Wow what a tire, wanted higher ply rating with the traction and ride factor, these have it. MotoSports shipped my order lighting quick. I had them mounted almost that fast. I read reviews, I liked the lower PSI also. So far these are Super tires.

Read the other reviews +my neighbors recommendation, looked the best for me. The pullers (front tires) mounted, the pushers (rears) on the way. Can't wait to get them in the mountains for my test. Pictures won't load, look fantastic.
On a Kodiak 700. Great hook up in all terrain but able to break loose if needed. Most recently in snow and have no complaints. They handle well and are quiet at speed. I'm running 4psi and they rip. Clipped a few rocks HARD with no damage. Was sure to look down to a gaping hole only to be bewildered at where it even hit. Solid tire.
Bought two sets of Bearclaws for 2 new 2017 Polaris Sportsmans. So far we've put 60 miles on them on pavement, gravel, dirt, mud, ice, and snow. Here in Montana we've got all of that in March in a single ride! These tires haven't slipped on anything. Very stable and sure footed. Easy steering. They don't rooster tail a bunch of mud on the person following, and they do clean out well. Really pleased..
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,
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.
I bought these tires to go through nice mud and also on gravel trails. they work good on any terrain i ride. and the price was perfect
I ve got a 2011 can am outlander 650 xtp. The tires just roll great in mud snow or whatever. I will buy these tires for all our machines
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.

Question:Q: I have a 2018 maverick trail 800 dps, I would like to up grade my tires to 8 or 10 ply, most recommendations come back as 27x9x12, My stock rims are 6" F and 7.5" R, Would I be better off running 7.5 rims with 27x9x12 all the way aroundQuestion asked 1 year 4 months ago
Question answered by DaveGearheadUser's contributor status: Top 10Question answered 1 year 4 months agoAnswer: A: I am showing your stock front tire size as 26x8-12 and the stock rear tire size as 26x9-12. With that, I think you could probably get away with running 27x9-12 tires all the way around. I would suggest checking with your local Can-Am dealer prior to making your purchase.

Question:Q: Tire SizingQuestion asked Over 5 years agoI 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.
Question answered by MotoSportExpertUser's contributor status: Top 10Question answered Over 5 years agoAnswer: 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.

Question:Q: My stock tire is 25x11-12, will this 25x10R-12 fit?Question asked Over 6 years ago
Question answered by MotoSportRyanTUser's contributor status: MotoSport Staff ExpertQuestion answered Over 6 years agoAnswer: A: Yes, The tires will just be an inch narrower but will still fit the same 12" wheel.
Question answered by DukesUser's contributor status:Question answered Over 6 years agoAnswer: 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!!!

Question:Q: Looking for 8 ply radial in 24x8x11 to match the bearclaw htrQuestion asked Over 6 years ago
Question answered by MotoSportExpertUser's contributor status: MotoSport StaffQuestion answered Over 6 years agoAnswer: 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.
