    I wonder what they have to do to get a tire DOT improved... how the regulation work in that industry. I am sure they have to pay and submit for testing prior to receiving approval.

    RED TAPE! Just ride in a lot of mud before getting on a hi way.

    I wonder what the sidewall max tire pressure is. WI frowns upon tires with a max pressure rating over 20psi

    I run BFG's on my truck and love them so these may be the next tires I get when I have to replace on my pioneer.

    Due to the size being listed as 28x10.00r14 NHS (Non-Highway Service) They may allow it to be on the trails. I would still inquire with your local branch for their understanding of the rule though.

    Been running BFG AT's for years on my trucks and they wear really well because they use a harder rubber compound. Have to stay mindful of psi and rotation intervals or they'll wear uneven and be the worst riding tire you've ever had. Don't know if the MT's are any softer but could make for a stiff ride on a UTV?

    I love the ATS only tire I’ve used on my trucks for last 20 years reg got 50-65k out of a set just depended on how much city vs hwy driving.

    I would tend to ASSUME since they are UTV specific the compound would be much softer.

    Judging by the lug pattern on these I’m not sure how they could claim they’re awesome in mud, there is just too much closed traction for good clean out. Even 2.0 would kick their ass in mud snow from what I see.
    With that being said these are probably great at everything else and I’d sure consider in the dry months. Didn’t see anything on weight which is a concern for me if buying a tire. I’d like to see the review from someone I trust on these!

    Well BFG are heavy in DOT truck tires, I’m not expecting these to be any different.

    My thoughts too. They will be spendy as well. Probably a good tough all around tire that’ll be a little slick in moisture. Probably comparable to the Ripsaws

    Agreed, I’d love to see some Toyo open country AT II in utv size. I absolutely love them on my Titan.

    Yeah but they are actual 10ply in the sizes I always bought I don’t think these will be rated for that kind of weight even if they are 8ply


    This has the possibility of being good if it’s specifically designed for a SXS.

    The mud terrains look like Terrabites or buckshot mudders


    The ATS don’t do very well in muddy terrain on a SxS even relative to the Evos, bighorns, or the like.
