Tires

My 12 has original tires with good thread left. Only 1k on machine. The problem is theres some dry rotting from sitting. One blew on me last night, no sign of a big hole. Would it be ok if i got tubes to put in? If so any cheaper places to get them or just suck it up and go buy new. Do mostly trails with mud and hard packed. Maybe a half mile road per trip.

I don't think you will get much time out of the tube route low pressure tires will scrub the tube to the point of leaking in short order along with the dry rot cracks pinching.
Imho bite the bullet less headaches in the future!

If the tires are dry rotted tubes will not stop the from blowing . The tire will still split and tube will rupture.

I bought my 14 apparently with four plugged tires that went flat the next day.

Bought a set of brand new take off rzr wheels (still had stickers) with 29" bighorns for 500$ off offerup, and sold the wheels for 500$ on ebay. I did spend around 45$ to get them swapped; didn't want to hurt the rzr wheels with a diy tire removal.

I end up getting a set of black stock wheels and tires from a 14 xt for 200$! Trrad is almost new. Finally scored a great deal! Which should i carry for a spare front or back?

Front wheel. It can be used in either position, but the rear wheel will only work on the rear.
