Set of 28 inch cst wild thangs freshly delivered

My initial thoughts. Beefy, I got the 12 and 10 wide . Looking forward to getting them mounted up. I am doing a complete over haul on the kodiak this winter. My list of mods - of course tires , purple spring & 1.5 mm shims , uni filter air filter mod , and diy rad relocate . No snorkels , or grizzly roller weights . as I am trying to do a dual purpose mud / work atv . I have a idea in my head to do a low profile rad relocate and incorporating into the radiator frame a removable rack for work . I’ll do a full picture and wright up when I do it.
My wife’s kodiak will be getting my current 26 inch tires 1.2 mm shim and the uni filter mod and rad relocate also.

You are going about it the way I would. Try to save a dollar but get extra performance.

Sounds interesting

Yes they are , CST is the parent company of Maxxis . They have a higher load rating and seem to be a bit better in the mud because of the extra side lug.

lol totally wrong, not related in any way.
CST is one of the sub brands made by Chen Shin (spelling) rubber.
Maxxis is an independent Canadian company.

Yeah after some research, Cheng shin rubber Canada bought out maxxis a few years ago. Huh, how fast the industry changes when you don't work in it any more...

26 front each and 29 rears each, the rears are only a 1.5 lb more than the zillas. So they are pretty light.
