Personally I like the Gators for riding around here. There is not much weight difference betwwen the two.

30 or 28 mudlites
might be hard to get the 30's to fit though
27's would also be a wise choice
the gators ware down twice as fast as the mudlites also mudlites are a little liter i think and i think they have more tread

Gators all the way. My gators killed my buddies mudlights and I'm only running them on the back.

I have had Gator tires in the past and found them to be great tires. They rode a little rough, but not that ad at all. I have never had Mudlights, but I know people that do and they like them. I don't think you could go wrong with Gator, but pick one you like.

I have mudlites and my buddy has gators on his 425 PoPo and he generally gets throught the GA clay muck easier than I do. I ride a little bit smoother and I trail ride more than he does so it's all in the type of riding you do...

Go with the mud bugs. They are lighter than the gators, similar in weight to the mud-lites and have similar traction to the gators and better traction than the mud-lites.

pic between mudlites and mudbugs, foreman450rider has 27 bugs on his foreman and i find them to pull pretty good but mudlites ride a little smoother and the tread on mudbugs wears down quicker than the tread on the mudlites...put a lift and 27 or 28 of either bugs or lites or whatever you like the best...the choice is up to you...vampire asx's may also be a good choice...they look like they ride smoother than regular vamps and have more sidelug to get you through the mud.

dont know of any one that has them though, maybe someone on this forum knows how they do but I am not sure...I am certain, however that they should pull as good or better than lites or bugs or gators, and come in 26 which would be best for you if you like to trail ride alot so you dont have to put a lift...if you want a lift I highly recommend buying one custom made so you can save money and have it made to your likings..

I have vampires as do several of my freinds... they pull great in the mud if you are easy on the throttle...they dig a good bit if you aren't.

they ride kinda rough but not to bad...one thing I dont like about them is when making steep dry climbs they tend to spin more than other tires because of the tooth like shape of the tread.

have any questions just pm me or whatever i am sure someone on this forum has the info you are looking fo

nope, its a 99 or so with a swingarm and a single shock. He has a 2in lift on his as well but still doesnt match the ground clearance of the foreman so he does bottom out more

I think if your going to be riding a lot more trails than mud, then the Mudlites should work for you. If you like mudding more than trail riding, then the lites might not be for you, they are a very good trail, climbing, tire but not the best for mudding. I run 26x9x12's on mine and I really like them and haven't noticed any power loss either. I ride mostly trails and do encounter some mud, but only when going from point A to point B, I don't go looking for it. I've also used it to cross some pretty fast and deep rivers and creeks, they have perfomed well in all of them so far.
