Meant to do this last year and didn't, and the recent blizzard we had over the weekend reminded me real fast. My 98 Fourtrax 300 4x4 still has the original tires on it, and lets just say they didn't do so well plowing this weekend. The ATV is really only used as a snow plow, with a few utility trips around the property in the summer and maybe a joy ride or two. I'm looking for primarily a snow tire. Maybe wheels too depending on cost. The stock wheels are pretty rusted and bent. If I could fit a larger wheel/tire combo to increase clearance that would be great.

So, any recommendations? Was looking at the 589's, but I really have no idea.

Thanks!

not sure what you want on yours..but..my 89 trx350d fourman 4x4 is soon to get a new set of shoes..lol..i'm going with stock size 24x9x11 mude lite by itp..6 ply rating..from what i read about them..alot of people like them...alot depends on how much money your willing to spend..keep this in mind when looking around..also..i see alot of people put tires on thier bikes..with big lugs..what they dont know is..this is very hard on the ring and pinion gears.cv joints...i've replaced sooooooo many of these because of agressive tires being on bikes...i guess it all boils down to how much money you want to invest now..and later down the road...if you want..go to jcwhiteny..< i think thats how it's spelled >..or bikebandit.com...and read up on the tires..specs..so forth :)

I like the mud lites pretty good in mud and on trails, but I don't know about snow. I don't ride on snow much, because we don't have that much snow here. I like the 6 ply better, because I don't get near as many flats and they last pretty good if you ride on asphalt some.
