street tires for rhino

I have a Rhino 450 and want to run it around the neighborhood on the street. Do not want to ruin my mud tires. Does anyone sell street tires and wheels to fit? I can't seem to find any online. Thanks for all info, SNM

Mwink You could run adapters or 14 inch wheels

I run adapters and a set of 205-70r14s. They are about 25 inches tall. If I had it to do over I'd go a little taller to add a little top speed for street use.

Thanks for info, but I am a total rookie. Where do you get the adapters and how does that work? Are they regular car wheels? What bolt pattern? Hate to sound dumb, but have never dealt with this before.

AZ street tires for Rhino

You can get adapters from e-bay, but you might try just getting a set of r wheels that share the Rhino's lug pattern. I am not sure, but I think both the Rhino and the Mazda RX-7 came with a 4x110 lug pattern.

I have seen used 4x100 honda wheels (sometimes with tires) for sale pretty often. If you are going to buy adapters that might be the way to go.

You could run a tire like the General Grabber AT2 in 27x8.50R-14 on aftermarket 4-3 offset Rhino wheels. They are a DOT tire and you can use it off-road as well.

Hey guys, thanks for all the info. Am presently on the lookout for some street tires and wheels. The early Mazda rx7 did indeed have 4 X 110 bolt pattern. Will let you know when I find something and how it works out. Thanks, SNM

I had the same plan, searched around for "atv street kit" and found these replacement steel wheels then just tossed decent 14" tires on. They work great and even do pretty well off pavement.

Plan on getting some mud terrains when those are worn out.

I bought a set of 14" ITP wheels on ebay for about 250, they are the old type 7 wheels but they were shipped to my door for 250 and were the nice chrome ones, brand new.

then i got some used 14" car tires on craigslist for next to nothing. two of those did go flat so i bought two new ones at wal-mart for 65/each. they work great. and they dont do that bad off road, not great in mud or anything but i gained a few mph top speed because of that lack of rolling resistance that my 27" XTR's provided.

We just receives a new tire that is DOT approved that would work perfect. They are the New Vision Duo-Trax asymmetrical 6 ply rated UTV tire.

They come in 26x9R-12 and 26x11R-12. Here is the link to them:

They are so new we don't have the photos up yet. Here is a photo so you can see what they look like.

Nice looking tires! Has anyone tried them yet? I'd like to see what they look like mounted and hear from someone how they perform on and off road.

My biggest questions are 1) How well will they stand up to concrete and asphalt, and b) will they be available in a 14"?
