Tire suggestions

I recently purchased a 2002 Foreman 500 Rubicon. It currently has 475 miles on it and the tires are like new however im looking for something that offers a bit more traction. I have had ITP mudlites in the past and they seem to do really well in most conditions i encounter. I mostly use the four wheeler for trail riding, some dirt roads and ice fishing. I am not looking to deviate from stock size as i want to maintain current power/speed however i want something a tad bit more aggressive.

I am looking at two different tires.

Kenda Bear Claws or ITP Mudlites. As I stated Ive had the Mudlites on other wheelers and really liked them. The Bear Claws do have a nice looking tread pattern that looks like it would be good for all conditions i ride in. Hard packed trails, some mud, dirt roads, snow and ice fishing.

let me know if you've run either or prefer one over the other!

pitbulls, 589's, ex's also all get my vote for a decent all over tire with more aggressive tread!

I've run 26" 589s and 26" mudlites, they really didn't suck any power and worked excellent.
