AMS Slingshot XT ATV Quad And UTV Tires In The Chap Moto 25 Inch Tire Shootout

Chaparral Motorsports

April 18, 2018

Not everyone is looking for the same thing when it comes to shopping for ATV or UTV tires. Some people may want the best overall  tires that can do it all, while others may want a tire that performs a certain way or is really good at specific tasks. For example one person may want a tire that can charge through extreme mud while someone else may need tires that can bite hard and stop fast in the middle of a downhill run. At Chaparral Motorsports we have hundreds of SXS and ATV tires from different manufacturers as well in a variety of models and sizes. The reason why we have so many tires is to meet the needs and demands of all our customers.

To help make shopping for ATV or side-by-side tires easier for our customers we put together a 25" ATV/UTV Tires Shootout pitting 21 of our most popular tires against each other. We came up with five different challenges to demonstrate how each tire performs in certain terrain and performing specific tasks, that way if you are in the market for a very precise tire you can make an informed decision.

While we've covered The Best Tires for Specific Tasks, Top 8 Best Overall Performing Tires, as well as given an explainer on the 5 different challenges, in this article we are going to show you how one specific tire did in each test.

Obviously they all can't be winners but of the 21 tires and five different challenges, each tire did have its moment of shine. And this can be really important when tire shopping, because as stated not everyone wants or needs the best overall tire, some people just want the tire that's best for them.

So without further ado, here is the breakdown on the:

AMS Slingshot XT




The overall winner the XT placed in the top five in nearly every test except for the downhill braking where it placed 13th. This is a great all around tire for someone that does it all and needs a tire to keep up.
