Flippin REAR tires???

YES...i used the search and did NOT see anything on there about this...

i noticed..a few of you guys had the rear tires(stock) flipped....does that actually help

ive never heard of doin that...i ride in mostly sand/grass trails...and alot of mud...cuz its always wet here...

so would this help me ouut in shallow mud or should i just leave em the way they are

I flipped mine but it started out as an accident because I was too busy bs-ing while I was taking my paddles off to notice what I was doing. I liked them flipped though and would still fun them that way. That is of course if I didnt blow the sidewall out of one of them...haha

i dont think manufacturers would put the tires on their quads the way they come if they worked better backwards... but thats just my opinion

i didnt mean flip the rims...i jus meant put the left side rim and tire on the right...and vise versa

the reason i ask is...i get stuck all the time....i kno its not a mud bike....but even very shallow stuff...

im lookin for a more agressive tire for the rear to help ....any recomendations

i really like the look of the itp mudlite....anybody have em??

Re: Flippin REAR tires???

personally i think it helped more in loose dirt and mud... more of a scoop action and not biting. try it out, what's it hurt?!

I did it to mine. Did it help? I dunno It looks like it would bite a lil better than the other way, but not too noticeable to me at least
