First Radial ATV tires I ever owned. I am not your average rider as my ATV is also my Off Road Wheelchair. I was a Wildland Firefighter until I got injured. before my injuries I loved to hike but now I can't walk so needless to say I ride my ATV in very remote areas and I require a Great Tire that can handle from Mud to Pavement and everything inbetween. At first I ran them at 2 to 2.5 psi but they proved squiggly and clunky in the ride so I did 3 psi then 4 psi but after some trails mud rocks and pavement I have come to find 5 psi works the best for me. I have rode about 250 miles on them so far on some very rough and nasty rocky to mud bog trails, done some serious rock crawling and about 25 miles on the pavement and not a nick or cut one so I am very impressed with the STI Black Diamonds.

STI Tire & Wheel has now released a new diamond in the rough: Black Diamond. This super-versatile new ATV / UTV tire is designed to deliver crossover performance - an ideal choice for all terrain types and all seasons - at a value price.
The Black Diamond's innovative "V" tread pattern bridges the gap between soft mud / snow / sand and hardpack surface capabilities. Its unique over-center tread elements provide a smooth, controlled ride on hardpack, while offering excellent traction and clean-out in soft conditions. The Black Diamond's 6-ply radial carcass was developed specifically to provide the stability needed for side-by-side UTV applications, while retaining the plush ride characteristics favored by ATV riders. An extended-wear tread compound retains biting edges longer and greatly increases tire life.
The Black Diamond is now available in two models and more than 30 sizes. The Black Diamond ATR features a 3/4-inch tread lug.
- Tire diameter: 22.2".
- Tire width: 11".

Good sturdy tires ships fast. And great customer service thru take cRe if their customers
I purchased two full sets of tires for my Honda Ranchers. The tires were mounted easily and look great. My son in law and I took the units out for a test drive in the Texas Hill Country. We treked through heavy brush, extremely loose river rock, and rock hopped a few hundred yards. The tires performed great and gripped when it mattered most. I highly recommend Black Diamonds.
Recently installed a set on my 2015 Polaris Ranger. Ride is smooth on hard pack and tires handle the mud with ease. Even surprised with how quiet the ride is. I would recommend these tires to everyone.
REARS CAME FOLDED IN QUITE AN EFFORT TO GET THEM PUSHED OUT. RADIALS ARE THE WAY TO GO. STEERS LIKE POWER STEERING AND LOW ROLLING RESISTANCE. BEST PRICE ANYWHERE BY FAR. WORK GREAT ON MY RHINO. FAST FAST DELIVERY.
I don't know about the durability yet but they appear to be well made and look as advertised.
Can't say enough good things about the tires or the service. When I talked to Jake after we had problems with one of the tires; he couldn't have been more helpful and he promised a replacement tire as soon as he could get one in stock and it didn't take long. It came today and I was totally shocked that it got her so fast. I am totally pleased with your company and especially kudos to Jake. Thank you
For the money these radials are the best for off road as well as on pavement riding I have found. You just do not have any problems with them.
I am so glad that I bought these tires because they really grip well and ride smooth on hard pack and being 6 ply the will hold up to the rocky terrain that we have here. Put these tires on the front of my 2002 Polaris 500 H.O. 4x4 and plan on getting a set for the back, can't beat Motosport's prices and free shipping.
I have had three sets of these tires on three different ATV's. On two I logged over 2600 miles total in just a few months without a single issue with these tires. 90 percent of my off roading was in two wheel drive without getting stuck once. These tires also handle very well on Hard surfaces like pavement. They do not squirm like bas type ATV tires on pavement. I would recommend these tires to anyone.
