2nd set. Great grip. Great durability Wouldn't have bought again if they weren't. Goes through just about anything except the worst Mississippi gumbo mud. For that, you need a dedicated mud tire. Will continue to buy these tires. Kenda... Don't change a thing! Motosport...Thanks for for being Motosport.

This is my second set of Bear Claw's which tells you already what I generally think abut this tire. I went through the typical debate over bias vs radial and decided that the weight savings + cost savings was enough for me to go bias. This set is on my 2011 grizzly and the previous is on a 2007 Sportsman. I use them all year long having deep snow starting in November switching to trail/off trail in April. The ride does have a little vibration due to the aggressive tread, but when you are off road it isnt really noticeable. The grip is much improved over the stock tires. Since I havent used any other non stock tires I cant say how they stack up against them. Regarding wear, I cant say just yet as I havent logged a significant amount of miles on the Sportsman yet and my Grizzly is my ride of choice.
Overall my early experience is favorable and the price from Motosport just cant be beat. I would recommend this product be purchased from this vendor.
The tires have been great, good value, good traction, etc. The problem is that the way they were shipped (with one nested inside of the other), my local mechanic could not get them to properly seal on the rim. In the end, he had to tube one out of four of the tires, which is disappointing.
My 06' Sportsman 500 EFi has 26x8R12 on front and 26X11R12 on rear. Your website list's Front 25X8R12 rear 25X11R12 .
I would like to put the same size tires that it has now.
Why does your website list 25" instead of 26"
We do have these tires available in 26" inch size. The only difference is the front tire will be a 26x9x12 instead of the 26x8x12. This means the front tire will be one inch wider. This will not cause any clearance issues and will still fit your stock wheel just fine.
