I've been running the Tusk Terrabyte from rocky mountain atv:


They have more of a truck all terrain tread and work pretty well overall. The only issue I've had was on some slick rock off road with a nasty side hill angle, they slipped a bit, but still got me through.

There's no differential so id suggest bias ply golf cart tires, the narrowest you can stand. Sharp turns still be hard on the c.v. joints.

Ok thank you. Please define a sharp turn. I only will be turning at most 90 degree turn. Just looking to drive to work. 12 miles away one way.

I can't speak for Mudmaze, but consider this: A 90° turn can take a mile to do, or it can be done at full lock steering.

You shouldn’t run these machines on the road because they have a special diff lock thats always on and the road damages it they are only made to go short distances on the road

As for as I know, the original ACE's have no differential. They are effectively a solid axle. My friend and I have ridden ours on pavement with no problems - except for excessive rear tire wear when going around corners. My 900 Rzr trail has a lockable differential. Normally it is in one wheel drive like most cars, but can be switched to 2 or 3 wheel drive. 4WD means being able to lock both the front and rear differentials.
