I do alot of trail riding as well as mudding! I just bought an '06 Honda Foreman 500 and am looking to add a set of wheels and tires and would like to know what the perfect set of tires for my combo riding would be. Thanks ahead for the help guys.

bi/tri claws, 589's, executioners, vampires, mud bugs, and gators are all good mud/trail tires. you proubly dont want a pure mud tire since you ride on trails. hope this helps.

the gators are great combo tires, bi/tri's are also great on both situations

After hearing you guys and doing a little more research I'm leaning towards the Bi/Tri Claws. Here's a question. If I bought the 27" Magnum Bi/Tri Claw combo will they fit my stock foreman or am I going to have to do some modifications. Also do you think I might lose much power because of the weight and size of the tires?

I ride primarily trail and was considering either swamplites or mud lites. i have heard the Mud Lites actually do really well on trails and have a huge weight per tire advantage as opposed to others. What do you guys think?

A friend of mine runs the mud lites on his 2wd rancher and loves them. Great traction, but be carefull of the sidewalls, there a little weak. He hasn't had any problems but I know many that have but all have had problems when running low tire pressure. My friend runs about 5~6lbs and no punctures so far. Another guy that rides with us just got some swamplites and they look like basically the same tire except they are a little heavier. I think you would be happy with either.

I only got a clutch kit and mine turns them fine and they fit without a lift fine
