Scott Summers - Off-Road MC Legend

With the newest update to the TireBalls website we wanted to pay tribute to our good friend and champion Scott Summers.  Scott with the help of his father Wade were part of the beginning history of TireBalls.  A special thanks to Carrie Jo from GNCC for rekindling some old pictures and articles her and her father Dave Coombs had accumulated over the years.  Scott had totally changed the rank and file American off-road riders community and his lofty resume ensures his place in the legends of off-road.  Motorcyclist Magazine was quoted years ago "Scott was known as a real innovator on bikes - He made bikes that people wouldn't think would work win races."  Scott had a natural athletic gift to manipulate bikes 'right out of the crate' faced with some of the most aggressive terrain and win championships.  At a glance some of his accomplishments over a 2 decade riding career;  9 Overall National Off-Road Titles; 4 AMA National Hare Scramble Championships; 5 AMA Grand National Championships; 69 National Overall Victories; 15 National Class Championships; AMA Rider of the year for 1988, 1989, 1990, 1992, 1993 and 1996.

     When BC Customs/HDT partnered up it was after 8 years of Brandon Johnson's life to modify a tactical vehicle he knew worked in the extreme off road community of WERock racing that could help the Air Force satisfy it's Guardian Angel Air-Deployable Rescue Vehicle.  Some of us were not surprised that BC Customs got the award knowing their dedication to their craft and the quality of vehicle's.  We had the good fortune of traveling to Salt Lake to install the first TireBall kits on Unit #1.  SXOR's staff was attentive and quickly learned the process and by tire #2 they were doing it on their own.  Good folks and TireBalls are proud to be part of it.  Only 60 more to build!

    TireBalls in the US Forest Service

     Over the last 12 months test units were placed at selected US Forest Service locations to include Alaska, So. California and Utah.  These test units were supplied with TireBalls for use by US Forest personnel to assess usage of TireBalls in extremely remote areas with rough terrain without having to carry extra gear and supplies in the event of a flat.  These SxS and ATV's have traveled the country preserving our natural resources and keeping the staff safe from harm.  Terry Hollinger said, "I build and maintain trails for a National Forest. We use four wheel drive quads to assist us in maintaining those trails. I was asked to try out a new tire product for my quads by a company called tire balls. We average 3 to 5 flat tires a per season because of sever terrain i.e. thorns sharp rocks. So far this season using the new tires from tire balls we have yet to get a flat tire. In fact we aired down a few tires and weren’t able to even tell they were flat. I have been very impressed by the tires performance so far. In my professional option I would recommend the use of this product and would use them on my own personal A.T.V.s  Thanks Tire Balls."
