    I need a new rear tire. This go-round I really wanted one that was D.O.T.-legal, I did a search and found only 3, which is 3 more than existed the last time I looked into it.



    STI Black Diamond XTR Radial ATV Tires



    EFX MotoGrip Radial ATV Tires,



    Interco Super Swamper TSL Radial



    Plus the street-oriented GBC Afterburn Streetforce ATV and a few turf type tires I have ruled out.



    Anyone aware of others?



    I've heard mention of a Maxxis D.O.T. tire, but near as I can determine none exist. A couple of websites mistakenly list it as D.O.T., but near as I can tell that just ain't so. Enlighten me if you've seen one in the flesh with a D.O.T. stamp.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Nope. Unless you know something I don't the above are the only 3. Some sites claim there's a D.O.T. Bighorn, but other than the truck version they all have "not for highway use" imprinted on them.



    We have a "big-box" motorcycle store near me. I need to go down there and read some sidewalls.

    I don't think the GBC tires are available in our size. Anybody know for sure?

    Unclear. They have 14 listed on their website, but the dimensions are listed as "TBA", which I assume means "to be announced".



    The one dimension that isn't "TBA" is the diameter, at 23 inches. I thought it might have value for lowering a bike without shock mods. Never seen one.

    Well, I suppose I can swing by their place in town and ask. I ride past about 10 times a day. Are we looking for 8/26-14?

    Yeah. 8's or 9's usually fit, but actual section width varies hugely amoung them. My 26x9 Bighorn2.0 is considerably less wide than Ronnydog's original Bighorn in the same size designation, for example. I'm not sure I'd go the mail order route on an untried tire at this point because of that..



    Hammer on them to make one and gives us all a group buy.

    Actually, they have about 10 vendors in the Far East who make tires to their specs. Cheng Shin is one of the vendors.

    S.O.P. these days. Long as it's D.O.T. and properly constructed I don't care if it was molded in some guy named Ernie's bathtub.
