It really depends on what your riding, up here in muskeg wide works fantastic...but half the ride you go through rutted up hard/soft bottom holes where extra ground clearance makes the difference. My bike on 31's makes it all look easy compared to buddy on 28 wides in these holes. Generally any conditions larger > wider..
In slop and mud, i watch people with heavy bikes do nothing but dig holes with tall skinny tires. At some point they bottom out regardless of how much ground clearance. The wide footprint just isnt there to give traction and help stay up
they may be, or so i thought. but they seem to still be offered by quit a few places. and i think they are still on the maxxis site. i ran into one guy that had them on his RZR, and swore by them. just depends who you talk to i guess. i still cant believe how well the reg zillas do in the nasty stuff. i would go far as to say that in my oppion, they have put a smile on my face , better than my last "true" mud tires, the Monsters. i mean they just get the job done. im not talking water riding, just nasty mud riding. so there i said it. Zilla's = stupid good tire for the nasty stuff. cheap too!
I have 28in mudzilla's on my 800 ranger and they do okay. not my first choice. I got them for 200 bucks and they only had two rides on them..i wont be buying them again..im looking at mudlite xxl's..i trail ride more than mud ride so that's y im thinking of Mudlites
