6 ply Ribbed tires
I have a 2004 4x2 Gator with 8 front tires (22x11-8) and 9 rear tires (25x12-9). These original tires are shot. Theyve been patched so many times and filled with so much sealant that theyve finally given up the ghost and split their sidewalls. So, I need some new skins and Id like to get some that are more resistant to the vast number of things here in Texas that are looking to destroy them (mesquite thorns, in particular). A buddy of mine has a Mule with Kevlar tires on it and hes not yet had a flat in five years of ownership.
Ive looked online and cant seem to find anything in the above sizes thatll be an improvement over what Ive had. I imagine a different wheel size might open up some more opportunities, but I dont know what size wheels will work on this machine. Therefore Im a little hesitant to change sizes unless someone else tells me that they did it and it works fine.
Suggestions on wheel size and/or tires would be appreciated form someone who has been there. Thanks, guys.
