    I use my Honda Rubicon for hunting in the mountains of California and the terrain is a lot of loose rock from the gold rush days.I got 10 years out of the original bridgstone dirt hooks but I also had to fix several flats.I am looking at the GBC Dirt Devil AT's.I am thinking 6 ply or better for fewer if any flat tires.Please let me know your opinions?Thanks PJ

    I have been using Maxis Big Horns they are very durable and great traction in all terrain. They will last a very long time.

    Tough to beat any of the Maxis tires.

    Round tires are by far the best.

    I'm running Maxis Max-Zillas on my pair of Polaris 500s. Super agressive tread that does well on everything. 6 ply and no punctures in the first season of use. They do pick up and throw smaller gravel though - fenders required.

    These tire perform much better than the GoodYears that came on the machines - both in traction and puncture resistance.

    Most of what I run my ATVs on is loose rock/sand in the high desert with some occaisional mud when crossing the alkali flats.

    Like poacherjoe, I too got a lot of use and years on the original Dirt Hooks on my Honda. They just never wore out. When I finally changed them, I went with Carsile's and similar tread patern. I've never had a flat on either set and have about four years so far on the Carsile's which don't even look worn. Dave S
