I'm trying to find wider tires but cant seem to find any. I have 25-13-9 now but I would like to find some 25-15-9. Does anyone know if they even make them that wide? What about dual wheels? whats the usual price for a dually kit? Is it really worth getting?

I wasn't even aware they made a dually kit for an ATV. Just remember, whether it be a dually kit or real wide tires, the front end of an ATV is light, so the wider your tires are the more it's going to try to push your front end, making it hard to steer. The front end will just try to slide on soft terrain, instead of turning.

the tires i have on it now are 13 inches wide stock. I'm only talking about the back wheels since its 2wd.
If you go too wide, it'll just push the front end when you come to a tight turn.

I only go about 10mph so i'm not worried about making tight turns, I have a banshee for all that. I just want wider tires for when im mudding.

I like the conventional model tractors with the duels trips set up. The articulating tractor are cool aswell. We call them 8 wheelers here. I have an Ertle toy that is a 12 wheeler.

For the mud you need go with narrower tires not wider, the wider you go the more it will float, you need to sink to the hard pack. the duals should work great though. Sorry I don't no any thing about the dually kit

i dont do much mudding so i dont have alot of experence. but today i hit some. 300 fourtrax 2wd. out back are 25-12-9s carlisle turf buster CARLISLE TURF BUSTER Sizes not really an awesome mud tire. in some red clay mud and then in some mushy/sinking thick mud probably about as high as the tires i could make it thru with a little rocking and persuasion . and this was some decently thick mud and im only 2wd. i think with the right tires you wont need more than 4 wheels. but thats just my option.
