    Default 4 wheel atv offroad or onroad?

    If you have a 4wheeler do you keep it off road or do you ride it onroad as well?

    Used to have a 4 wheeler when I loved in southeast ohio, I rode off road about 90% of the time, but rode it on pavement to the gas station to fill up. pavement eats the tires up, and you have significantly less grip depending on the tires.

    There was a big article in one of the major papers on this. I never thought about it but the tires are offroad rated only and are low psi just for that reason.

    yup. although you can just buy some cheap honduuuuuuh rims of craigslist and bolt them up depending on your four-wheelers lug pattern.

    (modification to wheels might be necessary, You may need a grinder with a couple of cutoff wheels)

    EDIT

    They will most likely be 4x156.

    any rims will work as long as they have that lug pattern

    I have 4 wheelers, They stay on the ranch, they get an occasional short run down the county road (gravel). Not legal as I don't have the on road lighting kit on either of mine. I just do some careful defensive driving when I'm on the county roads ! I know the owners manual on one of mine states clearly that it's not intended for use on pavement. That one has a 'live' rear axle - no diff., that would be "interesting" to drive on pavement ! Ken

    When the need arises, any tool or object within reach becomes a hammer.
