AMS RADIAL PRO TIRE & VISION 550 WHEELS
especially since ours came already
mounted and ready to ride. Seriously,
all kidding aside, mounting a tire on a
conventional wheel is super simple and
quick. As for mounting the assembled
tire/wheel onto your UTV, that is simple
as well, but you are going to need
special lug nuts. The Vision wheel
doesn’t leave room for your 19mm-head
stock lug nuts on the Polaris RZR. The
Vision lug nuts feature a 17mm head,
and you will still need to use caution
starting them a few threads by hand as
it is still a tight fit. Once you have them
started, a thin wall socket is best, but a
standard one will still work in a pinch.
WHAT DO THEY FIT?
The Radial Pro tire is available all
the way from a little 23x10R14 to the
big-boy 30x10R14. This range will fit
anything from the smallest utility ATV to
the largest side-by-side. The 30x10R14
that we tested is the perfect size for a
Polaris RZR XP 1000, Can-Am Maverick
or even an Arctic Cat Wildcat. Five-Fifty
wheels are available in 12-, 14- and
15-inch sizes and will fit just about any
IRS 4x4 ATV or UTV.
WHO ARE THESE FOR?
As tested, this tire/wheel combo will
make a great all-around tire for anyone
with a RZR, Maverick or Wildcat. They
will excel in the desert-type terrain or
hardpack, but work just about anywhere.
They are also a great choice for anyone
needing a DOT tire for street use, should
their state or riding area allow it.
PRICE: $169 each tire &
$110 each wheel
This combination of tire and wheel
is incredibly light, especially for an
aggressive off-road terrain tire in
a 30-inch size. Our 30x10R14 tire
mounted on a 14x7 wheel weighed
in at just under 49 pounds, which is
what some of the heavier tires weigh
by themselves. You can literally feel
how light they are when driving, and
the overall handling is predictable and
precise. We weren’t able to puncture
one during testing, which is pretty
impressive with how lightweight they
were. High-speed stability is above
average; they don’t track funny or float,
and braking is precise and predictable.
The combo is priced for even the
most budget-conscious, but handled
the desert terrain as well as many of the
higher-end tire and wheel combinations
we’ve tried. With significant mileage,
they still seem to be holding up well,
but one thing worth mentioning is that
the directional tire won’t be able to be
flipped around for any extra effective
edge as the tire wears down. All in all,
this is a great tire; we’re very impressed
and wouldn’t be at all surprised if we
give these a shot in a desert or WORCS
race in the near future.;❏
WHAT IT IS:
AMS’ 30-inch Radial Pro tire is a
heavy-duty, off-road-ready tire at a very
reasonable price. Vision 550 wheels are
a high-quality aluminum ATV and UTV
wheel built to handle the loads of larger
ATVs and UTVs.
As the name states, the Radial Pro
is built with radial construction for the
smoothest possible ride characteristics,
handling and downright durability. The
Radial Pro is eight-ply rated for the
puncture resistance you need in a heavy,
high-performance vehicle like a 1000cc
UTV. The Radial Pro features a built-in
rim guard to keep those wheels looking
fresh. The Radial Pro is also DOT rated
for those states where you can ride
UTVs and ATVs on the road.
The Vision 550 is a great-looking,
“beadlock-look” wheel that is lightweight
yet carries load ratings for the heaviest of
today’s big-bore UTVs.
The Radial Pro tire is made with a
long-lasting rubber compound that
provides great grip in the rocks yet
wears slowly in the slip face and even
on asphalt. The Vision 550 wheel is
comprised of high-strength aluminum
and then powdercoated to a stylish
matte-black finish. They also get a clean-
looking, black-plastic center cap.
Mounting a tire onto a conventional
wheel versus a beadlock is a breeze,
The Vision 550 wheel and AMS Radial Pro tire offer superior strength with minimal weight.
Vision’s 550 wheel has the beadlock look without
the price or added weight.
