i always say,if yer gonna go up in tire size,it should always be at least 2" overall that way you will gain 1" of overall ground clearance...if yer not gaining at least 1",why bother

the only other reason i could see only going up 1" in tire size is if you want a wider tire and it's not offered in the oem heights (there are a few tires that in the 25" height do not come in 11 or 12" widths)

No to mention that not all tires actually measure what they say.

its too bad for us SRA guys that a lot of the tires are going to a skinnier rear width, obviously to save weight, but i want WIDE, FLOATY MEATS for the rear, save the light weight and excelent road manners for the front!

I'd do the Zillas between the two but help us understand why you want a more mud tire when you clearly ride other stuff? Seems like you would like Terracross, Dirt Commanders or XTRs better.

i will take a look thanx but i found executioners 26-10-12 and 26-12-12 on Torx rims for 520.00 delivered and thats kinda hard to beat
mainly the ice and snow is for the reason behind me wanting that type and of course the price ill prob never see that good a deal again

I know I was one of the guys that really supports the Executioners in your other thread but you never mentioned that you "rarely" hit any mud...For the conditions you are describing here I would say that Bighorns are your best bet...If it is between the Executioners or Zillas than easily the Zillas...They are lighter and ride smoother...Executioners are more of a mud before trail and Zillas are more trail before mud
