Anybody any thoughts on this.
I have a cforce 550, used mainly on road.
Leaning towards road tyres but the look really thin as opposed to off road tyres. Question is are the road tyres a harder compound, concerned about tyre wear. (Road tyres are a bit cheaper).
Thanks for any help.

Look for a crossover tyre (good on both surfaces), tyre wear is low, and they are very driveable.
Best choice: Maxxis Ceros
(A bit) cheaper variants of the Ceros were made by Duro and SunF > Duro Frontier and SunF A043. Both are not as good as the Ceros but for a lot of people they’ll do.
will check out the sunf A043, there a brand I can get here, thanks
I have 2900 miles on the set in the center pic.about half tread now and will buy them again
Personally, if I were to put road tires on my ZForce (can’t legally drive them on the road here, so I won’t be doing so, but if I could…) I’d be putting winter car tires on, even for the summer. Reasoning? Because winter car tires are going to still have a fairly soft compound with open tread blocks to retain some semblance of off-road traction, and while they would wear faster than summer tires you’re still going to get 40-50,000 km out of them, which is probably longer than the machine will last (40-50k would be extremely high km for any ATV, from any brand). I would go with an “old school” tread design, such as the Hercules Avalanche Extreme rather than a newer directional style.
In fact eventually I plan on getting a set of 15″ wheels and putting some studded Avalanche snow tires on, not for road use but for winter use – our trails become extremely icy in winter, and with the ground frozen there is no need for a mud tire
wow good thoughts, for a road tyre that makes really good sense, thanks, will definitely Investigate.
Winter tyres for cars normally start of from 14”, the CForce 500 has 12” rims so you’d end up buying rims too
Middle ones are great had them on my Honda
if you are going road tires try getting a small all terrain road tire for cars/trucks? might be worth a shot
sounds like a good option
