    Has any one had any experience with Kanati Mongrel tires for the UTV? What do you think of them?

    I am pretty sure that both @Dave and @PlumberSteve76 both have or have had the mongrels. They have a pretty good reputation as a nice trail radial tire along w/ a DOT rating.

    I know Dave runs these tires.. I had similar style called sti chicanes. I have over 3000 miles including 2 trips to wesr virginia and 1 trip to Tennessee on them with zero flats or issues. the rears are getting pretty worn out but overall im very impressed on how well they have held up. neither are real great tires in the mud but im guessing that's not a huge issue where your at.. lol

    The terrabites were on the top of my list. Great reviews, good price, 8 ply radial with a dot very,etc. I ended up with the crawler xg’s. They seemed just a little more aggressive and I wanted to try them out. They are a very similar tire to what I ended up with.

    Mongrels are great tires. My only knock on them is the tread depth, and the rolled edges/corners. But it's pretty typical of these newer DOT tires.

    Durability has been great on the set I sold.

    I have nothing against the Tusk like of tires, but I found some Kenda Bearclaw HTRs on ebay for around $450, so I went with them. Been happy so far! Actually bought another set to put on the other 570! They wear like Iron.

    My buggy came with XG Crawlers. I replaced them with Terrabites about 500 miles ago and I like them. Pretty good in everything but deep mud.

    I ended up with the xg’s with the terrabites second on the list. Which do you like better and are there any good comparisons so far? They seem to be a very similar tire in most respects.

    Holy crap Batman! Even my super duty which is in a heavy weight class is only $300 or so a year! Even with late fees, that is crazy!

    That's the way it is here in Montana too. The more expensive vehicle you drive, the more it costs for renewal. Stinks... Unless you're me and drive a vehicle older than 10 years, Then I put the permanent plates on it for $150 :D
