TOYO ROLLS INTO UTV MARKET WITH OPEN COUNTRY SXS TIRE

  One of the most aggressive truck tire makers, Toyo, has entered the UTV world with a product developed specifically for the side-by-side segment from the ground up. Guys like Robby Gordon and Bryce Menzies have already been running the tire at King Of The Hammers, Baja and in Dakar.   Its tread design is very similar in appearance to the competition Toyo makes for off-road racing or the on road truck market. Visually the difference in tread from the DOT is the lack of siping on the SxS tread blocks. The SXS…

PRODUCT TEST: ITP Bajacross Sport Tires and SS316 Black OPS Wheels

WHAT IT IS: ITP’s original eight-ply Bajacross tire set a new standard for toughness in ATV/UTV tires. The new Bajacross Sport joins the proven Bajacross tread pattern and compound with lighter sixply construction. The two tire models aren’t available in the same sizes, but the fact that a 27x11R-14 rear Bajacross Sport is 3.5 pounds lighter than a 26x11R-14 Bajacross shows the difference is significant. Many machines come from the factory with four-ply tires, so six-ply-rated tires are a good upgrade for rough UTV and ATV…
