Is anyone running or has ran the EFX motoclaw ? I like the looks of it but can't fint a lot of info on them. I seen where you can get them in a 30-10-14 or a 30-10-16. I think the 16's would look good on the T4 I'm looking at.

Its really good to hear from people that have had silverbacks and outlaws! Even to get an idea of the new monsters is great. I have only had itp 25" mud lights, 27" executioners, and now 29.5" outlaw2's.... The mud lights did o.k. I really liked the exacutioners! I don't think you could ever wear those things out! They are one tough little tire, but just to small for a serious mud tire. I've only had the outlaw2's out 1 time since I got them on...and I snapped a front axle. I kinda figured it would happen with stock axles, and so I spent the rest of the day in 2 wheel drive. They hung right with the regular outlaws all day long and I was in 2wd the whole time. I think it depends ALOT on the atv operator also because there was a few times when I drove right through ( in 2wd drive mind you) were some 4wheelers with 4wd got stuck. No offense to anyone....but it was always the same two guys on Yamaha grizzlys. They had 28" silverback lites they said. So outlaw 2's get my vote.

2008 brute w/outlaw 2's, H.D. Bead locks, highlifter pro axles, 2" lift kit, m.i.m.b snorks, full muzzy exhaust, 3500 super winch, EPI clutching, wild boar rad, and engine retard chip. Looking at getting an MSD fuel/ignition module from VFJ.

Just bought a 2013 Polaris 550 XP limited edition w/power steering for the wife. Stock everything....for now.

While I have 30" silverbacks on my brute force and absolutely love them, there is an affordable mud tire that out pulls what it was copied from. Super Grip Mud *****es. IF you are not planning on going bigger than 28" these are great tires. You do not have to turn them hard, they dig great. I have 27" mud *****es on an 02 sportsman and on a Foreman 450. Not only do they perform great they also last. The first set I bought were ridden hard down in south Miami where it's rock bottom. They are still on my 450. I wouldn't give up my silverbacks but if ur not going huge and trying to save money these tires arevworth looking at. Just my .02

I'll add another vote for the Mega Mayhem. Sure, it's no Outlaw or Silverback, but in my opinion, if you're researching properly, you won't expect it to be.

However, mine so far have stuck side by side with two other Brutes, one on 28" OG Outlwas, the other on 28" Silverbacks. Now I could see situations where I'd love to have one of the others, but I'm not in those situations often enough to warrant either one. On the plus side, I can also run 50-60 mph on hard pack, and it doesn't rattle every bolt loose.

As far as fast trail riding, not so much. They're not BAD, they do decent. But they're definitely not a Bighorn, or Terracross. Then again, this is a case of "you should know that".

I say, if you're a mud/water rider that also sees a decent amount of trail time, you can't really go wrong with the Mega Mayhems.

I just saw this thread and have to throw my vote in on the Silverbacks. Our group has had a mixture of just about every popular tire out there and in my experience I've grown to love the silverback over the others.

We would put two bikes in a hole one with backs one with og laws, they were both 28's on a 2" lift. Most of the time if one bike went in and got stuck the other one was going to do the exact same thing.. The difference was that the atv equipped with silverbacks could shift into reverse and back right out of the hole. The one with outlaws would have to fight and fight or get winched to get back out.

Backing up means you can turn and try a different line or just abandon the hole worst case!

Secondly the silverbacks will stay on the bead with 5 lbs of air in them which usually translates to a smoother ride. Outlaws on the other hand will spin in the tire or mud and water will get past the bead causing them to leak if you run them much less than 12psi.

All in all when it comes down to a pure mud tire gorilla will get my money instead of highlifter!

I wish that had been the case for the guys I rode with! We were constantly having to break them down to clean mud out of the bead because they wouldn't hold air anymore. We even overfilled them and let them sit in an effort to get the beads to properly set!

Like the title says, ultimate mud tire, I would have to say 32" backs. Pull harder, climb better and break more crap than any other tire I've owned. For all around mud, trail combo I'd go with 31" laws. Had them on 2 bikes and it is my tire of choice. They ride so smooth and the pull well in the mud, but they are terrible climbers. I just have to get rid of the 30" backs on my bike now and go back to 31's haha
