Put the new tires on.

The old rims definitely put in their time and don't owe me anything... RIP rims

Re: What did you do TO and/or WITH your ATV or SxS today?

Well... I didn't realize the rims they put on were not proper rims for the rear.

They are 4 front rims... so the rear didn't get the proper off-set.
(**Look at the pic of the other quad loaded on the trailer with the proper off-set rear rims**)

I didn't realize this.

I took the quads out for a rip and we were on some backroads to get to the trail.... we went about 20 miles with an average speed of 40mph.

At the trailhead I smelled some burning rubber.... sure as s##t the tire is rubbing against the exhaust pipe and shroud. I totally rubbed off a section of the inside of the tire... a brand new tire.

Now I need to get a different set of rims and put these tires on them... and perhaps buy a new tire to replace the one that I seriously degraded.

Dude, that totally sucks! What about using wheel spacers instead of new rims? It'd probably be cheaper.

I see that you got past the "No Trespassing" sign in good health.

That blows man, spacers are dirt cheap compared to new wheels as CC said.

Btw this sub forum still isn't showing up in active topics, I'll start using new posts instead so I can see this stuff more easily.

The stance is totally messed up on the 500 now.... looks terrible too. I would rather just get the proper offset and be done with it.

The front tires are actually sitting wider than the rears.

The rims I'm getting are only $50/each.... and only getting 2.


I'll poke around today and see if there's anything I can do to make this show up in active topics.... I rarely used New Posts too myself... typically only hit Active Topics.

EDIT: I've added these 2 threads to Active Topics.

What a world of difference having the proper offset on the rear tires
Lesson learned....

All good now... I decided to keep using the tire that had the lugs rubbed/burned off... shouldn't be a huge impact overall.

Re: What did you do TO and/or WITH your ATV or SxS today?

So I bit the bullet and got some helmet comms. (just ordered, not arrived yet)
Kanata Honda :: HOLIDAY MOTORCYCLE GIFT GUIDE :: SCALA RIDER PACK TALK DUAL SET


It's a big chunk of change but I REALLY would like to be able to talk to the wife while we're riding... and it seems to be a popular system around here for when I'm out with a group too.

There have been a few times when I'm trying to use the little FRS radios but when we're riding you can't hear the radio chime, stop, and then talk on it.

This would be a nice seamless system to be able to warn her of upcoming dangers or neat things to see.
"Hey, check out that deer!"
"Slow down for this hole, it dips a LOT to the right and you may tip if you don't hug the trail to the left"

Also when I look back and don't see them... wait for them to catch up... and they never do catch up, I then think something has happened to them.... so I to retrace my steps only to find them blissfully picking blueberries... lol.

Not today but hauled a deer with it last fall.
My ATV is pretty much just my workhorse for hunting.

Re: What did you do TO and/or WITH your ATV or SxS today?

Took my sister quadding.... nothing too exciting but we had a great time

The winches got put to use

Man, those tires are like night and day to the original worn out stock tires!!! I got through stuff I never dreamed of getting through before... without a winch! (sometimes, lol)

And just like wheeling... you don't end up grabbing the camera for the really big stuff.... lol. I gotta get a goPro one day....
