Another tire question: 12 x 10 all around
Have been running Carlisle 489s on 12-inch ITP wheels.
25 x 10 in front
25 x 12 in back
Performance has been great in mixed terrain.
But I just hit a rock hard enough to bend a spindle, dent a front wheel in two places / pinch flat the front tire, and bent a rear wheel as well. On my front tire, I've got 5 plugs in one hole, 1 in another, and it's barely hanging on...
I actually like the 489s, and don't think another tire would have held up any better considering the damage.
But I'd like to run a non-directional, same-size tire at all 4 corners so that I can carry a spare wheel/tire.
Have been thinking about 12-inch Rockstars with 25 x 10 Bighorn 2.0 at all 4 corners. What do you guys think? Any recommendations (besides "learn the how to drive and avoid rocks" and "aren't you the guy who recently bent his frame?")
BTW - I've got a rejet, cam, intake and Pro Tec duals for motor mods.
And I've got paddles/smoothies for the sand, so these will be hardpack/desert tires.
