im going to try a new set of rubbers on my 06 grizzly 660... i was looking at gettin itp 589s or mud lite xtr's but i really didnt want to spend that much on a tire since we do a lot of road riding between the mud pits, so i went with the ams swamp fox plus's in 27x12's... they are similar to the mud lite xtrs imo but only cost me about 85 a tire or so before tax... ill let you know how they hold up and go in the mud and other conditions...MUDLITE XTR on C7 rims, 27x9x14 on the front and 27x11x14 on the rear. I like the aggresiveness of the mudzilla but they are really heavy. The new xtr's are supposed to wear better than the older mudlites, and the radial gives you a wider footprint on the mud.
ive got a couple friends that run the mud lit xtrs and they all like them, but i like having a little taller lug... im more of a fan of the 589 m/s but i didnt feel like spending 600+ on the tires. so i went with a cheap imitation of the 589's...On my 800ltd I have 27"xtr's for trail and 28" Mudzilla's and 28" Outlaws
On my 650xt I have 27" Outlaw MST's and 27" Outlaws
By far the worst tire wear is the Xtr's but they are also the best riding tire too!!! So I guess you take the good with the bad. IMHO the Mst's are the best all around tire for wear and comfort/weight the only place they feel short is the mud but are still better than most in the mud for a all terrain tire.
My 2 cents, Cheers
Bighorns! For mud, I like the AMS Swamp Fox.i recommend the outlaws there not as smoth as others but they can get u through anything
I had them n my 400 also worked great until i put them on my 800 max and then they wore out fast i guess it was just too much power so i wouldn't recamend on a big borei recomend swamplites. i have had them for a year now and just cant say enough good about them.
Go to NH its much better.I just ordered a set of GBC Dirt Tamers on Vision Bruiser Black wheels from Devin at
so I will be submitting a review hopefully soon. I ordered the 25x8x12 front and 25x10x12 rear. They seem to have a similar tread pattern to the Bighorn and we'll see how they hold up to the rocky/rutted out Massachusetts State Forests soon.
