I know that is a little bit of a different question. Iam currently running stock tires on my 07 outlander 500xt and am looking at replacing the tires. We do a lot of riding on gravel roads and also a lot of riding in the creeks and trails. Iam wanting a tire that will handle the abuse of the road and also perform well in the mud and the trails any suggestions? Thanks

So far, I'm really loving my 28" mayhems, but my usage is different than yours.

Coming from a Grizzly I had 27" Interco Reptiles when I was stationed at KY/TN area, & a lot of the same terrain you have, lotta loose dirt, hills, muddy, rocks etc, people have their own opinions on them but they did great for me, never got stuck in anything, 6 ply/radial tire so they're durable & tough, they do have have some weight on them (not as bad as Pitbull's) compared to others, since I was a slow trail rider it didn't really matter to me, never really noticed. The Bighorns are very reputable, durable tires but if you get them wet & go through some dirt & the mud sticks in the lugs on the tire then they'd lose a lot of traction from what I saw with guys I rode with, that tread pattern design was a PITA for them to clean, just my observations. The Reptiles I went rock crawling, water, snow, light mud & loose dirt with them in VA, KY, TN & other terrains & they got me where I needed to go, never left me stranded, no puncture issues. Just need to really look at weight & which one fits your terrain you normally use it for, although heavier tires justify more performance goodies so its a win-win :) Excuse I used with the wife...........Just my .02 happy hunting
