Jut got a set of ITP>ATRS. At high speed on asphalt they seem to bounce around alot more than the original tires. more agrressive tread?? I was told by the dealer who installed them to run 8 lbs of pressure in them to prevent sidewall punctures. They told me they had quite a few who were running less and getting sidewall punctures. I can't believe the way they handle in the corners though> almost totally prevents diving/rolling that was common with the stockers.

I have the ATR's on mine and don't run that high of pressure. I run 4 lbs in the front, 3.5 lbs in the rear. Haven't had any problems and we ride in some pretty rough stuff. It does track a little different at high speed, I think due to the tire being more square. You could try adjusting the toe.

Brette told me a while ago to run the mudlites at 7 psi... They just don't perform as well at 7 as they do 4... I don't know why they want to run them so high?

Rode tough terrain for the 1st time on my new ATRS. All I can say is >>>WOW! I kept them at 8 lbs of pressure and they were flawless! In another post I stated that I went through a mud hole that a Foreman 450, Vinson 500(in low gear) and a Polaris 500 H.O.(in low gear with new mud lites) couldn't get through! It grabs the ridges with the wider stance and kept me out of the deep ruts. I'm Happy!!!!
