I think its a matter of opinion. The skinnies seem to go to the bottom faster if you're in deep boggy mud. Does the creek have a sandy, muddy, or gravel bottom? Out here where I ride at I like my wides better than skinnies that I used to run. The skinnies would dig into the sandy bottom and I'd end up stuck in a water wheelie. Mostly when coming out of the water channels. Its a P.I.T.A. to have to lock into 4wd and let the front end down and get off and push! I never worry about it with the wides. NOW>>>in the same scenario...I noticed that riding in the buddy pit out at Mud Creek, the guys with skinnies on the rear moved quicker across the pit than I did....my bike just kept standing straight up, guess the skinnies cut the sludge better and kept moving forward. So like I said, depends on what kind of bottom. Also, keep in mind that the wides hold a larger volume of air, so the rear end is more likely to try and come up if you have wides. I dont worry about it due to my width and the rake on the rear arms that I get from the Catvos.

You live in central mississippi, I've actually ridden at all the parks around there (since 2000)... So I know where you ride and what it's like there. You want wides rear skinny's front. You don't want skinnys on the back in some of those nasty soft places that Rocks and CCC and T-Lane provide.

Creek=silt and sand. Wides in the rear do better because they don't dig as much as skinnies do.

Dont get the wrong idea about wide rears from what I said above....something to keep in mind is that I was running across the pit in 2wd and the other bikes were in 4wd.... that was probably part of the reason why they moved quicker. I say buy what YOU want, not what we want lol. I like the look of the wides on the rear, and I do think they pull quite a bit harder than the skinnies due to the extra amount of rubber.

Like filthy said above, get what You want... I personally have skinny silverbacks on my brute, and love how they pull... I have been to CCC and no problems... It's not just where/what you ride, but also your riding style... I personally am stuck on skinnies... I know people who swear by skinny/wide and people who use wides..
