Rice and Cane Tires???

An implement company from Arkansas built specialty wheels and ordered rice and cane tires from japan a few years back. Back then, there were few atvs that could turn them or that could fit them under the wheel wells. The few times someone showed up at FWP with this setup on Honda 300s, they dominated the mud races against SP500s. I have looked for a set of these high and low and am unable to find a set. If you know of someone with a set sitting around, let me know.

    These tires are about 31-32 Inches tall and 3 inches wide. They cut through thich mud like it is water. They cut through water like they are on the trail.

    Prepping for Nationals, greg? Why not run 28x12.5 Outlaws, I heard from the grapevine that a Rincon can spin them with an air filter.

    Here is a pic of the setup on Tex's website... Notice Sims in the lead drink a beer and having a snack while smoking the compeition.

    http://www.ansley.net/media.php?pintMediaID=833

    he is another shot... the blue Honda

    http://www.ansley.net/media.php?pintMediaID=832

    You can see him behind me here... sime sure got the jump on this guy, but he caught up due to the bad line chosen by me... I went deep on accident.

    http://www.ansley.net/media.php?pintMediaID=831

    Here is another shot of me in last place before David and the other guy flipped. I drove around them, but the guy on the Honda was impossible to catch. On the other side of the pod, the water and mud was about a 18" deep and that thing cut through like you would not believe.

    http://www.ansley.net/media.php?pintMediaID=829

    Just a cool pic of TaxGrizz (David) hitting the water while racing.

    http://www.ansley.net/media.php?pintMediaID=836

    Looking at these pics makes me want to buy some tires and get back into the game.

    Yeah, I have searched for some time. I thought about this two year ago and tracked it down to the place in Arkansas that made the wheels. They said that orders were so slow with the batch they sold, that they would not order anymore. They had to have the tires shipped from Japan 1000 at a time. So, they only purchased one batch. if i could remember the name of the place, I will try to have them track down a used set for me. I am old, maybe it will come to me later.

    Here is a list of tractor tread tires sizes, from just one of many companies... note that the weights are less than several bigger mud tires... also note that you'll need at least 14" or 15" wheels...

    there are several wheel companies that make these custom wheels... I'd be happy to turn ya on to Keizer wheels... they made a custom set of double bead locks for me...

    Mike,
    These tires are not what I am looking for. The tires in that link are 6-7-7+ Inches wide. I am looking for something similar to what you see on those wagon wheels in my link. They are around 3.5" wide.

    I got a freind here in Vicksburg Mississippi with A set. They are 32" tall and more skinny than my hand. He had to take the fenders off of his 300 Fourtrax to run them. It barly pulls thems but will walk the dog if he doesn't stop in a hole. I will see if he wants to sale them. I know for a fact this is what your looking for cuase my jaw hit the ground the first time I ever saw the ATV. [Thumb]

    I have found several brands of tires, most are 6" or 7" wide, & up to 31" tall, most either fit 14" 0r 15" rims... some as light as 20 lbs... I haven't found anythig except much smaller diameter tires narrower than 6"...

    Mike, the 31" tires, how much tread? And how much cost? Rims are no problem for a honda or polaris.

    I've been to so many tire sites lately... keep an eye on this post, I'll start posting links to tires as I find them here... most of the tires in this size, list for between $75.00 & $100.00

    this is a wierd looking tire, but it fits the size perameters... the others, when I relocate them, will be standard tractor tread...

    http://www.firestoneag.com/tiredata/garden/gtr_farm_ser v_lugm.asp

    this will give you guy's something to look at... I've got to get some work done today ...LOL... note that these are major tire manufacturers, I'll post a few more links later...

    http://www.titanstore.com/store/agricultural.html

    http://www.galaxytire.com/agr_reartr_r1.shtml

    note that some of these tires are 29"-31" tall & weigh in, in the low to mid 20#... which if you check it out, is pretty light for a true mud tire, even much smaller than that... if a custom aluminum rim is used, much more power can be put to the slop...
