Need help choosing tires for my new 2010 Teryx 750

I just purchased my first side by side Teryx 750 about 2 months ago. It has stock rims and tires. I know I want to do 14in wheels on 27in tires. Would prefer 9 and 11s but know some models may be 10 and 12s. With budget in mind the mudlite xtrs seem to be higher than what I want to spend (even though I know they're superior to most and are radial). So now I'm down to 4 choices and can't decided. Swamplites, zillas (not mud zillas), motomax or mudlite xl. I live in Louisiana. Most of the riding I will be doing will be a combo of pavement and gravel (trying to limit pavement to min). I mostly do light chores around house with it. However, there will be times I will want to take it thru the mud or go mud joy riding thru trails with friends. I'm wanting to keep in mind that typically tires with a "centerline or center pattern" tend to ride smoother on hard surfaces. Also keeping in mind weight of these tires (which I've already researched all 4 - zillas lightest and motomax heaviest).


Couple things with each I'm worried about: swamplites are they going to wear quickly and holes hard to clean mud out? Zillas are they light because rubber walls are thinner? Mudlites will they wear too easy? Motomax look similar to mudlite xtrs but don't know much about the brand and is there too much space between knobs?

Any helpful experience and knowledge based upon my riding style and needs much appreciated!! I also have no aftermarket lifts or performance enhancers.

I have a 2010 Teryx and have been running the Mudlite XTR since I got it. I went with the 14" rims with 9"x 27" up front and 11" x 27" in back. The tires have plenty of life left in them and have always provided a good ride and able to get out of tough places. We ride mostly in the swamps, sand and mud in Florida, but have also done the Hatfield McCoy trail system which is a whole different type of riding (rocks and hard pack). I have cut the sidewall twice in the 4 years that I have had them (my fault one with a tree branch and one on the rocks ledges at Hatfield McCoy) but I would still put them up against any other tires of the same type.

I had the swamplites and really liked the tire. Mostly average trail riding with occasional mud, nothing to serious though!

I bought my 2010 with 14 inch wheels and ITP Terra Cross xt tires and would advise against the 14 inch wheels. I have had constant bead problems. The tires had bead leaks on all for wheels anytime I ran less than 18 psi. I've never seen 12 inch tires come off of the bead but I have knocked 2 tires off of the bead running 8-10 pounds in the tires. both times playing in my back yard in clay. one front on a hard turn and one rear landing form a jump a little crooked. I had the beads glued and that helped for a while but the bead leaks are back after driving on rocky trails. The 14 inch wheels look cool but I wouldn't buy them again.
