XTR's now have Rim Guard Empty
PostSubject: XTR's now have Rim Guard   XTR's now have Rim Guard EmptySat Jan 30, 2010 1:44 am

The New XTR's have been redesigned . Thay now come with a Rim Guard
and a much thicker Side Wall..... cheers

Here is how it started, as most know i poped a new rear 27x11x12 XTR at winrock.
So i ordered 2 new ones for the rear. thay were wraped in plastic , but i did notest
the bead looked different. but was not sure. a buddy of mine notest the numbers were
different on the tire. I bought them a week ago and just put them in the garage. and never
paid attention. the old tire just say 27x11xR12. the new tire
says 27x11xR12-NHS82F. after looking i seen the side wall looked a lot thicker.
So i called ITP today and ask. he said thay redesigned the tire for a UTV.
before thay were just for ATV. now having rim guard and a much thicker side wall.
I was pleased.... cheers The old tire weighs 33 pounds. the new tire weighs 35 pounds.
So there is 2 more pounds of rubber in the side walls now.
bear with me. i am going to try to show the difference with pictures.
but it dont do the new tire justice til you see it in person.
the thick side wall makes it a hell of a lot harder to mount. even
with a tire machine.... Rolling Eyes I broke a sweat.... Smiles

Here we go.

This picture shows how deep the rim guard is. almost 1/2 inch deep.

in this one you can see how deep my finger go's in.
That sounded nice didn't it.. lol!

This is the old tire. it is not recessed at all

These 2 pictures show the difference in the lettering
on the old and new tire

Here is a good view of the Rim guard on the new tire.
Also all the way up to where it says extream tarrain radial.
the side wall is hard over 1/4 inch thick. and the whole side wall
is much thicker than the old tire. the old tire sidewall is very soft.

Here is a couple of pics after i mounted the tires.
You can see the tire sticks out passed the rim.... Eat
it takes about 40 PSI just to get them to pop on the bead.

and here he is all mounted up and ready to do some more
SAK riding.... thatsright

Well there you have it. the tire is much more beefy than the old one.
So i guess I will be staying with MAN TIRES...... cheers
I hope thay turn out to be very good. cause i really like the traction
of an XTR better than other tires i seen . So i will give it a go.
and now i don't have to wait around on PitBulls... Wink

Chris.... allright

Why change the tread design? I am super impressed with the XTRs. If Pitbull does not come on and put something out there, the XTR will be getting added to my buggy.

I like GBC tires, also like ITP tires. I cannot comment on the Pitbulls since I have not seen them in person, but I have been patiently waiting for them to hit the market.

Yes this puts the collar on pitt bulls, I never thought looking at the tread design they would work as good as xtrs in places we ride but i wanted the rim guard and stiffer sidewalls. So i will wait for real world reviews of the larger 26.5 pitt bulls to decide now what tires i will get next. But being 200.00 higher priced than XTR's will be hard to overcome.

I have not had any problems with my old XTR's yet but I know its only a matter of time . I would love to have 10's and 12's XTR's vs. 9's and 11's though. I was set on BH's but I may have changed my mind since these things are out now. Thanks ITP.

Chris, There is no need to get Pit bulls now. XTRs are now real MAN TARS!!!!!!

I was going to go to the GCBs just for that reason. However, it is all XTR now. This is great news as far as I am concerned. woo hoo

Yes. the guy at ITP told me the old tire was designed for a 550 pound
machine. The new tire is designed for a 1000 + pound machine... Eat

I have always liked the XTR's but I had a heck of a problem with cutting sidewalls and the area between the lugs on my Rhino. That is what sent me to Bighorns. Making the XTR's thicker has got to be an improvement. I like the mud performance of the XTR's better than the Bighorns.
