We have a hard time questioning old-fashioned American ingenuity after watching our latest YouTube find (available after the break).

It seems somebody had the brilliant idea of building a set of ATV wheels that could take you just about anywhere. To achieve his goal of go-anywhere wheels, our fearless fabricator welded 5/8” round bars to old car wheels and attached them to a 2000 Honda FourTrax 350.

Are they fuel efficient? No. Are they quiet? No. Are they good for your ATV? No. Are they trail legal anywhere? Hell no! However, you can’t deny that they are effective. Sure, you’ll destroy whatever trail you ride them on, but you can be certain you’ll make it up that slippery hill or through that muddy bog. That’s enough to bring a tear to the eye of any garage inventor looking for his big break.
