Arrow BKT wing tire dilemma

hi guys i have ran into a little dilemma,
i currently run 2 24-10 11's BKT wing W207's on my 98 foreman. i absolutely love them. although just last week i had the left rear break off of the bead. and the right one has now gone flat. i purchased them from a friend and they are weatherchecked. but not to the point where i am too concerned. they ran great for 4 months until last week.
i have two options, and this is where i could use some advice. BKT wing W207 tires were discontinued and they are extremely hard to find in the size i need. i found some online for $80 a piece. i am stuck between buying all 4, or saving $160 and buying just the fronts.
what do you guys think i should do? should i just go with new tires all around or save some $$$ and just purchase 2. currently the wing tires i own now still have roughly 75% tread left. any advice would be appreciated.

I would start with something new.
Is your quad a 4X4?
I am sure there is another tire out there you will like.

Welcome to the forums.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

it is a 4x4. and i guess i could go with something new i just really like how the w207 does in the terrain i ride. but my dad just picked up a set of swamp fox tires for his foreman and he has had good luck with them. i can pick those up for 280 free shipping. i should just do that

What type of terrain do you ride? I like the ITP Mudlite. Just put an inner tube in the tire and wear them out.

i ride on mostly dirt, some mud, lots of snow. and the w207 do a great job.after thinking more on it i am going to buy 2 new fronts. it will save me $160, and i'm strapped for cash. i had bearclaws on an old fourtrax i had and they did good. i for some reason, just love the w207's

well guys i took the tires to the tire shop, had them regreased and had them clean the rims up and seat the bead. they seem good so far. i ended up buying two new wing tires on tires by web.com $172 shipped to my door. not bad in my opinion. cant wait to get them.
on a side note, if anyone is searching for a place on the web that has good deals, tiresbyweb.com is awesome. Free shipping and fair prices.
