I'm going to be putting some new tires on here in a few weeks and was wondering what size i should get my currents tires are 25x10-12 and 25x8-12's i was told by vforcejohn to not go over 26's since my little 360 don't have allot of power. so my question is some of the tires i like they don't have in the exact widths as my current tires. so can i say put a 26x11 or 12 for the rear instead of a 25x10.oh I'm liking the executioners any other tires i should consider i will probably be doing allot of trail riding with some mudding so any help would be appreciated

For me I'd personally be happier with 25x10x12 & 25x8x12 especially for a 360cc quad. 26" would be max, but probably not ideal. PLUS 1-extra inch probably isnt going to do all that much for you (in that light it may not hurt you much either). Most important thing is that you choose a tire that is lightweight. Weight will hurt (or help) you the most. If you could find a 26" tire that is lighter than the tires you are running now.... that'd be good!

We have a Prairie 360 and put on Kenda Bear Claws 26x9x12 on the front and 26x12x12 on the back. So far they are great way better tire then the stocks! The stock tires IMO were junk they weren't good in any type of dirt. These Bear Claws are good in mud good in snow and hard packed trails and they ride nice and smooth. Hills that the Prairie couldn't get up because it would just spin it will walk up now. Places it was so muddy we would have to pull it out l can now stop in it and just get right out. They didn't effect the top end like l thought they would top end is the same as always. Plus you gain some more ground clearance which you will notice as soon as you sit on it. Hope this helps later Mike.

I put Swamp lites on the wife's 360 and it really helped the quad out overall. I like the looks and the ride A LOT MORE now than I did. I am running 9's in the front and 10's in the rear on SS 108's. They ride well in all situations.

Mine are on stock rims. My 26x9x12's don't rub at all on the front. Here are the bearclaws before they were mounted. Sorry l don't have any good pic's of them on the Dog yet. Also the bear claws are one of the cheapest tires to buy on the market.
