I have KT 857 on my 4-wheeler now and as far and the ride and traction during trail riding they are great tires. I am just curious if i should go with a more aggresive tread like the KT705. My ? is which would be the better ride and get more traction in the trails.. The 857 has a bunch of knobs on it and overall does good and the 705 has the V design in the middle is self cleaning and supposed to be good traction too and im just hoping someone here has had them. Thanks for your time.

And im pretty sure both tires are considered all-terrain but the 705 would have a better mud rating. But im worried about all round traction on different kinds of terrain.

oh and it's a 2x4 4-wheeler will be riding on a little bit of everything but mainly dirt and or creeks (so some mud). Im in the mtns of southwest VA. So if u get a chance to see the tread on the tires maybe u can see my little dilemma lol. Thanks again man im not trying to be a bother just want to get the right tires for me and looking for ppls opinions.

You should post pictures of both the tires that would help alot. I run ITP holeshots on my warrior but that's more of a sport quad tire and doesn't do anything for you in mud. Just post a picture then we can help ya more.

the 705 is actually a match to my front tires. I just know the 857 has good traction that i dont want to miss out on. Im starting to think the 705 should be just as good traction and maybe better in mud. What u think? Thanks for ur time. (

Stumbled upon this post as i was browsing for some info about ATV tires. can someone give me comparison on the Dunlop KT radial tires to Maxxis Cheng Shin series? What i just know is Dunlop only has 4-ply while Maxxis tires comes in 4- and 6-ply
