Wides front and rear work for me in the worst mud situstions. If you're not into top end and don't mind wrestling with the steering, wides are awsome.

08 Brute Force 750I, VDI Copperhead, HMF Swamp exhaust with custom snorks and radiator relocate. UNI air filter. Pink primary/ red secondary clutch springs and EPI weights. 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.

With clutching yeah you will. And yeah I'd just leave them on those rims I woudlnt worry with getting thiner ones, unless it just looks stupid. Besides, Why get 31 skinnys for the rear though? Who wants a 9" tire in the rear except racers? Just get 31x11 for the rear and you'll be fine.

Skinny in the front Wide in the back. Always the best solution the only time i need a winch is when its up to the racks. but thats just me. Also wides look so much better in my opinion.

When thinking of what tires I wanted between the backs and the Outlaw 2. A hard decision was made and I bought the 30" silverbacks. Then it was skinny, wides, skinny/wide combo. I live in Florida and do mostly swamp and mud riding I decided to go with all 30x11x14 wides, all the way around. I was concerned about the steering. But, by mistake the place I purchased them from instead of using the same 8x14 rim as rear they used the 6x14, which actually made the front tire not as wide. Its not as hard to steer as I thought it would be and with a 2" lift no rubbing at all. Night and day compared to the mudzillas. Just wanted to share some info. I will be getting the outlaw 2's next, possibly for the wifes KQ.
