I had 28" Bugs on my Foreman and I did not like them in the mud. Not aggressive enough and kind of clumsy on trails. I have never run Exec. but if they are anything like the 589's I've run, I say go with the Exec. hands down.
Sounds like you need some Bi/Tri-Claws. Ride like stock tire but will out mud the Bugs any day of the week. I do not have any personal experience with the Executioners but I cannot imagine that they would keep up with the Claws. I have had two sets of these tires and they have been great; only problem is that bean stubble was puncturing tire.
i have 27" mud bugs and overall i like them . go to www.highlifter.com and you can find a tire spec chart that lists all tires and what the different sizes weigh. if i wasn't going extreme and putting on a lift and 28" outlaws then i have only one thing i would change with the mud bugs. i would buy 2 new 27-12-12 mud bugs to put on the front instead of the 10's. just for the fact the rear 12's have deeper wrap around shoulder lugs than the 10's. it would definitely not handle as good with 12's all the way around but im not worried bout handling and ride. i am willing to sacrifice that for being able to outmud my buddy on his polaris - that is if it don't break before it gets to the mudhole . anyway i don't think you will be dissatisfied with the mudbugs if you purchase a set and i would at least go with 26's . look at my personal gallery and find the red "snorkeled rubicon." it is stock no lift and no springs with 27-12-12 rears and 27-10-12 fronts on 12" itp black delta wheels. and yes i know its alil dirty haha.
