STI Tire & Wheel has now released its new tire the Black Diamond. This super-versatile new ATV/UTV tire is designed to deliver crossover performance—an ideal choice for all terrain types and all seasons—at a value price.

The Black Diamond’s innovative “V” tread pattern bridges the gap between soft mud/snow/sand and hardpack surface capabilities. Its unique over-center tread elements provide a smooth, controlled ride on hardpack, while offering excellent traction and clean-out in soft conditions. The Black Diamond’s 6-ply radial carcass was developed specifically to provide the stability needed for side-by-side UTV applications, while retaining the plush ride characteristics favored by ATV riders. An extended-wear tread compound retains biting edges longer and greatly increases tire life.


The Black Diamond is now available in two models and more than 30 sizes. The Black Diamond ATR features a ¾-inch tread lug, while the Black Diamond XTR utilizes a more aggressive 1 1/8-inch lug depth.

The ATR model’s sizes are: 22x11R-9, 25x12R-9, 22x11R-10, 22x8R-10, 23x10R-10, 23x8R-10, 24x11R-10, 25x11R-10, 23x8R-11, 24x10R-11, 24x8R-11, 24x9R-11, 25x10R-11, 25x8R-11, 23x10R-12, 23x8R-12, 24x8R-12, 25x8R-12, and 25x10R-12.

The XTR model’s sizes are 25x8R-12, 25x10R-12, 26x10R-12, 26x12R-12, 27x9R-12, 27x11R-12, 26x9R-14, 26x11R-14, 27x9R-14, 27x11R-14, 26x9R-15 and 26x11R-15 (26x9R-12 and 26x11R-12 sizes are coming soon).

STI Black Diamond tires are available at finer ATV/UTV dealers everywhere, through MTA Distributing. For more information, to place an order or to locate an STI dealer, visit www.mtadistributing.com or call: East (318) 255-0049; West (951) 272-0971.

According to ATV tire manufacturer ITP, something wicked this way comes, and it’s called Mayhem. The Mayhem is the new bad boy in ITP’s proven ATV/UTV tire line, spelling trouble for the competition. This is ITP’s most aggressive mud/trail tire ever, with striking looks and hard-hitting performance.

The Mayhem features a unique, deep-lug tread design that mocks the nastiest mudholes but still plays nice on harder trail surfaces. Trail comfort and handling are further enhanced by the Mayhem’s lightweight carcass construction. Exceptional acceleration and braking characteristics as well as balanced cornering qualities make the Mayhem a capable, confident all-around performer. With its extended wear rubber compound and durable 6-ply rating, the Mayhem can take a beating and come back for more. And with its distinctive, tribal-inspired, embossed artwork, the Mayhem stands out in a crowd not just for its abilities but for its attitude, too.
