Kevlar Tires

Hello everyone. New to this forum, but have had this Gator for a while. It抯 a 2004 4x2 and is used on a ranch here in the Texas Hill Country where mesquite thorns play the devil with keeping the tires inflated. I抳e used Slime in those tires for years but the tires are getting pretty worn now and it抯 time for a new set. I抎 like to get some Kevlar tires for it, but don抰 see the correct sizes anywhere that I抳e looked. The rear tires are presently AT25x13-9 and the fronts are AT22.5x10.0-8.

Does anyone know where such tire sizes are available in Kevlar? Or, what alternative size wheels will fit and function well on this Gator with a different size Kevlar tire?

Many thanks for any help.
Bill

I'd check your bolt pattern and center hole. If it's a 5x4.5 with a 3.19" center hole, you can get all sorts of trailer type 15" rims and pick out a variety of steel/kevlar DOT rated stuff to put on them. If you want maximum width, you go with the wider rims. You can read my post on street tires to get some of the options including information on the problem with JD lug bolts on aftermarket aluminum rims. It looks like slim pickings available for your rims.
