looking at the traxion Racer XC tire, im on a tight budget, and being in canada any cheaper tires like GBC would still end up costing as much as expensive tires locally, so, since traxion tires are a canadian company, they are by far cheaper.

im talking $270 CAD shipped for a set of 4 tires cheap. Compared to GBC XC master at around $460 CAD after import charges and shipping.

just curious if anyones ever run them though, guessing i wont get much feedback on here, since most of you are american. but it cant hurt to ask. 

tossed in a picture for reference. they LOOK great. and the bigger 4x4 quad tires have decent reviews. 

20/32's tread depth as well

Kinda figured no one would know anything about em haha.

So I'll be a guinea pig. Ordered them last night at 11:30 pm, they shipped out this morning at 8:30 am.

Will post up a review when I get some ride time on em! $280 shipped after taxes for all four. I'm not complaining one bit!


Oh, and they're 6ply. Which I didn't realize at first! I like that.

Never heard of them, but a quick check says they
are the only Canadian ATV/UTV tire manufacturer.

If they hookup too well for you to slide the rear, you might want to contact Fuj here and get one of his famous sway bars.  Its a great investment.

I'm definitely going to have to get used to the traction lol. My tires are so bald I was sliding the rear on asphalt lol. Bought it with bald tires, so this will be the first time riding with good tires.

I do have 1.5" spacers coming for the rear, so that will help, may have to get the sway bar as well.

you will want those spacers. they will keep the new tires from rubbing the reservoirs, especially with worn suspension bushings. on the older models like ours, you learn to sit like a street bike. harder to stand quickly, but worth it.

Yeah, that's why I got spacers. Since its wider than stock tire size.

Atvtirescanada.com was the site I used.

They may have been on sale? Not sure. I'll see if my invoice says.

Just checked, they were 10% off when I ordered.

Even still, at that price its cheaper than ordering from the states. Especially with the crap dollar right now.

I do love the tires though, no regrets is buying them.
