I am looking for some input on some mild mud tires for my Sportsman. I want to put on 27" (has 26" stock size). There are so many to choose from and they are not cheap spend so if you are happy with what you purchased let me know. Thanks, Rrudzi

I handled the Pit Bull's at A truck show and sidewalls felt flimsy to me. I could see a stick in the sidewall.

I like my 27" XTRS for a mud tire and the only complaints I have are reversing in the snow and climbin' wet logs. I have about 800 miles on them. The 29.5" Outlaws are great in the mud but wear fast on hard pack and do pull and vibrate at high speed (35+). I put about 200 miles on them and use them mostly for muddin'. I was looking at the 31" silverbacks but read in an article that the way the lug pattern is laid out they have trouble clawing out of holes.

For an all around trail tire you can't match the bighorns and they do OK in the mud but the tires don't self clean very well.

I'm running 28" mudzillas for right now. They ride a little rough up til 10 mph but they are great in the holes. I didnt go with the outlaws or backs because I have heard they wear pretty easily on hard pack surfaces. The Mudzillas will wear like iron and probably outlast the atv.

If the mudzillas are little too extreme and your looking for decent mud capabilities with trailing capabilities look at the following tires. They are a step down in mud performance but have much better trail handling capabilities: Kenda Executioners, Maxxis Mudbug, ITP 589's.

The Bighorns are awesome on the trail but you will have some difficulty with the mud as Swampcat stated above because they don't clean out very well. But the are probably the best trail tire on the market at this point. I have a set to throw for the trail rides but never really use them anymore because I love running the Mudzillas.

My 27" ITP 589's are wearing like iron and there OK, I just don't like the bump steer that I think is from the lugs on the outside of tire. Plus they are heavy as crap and really like to dig in the snow instead of riding on the snow LOL!! For the money there is better tires out there. what ever tires I get they are always atleast 6ply, I hate plugging tires along the trail. LOL!!

I've got the MudLite XL's and they are OK for a trail tire. I'm not super impressed with their mud capabilities, but they do OK (OK in the snow too i guess). I hear the XTR's and Zilla's are about the two best Mud/trail tires out there and the Zilla's are really light. Bighorns would be good for anything else but I have heard like others, that they don't clean the best. Mudbugs, 589's, Outlaw MST's, swampwitch, swampLites, are some other good tires as well.

My buddy has the Pit Bull tires on his Honda and they perform extremely well in the mud. They clean out very well and do not pack up. I would suggest the Pit Bull's for a great all around tire.
