Sedone Rip Saw

Ive got Sedona Rip Saws on my T4. Looked them up online and the manufacturers spec page says “7psi”

Ive been running 10psi but its way too hard.

Anyone have these and what do you run yours at?

I do have bead locks.

Any feedback from anyone currently running these tires?

You can run them at 7psi no problems, I have Sedona rockabillies, pretty firm tire cause 8 ply, ran them at 12psi, they beat me to death, website said 8psi so I've been running them at that since, and thinking of dropping them to about 5psi

I run mine at spec psi. I like the ride and I like the Rip Saws.

Thanks guys. I appreciate the response.

I should note that there was error in my original post, and do NOT have bead locks.

I was seeing 7 psi on the manufacture website. Maybe im wrong.

I think this weekend I will drop down to 7 psi.

Im interested to hear how your 5 psi rides? Are you in a rocky terrain?

I had a set of Ripsaw's on my ATV once. Very hard tire with very deep tread. Seemed more like a truck tire than an ATV tires. I hated them on the ATV and immediately took them off, but I think they would be great on a Teryx.

I rode with P.T. once and saw his Rockabilly tires and thought they looked and performed great. I now have them on my bike too. After some rides and adjusting, I have finally settled on 7 PSI in the front and 6 PSI in the rear. Same size tire front and rear (28/10/14) and I really like the ride, comfort and traction with this setup. At 10 PSI I wasn't getting my full contact patch on the ground. The way I have it now feels about perfect.

I do have true bead locks, but you don't have to have them at that PSI. I would bet you could run those Ripsaws at 6 PSI without bead-locks and be just fine. On my ATV, I let the Ripsaws down to 2 PSI and they were still too hard.

Now that you ask and I think about I will tell you I run 8 psi. But, I have it in my head that was also spec, not 7.

Hello Sedona RipSaw folks:
I have 2000+ miles on a set on a Teryx 2 LE - Came with the machine
NOTES:

1. VERY stiff tire that wears well and is tough.
2. I run 5 psi in the mountains to improve the ride. Change to Bandit shocks to improve slow speed ride.
3. They will through gravel rocks when traveling on gravel roads more than a regular tire.
4. They are HORRIBLE in sand. Major diggers and not pushers.
5. Tore a side wall in CO and the tire is still working fine. The cut has never really leaked much. I did a glue repair and it worked.
6. I would not get them again as I want Sedona Coyotes now. I am tired of throwing rocks and mud all the time.
7. It took 4 years for the out gassing smell of the tires to reduce to normal.

Mike
