    new rear tire option 26x8x14

    So I just discovered and ordered this tire for $70 shipped on ebay. hoping its truly a light weight alternative to a bighorn/duro.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/26-x-8-14-T...Faoufc&vxp=mtr

    After my Duro exploded I hadn't had a reason to finish my swingarm stretch, but hoping this goes smoother. warm weather must be on the way...

    Nice to see a lighter option out there. The link came up with other interesting options but they may be a bit too big and heavy even though a round profile is desirablet2 big.jpg

    That tire is a beaut! Looking forward to your feedback on it. I wonder if it will be "bouncy" on the road, the lugs look like they may be close enough. If it is reasonably smooth on road and mounts well - you found my next tire!

    Are they bouncy or jiggly on an ATV? I am not a fan of enhanced options but those are nice.

    Be careful with them there are a lot of fakes out there, those do look legit but you won't know until you have them in your hands.

    The fakes don't ride the same. You can just feel the difference when you ride.
