Wide tires are alot heavier too... And are hard to get turning.

Wider tires aren't really that much heavier. On most brands.

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

The weight difference will not gain you any performance. Unless you ride areas that have good hard bottoms under the mud, then all skinnys is a horrible idea.

Now. Y'all quit boogering up this thread w/ skinny vs wide talk and use the skinny vs wide thread for that discussion. That's what it's for.

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!

Mud-lites are not mud tires. I'm sorry, they just aren't. More like an all terrain.
