I've got an 04 foreman with mudlites, which suck really, really bad. The Vampires are good though. But anyway, I'm looking at new tires and I was thinking either 27" Gators? or Mudbugs?

they are pretty much the same thing, i have gators on my old 300 and they do great but they do wear kind of bad. if it was me i would get the bugs just because people say they wear better but its up to you, they both do great.

Gators are pretty heavy aren't they? Would I be better with Mudbugs in deep mud?

Will 27" Gators scrub anywhere without a lift?

I just ordered my gators!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks to Flip I got them way cheaper than any store in my area!! Thanks Flip!!!! 26x10x12 fronts, and 26x12x12 in back for $269.00 to my door!!! I had just priced them at the local farm store and they were going to be $360.00 before taxes. CRAZY! I can't wait, I know they are kinda heavy but the hmf, jet kit and k and n air filter should make up for it, when I get them anyway. I wont be able to sleep now lol.

Wow talk about heavy. The gators weigh 96.2 pounds MORE than the stock tires! But only weigh (the back tires) 12.2 pounds more than the mudlite xl's. I hope the hmf, jet kit and k&n filter will make up for the loss and then some.

Dunlop.com says the stock foreman tires weigh 14lbs in front and 18lbs in back. The gators website says the 26x10x12's weigh 26.7 and the 26x12x12 weigh 33.3. If my math is right that makes them 160.2lbs and the stock tires 64lbs. With a difference of 96.2lbs more am I correct?

that sounds like alot. i put my stockers with wheels on scale and just changed them to 27" bi/tri's. there was like 78 pounds difference between the four tires. i used a home scale and subtracted my weight. i thought i had a lota extra weight.

I weighed my stock tires and wheels before I mounted my Mudlites on the factory wheels and then weighed them with the Mudlites mounted ont the stock wheels and I came up with about a 40 pound difference over the stock set up.

It sucks to have something you really want sitting next to your fourwheeler and you cant mount them up and go try them out. A good friend of mine was all ready to mount them for me and we were going to go test them out. MAN THIS SUCKS!!!

did you get them from extreme outdoor products big daddy. if so i think im the only persons order that they didnt screw up on. my brother had the same problem, he ordered 27" mudlites and they sent him 2-26" and 2-27"
well anyways i hope you like the gators as much as i do
