I picked up a new set of Far East tires from National Ropo Depot last week and mounted them on my Prowler. They told me that they were made by ITP for sales overseas. I guess I can belive that since they look alot like an XTR but they aren't radial. They are a pretty hard tire with very stiff siewalls. I'm sure I could run them with no air even on the Prowler. They did make the ride stiffer but it steers like it has power steering now. It's way easier than with the stock Goodyear's. Traction is no comparison to the stockers since they have a 1 1/16" lug on them. For the price I paid for them I think they will be a good tire.

Those look great on your Prowler and no doubt perform MUCH better than the stock goodyears. I ran a set of the ITP XTRs for a short time. The tread design worked very well. It rode smooth, steered light, and cleaned out well. Everything you could ask for. My dislike was the soft sidewalls. I knocked one off the rim on the first ride and then went back to my dirt devils(never punctured or knocked one of them off in over 5000 miles) because of it. SO...the stiff sidewalls on yours may be an advantage. Keep us posted!!

They just say Far East on the sidewall. They do seem to work very well and I think they should wear good since they are pretty hard.
