quad isd 06 LTR... no major mods yet... the airbox lid and cherry bomb and a set of nerfs... like i said nothing major yet... suspension work is coming soon..and a stabilizer... BTW i weigh 160
back tires are worn out... fronts are getting there... back wheels are practically destroyed and dented very bad from rocks..

i live in pa... there are some rocks here on the MX tracks with lazy owners who dont give a hoot about quads...

i have no clue what to even look for when choosing wheels... no idea what the offsets and sizes should be...whats the lightest or anything... ive done some searching here and found the front offset 4in1out to sound like the best for handling... bike is being built strickly for MX track...theres no sand here and im only in the woods occasionally... im a c class rider though...not going to be doing any 110 ft jumps with alot of impact..id like to have a very nimble accurate steering... rear wheels im looking for something strong but light and possibly beadlock..??... the rocks have ruined my outer lips...
any suggestion on tires???

any ways...any help would be appreciated on wheel and tire choice for dirt... on somewhat of a budget...cant spend a ton...but want something that works ...oh and Black wheels prefferably

thanks alot

Just bought some 9" Black ITP Baja's with ITP OMFG HD'S, Yeah that's what I said as I walked in the door and saw them mounted on my new rims"Oh my f...... god). I actually laughed after that and said dude, there is no way I can run those things, I mean shit I could put those rims and tires on a Honda Civic and make it look like a monster truck. I've read in the forums that they were heavy and all but damn, I wanted a long lasting tire and just figured I would be safe with those, wrong. I mean if you only ride gnarly trails the HD would be one badass piece of rubber and looks wicked too, but for general riding or mx tracks, uh no! I could just see hitting the first jump at the mx track with those on, be like jumping with an olympic size barbell fully stacked with 45's in the back for axle and wheels.
Anyways I told the guy I would buy them since I ordered them, but that I would have to sell them on craigs list, he said he'd put me in a set of mxr4's he had at the shop for $260.00 otd so I jumped all over it.
