Picked up some used ATV tires and decided they might look good on the SS12.

Before: (22.5-7-12)

And After: (25-10-12)
GEDC1034 (Large).JPG GEDC1033 (Large).JPG GEDC1036 (Large).JPG

You can't quite read it, but the tires say "Mud Lite" on them.. :rolleyes:

About 3/4" at the close spots to the fender.
I took it for a short victory lap ( :dancingbanana: )and it's does seem faster, hope the grip is there in the winter time.

Don't think I got taken for the $40

Yep, a steal at $40. Now you've just gotta clean the front ones, so it looks all pretty.

Are you kidding me??? That's what I have kids for. Besides, it's much more fun to get the clean ones dirty.

I think they'll stick like glue!


I hope so, trying to figure out how to get the chains in there if they don't would be a challenge.

All grip and no slip puts a lot more strain on the drive train. This advice comes from first hand experience. For working in the garden or snow they will work fine. On turf or hard packed ground they can over load things if you aren't careful.
Nice looking tires and they should last a long time.
