Hey fellers, im ready to upgrade from my turf tires to atv tires but I have a few questions first. Am I able to pull a little bit different size tire on my existing rim? For example I currently have 20×10×8 turf tires and I was thinking about going to a 22x10x8 atv tire but the only ones in could find in that size are kenda scorpion. I believe I want want a little bit more agressive tread than they have. So, my 2 quuestions are 1. Are kenda scorpions good enough for basic trail and some mud running and 2. Would I be able to put say a 22x9x8 or 22x11x8 etc. On a rim that is made for a 20x10x8.

The first number you don't have to worry about, it could be 10 or 50 and it wouldn't matter. The second nuber can be a few inches off but streching tires isn't fun and can damage the bead/sidewall. The third number needs to be the same.

You can definitely put wider tires like 22x11 on your rims I put 26x12x12 on a rim that had 23x8x12 on it

I would use the knobby tires, they work good for off roading, they have some grip but not too much.  So if you were to go up a hill and get stuck they will spin before they grab and flip you over.
