utv tire advice

Planning on buying an 2009 teryx, ordered msd, and muzzy exhaust. I have narrowed it down to 4 tire choices, 28" mud lites, 27 " mud lite xtr, 27" big horns and 28 " bear claws. Any recommendations. Mostly bush trails, gravel roads, and mud driving.

I would look at the Big Horns for sure, maybe even the Goodyear MT/Rs

Sorry Diesel but I hate the Goodyears! Love the XTR's, depends if you want to play in the mud or need that tractions, I wouldn't go for the 28" Mudlites - pretty rough, the Bearclaws are not a bad tire, good price normally compared to others but not alot of tread depth when you compare to a mud tire. If I didn't have the XTR's I would be putting on the Big Horns. Probably better for all around driving but I need the traction for what we have around here! Hope this helps somewhat.

Dalton Clutch Kit w/O.Drive
Muzzy's - ceramic coated

No problem at all Junior, granted, I am going to have to ban you but I appreciate your input. LOL!

Seriously though, The MT/Rs are a great tire, but I suppose it is more a desert / sand terrain tire (although considered a mud terrain) The Big Horns as I said before are a great tire.

I would do bighorns hands down. I personally don't like ITP tires even though I sell them.

Maxxis is a very high quality tire

The oil issue can be fixed by our STOP kit. I would wait until you have the issue then fix it.

Yes the new filter set up is pretty nice and will stop the issue of the stock filter not sealing good.

I like the mud bugs and zillas in the mud but still a good trail tire. The sidewalls seem to stand up better to rocks than the mud lite sidewalls.
