on the XMR they are skinnys all the way around as well. I was in peanut butter type mud which is not worth a shiz. It sucks up your bike, it seems like that is all we have in louisiana, i have to find a better place to ride, i like mud but not this shiz. I just think hitting the side of the rut with the tires spinning faster then they should have been caused the tire to blow off the rim. It just happened so fast i wish i could have remembered. I guess we all feel like that when something happens lol.

Are bead locks something good to invest in?

My wife had the same thing happen in the mud. She was going thru the mud and then gased it and turn the wheel. When she came out of the hole spinning and hit the ard stuff it spun the wheel right off. They had been on for 2 years at 7psi. So I think you just had a freak thing there.

Bead locks are an option but they only help the outside of the tire i am guessing. its funny the people who own silverbacks love them and hate laws, the ones who have laws hate silverbacks. half dozen of one 6 of another. maybe outlaws might be my next choice since they are more of a paddle tire and not a digging tire. We have trails here and then all of a sudden a hole that looks a foot deep is actually 6 foot deep. So you definatly need a tire that can some what get you through that crap and the hole is deciving, once you are commited to going through then its like someone drops the bottom out.

I've rode with many people with Laws and wasn't too impressed. And definitely not in the peanut butter mud you're talking about. He was driving a Brute Force, but that shouldn't make too much of a difference lol. He had me beat on ground clearance but he couldn't make it though. So he told me to try and I eventually made it I was just sweating and about to pass out when I made it to the other side lol.

I think they are about on par with each other because there's nothing that you'll sink in that they won't. Backs do dig but 9/10 times they find the bottom and if they don't they still try and help ya move forward lol. The only times I've been stuck with them is in nasty stuff liek you're referring to but it was up to my seat and no quad would have made it thought. And they were both accidents because like you said they looked like they had maybe a foot of mud in them but when I ran into it the bottom fell out.

I change my mind about my air pressure...........Thanks for reminding me to check it.

I have 7 in all 3 tires...yes 3 because apparently my front left side got the valve stem tore off sometime last week.

Therefore I can confirm that these tires can run on 0psi on non beadlocks lol.

0 PSI and not come off the rim. I know they are stiff tires but man all you have to do is seat them then let all the air out? i guess i will run 15 and see what it does. they are stiff, i don't notice much of a difference between 7 and 15 from the apperance at least. I will find out this weekend.

It's still seated on the rim and the only time I could have torn it off was about half way through the run when I got in some peanut butter junkkk. I'm surprised it's still on the rim and that I didn't even notice it lol. Definitely since the other tires have pressure. Not exactly sure when it came off, but even on the way back to the truck I was going pretty fast through the trails lol.

maybe silver backs are a bad ass tire, Its just the dealer that sold me the bike also sells tires, and they don't know shiz about them. They sell them and that is all. It is like if i have a problem and tell them about it, they are like oh that is good knowledge to know. I know they sell the ones they make the most profit on but damn sell to peoples needs a little too, i think they forget about the word of mouth.

I feel like i should open a dealership up and put them out of business, from there lack of knowledge.

Why is it so hard these days for people to have product knowledge about the stuff they sell and their competition.

I think the only thing these sales people do all day is shit with their thumb up their ass and for excitement they pull it out every once in a while and lick it then put it back in.

Then if you call gorilla they are worse, they are like you are having a problem with our products that can't be.

I fell like sometimes we are the quality control on their products, i love the bike and i love the tires but damn i find more by talking to everyone here on this fourm

thanks everyone
