Time for new tires for my KQ 750!

I am due to replace the stock tires on my KQ 750! I will be using stock size, might go to a 26”. I do a lot of trail riding, some sand, some mud, some gravel. A little bit of everything! What’s the best tire to run? I want a good riding somewhat aggressive tire. What are you guys running? Pictures of your tire setups would be great! Thank you

I'm running Kenda Bear Claw HTR's on my KingQuad and Rancher. Very pleased with the performance and wear.

The KQ tires are 26 inch. I took them off the Grizzly I traded in, they have 2700 miles on them. I have 25 inch tires on the Rancher, they have 1000 miles.

Time for new tires for my KQ 750!

I just installed 26Ē BigHorn 2.0 on ITP Hurricane wheels. I am very pleased. They are expensive but my 2016 KQ rides like a Cadillac down the road. I have to run about a mile of pavement to get to the trails where I live. Theyíre very good on any surface Iíve tried (mud, gravel, rock, etc).

Iíll upload a photo tomorrow or Friday.

I agree in my KQ 500 I went to bighorn 2.0's. Great overall ride quality and great all around traction. Also went up to 26" tires.

How does the 500 handle the larger and heavier tires? Did you do any clutch mods? I was thinking of putting Bighorn 3.0 on and they only go down to 26s.

Here is mine...I don’t notice much power loss and have done no clutch mods, however I’m only 170 lbs.

The steering input is definitely heavier as I don't have power steering. But it is not bad. I have about 500 miles on them. Still drifts well in the Georgia clay. I initially put in 1.5mm of shim it was too much. I backed out to .7mm shim and it is just right.
