The Talon will be using custom tires that are specific to this side by side. They were co developed with Maxxis to develop ideal traction, damping, feel and durability. Sizing will be 28x 9-15 up front and 28×11-15 rear.

Couldn't be happier to see Maxxis involve with our tire setup.

I have ATV owning friends that shop with Arctic Cat and Honda and the models they've had worn Maxxis.
My favorite in the past was their Big Horn tires for the Rancher :cool:

I've got with sets from ITP before and been very pleased with them. I agree that its a small price to pay to ensure you don't get stranded while out adventuring.

How long have you had them for and under what conditions were they consistently used? I ask because its common to find complaints about the finish. Rust is a nightmare and ITP beadlock wheels have a reputation for it.

thanks in advance

Where have you heard that? I had my set for a year plus through mud, sand, snow and dirt and never ran into any issues with them. The only thing I have heard in relation to rust is about the bolts but that's easily prevented by going stainless.

Feedback I've seen online and heard from guys I meet on the trails and even at dealers. ITP is a hit or miss at times but fortunately things can be done to prevent this from happening or proo

Honda of Covington Powersports shared up a picture of the Talon wearing 35" mud tires on 20" wheels. Most surprising is they bolted straight on without the need for any kind of lift.

I sort of fear how far this can go. Just my personal preference but these dub style wheels never looked good on ATV's but in places like Philadelphia it seems to be all the rage, so much that what you posted is entry-level.

Function, they're probably one of the better options out, likewise with pickups that is probably the biggest off-road community that uses them, but in situations like this is the wheel design that throws me off.
Simply put, it has too much street appeal.

I have a couple of questions only one of which probably belongs here.
1) What is the bolt pattern? Will wheels that fit RZR XP1000 bolt up?
2) Without "turf" mode on Polaris, the back wheels are locked together...always turn at the same speed. Is that the case on the Talon?

I like the fact you are pushing the limits and not a lot of help on what actually works out there for the Talons. Any feedback with the spacers on?
