I see you are out east. Many of the eastern riders prefer a 6-ply tire due to the sharp rocks where many midwest riders riders prefer lighter 4-ply tires.

I like a flat profile tire front and rear. The Holeshot XCTs are 6-ply. The 22x11x10s are about 1/2" shorter than stock and work well. Many 24" and 25" tires are significantly taller than stock. The only really flat profile tires for the front are 4-ply. The new Holeshot XCRs are 6-ply and flatter profile fronts than the XCTs.

This machine has 22x11x10 XCT rears with 22x7x10 XCR fronts.
