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.

Thanks!

As long as the tires are the same height you can use any size for a spare. The 10's would be fine imo

"I hope the porn channel in my room is disabled."

"No," she said, "it's just regular porn, you sick bastard."

Any site sponsors have a good price for this combo?

Well first off, I'm running a 25x10 in front and a 25x11 in back...and the tire and wheel have been holding up.

The Pro Tec duals were loud until I adjusted then. I've got them halfway between full open and full closed and its pretty quiet. A few people have even commented to me how quiet it was.

So if you haven't already I recommend adjusting them...nice to have the adjustability feature.

But my ezhaust cans aren't the greatest. It blows the hex nuts out so I need to put some high temp loctite on it all.

Looking at the design, we think it isn't the best-flowing pipe so I'm saving up for a Ron Woods system and Pro Shop dyno tune.

It might be a dumb quest. But on the exhaust how do I adjust it ? I looked at the cans and was wondering if I messing something, do I need to buy the quite tips ?

You need to get their adjustable quiet core inserts, assuming you don't already have them. You'll need two, one per side.

It's really easy to use. You simply turn the dics to expose more holes (louder and better flow), or colse them to close up the holes (quieter but less flow).

I've run full open (too loud), full closed, and now I just set both up about halfway open. To be honest with you, I didn't notice a performance difference at all, but the sound difference is noticeable.

I run 26x10x12 Bighorns on all four corners of my Teryx and like it. One spare does it all.

If you have paddles for the sand, I would think about Bighorns. They are heavy, but seem to do well in the desert.
