What are folks doing to get your family out on the ice since you cannot ride double on ATV’s anymore? Can you have passengers in a sled or trailer?
New Wi ATV Law
In response to original post. I rode two up on my 4 wheeler all winter ice fishing only. I did get checked on Lake Geneva in February but while in the shack, not riding. I asked about the law and he said no I could not ride with a passenger. You can however pull someone behind in a sled, on a trailer, on the shack etc. I asked if you had to have a solid tow bar or could use a rope, and he said there was no restriction on that.
I do believe Walmart Tire Centers will also mount ATV tires for like $5-10 each. I would not recommend trying to mount them without a machine...it will take forever and your chances of tearing a bead are a lot higher. Not saying it can't be done manually, but it falls into the category of 'My time is worth something to me..."
Three weeks ago I ordered a set of 4 new tires for my 2001 Honda Rancher off Amazon. They are Wanda A/T Master P341's. They replaced the stock Carlisle AT489's that had dry rotted and cracked. I finally got tired of putting air in my tires every time I wanted to use my ATV. The price was $292 plus tax shipped to my door (I think the total after tax was like $308). A buddy of mine owns a small engine shop and mounted them for me. They are 6 ply-rated tires similar to Kenda Bearclaw K299'S, but for a lot less money! I'm happy with them. The 800+ reviews on Amazon were nearly all 5 stars. The tires shipped from Mississippi and I had them here in WI in 2 days, with free shipping. Crazy. They look great and I'm sure will work fine for hauling deer and ice fishing!
EDITED. I meant to put this on the ATV. Tires thread. Well it's here
I'm looking at these tires for my Kodak 450.
But I'm a bit leery of the on line purchase, Is this price to good to be true. I've read the reviews mostly good.
What do you LL.ers think about it. Would you do it, or have you. I just don't want to get burned.
