    These are the only pics I've found of the warthog tires. No info at all on them that I can find

    Don't know much about the Tusk tires-

    Was thinking they were a low cost option for awhile, but these seem like they're a better tire? 8 ply and pretty decent tread pattern on them!

    Just don't have any experience with them! Wonder how well they cover their products?

    From what I've seen they seem to be a great tire. They are Rocky Mountain atv's in house tire brand from what I've gathered. The terrabites seem to have a ton of reviews across all the forums online. Everybody loves them

    The terrabite is a kanati mongrel tread pattern with a pro armor crawler side wall

    I just really wanted some info on the warthogs

    Well finally after 3 phone calls and 2 emails I figured out the load ratings on the warthogs. 29x9x14 is 850 and 29x11x14 is 920. I feel pretty comfortable with those numbers.

    My only complaint is that the tusk brand is a in house brand of Rocky Mountain atv. It was like pulling teeth trying to get those 2 numbers. You would think a company that has there own line of tires would know a bunch on specs. Well I can assure you that was not the case

    Sounds like pretty good load rating numbers! I like the tighter tread pattern of the Terribite myself, less openings to have something to get through and puncture the carcass. Have my first set of Kanati Mongrels on their way today for a customer. Interested to see them up close! should be here in 3 shipping days.

    If you don't mind post some pictures when you get them in. I've narrowed it down to those 2. I just worry about the tighter tread pattern packing full of sticky mud

    2016 RZR XP 1000

    Thought I posted here on Tusk tires, guess not?

    I've sold many sets of Terrabites. All seem to love them & yes, they've been getting good reviews even on Eactcoast trail riding. Had a guy in TX with 5 RZRs order 20, he's happy with them. I've had 1 customer recently want a refund & return his. He mounted them, went for a ride & liked them. Said the next day went for a ride and they all flattened out on 1 side. Just from sitting 1 day. They are to be Radials, but stamped Nylon. RM told me they are a Radial Nylon 8 ply & all he needed to do is ride a few miles, they should return to normal. Customer swears he tried & still wanted to return them. No other issues.

    I run the Warthogs. They are new & I was looking for tires for my own ride. The tread looks damn good. They are like the Terrabite but with the tread spaced out more for better clean out. I haven't had them out on trails yet but I don't foresee any issues with these things!

    I've decided I'm going with the warthogs. Little more aggressive than the terrabite and should work really well for me. Just need to get the funds in line and pull the trigger on them

    I've tried talking with Rocky Mountain about them. The one guy I talked to didn't even know tusk was their in house brand of tires lmao since you sell them is there any way you give me load ratings on the 28x10x15? Rocky Mountain was little to no help

    Found in the Q&A area on their site, 830# for the 29". Can't imagine the 28"x15 be much off from that. I have the 30x14 & they are stamped max load 1,000lbs

    Yeah that was me that asked that question when I was thinking about going with the 29s. I just wasn't to confident with the answer they gave me after speaking to a couple guys on the phone about them

    Just rode with a guy in Arizona that had 2200 miles on his 30" Terabites on his RZR turbo. They good great and he loves them and has had no issues with them. Hard to beat for the price.

    Teryx4

    I just put on tusk warthogs 27x9x14 and 27x11x14 on my 2017 teryx4 le. They are very good tires. I have about 30 miles so far on them. Soaks up the bumps, grips very well on dry pack and rocks. I did drive about 5 miles on asphalt, did nothing to tread or lugs. I know there is not alot of reviews out there on these, but i think they will be a great tire.

    Thanks chad and welcome to sxs nation. I've decided I'm buying them for sure. They look way better in person then the stock photos I've seen online. Now I just need to figure out which wheels I want

    When I do my upcoming build, I am between the crawler xg and the terrabite. Terrabites have great reviews and the price is unbeatable. BUT, I really like what I am hearing about the crawlers. If I shop a bit, I can get them within $20-30 a tire. Decisions decisions
