    Those are the weirdest tires I have seen... Are they called crush locks because they smash the tire in the middle? Those would be just about useless up here. But maybe if you live around a lot of swamp land.

    The crush locks are the metal part that crunches the tire, those tires are terminators. Seems the primary benefits would be to end up with a much taller tire and eliminate flotation issues so you can get a bite on the bottom.

    thats what they do...

    the tire has two rings bolted together thru the tire. you are drilling holes thru the tire, and sandwiching two plates together in order to crush the tire down to almost flat. this gives you a tire that is taller, and thinner without any air that will sink to the bottom and dig on the bottom. with no air, there is no flotation and it sinks to the bottom and digs. with the tire thinner than normal, it produces less drag and allows the bike to move faster thru the mud (typically used in mud racing)

    these bikes in these races have the crush locks. it helps them run faster under water. thinner tires have less drag and allow faster wheel speeds under water

    the skinnier the tire, the less "suction" you have as well in the mud. take for example you get stuck, the lack of air under your tire in the mud + the air above it + the wieght of your vehicle = Stuck as shit!
    I run 9.5" wide 31" tall outlaws for this very reason...... yes it does look a lil silly with skinny tires, but i cut down on wieght and drag in mud holes. saving parts that would normally break had i run the same size tire but 12" wide.

    Maybe this guy should have used crush locks, this is what I call " stuck as shit! "
