Hi, this may be more than you want to get into, but it is working very well for me. In order to be able to ride on pavement without wearing out a set of tires everyday, I swapped out the stock tires and replaced them with matching light weight aluminum rims and BFG All Terrains 27" x 8.5" x 14" for regular trucks on the rear, Carlisle All Trail 25" x 8" x 12" for ATV's or UTV's on parking lot duty, on the front. It's a lot of fun to ride and the tires are not showing any signs of wear for the 1750 miles I have on them so far (60% pavement 40% dirt).

the kings tires will not work on the road, they have to soft of a compound. the only street legal dot approved quad tires are racer tires by achieva. The only problem is that they have no dealers. They made me a dealer just so I could buy them. I can post pictures tonight. thay have hard compound. So they last long. :thumbsup:

I dont know about other states but if it has a DOT(department of transportation) # its road legal. Durability wise cant be any worse than the stockers.

I would probably use the 22x7x10 and 22x10x10. Slower rotation-less heat-less wear-high gear ratio

Your name(lowridin88) implys you may want to go with the 18.5x6.5x10 and 18x10x10
