What new tires and wheels are in store for our Talons? Looks like you have some 35 inch mud tires and wheels comming in the near future -- please give us a sneak peak along with price range.

Lol!! Busted!!

We have some new Terminators going live on the website TODAY! They're not up yet, but should be live by the end of the day. BUT....if you want the link right now...you can get them here.
SuperATV Terminator MAX UTV/ATV Tires

We should have the 35"/22" and 42"/22" for sale today, and some 44"/24"s up by the end of the week! We had the 42"s in the portal pic from the WTF Bounty Course, and the 35"s on the portal pics from the website.






44"s

Wow, I love the 42s -- trouble is I am on my better halfs -- No Buy List. Have to be good and make sure she is very happy before I even think of them!
Well....you're in luck!! ?

I will lay low until after the IGR is installed and then pounc! Think she would believe super duper BOGO sale? Na, she is a bit smarter than the average bear.:p:p Plus, she knows me well after 47 years!

Any way, do you think the 42s would fit with the 4 inch portals on my setup? I already have your forward 1.5 inch A-Arms and the upper springs I installed added 1 inch to the overall height. Currently I am using the 2" spacers in the rear and 1.5" spacers in the front.

I looked for the wheels and did not see them yet wonder what the pricing is with the BOGO?

Lol!! @BlueDog1210 ?? I'll get you fixed up whenever the time comes to pull the trigger.

The 42"s are going to rub pretty good with the arms and 4" lift. In the little sneak peak pic from a few weeks ago, that Talon had our arms and 6" portals, and they still rubbed a little....but only at full turn and the occasional bump. You can probably get away with it if you're ok with some rubbing and not trying to flex the suspension too much.

So what can I do now to increase clearance? I am running 1.5 inch spacers to get the OEM wheels to fit with the 4 inch portals and still have 1.5 inch clearance and the places I run are fine with the super wide ride. :cool:

I am having 6" portals and a arms installed, is there a 2" lift for the Talon x4? And will this allow for 42" to not rub?

There is a 2" lift kit for the X2s. Check with SuperATV for the x4s -- there are other options I am going to look at, but with a bit of luck there is a way to squeeze them in. Be sure to post in the New Member Introductions so we can all welcome you. Please post your progress here and do post a few pictures when the time comes. The portal install was not a big deal but Red's Off-road in Florida will install them for free if you buy them from then and they use SuperATV portals as well. Be sure to get the case (6 bottles) of Portal Blood as you will need to change the Portal oil 2 or 3 times after the first tides. That will be a beast, what reduction are you going to select? Ride safe and I am sure you will have a ton of fun in the beast! I love the Portals especially when combined with the Internal Gear Drive.

Hey man! Unfortunately we don't have a 2" lift ready for the X 4 seater model yet. We still have to play with those shocks. With the forward arms and 6" portals you can easily do a 36" maybe 37" with no rubbing. I think your main issue is width and getting those tires out away from the shocks and away from the fender well. The R model has a lot more tire clearance. Wheel spacers will help, but I can't say exactly what you what need to get 42"s on there. Probably not a whole lot.

Would using the 2" Lift for Talon X 2 seater (shock spacers) work on the X4 to give extra Lift?

Unfortunately those spacers aren't going to work. They're not going to fit right on your shocks. The springs have a different ID and OD.
