    Default Run Flat ATV Tires

    Wonder what the tread patterns and life that will be available.

    looks like they wouldn't do to well in the mud . I like the idea though.

    Love the idea. That was my concern too though. I wonder if Polaris needs some testing with Alaskan mud.

    Can you imagine how heavy those would be once the honeycomb was full of mud and dirt? Yikes!

    Watch the video as the tires are crawling over riprap rock - they readily spin. Oops.

    Real ATV tires must stick to rock. I wonder how it handles underwater rocks during stream crossings? If they're as rock-slippery as I suspect, they'd be way dangerous when they're under water.
