Hey guys!!

I'm on the market for tires right now, and was wondering what are most FTR's running.

I really wanted to throw some Maxxis Razr2's on my quad, but they're a bit rich for my blood, hehe.

I am down to three tires right now, which are ITP Holeshots. The HD's, XCR's and the GNCC's. All 3 have good reviews on them, and i was just wondering if any of you guys run any of them, and your input on it.

plain ole Razr's are pretty popular for the rear and Razr II's for the front

+1. Go for the 6 ply though. Believe the Razr 2 are only 6 but the regular Razrs come in 4 and 6.
They also have the "Xc" series now.

I have run Razar 2 for years they are great in the mud and durable. Last year I switched to The new Maxxis Xc on the rear and Razar 2 on the front. The new Xc have less side bite then the Razar2 and In my opinion have better forward bite in sand, mud, and hard pack. They clean out nice in the mud. They hooked up great in the mud at Samsula. The Xc cost a few dollors less then the 2's . The cons for the Xc is that the compound is softer so I don't think they will last as long as the 2's. Jury is still out on this. I will absolutely buy another set of the Xc when these wear out

I ran the ITP HD and the GNCC tires last year. I am now on Razr rear with Razr 2 fronts. While the Razr has good front bite, I feel the rear slides way too easy.
I will be switching back also.

Anybody that is interested though, The ITP tires are still made in the USA, Maxxis is cheng shin China. That alone would switch me back.

Ive had ITP xcr for A couple years never had any problems except there not very tall. Now I just got A new set of Vee Rubber Venom GNCC Tires. The tread pattern is very similar to the xcr but on steroids.The tread is about 3/4in. deep. You can buy them of e bay or call him direct. There 160.00 for the pair plus 21.00 for shipping if your interested. EASTCOASTATV 610-282-0369

Thanks for the replies. I was leaning towards the xcr's, and it seems the the best choice.
ITP's being made in the US is a plus too.

Ted, i will definetly check those tires out.
