That's what vulcanizing is for.


I have a shop 3 miles from my house that does it an they do a great job.

OK!! The verdict is in.. I went with the Duro Power grips and a new set of ITP steel rims. Why steel? These are going to be my riding tires and rims..I Don't want to mess up my nice aluminum ones on the rocks. I am saving the old tires and rims for everyday riding. banana

This is perfectly said....

When riding the Grizzly 700 this past fall down at Hatfield McCoy trails..a "sharp" rock, punctured the side wall of the ITP Mudlite XTR, 15 minutes into the ride...and being a brand new tire to boot..had to use a tube for the remainder of the trip..got home and didn't even think of using the "vulcanizing" avenue. I now know where to get this done (locally)...if needed in the future.

So when looking into some new "shoes" for my Polaris...I looked long and hard...and here was my choice..

26" EFX Moto MTC tires, with 14" MSA Patriot rims...a very nice combination...6ply all over....





If this doesn't work...I don't know what will....

Good thread....Kurt
