Tire advice

Couple questions.
I'm trading my 27 laws for one or the other below. Give me your advice on which you'd go with?

One guy has a set of 26 in 589's. 9x12 front and 12x12 rears.

Another guy has XTR's 27x 9x12 front and 27x 11x12 rear

Both sets have about 90% tread left. Which are better for all around riding? I will obviously still play in the mud but mainly want something that is not as rough on the trail.

both would work well for you, but if you still plan to play in the mud I would go with the 27" for the ground clearance.
Yeah, I was thinking of the 27's. I just researched tire weights and the xtr 27x9x12 is 28lbs. the 11x12 is 34lbs
The 589 26x9x12 is 27lbs and the 12x12 (they don't make a 11x12) is 32lbs.
I think for the minimal diiference I should go with the 27 xtr's.
By the way, I can't find a chart for the weight on the laws. anybody know what 27x 9x12's and 12x12's weigh?
