Looks awesome, ive seen a few folks on the Can-am site I'm on, that have them, and they all really liked them, i talked to one guy via a PM, wheni was looking for tires for my can-am, and he had just got the Evo's, and was very happy with them.

Just put them on my viking wondering what people reviews on them
When I was researching tires, it came down to these or the Pit Bull Rockers. I have friends running both....and nobody has any complaints. They are heavy, like the Pit Bulls...but that's what you get with an 8 ply tire. AWESOME in the rocks and they track very well on all surfaces. Also very good in the mud and snow. The only reason I went with the PB's is because they have just a bit more flex and ride just a tiny bit smoother. I think my friend is running 9 or 10lbs psi in his. If you were looking for a rugged tire....you got it!

What size are you running?

Looks awesome I'm planning on getting those too, how's the viking handle the 28's without the clutch kit?

Thanks...missed that.

Ashley202, you and I both are right on the edge as far as possibly needing a clutch kit. I don't know what kind of riding you do but you might want to check into this. I have the 27's, but will pretty much be in the rocks and shale. If you are going to be in the heavy mud...I would recommend reading all of the threads Hunterworks has on here.

Yap looking at the clutch kits it took some power away the riding I do is a lot of trails and mud holes I had a rhino with 28 mud lites on it with epi clutch kit then I put in the Kms wet clutch kit weights and it mad a big difference so going to do it to the viking once I get some money

Tires look really nice. Looks like they have really good traction.

Do they make the Viking sit higher up as well, or are they the same height as the stock tires? Were they pricey?

I bought the same tire, same size and love them. The thing is unstoppable in normal riding conditions, I had had it almost up to the seats in thick mud and it chugged right through, wear like iron so far. Very good tire. I bought Rhino SE wheels (to keep stock width) and powder coated them black, looooks good!

Thanks for the info on the Blackwaters.
Just ordered a set of 14" Rims and 2 x 28 x 10 x 14 and 2 x 28 x 11 x 14 Blackwaters.
Where I ride in Northen Saskatchewan we are not far from the Canadian Sheild Rock Formation so there are lots of sharp rocks. Lots of creeks with big rocks at the bottom to scramble over. With the stock tires it was just hammering to get across.
Keep everyone posted about which cluch kits to get into, I would be interested.
