interested in theses tires for my 2015 900 crew. How are they on blacktop? My Moto mtcs vibrate really bad over 40 thanks
Honestly, I wouldn't consider them "smooth", but bearable. Not as smooth as the Bighorns I'm used to, but they have eliminated the sidewall cuts and punctures I was getting on the Bighorns. I don't run 50+ very often, so I'll take the less smooth ride that goes along with the tougher 8 ply tire.How do you like those roctanes? Smooth on blacktop at 50mph?
I just need to trim the fender and pull the flare back an inch or so.I forgot that you don't have forward A-arms. You're gonna have some rubbing.
Looked up roctanes, tread looks similar to bighorns. Is the roctane 8 ply and bighorn 6?I heard the same about the MTC's and that was one of the reason I went with the Roctanes.
Curt (carnivore) just installed a set of Claws on his RZR, so maybe he'll chime in once he has a chance to give them a test drive.
Yes, and yes. Although the tread is similar, the Roctanes clean out mud better than the Bighorns did, and still do just as well (if not better) in the rocks and hardpack.Looked up roctanes, tread looks similar to bighorns. Is the roctane 8 ply and bighorn 6?
Better sidewall protection?
After leaving mine aired up to 35 psi for a day then bringing them down to 16 psi from the ground up on the machines my 30" measure 29.5". Not too bad.Mason, my MotoClaws ride great at 50mph+. Better actually than the Trail Grapplers on my truck. My only complaint is the sizing seems a bit small. Think I'll air them up to 35 pounds in the morning like mentioned above, and air back down Sunday and see where they're at. The ride on blacktop really is smooth though. We take the Ranger 6.5 miles from our camphouse to the duck lease, and 4 miles of that is blacktop, including a mile and a half of 2 lane highway and they ride smooth and track straight at 50+.
