    I like the ripsaws, on my 3rd set. My 27's just barely kiss the front shock reservoir on fast and very bumpy trails The lowest I go is about 12psi because of all the rocks, without tracks I add air for additional GC for mud and snow. Too low of air pressure will increase you odds for pinch flats. I hope your 28s continue to work for you. Fully loaded we are talking about 2000 # on some models.

    I am looking at ripsaws for next set....I trust that all three sets not on same UTV or you already put a ton of mileage on the X2 this year lol. What kind of mileage you getting? or did you trade in or sell before they were done?

    I had a set on my Rhino, sold it shorty after. I have 4,500 on my Wildcat wearing very well. The last set are on my X2. Not much road use. Also put the balance beads in and they seem to improve the ride. I feel the traction in mud approaches that of a Mudlite without the roughness. The braking seemed to improved! ??. They are ok on rocks as long your not rock climbing on wet rocks. Overall handling is great. The last two years I been building a camp, not much riding.

    Did you have to change your clutch weights? How did the tire size effect the ride/acceleration?

    No changes to the clutching. I have not noticed a reason to change clutching yet.. Long ride tomorrow will tell me for sure!

    Observations on the first long run with new Ripsaws. We were at 8000 ft plus, on steep uphill rocky sections, the Wolvy needs to be in low gear. I upped the air pressure to 10 PSI before the run. 70 miles, rocky, sandy woops and the tires were great. I think I will leave them at 10 PSI, at 30 mph hitting sharp rocks are an easy way to get pinch flats. Thankfully none happened!

    I bought the extended warranty and the dealer stated anything larger than a 27 on a 14 rim MAY affect the warranty overall.

    I have the stock tires and wheels so if I have warranty work, I will put the stockers back on.
