Nothing is quite as exciting as getting a new set of ATV tires (except picking up a new quad itself, of course). Tires are such an essential part of your machine that changing them out can alter its characteristic handling. Plus, there’s no denying that some tires give your four wheeler a pretty mean look. When it’s time for you to go shopping for tires, Rocky Mountain ATV/MC is your source. We literally got our start by selling ATV tires, and 30 years later, we’re still the experts. We carry many of the top styles and brands, and we always strive to provide phenomenally low prices.
Do you ride lonely mountain trails, tear up the local MX track, or shred sand at the dunes? Regardless of your terrain of choice, we’ve got tires that will suit you well. We have options that excel in sand, mud, rocks or hard terrain – and many of them cross over into other types as well, giving excellent performance across multiple terrain types.
One of the most essential characteristics of any off-road tire is the tread pattern. The height, width and spacing of the lugs all define how the tire handles in different terrains. For example, wide lugs excel on soft surfaces. Tall, wide lugs can allow your machine to dig through deep mud. Short, tight lugs are often good for hard surfaces like tracks. And of course, you can’t forget about the unique design of each tire’s tread pattern. Many brands spend countless hours in the R&D of a tire’s tread pattern; some are proprietary designs that offer unique handling characteristics you simply can’t get with alternatives. Of course, everyone’s needs are different, so we carry a variety of ATV tires to make sure that you can find something that works well with your specific needs.
We also carry either bias or radial construction tires. In fact, you can filter the options on this page to only show either bias or radial; just check the boxes in the left sidebar. There are advantages and disadvantages for both construction types. Radial tires generally offer better performance at higher loads or speeds. They also don’t wear out as quickly as bias tires. However, bias tires typically come at a lower price, so you can afford to try out different options more frequently. They also have better impact resistance and sidewall puncture resistance – and they’re a lighter weight. That’s why even though radial tires have taken over the auto industry, there are still a lot of off-road riders who choose bias. We have plenty of options for either type, so it doesn’t matter what your preference is.
Another important item to consider when shopping for tires for your ATV is the ply rating. Most of the tires we carry are 4-ply or 6-ply. Both offer a decent weight/durability ratio. However, we also have a few 2-ply tires which can be used for certain track-racing applications. We have tires rated at 8-ply or even 12-ply as well. These are heavy tires which require quads with sufficient power to turn them, but they are pretty heavy duty tires. In fact, 12-ply tires are sometimes marketed as run-flat tires, and they can have great use in some intense off-road races.
You also have many different sizing options. You can enter your machine’s make, model and year into the dropdown menu to narrow the selection down, or you can match up the sizes yourself. Whether you want to match up your tire’s size exactly or experiment a little with the tire height or width to alter its handling, we’ve got options for you. (Of course, don’t experiment too much – your machine is designed for a specific range of tire sizes, after all.)

I recently installed two complete sets of these tires on almost identical ATVs. 2007 Yamaha Wolverine 450 4x4s, weighing about 550# each. Previous/comparison tires were OE-supplied 23" Maxxis Lynx Radials, and 25" Kenda K299 Bearclaw bias-ply tires. The HTs that I installed are 25" tall. IMHO: I'm pleasantly surprised with the all-around performance of these tires. I had concerns because there were so very few reviews of them, and most of the reviews were on SXS, not ATVs. My concerns were laid to rest early on into the first ride. Initially, it's quite noticeable that the tighter tread blocks, and smaller voids create a very smooth and quiet ride compared to my two previous tire selections. Tire vibration with the HTs was immeasurable, non-existent. Very well mannered, at both a slow crawl, and at a faster (25-55mph) speed. These ATVs aren't going to win any races, but I feel they're powerful enough to give these tires a run for their money. Surprisingly, the tires are both light enough, and grippy enough to be able to pull a mild wheelie from a standstill, something that's been all but impossible up until now. The 421cc carbureted engine, with the added weight of a front diff, and being powered VIA a stock CVT trans, means that getting the front wheels off the ground without a ramp, just didn't happen. So, it was a nice surprise that this is now possible. I'm about 250#, and ran my tires at 5.0psi, my other ATV had a 140# rider, and tires inflated to 4.0psi. OE specs call for 5.3-5.8psi, on the OE 4-ply Lynx tire. Seeing as though the sidewalls on the new HTs were a bit stiffer than stock, I opted to drop the pressure a bit. This made the tires feel very forgiving, but not sloppy or squishy in the fairly tight, 48"-wide western Washington wooded trails. Rocks and roots had very little impact on the ride comfort. The tires did a fantastic job at soaking up the bumps. It was a plush, yet very predictable ride. While at speed, we never really felt ourselves expecting a level of performance, that wasn't provided. We did notice a bit of excessive 2wd tire spin at slower speeds when traversing piles of rounded river-rock style, golf-ball sized rocks/gravel... especially while going uphill. But, that's to be expected with a closed tread pattern such at the HT. Also, when attempting to turn around on the narrow trails, 4x4 was almost a requirement to get the rear tires to bite laterally while trying to reverse up onto the edge of the trails. Once in 4wd, the front was pulled around and the rear pushed up onto the trail edge pretty effortlessly. But, from a standstill, in 2wd, with the handlebars turned, the ATV just traveled in a straight line rearward, dragging the front tires, while the rears chewed away at the trail's edge. Again, I attribute this to the closed tread pattern. On dirt, in 2wd, at 6-10mph, we were able to achieve parts of the trails that had previously only been achievable (on these machines) in 4wd. That was a pleasant confidence booster. So, with a little bit of speed/momentum, the closed tread pattern performed better than both previous open tread pattern tires. In general, in both 2wd & 4wd, at both slow and fast speeds, these tires required much less effort to steer & control. Significantly less rider fatigue than with our previous tire selections. Additionally, in 4wd, the ATVs felt unstoppable. Confidence in the tires was very high. Any perceived traction deficit in 2wd, was over-shadowed by the performance and traction that the tires offered in 4wd. TL;DR A bit of speed is key to this tire's success. 4wd can overcome any low-speed traction deficit though. If you prefer a smoother ride, and have 4wd, or are only going to run these on the front, the sacrifice made as a result of the closed tread pattern is totally worth it.Read All Reviews
