Go for #1 it was the first to come to your brain and is the best choice, IMO

nope, not a David allen coe fan and i am going to play on my new toy this weekend:twisted:

I do have all the bells and whistles....HMF,K&N,Dynojet kit...etc. and my bike turns the bi/tri's fine. in fact last weekend at L-cross i pretty much went everywhere in 2 wheel drive(obviusly there were a couple of exceptions )

you do have to feather the throttle a little bit when going through deep mud or the tires tend to dig down a bit but they are a HUGE upgrade from the 26" 589's i had before these. I also believe these tires are lighter than my 589's were, because i swear my bike is faster now than with the 589's on it plus they are just as smooth if not smoother than my previous tires.

in my opinion there are really only 2 choices in tires for the riding conditions down here, bi/tris and 29.5's.

as far as that 18,000 acres go, good luck...the county keeps buying all the good pieces, and deeming it wetlands.
I am honestly considering getting a Rhino just so i can go in Corbitt area and play. theorectically all off road vehicles are allowed in there as long as it has a wheel base longer than 60".....that means no 4 wheelers but they didnt have Rhino's when they made that rule

they are almost as smooth as stock. you will not have any problems with them. the only time they do ride rough is if you are under 5 mph even then its not really rough just alittle bumpy. you will not regret getting the bi / tris.

with the choices you have here i would go with the claws. another tire is the kenda executioners. they are a little bit more of a trail tire compared to the claws but they are also good in mud.
