    Once I figure it out I will post a picture but now I am wanting to put new tires on it. The machine has 25" tires on it but from what I can find it came with 26" tires from factory, any good suggestion for tires for road use with a plow

    Jeff- There's lots of choices out there.!

    26s will fit best, some have gotten 27s or larger to fit, but on my old 06 and 07 I had rubbing issues at times with the 26s when the front bottomed out, so I wouldn't go bigger than that.

    Are you going to do any trail riding? or just paved/ gravel roads? Gonna see any mud? or just some snow in the winter?

    I'm having good luck with these, Maxxis Cerios and most of what I do is high speed paved with an occasional mud hole, in snow I have not been.

    The mule pros come with these tires but the duro brand. Not maxxis. If you go with these go with the maxxis. Don't buy the duros. They have been horrible. Flats non stop and they don't hold up at all. I can't wait to get rid of them

    Just installed a set of GBC Dirt Tamers today. I really like that tire. Cheap, tough, smooth riding. I have now officially gotten rid of every radial tire operating on one of our side by sides. They're just not tough enough!

    Only Radial left I'd like to run is the Kanati Mongrel. Which actually, would be very good for the kind of use you're talking about Jeff. Should grip good on the street/roads while giving you some good snow traction.. Built like a miniature off road truck tire.

    When you start asking about tires, answers will be all over the board and I haven't been in the utv market all that long I have learned a few things; if you look at non-dot tires they really have no supervision for the lack of a better term and although they "may" be true in ply ratings, material and compounds very greatly and details are hard to come by. DOT tires have to conform to government guidelines, which may or may not be a good thing but you should know what your buying. Just for the record, mine are non-dot and are generally cheaper.

    2007 polaris ranger 700efi

    I'm new on here, but I purchased a 2007 ranger 700xp from a farmer who put fertillizer in the bed and left it. I had to replace sub frame, rear a arms, all bushings, all bearings, all breaks, axles, and fluids. I got it for 2250.00 and have around 4 in it now. I want to make it run better and do some clutch work. I added a power commander pc3 to see if it will help its mixture issues from the factory. I have an api kit in the way for springs and weights, and a new gates belt. I added a bilge blower to pull fresh air across/through the clutch housing to help cool the belt. I still need to replace the ball joints and put on a new set of rack and pinion boots. Any ideas of things that will make it run better and last would be greatly appreciated
