AG Tires

I’m looking for feedback from people who have switched to ag tires. It seems to be the trend and I’m guessing there is a reason for it. How do these tires do in sand and soft stuff? Due to the narrow width I would think not well but i see tons of people running them in sandy creek/river areas. Also how do they do on the trails with logs and hard pack hills?

    Ever driven a tractor? If you have it answers your questions. Farmers want tires that pull, last, and clean well. A tractor with crappy tires is useless. So they will pull but will want to dig to china looking for hard ground. Being skinny has their advantages. Wheel speed being #1. Also look at the size of ag tires people are running along with the cost. So most ATV tires stop at 32-36" on a 14" rim and cost a small fortune. I got my interco interforce II's shipped to my door for $600 and they are mounted on 16" wheels. So by the time I got my wheels and tires I was cheaper than all similar sized big name ATV tires alone. Now there are tried and true ATV tires such as the outlaw and the silverbacks. Both tires perform very well and I still own sets of both and switch them regularly depending on where I ride. Mainly where I see ag tires is on big sxs with big lifts that can fit huge tires and be on the cheap. I believe most ATVs are running the outlaws and silverbacks. As far as sand if you look at tractor tires the tread changes by location. So up north where the soil has more sand the tread becomes less aggressive and the tire gets wider. So again ag tires like an R1 which most people are running is not good for sand. As for trail riding the tires are hard and will skate on you on inclines and high speeds and depending on the size of the log it may or may not cross it due to the tires being hard. Man I could go on and on but I hope this helps.

    Thanks for the input. I should probably just stick with my Outback Max. They’re a great all around tire. I just had an itch to try something different.
