Way to go,David. Looks like they added about 6" to the wheelbase to fit the tires. I'd put a set of 25 or 26" Titan Tru Power tires on it, like Troy's Max4.
But, then again, for $17,000 (I heard from a source I can't reveal) :) Think I'll put some 23" tires on the Response and call it good. Eddie, we have a couple tire options. Buy a set of Bigfoot 9" wheels, and trim a 1/4" tread off the crown of some 25/12/9 rawhide III's. Goodyear specs them at 24.1" and we have axles on 24" centers.
Or agricultural tires like Troy's. That would be 12" Max k-rims with Titan 23" tires. Only drawback is very short sidewall with 12" wheels=very little suspension.
Been looking at Kenda Dirt Dog atv tires, a chevron mud design. Found a 25/12/9, it specs at 23.1" tall, oddly. And 9" so should fit the bigfoot wheels. Have to get my hands on a wheel and tire to see.
The Avenger looks cool!
