I agree with Russ. When it comes to tire damage, or any damage to your machine, it is usually the drivers fault. I know they are a big heavy machine, but you are not driving a tank !! You have to be a lot more careful with these, then you are with a 4 wheeler, or damage is going to happen. I installed the Polaris nerf bars, and rear brush guard to help prevent damage to my machine. As for a backup light, check out my post in the mod section.
I have been riding ATV/UTV's for over 16 years now. Yes, I am 32 so maybe I am old, but I have rode the hardest trails with passengers over rocks, woods, and hills, never puncturing a tire. I would take this as my fault if I had been out riding with my friends on open trails drinking beer, but I wasn't. I was driving around the edge of a bean field in Kentucky next to the river, nothing hard or fast. I am very disappointed in paying 12,000 dollars for a machine that gets a flat tire every time you take it off road.
