I just purchased a set of Mud Lite Tires for my Grizzly. I have 26-10-12 on the front and 26-12-12 on the back. I bought them because I heard they were great tires. I also saw a set of Bear Claws that were also 6 ply but about only 2/3 the cost. Does anybody know haow good the Bear Claws are. Did I make a mistake by buying the Mud Lites??

Well have to say that I have neither but if it was up to me I think I would have still spent the extra money on the Mud Lites. Im sure no mater what you will not be disapointed form all the Mud Lite owners that have talked about their tires allready.

I've got the mud lites, and I haven't been disappointed. I feel that you get what you pay for, and going Cheap isn't always better. I had a set of tires, can't remember the brand a few years ago, that were supposed to be 6 ply, and a small stick poked thru them,and they performed worse then stock!!!

My buddy has a set of Dirt Devils on his Banshee... they are unreal.. He NEVER gets flats or holes and the **** things are $35 each! He likes them alot, especially for the price. I am in the market for new tires and I was thinking about them. Has anyone here had them? They certainly stand up to the trails and rocks and we have trouble keeping up with him on the hills most of the time... We have 4x4 and he is on a sport quad! Even with 2 wheel drive he never has trouble getting traction.

For a general all around tire the Dirt Devils are a very good tire. One of the guys I ride with on occasion has a set and he goes everywhere. Never seen him in the nasty mud that just the mud worshippers enjoy but all general trail obstacles they handle. They handle snow pretty well and wear very good also. Whith these you want the 26" or larger in order to get the deep lug.

As for the Mud Lites Sailorman you will not be dissapointed. They are an excellent tire for all purpose riding and do a fairly good job in the mud. If all you do is look for nasty mud holes to go through there are better tires for that purpose but the Lites will still hold there own.

I've met a couple of people with Bear Claws and they seem happy with 'em. Unfortunately, I don't have anymore info than that.

The way I see it, if you can afford it, get the tire that's your first choice. If they're just too much for you to spend, there's nothing wrong with a cheaper tire.

I have 27" Mud Lites. Great tire, good in the mud, rocks, water....no problems except a weak side wall. I had a stick punch through one side wall. I had Slime in the tire, but would not stop the slow leak. I ended up putting in a tube.
