All I guess I can base my opinion on is seeing how my XTR's perform and wear versus other's that we ride with and the XTR's have "All Around" out performed the rest... Now we mostly trail ride with the occasional playing in the mud, so no one we ride with has Law's or Zilla's. I have over 3400 miles on my XTR's with AT LEAST 75% of the tread left... So I am pretty happy with them...

id agree the xtr is probably the best all-around tire made.
i like the bugs though as they do well everywhere but perform better in mud than a normal all-around tire would.

I've been running the STI Mudtrax. So far, I like them. Great on the trail, smooth ride, showing no signs of wear and pull and clean out good in the mud.

Any aggressive tread design is going to give you a bit of shake. Make mine Zillas!

ASR tie rods and ends. 2" lift kit, 30" Zilla rears all the way around on 14" ITP SS212 wheels. Viper Max MX4000# winch with black Amsteel synthetic cable.

I run kenda 27" exacutioner's. I like how they perform all around, but love them in the mud. Just wish they'd make them in 28's. But i've had since i got the my Brute and show very little wear. Thats fire roads, trails, mud, and some actual road time on them. I have yet to get a locust tree thorn to be able to puncture them...and we have alot of them around here. But no matter what, if you get any good mud tire...it's going to wabble or shake at high speeds. I've had mine up to 65 mph. It shook, but never felt unstable. I think one of our sponsor's (Mud -Throwers) has a tire called Innova "Mud Gear" and they look to be a good happy medium type of tire or the Kenda Bounty Hunters. Everybody rides different or rides in different places and likes different stuff, so it's going to come down with what you're looking for and what you want to get out of the tire. Hopefully with everyones input you'll be able to get something you like.

i was running mudlites before and really didn't care for them, now i bought swamplites and really like these tires. They hook up really good and crawl over downed trees and don't do to bad in the mud either, and you can't beat the price.

stay away from mudzilla's... they suck. Now, Zilla's are good, but not mudzilla's. There's a difference. For what we have here in bama, I dont think you will be happy with them.

swmap foxes are a real good all around tire . they do really well on dirt and hard pack. and still perform well in mud also the only negative is when in real thick stuff they clog.
