I have always run ITP mud light tires and it's time for some new rubber.

What do you run and what do you like and dislike about your tires?

12-02-2013, 12:24 AM
I would stick with them they work great.. A always have.

Interco makes some though and i must admit im tempted

Always broke

I have mud lite xl's. I find they are loose on fsr roads and wicked every where else. Try calling ITC in surrey, they got me mags for 6 bucks more then the cheasy OEM wheels that I punched full of holes doing a river crossing.

These will be the next tires I run http://www.stitireandwheel.com/2012/12/roctane-xd/ far superior to Mud Lites

Interco all the way for life:D

Mudlite XL's, got almost 10,000km on the fronts and they are still in great shape - 70%+, replaced the rears at 9000km so pretty impressive wear. Couple of slow leaks but never had one bad enough I had to do a trail repair unlike all my stock tires I've had on the other quads. These are 26's

I also have a set of 27" Swamplites on another set of stock rims for the Grizz that I run in the fall/early winter. True 27" tall so gives a little more clearance. Haven't put enough miles on them to see how they wear but no leaks yet and good overall traction. Mud not so much but we don't get a lot of that around here.

Go for some old school bear claws, buddy had them on his 2wd quad and went every where we went on our 4x4's with the interco 27 inch swamp lites

12-02-2013, 07:23 PM
i put swamp lites on mine. good overall. they have dimples on the treads and mine wore down to those super fast. they should last longer now that it is down to solid tread

I've had 28" Mudzillas on my zuki for a few years. I've run a lot of the trails you do. Still have a lot of exploring to do though.
For the mud they seem to work pretty damn good, logs and roots not super ideal but with enough pepper on the throttle I haven't had any real trouble.
Snow........start walking.
For mild stuff I have a set of 26" terracross

On a side note do you have one of these hooked up to your Grizz yet?
Pricey but worth every penny. One of the best upgrades I ever bought for my Zuki

Iím looking close at the

ITP XTR radial tire


Or the Mud lite XL


Here is a reviews


12-08-2013, 01:21 PM
I don't think the Bighorns 2.0 are aggressive enough


I in the running is the Kenda Bearclaw HTR 8ply


12-08-2013, 01:22 PM
I had 27" XTR's on the Polaris and they constantly leaked. Too weak for my riding. A buddy had them a few years ago and same issue. And you'll swear you have a flat whenever you park with one tire up on an object, they squish that much.

Radials are for cars and suvs :D

12-08-2013, 01:27 PM
I'm reading lots of reviews that say the XTR leaks as well.

12-08-2013, 01:31 PM
Hey Kcat not a bad looking tire


12-08-2013, 02:11 PM
OK......this one could be the winner

28" maxxis Zilla's

light weight, aggressive and really good reviews


12-08-2013, 04:21 PM
I haven't put too many km on the swamplites I have for my Grizz, but no leaks at all and good overall traction. 27" tall too, where the 27" XTR's were actually 26" when measured.

A friend had 27" Zilla's on his Brute and loved them, rode everything we did, no flats and wasn't scrambling for traction.

im enjoying my princessauto kumhos....[36] ..
they seem to get me where i need to go:D .


12-09-2013, 08:37 PM
yup going with the 28" Maxxis Zilla's


28X10-12 front
28x12-12 rear

12-09-2013, 08:43 PM
i had swamplites and i hated them, rears were almost dead in 1000km and full of plugs look at a rock or root and they would get a hole... i have the mudlite xls now and they are far superior...

12-09-2013, 09:04 PM
I have the mudlite XL now and they are full of sidewall holes. After researching it seems there is a ton of people that have the same problem.

12-09-2013, 10:21 PM
these tires on these rims and the knitted cozies for when its cold.:D




12-10-2013, 08:54 AM
I'm switching to these


12-10-2013, 04:11 PM
Bear claws all the way

12-10-2013, 04:33 PM
I have seen good reviews of that tire

12-10-2013, 05:59 PM
They are killer in all terrain , and have a great tread life

12-10-2013, 06:04 PM
The zillas are good for off road only , suck ass if you need to do any pavement riding just to let you know , when looking at tires kev don't forget to consiter that a directional tire sucks ass when haveing to reverse

12-10-2013, 10:52 PM
I like to beat my quad. I don't drive on the street or even do much logging roads. I'm not looking for a general use fire. It sounds like I picked the right one for how I ride

12-11-2013, 06:34 AM
I had swamp lites on my 700 grizz and had a couple sidewall problems. Not very thick. Insane tread depth on them though and they grab everything!

12-11-2013, 09:48 AM
Here is a picture of the Bear claws




12-11-2013, 10:26 AM
We run bear claws on our John deere gators here at work not much trail type stuff but they grab all year round and our yard is 4' of mud In wet season ,no sidewall issues yet few flats due to rebar that's sticking up everywhere in our yard lol

12-12-2013, 01:59 PM
im running 28 itp mega mayhems they seem great in all terrain even hard surfaces ,wet logs not the best.

12-26-2013, 08:16 AM
Two buddies have the bear claws one on a Kodiak 450 one on a raptor 660 (think its 660 one of the early ones) work well on the raptor but on the Kodiak even with the locker not so great no leaks though or plugs and work well on FSR roads and seem to get good wear. I have 27" mud lite XL's on my king quad 700 IRS and 25" mud lites on my in-laws Rincon 650 IRS they work very well in the bush but both quads have bead leaks no matter what I do and there a little squishy on FSR but as long as there touching ground they'll pull you threw but I'm very worries about poking holes in them I talk to lots of guys that have, guys I talk to in Summerland area won't run them because of that and all the shale.

P.S I may have some low hour 27" mud lite XL's on SS IRS rims I may think of selling ;-) pm me if anyone's interested
