Anyone use Mudzilla tires on their Grizzly? The local shop has a set of 26" Mudzilla tires that look about as bad to the bone as a tire can possibly look. Just wondering how well they would work in the Western US (Utah)?
I've looked into this tire alot. As you know, I'm in the market for new tires. I love the mud, but I ride alot of trails too. The main problem I see w/ mudzillas (besides the price) is the fact that they are a purpose built tire. They are good at their specialty...MUD! But if you plan on riding anything else, they will remind you of that "purpose built" thing everytime. However, you're in utah, so I assume you ride rocks alot, which the large lugs would probably claw up just about any boulder you stick in front them. Awsome looking tire...for sure!
I think I could sit here half the night watching your Gif on the message you
I walked into the Yahmaha shop in Magnolia,AR in Oct of 2002 and the wheeler
that I was looking for,was sitting there in the show room floor.A silver Mettalic 660 2002 model that I had been hunting for all over the country and everybody was sold out of them execept Magnolia tractor.
Only thing was! It had a set of 28 inch mudzillas on it and it did look bad to the bone.It seemed like you weir climbing up on a small horse instead of a 4 wheeler.But when I took it for a test ride on their lot at slow speed,the tires seemed as if they would shake everything loose at slow speed on concrete.
I can`t see how the factory could warranty a wheeler sold with these overily agreesive tires from a dealer.If you ever got them to spin and all of a sudden
got them to grip it seems like the axle,cv joints,or differential would have to break somewhere.
But the tire size you are talkin about should do great and not tear up your drivetrain.Alot of people here in the South love the these tires.
Hey swampy! Are you at all familiar w/ gators? I just never hear anything about them... good or bad. I've asked around on this forum a few times w/ no responses. I like the looks of this tire, and it's not extremely heavy (26x12x12 = 30lbs.) Any encounters? thanx
p.s. I agree with swampy on the Gif, outerlimit, that's awesome!
Hey bluegrizz...just talked to a guy that was running the gators on his new Kodi 450. He said they were ok. Not as rough of a ride as some but you could still feel it on any hard paked surface. He also told me that for normal trail ridding he had a set of ATR's that he used because of the ride. The ATR's can get him through most any trail except when he plans to go paly in the mud. Hope that helps, did not talk to him long.
The Gators down here in the South are starting to get a lot more popular than the Mudzillas because of the performance in the really soft goo.But they are are as bad on hard service ground as the Mudzillas at slow speeds,if your are riding beside somebody and trying to talk to them at the same time you better stop so they can over come the studdering problem in your voice.
I do not try to push a certain product toward anybody,all I can say is that I have a set of tires that work extremly well for the places I ride.
Got them at a steal.Super Swampers-Vampires with steel chrome wheels for
$125.00.The Front tires had about 1/4 inch gone off them because it was run
on a fulltime four wheel drive Wolverine,but the back tires were in excellant shape.They claw! and clean! extreamly well for the places I ride and are not to harsh a riding tire .25x12.00-12 rear and 25x9.50-12 front.
I usally go 2 psi under the recommended tire pressure if I am not either pulling or carrying a heavy load for a better ride.
Also I belive in staying close to a stock tire size to keep the factory performance level up to where the wheeler was designed to do!Like on take off and corning stability.Smokem and take numbers is my moto!
If you want a a really bad set of tires.Go to search and look for Super Swampers web site.Call up the atv tire section and look at the Super Swamper asx aysumetrical atv tire.It has biting lugs all the way around the tire, not just around the impact of the tire to the ground.If you get into some bad ruts,it will grab on the sides of tire and set you free!
Thanx, swampy! I am actually very familar w/ swampers, but they are just a little too much for me. I was looking at the 28" edl's... mean, oh so mean! But they are just to heavy. I ordered a set of mudlites (26") yesterday (new on ebay for 200, I couldn't pass it up) thanx though!!
I just got to test out my new mudzillas and they are awesome. I have a set of 589s on my bigbear and they don't even compare. The only down side is the vibriation at low speeds, but that is only if you riding on the road. I am willing to deal with the vibriation for the performance you get out of these. When you mash the gas you better make sure that nobody is behind you, because they throw a roost ten foot behind you.
