UTV tires are about as varied as the machines themselves, so choosing a new set for your side-by-side can seem like quite the daunting task. Make it easier on yourself by shopping from our massive collection at Rocky Mountain ATV/MC. With tires broken down by brand, size, terrain, ply rating, construction, and certification, our easy-to-use website makes it simple to narrow down the options until you find the tire you need.
The type of tire you need depends on the type of riding you’re doing. Are you rock crawling? Tearing through the dunes? Cruising through mountain trails? Wherever and however you ride, we have the tire for you.
An important element of UTV tires is their size. There are three numbers that indicate a UTV tire’s size. The first number represents height, the second represents width, and the third represents the rim diameter. There is room for customization in UTV tire size if you want your machine to be higher or wider, but it’s best to check your owner’s manual before making any drastic changes.
The tread pattern is another point to consider. Different types of tread handle better in different areas. For example, an aggressive tread pattern with deep lugs can bite loose terrain and keep you moving faster. The height and width and spacing of the lugs, as well as the specific design, are carefully developed to optimize the performance of UTV in varying terrains. Loose terrain like mud, snow, and sand respond well to deep, paddle-type lugs, while many tires designed for rocky terrain use a crisscross or zig-zag pattern to maximize grip. Look for the tread you think could handle the terrain you’re going to be riding on.
UTV tires also come in different ply ratings. Ply ratings indicate the tire’s strength – the higher the ply rating, the stronger the tire. Tires will come in 4-ply, 6-ply, 8-ply, and 10-ply ratings. UTVS typically require heavier ply tires as the machines are considerably heavier than ATVs, so a good rule to follow is: the more rigorous you’re riding, the higher ply your tire should be.
You will also want to be aware of the tire’s construction. Some side-by-side tires use a radial construction, others use a bias construction. The difference beteween the two is how the cords are laid inside the tire. In radial UTV tires, the cords are laid at a 90° angle, making the tires stiffer and more durable. Most DOT certified UTV tires are going to feature a radial construction as they are better suited for the road. Bias UTV tires are made from cords laying at 30° and 60° angles. This makes the tires more flexible for harder, rockier terrains, but also allows them to break down faster.

I have been riding these tires for about 650 miles. I keep a pocket compressor in my back pack so when I come to a trail head, I let them down to 10psi. When I'm ready to go home, I air them up to 25psi and set off down the road. This keeps the tires from being to spongey on the road and have better handling. I ride in all types of terrain, the front tires don't do well in soft sand, digs in like a knife (possibly due to inexperience) also in wet rocky terrain, they like to slide out pretty easily. But other than that, they work very well. When aired down, I have no problems flying down dirt roads or single track. They absorb hitting rocks very well, sticking in corners, they break loose predictably when going down windy dirt roads and the front moves a bit but it's not bad. Breaking is also very good. They chug through muddy single track pretty well, ride through wooded trails nicely, they handle alright in shallow sand, little squirrelly but not bad. They also grip dry rock faces quite nicely as well. The road worthiness is exceptional once aired up. They corner nicely and are quite smooth for knobbies. I've put about 400 miles of road on them and they are holding nicely. All in all, they aren't a bad tire for the price and if you air them properly for the terrain, they work well.Read All Reviews

I really like the Shinko 700 tires. The picture attached is after 3,000 miles of use on my 2004 XT225. I have ridden on Hells Revenge, dirt trails, and many other places without issues. They work great at 70 mph on the highway getting to trails.Read All Reviews

These have been a great tire for my GS/A and handle the type of riding I do perfectly. I do 95% street riding and love twisty stuff and sweepers. The inspire confidence and are very sporty for the "sport touring"Read All Reviews

Just put these on and have a ride planned this weekend. I will update when I get back but wanted to provide a few photos. I was having a hard time finding if the 30" tires would even fit on my Maverick Sport so thought I would let all those Can Am owners know they do fit. I'm also having an EPI clutch kit installed to get the factory zip back with the addition of the larger/heavier tires.Read All Reviews
