Tie downs.

I am tired of have my sxs move around in my tow hauler. I ratchet strap all four corners - and it still walks around. I can't use wheel bonnets because of the tie down points in my trailer. What is wrong with using a strap through the mag wheel and then to the ratchet straps. I think my 570 moves around because the suspension has give in it even with the straps tightened down. Using the wheels will by pass the springs - if it is this simple why doesn't everyone do it?

There is nothing wrong woth running a strap through your wheels and then tying it down that way. The best way there is, other than bonnets.
I only tie down by the wheels, eithe straps through the wheel, tire bonnets, or whatever. trying to tie down the frame it will move around.
Just secure the wheels and let the rest of the machine do its thing, it wont go anywhere.
Why doesn’t everyone do it????? IDK, not my problem. We had a guy we frequently ride with almost unload his machine in the middle of a highway because he didn’t have it tied down properly.

PS. I put down e-track in my toy hauler so I can use the bonnets in it, also on my flatdeck trailer.

Re: Tie downs.

As an addendum to my previous post; when I DO use straps through the wheels, I run the straps from the front wheels in such a way that they are pulling rearward; and run the straps on the rears so they are pulling forward, That way they are working against each other to keep things secure. Too bad I donít have a picture to show you.
Good luck

Re: Tie downs.

Mine has never moved. I put 2 straps in back and 2 in front and cinch down to just start compressing shocks
I also put in neutral and use a parking brake

Re: Tie downs.

E-track here too, with straps dedicated to the task. Great way to go. Next time I'll buy mesh nets. Meanwhile I still run a doubled up 3" strap across the back in case of panic braking, and the run another from both A-Arms to a front mount point. So 6 straps total, and everything rated at least twice the working rating I need.

So long the mag wheels don't have a rough edge all should be well. That said, depending on how it all works out, you may not have a lot of "down" on the tires. Personally I want to mildly compress the tire as I strap in. I not only want it to not move, but I want it to stay put in even the worst accident I can imagine. I think roll-over at that point, and now I'm just wanting to make sure it doesn't become a missile.

Less of a concern in an enclosed of course.

Re: Tie downs.

I am going to try to tie down my tires, Iíve got many feet of e-track on my deck over trailer. Seems sturdy. Compress the tires a bit, and go.
Iím going to use e track rings and 2Ē ratchet straps. Should work great, hold the tires stationary and let the suspension do its thing.
Iíll let you know how it works.

2018 RZR 1000 S, mostly stock, home made aluminum roof, with rack for spare tire. Dual battery, stock Polaris and Napa AGM with a battery isolator. Warn Axon 3.5S winch. Almost 3k miles, working on installing lights, itís life before me was a street legal machine in Arizona, lotsa miles , never saw mud.
No tunes.

Re: Tie downs.

Yep, that's what I do. I was still worried about a emergency breaking action and what kind of force might be exerted on the e-track so as above I used a doubled up 3" through my rear bumper and back to the rear of the trailer.

Good luck!

Re: Tie downs.

I ran straps through the wheels for a while but I found if I didn't have them positioned just right the wheels would shift a little and loose tension on the strap, using a parking brake did minimize that issue.

This is what I have been using and it works well for me. Only needs 1 tie down point per wheel and the strap sinches down on the tire very well, never had any movement and the RZR suspension still does it's thing

This is the same style that I use. No e-track required, just four simple tie down points at the corners. Machine never moves around and no mid-trip re-tightening required.

X3 on shock straps. Mine hasn't moved an inch in my toyhauler since I got them. Expensive but cheaper than it getting loose.
