Showing the small amount that it sticks out past the fenders. Honestly, this looks no worse than the setup I had with 26" mudlites on stock rims on the rincon...are we sure the T-5's make it wider than using stock tires??
Thanks man!!! I'm Glad that you like it. Thank you for your help with my decision, without your input I would have gotten the T-6's and after seening the lip on these T-5's its amazing how thick and strong these rims look!!
BTW, how much air pressure are you running in yours? Mine were shipped with 15# in them...I lowered the rear to 6psi, and the fronts to 5psi...what is everyone running?
I have been running 5psi on all four tires. I started with 7psi when I first installed them and after a few rides I dropped them all down to 5. I read on another forum some guys are running 3psi on all four. I guess it just depends on personal preference.
I also have the 26" Mudlites with T-5's. I am waiting for some serious snow here so I can give them a true test, New England style. I had 589's on my Kodiak and those tires did awesome in snow. So when I wanted new tires for the Grizzly it was between the Mudlites and the 589's. I chose the Mudlites but I still am skeptical on how they will work in the snow like the 589's did. I did read on another forum where a guy from Canada had them on his Grizzly and he stated they suck in snow. He also stated that they all run the ITP ATR's in the winter and they work the best in snow. So with that info I read I can only hope he was wrong. The Mudlite tread design and relatively close to the same tread as the 589's so I would seem to think they will work just as good as the 589's did in snow. I am keeping my fingers crossed!
I don't see why they wouldn't be good in the snow. Those seem to be the tire of choice and most likely what I'll go with when I get my Grizz. Anyone try the Goodyear MTR tires off of the Arctic Cat line? I have the same tread pattern on the Samurai I'm selling and had them on my Grand Cherokee as well. Great all around tire.
As soon as I can give my Mudlites a test in snow, I will be sure to post how they compare to my old 589's. So far the forcasts have been talking "possible" 'Noreaster for Monday, but snow is on its way soon enough I would hope. If the Mudlites don't do good in the snow my next plan will be trying some ATR's and mount them on my stock rims for the winter. The Lites do work GREAT in the mud but now mud season is just about done and snow season is just begining.
