I’ve only put 7 miles on my talon x, I love it. I am wondering if I’d be able to put 14” rims with 30” tires. I just think I might want a little more side wall on the tires for a little plusher ride. The mountains I ride have lots of rocks.  If anyone knows if it’s possible or better yet. Some pictures would be appreciated.

My buddy at Rocky Mountain ATV just called me back. He recommended the Tusk Terrabite Radial, or the Tusk Terrabite Kevlar Tires. 

Here is a link where you can build your own tire/Wheel package with choices that fit the Talon X perfectly. I have bought from RMATV and their Tusk brand parts for many years, dating back to when I raced Motocross. Tusk is good value for the money and the Terrabite tires are well known to be tough. 

Check em out here -Talon X Tire and Wheel builder link   

Use the tool to pick front or back tires and scroll down for wheels.  RMATV used to sponsor me, their Cust svc and return policies are top notch. 

I'm getting the Tusk Terrabite Kevlar tires from them when my X gets here.

The Tusk Kevlar Terrabite tire is the ultimate all terrain tire for your UTV or ATV. The bead to bead Kevlar belting gives this race tested tire unparalleled protection from sidewall tears while also increasing durability in the tread...
