Trying to decide between maxxis zillas (same tire as CST Wildthang) and ITP mudlite 2. Atv is a 2017 outlander 650 XT bone stock. Going to step up from a 26 to 27” tire.

I do a bit of rock crawling nothing crazy, mixed in with hard pack trails and some mud/ water spots.

Can’t decide between the 2.

I’ve ran the zillas and they rock. Awesome in just about all terrains. I highly recommend them.

As for the plug lites, excuse me I mean mud lites. From what I’ve seen they are junk. 2 buddies ran them and I couldn’t tell you how many plugs they had in them

I was looking at them both and like the Mud Lite IIs. I can't say enough how I like they way they work. Snow, sand, rock , on the trail and a little mud too. Don't let anybody try and say they are like the older Mud Lites. Two very different tires period.. The Zillas are just as good, but you are the one who will have the final say. Good luck!

He is asking about the Mud Lite IIs, very different tire and wayyyy better. Don't confuse the two.

Thanks born2atv.

That has been my issue deciding between the 2. I only seem to find reviews on the old mudlite tire not the mudlite 2 tire.

I don’t believe there are many reviews on the mud lite 2 due to the fact that there are better options at better prices

WRONG! again, there are some You-Tube videos. I know I watch them. One that does compare the two. The ATV was a 1000 XMR IN THE VIDEO. When I purchase my Mud Lite IIs, I had both tires side/side and in my opinion the Mud Lite IIs had better tread and a stronger tire compound. If you pushed on their faces you could see a big difference. And to boot they were a only penny apart in price. Had them for just over two years and highly recommend them.

Both tires would still be a step up from the factory terracross tires?

On stock tires would the 28x9-14 and 28x11-14 fit, or would the 27x10-14 and 27x12-14 fit better?

So 28x9/11 -14 zillas will fit on a 2017 outlander 650 XT on stock rims with no spacers?

I fit 27x9 and 27x11 no problem with more then enough clearance. The 28s would clear too. Think about it, your only 1/2” bigger

Going from 26” terracross tires to 28 zillas which I believe are 2-3lbs heavier per tire will I NEED a clutch kit. I wouldn’t think that a couple pounds per tire would make a huge difference, but I have been known to be wrong in the past.
