I use the biggest Ty Davis tire irons he makes . I use alot of soap , and use baby powder on the tubes. If you take your time the Maxxis It is no big deal . I find my kids 65's tires are more a pain in the rear. I have to be be in the right mood to change a tire . If not I spend the 20 bucks.

I'm using the Maxis IT's on my 450 and it wears great, pretty good traction. I've never weighed them, how much heavier are they than a Dunlop or Bridgestone? I never really thought about it, is it/should it be a concern?

I just put a Maxxis IT 120/90-19 on last night. I used 2 10" tire irons and a little WD40. Took about an hour start to finish, I didn't find the Maxxis IT very difficult at all :ride:

my Maxxis is a 100/90-19 and I think that makes a huge difference :banana:
