Excellent tires

This makes my second set kenda bearclaws and they work great in all terrain. I ride about 750 to 1000 mile a year and theses tires have not let me down. The first set worked great too, but where damaged by cheap after market rims,

If youre thinking about it, dont hesitate

the stock carlisle tires on my sportsman were 4 ply and 100 bucks a pop each (best price i found) i tore them up pretty quick (only about 15 hours on my quad before i needed new ones) these are 8 ply with a decent amount of tread... ive beat on them hard so far at a rock crawl area and a clear cut loggin site. buy them.

Best tire I have found.

After many hours of research looking for a stock replacement tire for my 2008 500 Rubicon. I settled on the Kenda HTR Bear Claws. I wanted a Radial that was not to aggressive and offered a fairly smooth ride. Once mounted by a local tire shop I ran them at 10 PSI for approx. 75 miles to run them in before dropping the pressure back down to 7 PSI. I could not tell any difference in the ride or handling with the pressure change. These tires ride very smooth and very quit considering the tread pattern. I have never felt any vibration or bar shake at any speed from 0 to 50 mph. I normally cruise at around 25 mph on open trails and steering is smooth and easy. I have put over 3000 miles on them riding everything from black top roads to loose gravel. In very slick mud such as red clay and slick off camber riding I have found that they do not offer the greatest side bite in an ATV tire. With the wear I have gotten from these tires. The lack of Side bite is honestly not worth mentioning but I have only to let others know where side bite may be a greater factor when choosing a tire. I am not a gut & mud rider that hits every mud hole that I encounter. But rather a trail rider that likes to get out and ride old dirt trails and roads with some paved thrown in. The Bear Claw HTR;s have preformed far better than I had ever expected and even with over 3000 miles have shown very little wear. These are by far the best ATV tire that I have ever owned and will choose them again if and when this set ever wears out. I am think that may be awhile.

Great Tire

After reading all the reviews on numerous tires, I finally settled on the Kenda Bearclaw HTR. I had them mounted on the factory rims on my 2011 Polaris 850. What a difference over the stock tires! I had to go from 26x8x14's(front) and 26x10x14's(back) to 26x9x14 and 26x11x14's because of the very limited availability of the original size stock tire. They handled the trails I ride flawlessly. Everything from loose rock,downed trees,to moderate mud. I anxious to try them in the snow this year. Shipping was amazingly fast. Had them in three days.

Great Tire

Just got them delivered, Had them mounted and then put the atv up for winter. Looks like a really tough tire. They look smaller in size then stock ones, Wish I had gone up a size for looks!!
Service and fast delivery were top notch from Motosport!!

Awesome tire

Great tire for the $, HUGE improvement over stock. i went one size bigger, 26x11x12 rear and 29x9x12 front with no clearance issues. Do get a little shake over 50 mph but thats to be expected to some extent. No complaints! Cant wait to see how they do with the plow!

The Kendas are beefy with 2 more plys and heavier than the OEM's. Our OEM's suffered from 'dry rot' - like sunstroke... in Cle Elum! Tread pattern is more aggressive so probably should replace all 4.

Best tire ever for new England rock climbing. Super thick sidewall and great traction. Not bad for mudding either.

Best radial value

I was looking at BIGHORNS and found these. Tread is a bit deeper than BH, and price to my door was about half BH.
Radial ride and a handling at 4PSI is same as BH, and these run true to size, perhaps a hair more.
Add the terrific bead protection and 8 ply rating and have a great, TOUGH tire.

Q: Tire Sizing?
2 years 3 months ago
I own a 2013 Polaris Sportsman 400 HO.I would like to know if 26X9X12 will fit the front and if 26X11X12 will fit on the rear without any spacers or modification.I do mostly trail riding and was wondering how this tire would perform. I ride conservatively.

A: We have the stock tire sizes listed for most all models on our website. Please be sure that you have the proper machine in your “shopping for” selection. We do NOT have a listing of alternative sizes available for your machine. We suggest staying with the stock sizing as changing the size can cause issues with handling, reliability, rubbing and could have adverse effects on performance.

A: Yes, The tires will just be an inch narrower but will still fit the same 12" wheel.
2 years 2 months ago Location: Northern Maine
A: Sure will, The 10R is 1 inch narrower and the "R" is Radial configuration. You should run Radials in the front if you are putting them on the rear. if you don't you will run into front and rear gear ratio differences and will cause problems with differentials locking up!!!

Q: Says it will fit, but you sure a 12" will fit on a 11" rim?

A: For this tire to fit your 2005 Rancher you would need a 12" rim. With how common it is to modify the wheel and tire size on ATV's, tires will get profiled to fit many units because technically they can fit with the correct wheel. We have no way to determine what size wheel you may be running so we do provide the specs for the stock wheels/tires and ask that you do verify what you have before placing the order so receive the correct items. If you do have the stock 11" rear wheel, you will need to look at tires that are designed for an 11 " wheel, which can be found here :

Q: Looking for 8 ply radial in 24x8x11 to match the bearclaw htr?

A: Unfortunately you are not going to find an 8 ply tire that small. The 8-ply tires are designed for UTV's and the largest ATV's. None of them will use a tire that small. Your best bet is going to be to go with a 6 ply tire. Even those tires available in that sizing are very limited to the ITP Mud Lite, and the STI Black Diamond radial.
