Im ready to try something else other then the mudbugs. Do some mud riding, lots of water riding, trail riding, etc.
I will probably stick with 27s. Need some suggestions, expierences?? After seeing the Bi/Tri Claws, im thinking either those or Mudzillas. Which are lighter, cheaper, generally wear and ride better?
Any other good tire suggestions??

Its tough to say the Claws sure look good but you do no tsee a lot of them around to compare them. I hear they ride the smothest of the "pure mudders" and perform as good as any of them too. Well at least the triclaws. I think the claws run about $10 cheaper per tire than the zillas.

I say go with the zillas. They will ride very smooth on the trails and work awesome in the mud.

I dont think im gonna go there yet. I just see to many people trying to get rid of Outlaws on the Highlifter forums, and they all are fairly new. I dont need that hardcore of a mud tire I dont think.

As an owner of outlaws, I would't buy them again. They do very well at throwing debris up on to people riding behind you. (soryy guys). And They do make one heck of a roost in the mud, once you get them going. I think they take too much power to turn in the thick stuff. Of course that is why they are so good, because they bite at such a big section of the mud or ruts.

The ride doesn't bother me. They will beat you do death on the blacktop, but I am on on the to run to the end of my street and back to warm the motor up. They are not bad on the trails, but our trails are mostly soft anyway.

I would go Zillas all around or even 27 zillas on the front w/ triclaws on the back. I just don't like the looks of the biclaws.

I have the bi/tris on my 450 and I love them. They are VERY smooth on the hard pack, tough as nails, mud like no tomorrow, climb well and are good on rocks. The only bad thing about them as with any agressive mud tire is they will dig you to china in sand if you spin them. Other than that they are a great all around tire. I have pics of them if my sig.

Has anyone tried Kenda bear claws?? I had a set on the rear of my 250 recon and drove circles around my buddy's. And i'm not sure what size to go up to , with all the breaking of axles and clearance issues i was thinking of stock size or one up from that.

Bearclaws are not much more aggresive than stock. If you ride mountains or trails mostly they will do good. But down here in the water and thick muck they are not the first choice. They will be an improvement over stocker's performance. They are mainly a dry or loose trail tires.

You can run 26 or 27 w/o a problem, if you stick mainly to the trails then go w/ 26s to get a bit of highth, but keeping the bike performance loss to a minimum.

Thanks for the input. Most of the trails are a good mix up here so i think 26 is the size to go to. Maby Mud lights, it seems to be a common tire.

Look into the Mudbugs too, they are a great all around performer, inexpensive, and ride pretty smooth.

this may help if mudding is not your main option.

I will tell you of an AWESOME all purpose tire that gets no respect. I have had them and saw in person what they can do on numerous occasions. I have yet to find anyone who had them who EVER found a better all around tire. It is the Cheng Shin Lumber Jack. It is similar to the Chevron but better. I personally have pulled into a mud hole with my lumber Jacks and pushed a stuck quad with strykers out, without getting stuck myself. They grab rocks good and clean well in mud. They rovide a very smooth ride on hardpack.
Why they get no respect is beyond me. Maybe because they look old school a bit? But newer is not always better
