    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

    Guy down the road from me actually swaps wheels out depending on what he is doing with his quad. He has a set of what I assume are golf cart tires that spend a lot of time on it.

    0907131825b.jpg 0907131824.jpg Do a little riding with Phantom Jr. "Old School" 88' Honda trx250R that I put a Bigbore 350 cylinder on and stroked the crank +4mm. Put the brand new technology APT Smartcarb for 2 strokes on it also. No one would ever know this thing is 26 years old and still keeping up with the modern big dogs.

    Yeah its been totally gone through a couple times in its life. Ive had it almost 10 years now. they are definitely a unique machine only made 4 years and there are actually 2 forums on the internet dedicated to this machine alone. They still bring anywhere from $1500 to 10k. If you find one cheaper than a $1000 and it has an engine its a steal.
