i run 27 itp trail masters right now and was wanting a taller tire, you think the 450 will pull 29.5 swamplites? or go with 28 mudzillas? or what about outlaws? i have a hmf pipe, snorkel and dynojet jet kit, and a fixing to install a EPI clutch kit.

Eurobro on this forum pulls the crap out of his 29.5 Outlaws with the same mods as you. I think you would do fine with the Swamplites.

Yeah, you should be fine depending on how hard you ride you might want to look into gorillas but other than that go for it.

Heck, if you can go bigger, do it. Just remember, the bigger the tires,
the more power loss you will have.

If you go 28s then I would go Zillas, they are easier to turn over in the mud than outlaws. And pull just as good.

They almost look too big for the Foreman. I bet they give it a few more
inches of ground clearance thats for sure.

The definately look meaty. Looking forward to se how well they pull. Did they have to trim the rear fenders much? Doesn't look like there is too much gone.

I wonder if they are heavier or lighter than the Mudlites?

29.5's are probly heavier than 30 mudlites because the 29.5 swamplite has more tread.
