past. This will open your choices to automotive tires as well as OHV. Auto tires will be heavier but will wear better and cost less.

Don't discredit A/T tires either...I'm running 245/70R16's.

My wheels are from a Suzuki Aerio I think. My friend is running stamped steelies from a Kia Spectra.

I ended up getting the tusk tires and love the look. Check out the photo.


So bummed that my axle nut snapped only driving it 20 miles on the new tires :(

if you are willing to change out your rim size to something more motor sports oriented... 4x115 is available at jegz and summit racing fo aftermarket rims.. backspacing is 4+3 or 4+4 though i am sure you can fit slightly narrower offset to run larger tires...

this has got to be my favorite tool/ website when i am looking for new tires (to bad it doesn't do atv tires yet)

https://tiresize.com/chart/

select your rim size, select how large a diameter tire you want and it will show you all the available dot and drag tires that will fit... and the conversion size to us standard measurement....
