19x7x8 Tire Review

For riding on pavement, around grassy property, and occasional off-roading, an all-terrain or 'sport' ATV tire is recommended. But if you'll be riding on muddy trails or soft dirt, you'll need something more aggressive. This article reviews 19/7.00-8" tires commonly found on mini bikes, ATV's, quads, and go karts.

Off-Road vs Mud Tires

For woods and (hard-packed) trail riding, off-road tires are a good choice. They are suited for non-paved surfaces, such as dirt and gravel paths. For riding on sand or snow, a mud tire is recommended.

Mud tires are slightly more aggressive than all-terrain tires. They're best for soft trails and mud, and feature longer lugs, with 1" to 2" of tread depth.

Off-Road Tire Choices

In the less-expensive brands of off-road tires, the Wanda Sport features four-ply nylon construction which helps resist punctures and abrasions. It carries a load/speed index of 28J and is designed to hold 220 pounds of weight per tire.

Installation Notes

All 19x7x8 tires are designed to fit on 8" diameter rims, which have a rim width of 5.5 inches. Generally, ATV tires are tubeless, although a tube can be installed if a slow leak cannot be found or repaired.

Although six-ply tires are stiffer than four ply tires, they can still be mounted by hand.

CAUTION: Cheap mini tire changers are very light duty! The HF tool I bought bent with the first use.
