    To kick off day 2 of the 2017 Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks, we're serving up up a delicious breakfast for all the participants, because who wants to wheel on an empty stomach?! Thank you Rugged Radios and Camp Chef for co-sponsoring this with us!

    We hope everyone has a great day of wheeling and don't forget to stop by the Spanish Trail Arena around 7:00 PM tonight for our Ice Cream Social!

    Thank you for following along guys, we wish you were here too!

    On top of the beautiful scenery, the weather has been tough to beat, although rain is in the forecast today.

    So this happened during our afternoon ride today to LaSalle Mountains. Unfortunately the snow got too deep to make it safely to our destination, so we turned around. It was a good thing as we had to pull one machine out of a snow bank. Not exactly what we expected but we had a blast!

    A hot shower has never felt so good!

    We ended day 2 of The Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks with our Ice Cream Social and Raffle night!!!

    With freezers filled full of ice cream to help set the mood, it was time to give away thousands of dollars worth of prizes!!! The air was filled with excitement in anticipation for the raffle! There were tons of free shirts, hats, and other awesome goodies thrown out into the packed crowd.

    We raffled off several sets of UTV tires and wheels, truck/passenger tires, trailer tires, along with Pelican coolers and cups, and Smitty built products to boot. About half way through our raffle Greg and Steve from Rugged Radios jumped up onto the stage and gave away some of their outstanding Rugged Radios which included a full package and intercom.

    By the end of the night there was over $12,000 worth of goods handed out. I would say almost everyone in the crowd went away with something. It was a fitting ending to another fun filled day at the Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks!

    Today is Vendor Day so if you're in attendance be sure to stop by the Discount Tire booth and check out some of the hottest UTV tires and wheels available for your side by side!

    In Discount Tire fashion, we got up early before the start of vendor day and headed out to Moab Rim to have some fun! Moab Rim is a bit intimidating the first time you do it but is such a blast!

    We had a full range of tires to test on the trail from the Tensor Desert Series to the Gladiator ATR. Each and every one of them did a great job! No flats and no issues making it up any of the obstacles. The new Rage One One and Rage Three Five Two also held tough and the bolt on scratch guards kept our wheels guarded from potential trail hazards.

    Stay tuned for more wheeling pics! Tomorrow we're sponsoring runs on Poison Spider and Fins-N-Things!

    We had a blast... We will be posting up reviews on our tires and wheels soon. All of the tires we had on different side by sides did a good Job. We did not have any flats for the entire week on any tires and we rode them hard.

    You may have noticed that we didn't update this thread for the last couple of days at the Rally. We had some issues late Friday that threw us off our coverage game! Read on for more details. I'll preference day 4 (and technically the start of 5) by saying It was a strange feeling rolling through town at 1:30 AM in our side by sides...

    Friday was a beautiful sunny day at the Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks. We've been looking forward to getting out on our sponsored trail rides to meet up with some of our friends we have made over the years and make some new friends on Fins-N-Things trail. We did this trail earlier in the week as a warm up but this time we will be handing out goodie bags to all the other riders on the trail.

    We headed out the back side of the arena past Hells Revenge to a parking lot for our drivers meeting before hitting the trail. We looked forward to putting all of our tires to the test on the steep obstacle's on this trail. All of our tires found plenty of grip on the slick rock including the http://www.discounttiredirect.com/direct/tires/sti_tires/product/byName.do?tmn=Outback+XLT&typ=ATV]STI Outback XLT[/url] The Outback XTL is more suited for mud or the snow we found earlier in the week but they found good grip none the less.

    One of our riders experiences a broken rear radius rod so some of our group stayed to help as the rest of the group headed on through the rocky section of the trail.

    At our beautiful lunch spot we gave all the riders a Discount Tire grab bag.

    One of the Rugged Radios race car drivers happened to come along with us. He had a couple of Rugged Radios to give away to a couple of the lucky riders. We wanted to help pick winners but our dilemma was we didn't have any raffle tickets to draw out of a hat so we improvised and played a game of rock paper scissors until there were 2 winners. Needless to say the winners were very excited about winning.

    After lunch the group headed out to finish the slick rock section of the Fins-N-Things trail. This trail is very similar to Hell's Revenge on this section. With the sunny weather and beautiful scenery everyone had a great time on the trail!

    We got back to the arena early in the afternoon and 3 of us decided to run out to Posion Spider to get some video and photos of our tires in action. We were having a blast doing the hard obstacles one after the other when I received a radio call from one of our guys saying he broke. When we got back to him they had figured out his transmission was broken. The solution at this point was to take out all the axles and put the axle stubs back in to hold the wheels on and tow him out. We were able to get all the axles out but one with the tools we had so we called our crew for backup. They were at the Grand Raffle and said they would come as soon as it was over.

    I received a message they were on their way after dark. Two of us took off in my Wildcat to meet them at the trail head 4 miles away in the dark. That was a different experience for me. On the way back in it was interesting doing the climbs under the stars. Shortly after arriving they removed the last axle and we were off towing the side by side 4 miles in very rugged terrain. I was amazed the belt held up on the 4 seat RZR all the way back to the trail head. Good thing he put a new belt on earlier that morning.

    This was a long day and a short wake up call the next morning but by working together we made it home safe and sound. There is no doubt we will all remember this trail ride forever. Be sure to stay together and never leave anyone behind.

    Back to the pictures!
