I have the factory tires on my raptor and I have the proper amount of air in them. I also only weigh about 170. I ride in rocky conditions and I have punctured the front tire sidewalls on rocks. Does anyone have any suggestions on replacements front and back. All I do is occasional trail riding. Thanks for any suggestions.

The factory tires are only good for drag racing, they don't slide worth a darn and they cut like butter. Get yourself some good Holeshot XCTs in 22" and a 12 tooth front sprocket, you'll be all set for rocky trail riding :tup: :tup: Also, get a good 1/4" thick swingarm skidplate.

all I have to do is agree with Ubetrun. he has a catalog of what i did. NO flats with XCTs. none. good skidplate essential.

i got bandits up front and they work awesome. i like the way they are flat instead of rounded. they stick to the ground very wwell and dont slide at all on any surface. not even in the snow really.
