One of the most simple and economical ways to improve the performance of your ATV or SxS is to add a set of aftermarket tires to your rig.

For the last six months, I’ve been torturing a set of Sedona Ripsaw RT tires on my Yamaha Rhino 700. The area that I typically ride in is littered with sharp blast rock left over from decades of coal mining. Those rocks are like razor blades, and they’ve claimed the lives of countless tires during my excursions over the years.

At first look, the aggressive Rip Saw RT’s deep 1 1/8-inch tread guarantees that these tires are designed for extreme off-roading. The heavy-duty 6-ply construction is very durable; the tires never suffered a puncture during the time I spent rock crawling, mud bogging, and trail riding. Snow and mud traction was impressive since the tread wraps around the sidewall and is designed to clean out debris as the tire spins. The radial construction helps deliver a smooth ride, no matter if the terrain is rough or smooth.

Ripsaw RT tires are heavy and will rob your machine of horsepower. I’d recommend they be used on big-bore ATVs and SxSs equipped with the power and driveline strength to turn them. With that said, if your machine has enough guts to handle these aggressive tires, there’s almost no terrain they can’t conquer.

If it’s time to buy your machine a new set of shoes, the Sedona Ripsaw RT is an excellent choice.
