I run swamp lites on 1 of my Grizzlys great tire works real good and ride super smooth only complaint would be the side walls are to stiff even with zero pounds in them there is no give. My next tire purchase for my 2nd Grizzly will be Bighorns[cheers] .

Just took the Mudlites off my Grizz at 8500km and still had 30% left on the rears and 75+% on the fronts. Great tires, traction, ride, puncture resistant - never had to do a trail repair just a plug here and there from slow leaks, and they last forever and are still one of the cheapest tires out there.

For replacement I got some Swamplites and so far they are ok, good traction and ride quality. Not sure about the sidewalls being stiffer, I got 27's this time (from 26 mudlites) and on the stock 12" rims they seem like they flex too much on corners, might be better with a wider rim but I just slowed down a bit on the corners. :D

The side walls are so stiff on mine that they stay rigid even when my Son put a 4" right angled bend in my alloy

I have 4000 KM on my mud light radials they cost a bit more but they are bullet proof. its been 5 years and probably 1000 KM on pavement plowing snow. and still just down to about 50%
