Hi, ive been looking for some new tires for my gade as the stocks are complete :th_smiliepissed: does anyone have suggestions for a good all around tire? Mud, gravel roads and tight dirt trails is what I ride mostly

I just got a set of HTRs, seem great so far. But I guess not super great in deep mud. Everyone says Bighorns, but Im tired of hearing bout them lol...

I also run htr's, I would say that match up good with what your riding.

I am running a 26" TerracCross XD on my Max and they are an awesome trail tire. 1500 km's and going strong. If I had a Renny I for sure would put these on.

GBC Dirt Commanders or Grim Reapers. Ive got the Dirt Commanders on my Gade and the Grim Reapers on My Rincon and they are both outstanding tires in virtually all conditions. (except heavy mud bogging, which I don't care about). Both are 8 ply radials, Ive had both down to the Rock House at Hatfield multiple times riding the black and black and red trails and have yet to plug a tire. The Rincon sees heavy plow duty every year (I plow multiple drives) and they do great in this aspect as well. Im honestly not sure which tire I prefer, they are both that good.

Better tires for Can Ams

Honestly; they were fine on my Grizzly when new, but ended up with lots of plugs and wearing quickly. If you want fast responsive handling and enjoy fast take offs, stay away from the Swamp Lite, the treadblocks are tall and squirm. You have to get on another bike with better rubber and then back on a bike with Swamp lites to realize the feeling. They are good in loose soil and gravel but horrible on firm surfaces. Can Ams weigh a fair bit more than the Grizzly 700 and the 650 and up have significantly more power; you will burn Swamp Lites off very quickly.

Swamp Lites are also lawn killers

I have HTRs and couldn't be happier. They fit my needs.

I would stay away from any paddle or "V" style tire. They are good in mud and snow but will be a compromise everywhere else. Definitely not the best design for a good multi use tire.

I have a set of original Bighorns on a set of extra Beadlock rims for my Renegade but I gotta say those holeshots that came on the Quad are good in everything but deep mud which I don't ride in

They do bite really good on most surfaces but wear really fast and suck in mud

That's true not a big mudder so not worried about that to much itching to try out the Bighorns

What Jmason said, I am a big fan of the reapers. Works well in all terrain, plus indestructible.
