Street tires for asphalt??

My wife and I ride quite a bit on secondary roads which don't have much traffic and I was wondering if a street tire is available for the Teryx. One reason we love the Teryx is the availability of the (get up and go) the machine offers. The instant response makes for some good gravel and asphault riding. I just think a street tire would get better milage plus a smoother ride, not to mention less noise. Some may say I might have been better off with another machine, but it's much more fun in the Teryx. Me being 6ft. 5 inches tall , this machine gives me the knee room and the comfort of bucket seats. I feel like even with a street tire on the machine you could still put it in 4 wheel drive and get in and out of most situations. Sorry if I overlooked any previous Threads on this subject.


Thanks!!

Dennis

There are a few good street/off-road tires in 14" sizes, I know BFG makes a Radial TA and I'm sure there are others out there. As John mentioned just need the 14" wheels to go with them.

OK, I Guess the BFG all terrain TA in the 14" has been discontinued - I did google around and found these on the web. I'm sure you can find others as well with a bit of looking around

Yes the Toyo's appear to be a popular choice for DOT tires.
