Really impressed with these tires.

They ran great in the snow and slush, cleaned out pretty good in the mud and can be power slid when you need and the hook up is great!

But where these tires really showed up was lateral traction, the mark of a great tire. Sorry Bighorns, these beat ya' hands down.

We were on some pretty nasty angled trails and I didn't have to keep steering towards the top over and over...they just didn't slide AT ALL!

They are a little heavier than most aftermarkets, but the trade-off is worth it.

Keep in mind that these are on a Teryx, so a quad could be different as far as ride quality, but if its a UTV your buying for, you can't go wrong.

I'd buy another set in a heartbeat!

We have been selling them for over a year and everyone has loved them. the sidewalls are holding up great with the extra weight of utv's also. will give 2 thumbs up on them also!

Irish , I believe the Rip Saws are a more All-Around tire . Zillas are mostly made for mud . Rip Saws should be a much better ride , but Zillas would be much better in a mud bog .

I was going to go Pitt Bulls , but I'm sure Rip Saws would be cheaper .

I should point out that $$$ had absolutely nothing to do with my decision. They are cheaper than Bighorns, Pit Bulls and the Zillas. Seeing as I am not mudding most of the time, i went with an all around tire. Just wish they had them in 27".

Give em some time....they start selling like crazy and I'm sure the price will go up.

Irish, I think they would look cool and work great on one of your trikes!

i haven't tried any sedona tires, but this is the first time i've heard any good about them. maybe it was the buzz saws, but the other 3 or 4 people i've heard that have tried them didn't like them.
the zillas look more aggressive than they really are. they are a little lumpy, but do well in most situations.
i rode with the guys from ATVTorture in WV last fall. one had a set of pitbull rockers and i was just amazed at how well they performed. i mean the guy had stuff flinging off his tires when the ground was hard there was nothing to fling! the price is more than i'd ever pay for a set of quad tires, but they were impressive!
keep us posted on the long term with the sedona's. i'm in the market for a set of tires for the 550 and i have looked at them. they look great, i just hadn't heard any good about them.

I got some Sedona Rip Saw's last year, and I've been very impressed with them.

My local shop told me about these when I was looking at the Mudlite Radials. I didn't realize the Mudlites were almost $170 per tire for the radials. He told me all the oil field workers were buying the rip saws for the quads and that they had really good reviews.

I saved almost $60 per tire going with the Sedona's, and I'm glad I did!

I was warned about RMATV and checked mine thoroughly. The beads were not set completely on all 4 tires not to mention the circlips on the inside of the center caps were just thrown in and twisted. Had I left them, my centers would surely be laying in the woods somewhere...

People were have vibration issues. Like I said, though, someone did find the balance messed up due to the beads not set in like 3 or 4 places on eeach tire, like mine.

Also remember, big difference in tire pressure between a quad and SXS. I have mine at 11 and 13, front and rear, respectively.

I will definitely keep updating as i go. Longevity and sidewall strength is sure to follow!

Got out this past weekend. @ 5" of snow on the ground, not to mention the drift I got stuck in. High centerted, so any other tire wouldn't have helped!LOL

REALLY impressed with these. I just can't say enough about the bite these things get! They do sling alot of mud...its GREAT!

Still loving them! I did get some more slicing of the lugs due to spinning heavily on some slate rock. Pretty much expected on any large lug tire. We were riding pretty aggresively also, the first real hard riding on the Teryx.

Also, got a piece of metal, like @ the size of a penny nail. Didn't leak at all while it was in there, but yanked it out and plugged it anyhow. Not the tire's fault.

Did I mention I love these tires??? thumbs

Do you guys think these would be too heavy for a grizz 450 ? I hear they are much heavier than stock .

I put 26" rip saws on my 500 sportsman last summer and love them!! Yes, they are heavier than stockers but i don't notice any power loss.. And the performance over stock is worth the extra weight!!
