Pitbull tire review,Brimstone Empty
PostSubject: Pitbull tire review,Brimstone   Pitbull tire review,Brimstone EmptyTue Apr 17, 2012 1:49 pm

After the Brimstone ride, the first ride on my new Pitbull Rocker uber XOR radials;
POSITIVES:
1. These tires Grip like glue
2. These tires are tough! I hit the rocks harder than I ever have before and no leaks,rips or tears at all
3. Though substantially heavier than the stock tires they replaced there was very little power loss, when the teryx was running right.
4. The wider tires provided real stability
5. very smooth ride on hardpack,comfortable.
6. They look Bitcnin'

CONS:
1. I put too wide a tire on the front, experienced some rubbing will have to replace with more narrow or trim some more plastic from "firewall"area.
2. Additional confidencefrom excellent traction made me go places I probablly should'nt have gone.
3. ref. Item 2. Found out my winch works great but does drain my battery severly.

SUMMARY:
I am extremely satisfied with the pitbulls and feel like they were the right choice for me. I was surprised at how smoot a ride they delivered and that they are quiet even on blacktop. I chose to put 11" wide units on both front and back which makes me pretty wide and caused the aforementioned rubbing, my fault not the tires.Additionally the wheels required adapters to fit properly this added 1 3/4" per side=very stable but quite wide when riding the narrow twisty trails we were on.

Stealth ran across a great deal on a set of pitbulls, I wish now
that I would have picked them up. I hate to pay that kind of
money for a new set and then not like them.

They are made of oil/gold . These set me back around $600.00 for (4} 26.5 x 11-12R Check with Matthew at ATV outfitters for current prices and available sizes. I am not in a position physically to risk having a flat on the trail so the extra expense of the toughest tire I could find is justified

I can see how they might, the lugs really stick out. But I spun the tires pretty severely on the trail 90 rocks and didn't so much as scuff them no lug damage at all. The only lug problem I could forsee is maybe running them hard on blacktop until the tires over-heated. I'm basing that on past experience with rear knobby damage on dirt bikes. I seriously over cooked the rear tire on my KX-500 and the tire lugs began to chunk off bits of lug. That bike was terrible on rear tires though I generally put three rear tires on it per year and as far as I can rember it was still running the stock front tire when my wife sold the bike. (in my hospital room to a friendof mine after my last dirt bike accident)

~1500 miles on my Pitbulls and they have lost a lot of grip. Going forward is no problem at all but backing up an a slight incline and they are terrible. All the grooves on top of the lugs are worn flat. All in all I like the tire but is disappointed in the wear factor.
