Thumbs up Doonz tires ROCK!!!

I just wanted to give my review or the new DWT Doonz tires.

Thanks UTV Crap!!

First off, I came from using Dunestar rears, and AMS ribbed fronts. I loved the way the AMS turned, but they were very heavy. The Dunestars.....well everyone knows they are not the best tire.

These new tires are awesome. They are light, wide, and look great.
My type of riding is high-speed dunning. I don't rate a tire by merely how they climb...the Teryx is never going to be a good climber.

These tires made my Teryx just like a mini rail. It would go around bowls that it never could in the past. The sand was as soft as I had ever seen it, but you wouldn't know it by the way the this thing ran.

I probably picked up 3-5 mph on flat ground. Not GPS proven, just based on races with Dad's and brother's Rhinos.

However, if you ask my boys the best part about these tires is that they "scoop sand". I was told by my brother that I had forgotten TALLER HAULER ETIQUETTE, after I had blasted them a few times.

The only down side I saw was a little bogging on the longest of climbs and i think a little stiffer secondary would allow my a little more wheelspin.

Who's got the best buy on the Doonz tires? What kind of muffler is on your ride?

It was made by a friend at a muffler shop. It's primary purpose was to get the heat out of the motor faster, take the tone of the exhaust down (easier to talk over, still look good, and not restrict performance.

I think it is awesome, and was only $150.00

Someday i hope to be "cool enough" to buy a real exhaust system, but in the meantime I am saving my money to buy new front seats.

I like the way it sounds as it is deeper, but not louder than stock. It seems to perform great compared to a stock muffler.

Only downfall is that it is a little big, although lighter than stock, and I take crap for it not being a "real" exhaust system.

If i was to do it over again I would try and find a Borla stainless steel muffler, as I had to paint mine with a ceramic paint to cut down on the corossion from mud puddles and washing.
