CST SANDBLAST TIRES

— Testing a new tire style for the sand — By the staff of Dirt Wheels We have something of a love-hate relationship with paddle tires. We love the traction in the sand, but unlike many UTV pilots, our whole world doesn’t revolve around the sandbox. None of our machines are reserved specifically for sand […]

— GMZ’s newest beadlock wheel — The GMZ Podium beadlock is a durable aluminum wheel available in both 14 and 15 inch size options designed for sand and off-road rigs! Whether you prefer a staggered or non-staggered setup, drive a full size four-door or smaller two-seater the Podium has you covered.  Price — $235. The […]

TRACK & TRAIL TT400 TIRES

— Testing some impressive rubber for your sport quad — By the staff of Dirt Wheels Sport quad tire shapes and tread designs are generally pretty similar to one another. This stays true for the Track & Trail TT400 tires. However, we get to torture test many different tires and discover differences in traction and […]

TUSK KEVLAR TERRABITE TIRES

— Testing them on Wasatch Beadlock wheels — By the staff of Dirt Wheels Tread with fresh edges just grips the dirt in such a satisfying way. Double that feeling when you get a tire that is perfectly suited to the terrain you drive. Rocky Mountain ATV MC’s house brand Tusk offers the Terrabite radial […]

TIRE-SIZE COMPARISON: 28″ vs. 30″ vs. 32″ TIRES

New or different tire sizes are one of the most popular mods that UTV and ATV owners make to their machines. The current style is massive tires for off-road trucks, and that trend has leached into UTV and ATV culture as well. But, monster tires can ruin a truck’s performance and handling, and we all […]

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 […]

SYSTEM 3 WHEELS & TIRES

–Testing a great UTV setup  — By the staff of Dirt Wheels We love testing tires! Not only does it mean we get to go riding, it also means that we purposely get to put the smackdown on rubber and try to take it past its limits. System 3 Off-Road sent us over a set of […]

MAXXIS CARNIVORE TIRES

— Extreme-terrain traction tire test — By the staff of  Dirt Wheels When we first set eyes on the Maxxis Carnivore, our overly expert opinions (insert sarcasm here) were far too harsh for this tire. We assumed the tread design would handicap the tire on any form of hardpack UTV driving, while our desert-going crew wanted to turn […]

FULLERTON SAND SPORTS SXS TIRES & DWT ULTIMATE SPORT WHEELS

— Testing serious sand tires and wheels — By the staff of Dirt Wheels Not all paddle tires are created equal. That fact was driven home when we took our 2019 Polaris RZR 4 Turbo S to the famed Glamis dunes. We ran the first day with the stock ITP Coyote desert tires with the […]

MAXXIS CORONADO UTV TIRES

— Tough multi-terrain performance tire test — By the staff of Dirt Wheels We become used to seeing hard-terrain tires with closely spaced, relatively short tread blocks. Most have a pretty square profile as well. In light of that, we assumed that the Maxxis Coronado was a mud tire with widely spaced, deep tread blocks. […]

TRACK & TRAIL TT410 TIRES

— Testing a six-ply ATV & UTV  tire with traction and long life — By the staff of Dirt Wheels Track & Trail is another tire company that is new to the ATV and UTV scene. Currently, the company has a sport quad tire set and the TT410 utility tire. The tire’s specs and pricing […]
