Gators if you do hard core mudding..

Mudlites if you trail ride and do some mudding..

My next tire will be the Gator. I think they are great for the money.

I don't know about the Gators, but i've had my Mud Lites for a few years &
they still look great. Probably 97% tread left & we ride dang near every
weekend.

You might want to think about paying a shop to change the tires, I took mine in and the shop tryed to break the bead, after trying the one they use for cars and failing then the one they use for large truck tires and failed finally with some rigging up they used the tire changer they use to change tractor tires they got the bead broke and then after saying they charge 8 bucks a tire charged me 9.25 but they said it should have been more
