Wolverine X2 / X4 and YXZ1000R / SS Tire and Wheel Options by EFX and MSA
For YXZ1000R and Wolverine SxS owners seeking to optimize traction and enhance ground clearance in specialized environments, Yamaha developed four new 28 x 10-inch tire options in collaboration with EFX. With six-ply-rated bias constructions, the new MotoBoss tire features deep, aggressive lugs delivering excellent performance in mud, and the new MotoMTC has a unique 1.25-inch deep lug for soft terrain. The MotoBoss tire’s 2-inch V-pattern lug design extends down the sidewall for maximum traction in deep mud.
Rounding out the 28-inch tire lineup with durable eight-ply-rated radial constructions, the MotoClaw features aggressive 1-inch lugs for intermediate terrain, with the MotoHammer providing exceptional performance in hardpack conditions and terrain. All four 28-inch EFX tires fit 14-inch rims for an increased sidewall feel and are offered in a “square” setup for front and rear interchangeability. Paired with the aforementioned EFX tires, Yamaha now offers a variety of 14 x 7-inch wheels, providing both function and fashion while on the trail.
Available MSA wheels include black and machined aluminum M25 Rockers and KMC XD Series Machete wheels. The Machete wheels additionally have a true beadlock option. All tire / wheel kits include center caps and lug nuts, which can also be customized with different colored interchangeable rings, caps and stars available on ShopYamaha.com.
Expanding tire and terrain specifications even further for the pure sport YXZ1000R / Sport Shift (SS), Yamaha also provides SandSlinger and MotoVator EFX tire options. For superior float, balanced grip and ultimate dune performance, the SandSlinger comes in 28- and 29-inch sizes, with or without KMC Addict 2 beadlock and non-beadlock wheels, in a ribbed front and molded-paddle rear.
Utilizing light truck engineering for a smooth, quiet ride with maximum durability, the MotoVator is a steel-belted, true radial tire with superior puncture resistance, featuring a large contact patch with elongated shoulder tread to enhance high- and low-speed cornering with reduced rolling resistance on hard terrain.
Available with or without KMC beadlock and non-beadlock wheels, the MotoVator is available in a 30 x 9.5 14-inch size, with the GYTR Torque Assist Gear kit being required for use in model year 2016-2018 YXZs.
