How's it going? Just got my x4 have a couple questions. Is everyone running truck tires instead of utv tires? I've been looking at going with the full bandit spring setup seems to be a bit better ride but is the install difficult? Thanks.

One more question I installed both front and rear windshields and I'm getting a ton of swirling dust in the cab, is this from the rear windshield and can you cut holes to help vent that or just take it off? I live in the high desert so it's very dusty.

Most folks use various flavors of UTV tire. I use 32" BFG UTV tires. Truck tires are much more stiff and heavy than UTV tire (so ive heard), but a limited number of folks use them. Everyone I know of who has tried LT tires always goes back to UTV tires eventually.

my experience on my 2 seat X

dropped $200 on bandit tender springs in first week of owning since machine was harsh - didn't do much at all for the harshness, slightly better, its easy to do - especially if you have the correct spanner wrench. $200 worth of tender springs now sit in a box

eventually had all 4 shocks resprung and re-valved and now have a plush ride, plus added nitrogen schrader valves as the stock rubber nipples leaked nitrogen from day 1. u know when the adjuster is easy to move and not crisp.....no/low gas.

there are other resources such as FCR Suspension, G-Force Racing, Weller Racing that have experience with the talon suspension you may want to consider

there are lots of reports of heavy/squarer profile tires being too much resistance for the weak power steering unit on the machine, tons of work by @PaulF to diagnose - read the threads so if u switch tires you have a heads up

I do not recommend LT truck tires, tread too hard. Squeal on turns
