i picked mine up today and literally went home in my cousins flat hay field and went into a corner and both passsennger side tires popped of the rims and flipped me over bent up the roll bar and a few other parts im totally disappointed after reading how great they were ive been riding dirt bikes since i was 6 years old annd the only time i had a tire pop of the rim when was i hit a huge rock on my 700 raptor i would advise against this purchase until they figure it out im disappointed and now have to get a whole new roll bar after not even an hour of ride time

Wow, sounds to me like the tires may have been nearly flat when you took off and you peeled them off the rims.

Did you check tire pressure? Where were they? I've seen countless videos of people flogging/sliding these cars all over the place, on all types of surfaces, but this is the 1st I'm hearing of this...I have seen at least one factory roll bar for sale...IIRC on the Talon FB page. You may find one close to local, if you're patient and don't live too far in the boonies. People are upgrading and selling the stock units. That's another option...

Sorry to hear of your misfortune. In all fairness, sounds like either tires were low or you hit a rut that grabbed the tires.
Like you, I’m 50. Been riding/ driving for 46 of them.
I think you would agree tires don’t easily jump off beads. They usually take some sideways forces to get them to fold off.
