 TIRES ON THE KUBOTA RTV

As many of you already know, I own the RTV. Well have any of you had any problems with the tires. What I'm tlaking about is how they do not grip very well. I have goen to as low as 10 lbs. and they just don't flex well. At that pressure they are too low for around here with all the mesquites we have here.
Have any of you had the same problem?

I have 25x10-12 in the front and 25x11-12 in the rear. They are the all-terrain tires.

 TIRES ON THE KUBOTA RTV

Tires are tricky critters.

The tires you have are designed to run in mud and be self cleaning. They have a rounded carcass and are designed to run "in" the soil, not on top of it. So if you put them on a hard surface or soft sand they perform very badly.

You may have to match the tire design to the type of usage you will encounter most of the time.

I have my RTV set up for soft sand and hard surface/rocky roads. The tires don't do very well in snow, but I only get snow a couple of months a years and I can chain it up if it get real bad.
