Im running the 27in MudBugs with Stock wheels, so far so good, didnt hurt the power to bad, I do think some aftermarket wheels will help out and give me some more width though.

We use 26 inch ITP MudLights. I have Rubicon aluminum wheels on mine. They are quite a bit lighter than the stock grey steel wheels. My wife runs stock wheels. I wish Honda would make their wheels black instead of that dull, boring grey.

My Outlaws bog a bit in the thick stuff. But when the HMF arrives that should take care of that problem

running 27" Bi/Tri-Claws, on itp c-series wheels, haven't tried out the tires in any thick stuff yet but have rode on hard pack and to me they ride smoother than my mudlites did.

The outlaws are not very good in the sand either. They did to slip and throw up quite a bit in the air. Even when your not doing it on purpose. Just ask the folks the rode behind me. I think I'll just stay towards the back of the pack from now on.

27" Dirt Devils. Great in the mud so far with a comfortable ride. Will be trying them out at Tellico on the 10th-12th of March.

I have 28x10x12 mudbugs on ft and 28x12x12 mudzillas on the rear,no hardpack trails to ride around here(mud only). I use the bugs up front for steering ease and weight,tends not to strain ft axles as much as real aggressive tread....

Its the same ground clearance. I never rode the 450 so I can't really compare. But from what I understand, it has more power, but is geared a bit taller than the 450. No problems w/ low end. First is only needed in very thick mud. It does start in gear and normal take off is in 2nd gear. I beleive it has better fender clearance for bigger tires as well.

You should try them in snow, but you dont get any. I am having a snowball fight with all who ride behind me, these things throw up some mean snowballs, they are the size of baseballs sometimes. Its great, except I have to ride in the back now. In 4x4 Im having a snowball fight with myself from the front tires, If it doesnt throw it directly at you your driving into the balls it throws way out ahead of you. LOL

I have not been on a 450 in a long time so I cant tell you the differance. I do have a buddy with one and we might go riding soon so maby I will be able to answer that question then but not now.

It has alot of low end. 1st is really low and you could probably ride around and never use it on normal use. 2 has alot of grunt also.
It is very easy to get the tires spinning and fishtailing and all that... even with the mudlites I still put her sideways in turns just for the fun of it with no effort at all.

Few pics of my 500 right after bolting on the mudlites before I ever took them out and got them dirty
