The difficulty in sourcing good quality all-terrain tire at a fair price has been a growing concern for Mudd-Ox and the wider Amphibious ATV user community over recent years, a factor that has been exploited by some suppliers. In response to this Mudd-Ox has designed and commissioned a new family of tire, named Vendetta and drawing inspiration from the very best in class but with an eye for innovation that is the very essence of Mudd-Ox.
Whilst optimized for the new generation of Mudd-Ox, these tires will also breathe new life into a wide range of ATV types. The initial batch of tire were sized at 26 x 14 x 12″, other sizes will become available shortly – see below. The tires are of exceptional quality, fabricated by Hoosier using their considerable expertise in designing specialist, high performance Formula 1, dragster and dirt racing tires. Mudd-Ox Vendetta Tires by Hoosier Racing Tire Company – are now available direct from Mudd-Ox Inc.
This is a tough, high performance tire, designed to offer a squared cross section with a flat footprint, optimising ground contact area to maximise tractive effect and minimise ground pressure. The flat contact profile assures optimal ground contact, a high level of stability and positive engagement and alignment when used with tracks. Mudd-Ox Vendetta Tire.
The sophisticated tread profile assures positive grip across the entire profile, with side lugs that are sculpted to improve grip and mud shedding and a centre profile that improves amphibious performance.
The ride quality offered by these tire is superb and they allow the exceptional agility, precision and performance of our hydrostatically driven Mudd-Ox to be fully exploited. Skid steering response is light, precise and predictable. They also deliver a shot in the arm to machines with less sophisticated and capable mechanical transmissions. Performance in water is excellent; Mudd-Ox’s ability to do a neutral turn (rotate about its own centre) is impressive enough on land, and un-matched by the competition; these tires allow it to achieve similar levels of maneuverability in water.
