Dominators work great no complaints. Best all-terrain tire to put on a UTV in my opinion due to having a lil more height over the bighorn. Will post up soon on how the Kevlar's work.

I run the Gear One billet rack and have no problem steering even with my 30" mud setup.

Make sure there's no slop in the steering. Even a TINY bit I noticed a dramatic difference in steering when tightened.

Go for it! Just got back from the first trail ride since putting the PS unit on. Night and Day!!!! The tight sections were a breeze. The steering was effortless. Much more fun! Life's too short, just get'er done. You'll be glad you did.

Heres my 2011 S with some 30's Ive been playing with lately...

So far I really like them. I really dont like to play in the mud so they are 30x9.5x15 all terrains. They seem to work real good everywhere Ive had them so far...

15x7 Diesel M12 wheels...






And 1 more with the sand setup...lol

Where do you go that those tires do any good ? I guess some dry rocks ?

It seems the ATs would be spinning all the time, even on a normal trail ride

Had my RZR out yesterday after a night of drizzle and even with Big Horns I was spinning them under WOT or whenever I got on it again.

Lots of dezert and rocks...
Ive had it on normal mountain trails and they worked fine.
Lots of rutted wet trails with tree roots etc...
They probably spin more than the bighorns but it still went right up. The ground clearance over stock is awesome.... Stuff I was getting hung up on before is now not an issue.

I thought the same thing until I tried them out.

Interesting, change the clutch for them?

I`ll have to give it a shot in the future, have some old take-offs someplace around here

The clutch isnt stock. New springs ans STM adjustable weights.
I run it the same for these as I do with the paddles.
The Turbo mandated clutch mods.
I wanted KM2's but I got these for almost nothing with 300 miles on them.
I figured I would try them out and then re-sell when I got the BFG's. After running them I decided they could stay.

Any idea how much this setup weighs per corner?

No idea on the weight. They dont feel all that much heavier than the 26" Bighorns on the stock steel wheels. At least the rears.

Ive beat on it and not broke anything yet but Ive got the 2010 larger CV's and Sommers Bros axles.
I also pay attention to how much the fronts are turned compared to how much throttle etc...

It seems to have enough traction to move it up the trail. I think any more may just look cooler and be harder on parts.

since I dont know much about SxS, this may be a newbie question, but are there different SxS bolt patterns or are they universal?

On the larger wheels (14-15") are those for a SxS or for a light truck (assuming something like a swamper or KM2 is being used) If so, what about bolt pattern? Adapters or ??

seems like a light truck wheel and a 29 - 31" tire is asking an awful lot of SxS components.

I do like the pic of the one next to the Sammi though, just talking to a buddy about that a while back and his RZR is not far from his Sidekick/Tracker either...

We were kicking around the idea of building one from sammi parts (solid rear axle and IFS) using bike or sled engine mated to zuki case, etc) It will probably never come to life, since he has a very well built RZR that never gets used unless I take it out and beat on it some

Different brands, have different patterns. The wheels will say which brand they work for.

30" mud terrains on mine. they are stiff, but work well. looking to do stauns so i can run them a lot lower.



3 trail rides so far, nothing broken yet (gorilla axles all around)
