yes that is right, the left rear wheel/tire fell off today. :( Thank go I was just riding around the house and was close enough to the garage. I lost 3 nuts, 3 washers and 2 bolts. The holes inlargened so much that the wheels are now useless. The twist to the story; I made a repair to my girlfriends' brother's quad and he was so happy that he gave me a new set of wheels and tires. Of course they wouldn't work on his quad (different bolt pattern size) so he had no use for them.



They are Realtor Pure Sport tires that measure out to 22x12-9 yet they are the same height as my 20x11-9 tires. Who cares, I got a free set of wheels and tires and I don't have to spend $170 on them! :D

They were tight. There was so much slop in the mounting holes that they worked themselves free. This time I'm using locking nuts.

I will hopefully be getting them mounted up later on today. I might take it out for a little after that. I got a new airbox in yesterday, one with a lid and that is not cracked. lol

Your riding a modified quad with the airbox lid on? Aren't you starving for fuel in top gears at WOT?

Right now there is no lid on it, hence why I got it, plus my box is cracked. I just didn't want water and whatnot to get in there while out riding. I tend to cross small streams when out in the woods.

Those tires ROCK! They are not that great on the hard packed stuff, but the loose stuff...... HOLY [email protected]! There was a lot of corners taken where the front tires were being lifted and the whole atv was being pushed.
