The Aftershock XD proved tough at this year's King of the Hammers so we jumped at the opportunity when Arisun reached out to provide us with a set to test at this year's Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks. At first glace, the Aftershock XD features a tread pattern similar to leading Light Truck (LT) mud terrain tires. With large tread blocks, siped knobs, and high void ratio, the Aftershock XD is poised to tackle the toughest terrain. To accurately gauge a tires toughness though, you need to know what's going on inside. The 8-ply rated radial Arisun Aftershock XD utilizes an exclusive anti-puncture technology called K3D Armor. K3D Armor is a lightweight aramid reinforced composite material placed between two layers of nylon that wraps around the shoulder/ sidewall for added durability and puncture resistance. After a week of testing on trails ranging from Wipe out Hill and Cliff Hanger, to Poison Spider and Moab Rim, the Arisun Aftershock XD held up to the punishment of the rugged Moab rocks and not once left us with a flat. If you're after a durable 8-ply rated tire for your side by side that can handle the harshest of terrain, the Aftershock XD by Arisun may be the right tire model for you.
