Street Tires for Ranger XP 700

I am looking for some suggestions for some street tires for my 2006 Ranger XP. I drive a lot on paved roadways and it is chewing up my off road tires. If you have a suggestion on a good tire as well as a good place to purchase them in Arizona that would be great.

I was looking at these originally for my rhino maybe still might pickup a set when I get my Ranger. Gotta have street tires, the pavement does in fact destroy offroad tires and pretty quick I might add. In a year and about 100 miles on pavement I've wore down my tires on my rhino by 1/2.

You can actually purchase these online through several different places, just google GBC Afterburn Streetforce.

No problem, I've found that there are relatively few DOT tires out there for ATV's/UTV's mainly because they'are not very well liked on the roads for some reason, nevermind the people driving "Smart Cars". Check the specs on the smart car and the Polaris Ranger. The ranger is actually bigger than a smart car HAHA!!.

Haven't purchased my ranger yet, but when money allows this will be probably the 2nd mod I do is to purchase a set of street wheels/tires.

The current tire size from the factory are 26x8x12 and the rear are 26x11x12
is there anyway the same size tire will fit all the way around without using wheel spacers, and are there any benifits to this?

I was wondering the same thing, you can purchase a set of wheels along with those tires that will fit and give the same size front and rear without needing any modifications I would think. I'm not sure how it would work as I haven't had the money to do the swap myself.

The benefits to running the same size tires front/rear are:

1. You only need to carry 1 size tire for a spare when riding trails.
2. You'll be able to rotate the tires as you would on a car to even out wear.
3. Street tires if used on the street as intended will give you better street traction and save your offroad tires for the trails.
