New to the forums but have already spent a good deal of time looking at other posts about tires, and what people suggest for different types of riders. I know my type of ride is rather similar to others but maybe it differs enough to spark different suggestions than the other posts.

07 BF 650. I mostly ride trails that are laden with sticks, logs and the likes but I created a trail the other day that allows me to cross a creek for a little added excitement. but in order to get to that trail, i have to drive on the road for a little bit, not long, only about 1/4 mile one way.

so i'm looking for something that would perform well on trails, especially ones with a lot of rocks for when i take my bike out to WV, but then also be able to cross creeks/shallow mud pits with no problems and not wear to quickly from being on the road rather often.

thank in advance for any and all suggestions.

btw, i am currently running on stock dunlops, don't remember the exact model of the tire as I just recently purchased my quad, but the tires on it have shown no signs of not being able to handle the aforementioned terrains.

also, it would be good for the suggested tires to hold their own in snow since MD has been being hit hard with snow in the past few years, and with that in mind, I plan to ride a lot when it snows again.

thx again

Bighorns for sure if mud is not your thing. but they excel on the trails and on rocky terain great treadwear also... As for snow ive use my bike to ice fish and plow here for the last 2 years. No complaints at all. I just find them poor in the mud.

hmm, thanks for the input. my search should be a lot easier now. I guess it comes down to pricing especially on tire and wheel packages at this point.

I was looking at the mudthrowers site yesterday for the first time and forgot to write down what the site was called. I agree, they do seem to have some pretty fair prices.

thanks

You should look at the MOTO MTC's if you like the Bighorn

I haven't found anything yet they don't do great in. Im not saying that they don't have their week point I just haven't found it yet the only reason im getting rid of mine is cause I want something taller and the MOTO MTC's in the 28's wont be out til spring but bet your butt I will have a set when they do. Again these are a great tire for about anything an awesome all terrain tire now granted they're not going to do like a Back or Law in the deep mud but I trail ride mostly and ride the creeks and they're great in the water and rocks and as long as the mud isn't butt deep they do great in mud too. They wear like iron I don't think you can wear them out.

ITP 589 M/S (Mud/Snow) FTW I do the same rideing here in Maine that you discribe. They last and last. Paved and dirt roads, mud, snow, trails, rocks, logs, everything. Since I got these (used with 80% tread left) I use 4x4 5 to 10% of the time now. As with stock tires 25 to 30%. Mostly cause I kept breaking traction. IMO you wouldn't be disapointed.

Outlaw MST's shake a bit, till you hit 50 then they plane out like the trim on a boat....floating down the trail....
