    Default Blackwater XT

    Love 'em, hate 'em? I know WG has these on a bike but was wondering if anyone else has had experience with these?

    The XT's are ok, better than stock but still at the bottom of the pile imo. Unless you get a steal of a deal on the XT's I would look at bugs, mst, XTR's, vamps, or 589's instead.

    Might also look at the Dirt Devil II's 1.25" tread and not too spendy at Alaska Mining and Diving. Myself and a few friends run them and love 'em. We run 27".

    Well, looks like I ended up with a set of Mud Lites. Not my 100% first choice, as WG said, the 589's are one step above, but I'm a sucker for a deal.

    Next question, will a set of rims from a Kodiak 450 bolt up to my AC 500? BTW, how do you find info on the web about stock rim information so you can know what will work on your bike?

    Default rims

    I don't believe that the kodiak rims will fit your Arctic Cat. The yamaha bolt pattern is 4/110, and I am pretty sure the AC are 4/115.

    These are dated a bit, not sure what year you are looking at but it might be here.

    Default XT's

    I've got over 2000 miles on mine and they still have some tread left. I like the 589's better but my XT's have been good and never had a flat.
