Most riders are also do-it-yourselfers. We would rather take on a job ourselves, whether it’s rebuilding an engine or building a backyard shed, than turn it over to somebody else. One task that can be completely deceiving, though, is changing tires. As anyone who has ever attempted to change ATV or Side x Side tires knows, there is hardly a job that appears simpler, yet has the ability to be so completely frustrating.

We wondered how they would top that for 2015, but as it turns out, they were just getting warmed up!

There are millions of older model ATVs and early Side x Sides still on the trail and ready for another decade of action.  Like an older truck, though, after long and faithful service even the best of machines will require a little massaging, and some parts are known to be prone to failure.
