So far did ehs tuner and barker duals with quiet inserts (still loud) 27-9-12 and 27-11-12 reptile tires. 1.7 mm shim. It works all around great

Looks great but it need some dirt on it.

We run Reptiles before, real good tire for the price. Only downside, for me, was they are only six ply. After we had around 3-4000 miles on them we started getting sidewall punctures.

Yeah, I'm with reogem. Where's the dirt?!? Lol. No I'm kidding. I love the white but it would never last past the first ride!

That's a great looking rig! I run Reptiles too. Only have about 2,000 miles on them but they've been problem free so far. They get a little hard in the winter so I go back to stock tires for plowing. Now get some mud on it!

What do you mean "only six ply"?
6 plies are heavy duty for an ATV. 8 ply tires only started becoming available in the last 5 years or so with the advent of the exploding SxS market. Prior to that, 6 plies was as much as you could get in an ATV tire.

Now not all 6 plies are created equal. Some use soft rubber or thinner plies, while others used high quality thick rubber. Example is the Interco Vampire. It's 4 plies are thicker than many 6 ply tires, the Maxxis Zilla and ITP Mudlite being 2 very popular examples of these. You can easily run a Vampire with no air pressure and suffer no damage. Probably won't even know it on a lightweight ATV. You simply can't do that with a Zilla or Mudlite.
Not are all 6 ply tires meaning full wrap either. Most only have 6 plies in the tread area only, with 2 or 4 ply sidewalls. Again, the Zilla's and Mudlite's are examples of this.
