When it comes to tires for the Polaris RS1, everyone has their own opinion about which brand performs best. And because these options are so various, it’s difficult to pin down which tires are actually optimal for which riding domains. Tire size, offset, sidewall thickness, and inflation pressure are four of the many factors that contribute to a tire kit's performance. No matter how you use your machine, though, be it for racing, rock crawling, mudding, or hill climbing, at Everything Polaris RZR, we’ve got the right Polaris RS1 tires to improve your rides. Gladiator tires, for instance, are great for desert riding, and so are 30” GBC Terra Masters, CST Lobo tires, Cheyenne RX tires, and Maxxis’ Liberty tires. The latter also rides well in rocks and on hard pack, but they’re really soft and aren't the best bet for longevity. When you buy terrain-specific Polaris RS1 tires like paddle tires, mud tires, or street tires, they'll perform exceptionally well on the conditions for which they're designed. Take them on a different type of ground, however, and you'll find their performance to be lackluster. For this reason, general-use, all-terrain tires for the Polaris RS1 are popular. Although they aren't perfect for any type of terrain in particular, they work reasonably well in most situations. But whatever it is that you're after vis a-vis Polaris RS1 tires, wheels, and rims, you're sure to find it at Everything Polaris RZR!
Whether you're riding the WVA trails, the mountainous hills of Montana, or the upper peninsula area of Michigan, the right Polaris RS1 tires will make all the difference. In terms of traction, fat and knobby tires will provide optimal grip. However these types of tires are loud, cumbersome, and vibrate profusely on pavement and fast-pace trails. So for those that want an all-purpose Polaris RS1 tire kit, a delicate balance must be struck. And with a wide range of Polaris RS1 tires that ride smooth, handle great, and wear well, Everything Polaris RZR is the place to go. So don't wait and fulfill al your off-road tire needs today!
For dirt road riding, Motohammer tires come highly recommended. We know lots of guys who run them for that type of terrain with nothing but good things to say. Others to look at for general riding are Carnivores and Pro Armor Crawlers. Regarding gravel dirt roads, you will want a tighter-packed tread than you will with loose dirt or mud. TerraMasters or Mongrels (28x10x14) work well for dirt roads, both of which are DOT approved and steel belts. Sandslingers are a good tire brand for running dunes, and for all the folkes riding the little Sahara in Oklahoma, we’d suggest using STI Sand Wedges in the rear and Pro Armor in the front. STU’s Blaster 1 Cut or their 28” #2 paddle tires are good for sand riding as well, and so too are Skats. You don’t necessarily want stiff sidewalls for sand riding, so anything around 4 ply is where you want to be.
If you use your RS1 for racing, going as small as 27” with your tires makes for less rotating mass, helping your RS1 to stop better and accelerate quicker. Further, flat tires work better for short course racing than tires with a more rounded shape, which is why many racers shave their tires down from 27” to 25.5”. Racers know that tracks tend to get hard packed in the race line with what is known as “the cushion”, which is the loose dirt thrown to the outside of the race line. Shaving the center of the tire down makes the center better on the hard pack, but still leaves lugs on the outside edge to grip the cushion. Regardless of the tire you go with for you RS1, you can easily change its performance by inflating / deflating it. Many riders change their tire pressure based on the trail conditions. If you encounter a lot of square-edge rocks, you’ll want to run more tire pressure so you don’t get a pinch flat -- but you’ll do this at the detriment of plushness. More PSI is also suggested for riding roads, as there’s less rolling resistance and more fun to be had drifting. In the, we’d suggest running your tires at 12.5-18 PSI, which is lower than what most people do but good for stiffer tires Roctanes. So if you’re riding forest roads, gravel pits, rally style TT tracks, or wooded trails, we’ve got the best Polaris RS1 tires to keep your machine planted on mud, snow, sand, or hard pack!
