ITP TERRA HOOK TIRES

-- Testing traditional trail traction -- By the staff of Dirt Wheels UTVs keep changing quickly. When 26-inch-tall tires were the norm, we knew exactly what fit each machine for your favorite terrain, but now there are UTVs with 32-inch-tall desert tires running 15-inch rims with more power and suspension than most need. People are purchasing these desert machines and taking them into the woods and rocks.

MAXXIS LIBERTY UTV TIRE

-- Testing DOT-rated desert treads -- By the staff of Dirt Wheels We are stationed in Southern California, which means we have a ton of desert trails to ride. Mud and tight, wooded terrain is a lot more difficult to come by, so we do a lot of testing in rocks and wide-open desert. We test what matches that terrain, like the Maxxis Liberty UTV tire. This well-designed piece of rubber has been out for a while, but we wanted to get some hard miles on a 30-inch set before we wrote down our thoughts. THE TREAD…
