Will do.

I do like the look of that flat bed. Something like that with sides would excite me...

New radial tires...

6 ply radial tires make a big difference! I recently replaced 8 tires on my Honda Rubicon & Yamaha Rhino with Duro Frontier radial tires from Rocky Mountain ATV. The Rhino seems to float more like a Cadillac now, much smoother ride, the Rubicon is a little smoother also, but after putting the radials on, both machines steer so much easier it instantly felt like I added power steering to both machines what a nice improvement. I'll soon be buying a Pioneer 500 and those stock tires will be quickly changed to the radials. I don't know about clearance on the Pioneer, but I've read that radial tires have a softer sidewall a bit more prone to damage than stiff 2 ply bias tires. However the 6 ply radials are suppose to be a lot more puncture resistant for ground contact than 2 ply bias tires. I still use Green Slime though because we have nasty desert thorns that can ruin tires.

The Frontier is a smooth riding tire, we sell a ton of them. The AMS radial pro is pretty close to the Frontier but rides a touch rougher being 8 ply.

This is what a 500 looks like with 26 Frontiers on it.

I would love to get a tire like them. But they wouldn't do good in the clay we have here in SC. I still haven't made my mind up on tires. I want a mid duty mud tire with good side wall lugs and at least 1 1/4 high lugs. And i can't find any. Either it's huge paddle type tires or lugs are to close together and will pack with mud easy.

The sidewall lugs is the hard part. Maba Lite would be one with good sidewall lugs but kind of a more aggressive tire. The Outlaw MST or Radial would be a couple more but not a lot of sidewall lug. I have seen a few more but can't think of them at the moment.

Thanks toodeep that about exactly what i am looking for.. The MST ... The reason i want good side wall lugs is where i ride has huge ruts and i can't hardly ever get out of them. Trucks and jeep with huge tires dig them out.

Scott, I have black diamond xtr tires. Big open lugs on them that don't need to be spun at warp speed to clean them out. Went with 26" and they measure small, but what a difference over stock traction in all conditions.
