I went thru many sets of tires with those low weight ratings on my 2005 RTV . I sold it with over 4200 hours and never was able to wear the tread out on any .All broke down, developed knots etc..- it's documented on here in my post on tires before I bought this 2011 model.
I used the original atv tires that came on my 2011 till they had very little tread and bought my blackwater revolutions with the high weight rating and great traction. . I only got a second set after I ran over a huge pointed stab with the rear tire at perhaps 2000 hrs? . They were wearing down anyway so I bought a complete set and put on the spare rims and mounted them on my machine. I do have the other 3 in the storage room waiting. Since the lug pattern is universal, I always have a spare anyways. bordercollie

I found this in an old thread : I went to the Mudlite XLs, XTRs, and now the 589's. :
I put back on the WS tires when I sold the 2005 because the grippers were not holding up. Also must add that one of the early sets were replaced by warranty and did the same thing as far as breaking down so that would be 4 sets I went through on the 2005 keeping the WS put up in storage. . I do use my machine on a family cattle farm so the loads are heavy most of the time. bordercollie

Good stuff here. This issue gets discussed frequently but always good to add more info. It's very hard to find tires that are rated high enough to meet the capacity of the RTV.

I think the importance of that issue is totally relevant to use.

In bordercollie's case above she is offering valuable lesson information. Your personal use may vary.

Default Tires

The tires I put on are 6 ply also.Same as Kubota used stock they must figure these are for trail riding mostly. If you are going to haul heavy often probably not your best choice.Plus ck tire pressure often a low tire will kill any tire .For me this tire is doing just fine.We must remember these are not tractors or trucks.JOE

I consider my RTV a mini Diesel 4x4 Truck with dump bed. I've hauled many loads that the hydraulics will barely dump. I've hauled a few that I had to lift on the bed while using the hydraulics to get it started.

Curious Richard what the heck are you hauling!? I donít disagree, I use mine like a dump truck too but even when the beds spilling over with gravel itís always dumped before I could even get my head turned around to see where itís going! Which btw is why I bought a hydro dump.

Dirt mostly. Gravel is light per cubic foot.

Thanks. Yeah the rack was a great addition.

Me too on the Summer thing. Our frost is almost gone now. I used the backhoe and dug up a large elm stump this morning.

I've got some small seeding projects to do this Spring. May get that done next week if we miss our current rain chances.
