What are your riding areas like? Creeks, trails, all mud, water, deep mud w/ no bottom, mostly ruts? Or just wherever & whatever is in front of you? ;) lol

hmm.. I think something less agressive would be better then. 589's, Bugs, Zilla's, MST's, MudLite XL (is it XL or XLT?) The swamp fox is a pretty cool tire to that often looked over.

I agree with Jon, a less agressive tire would be best for you.
And also have to agree with the swamp fox also, had 'em in 28s, really liked them on the trails and did fairly well in the mud. They do tend to dig a bit, run an inch short and mine also had a wobble to them but only noticed on the road!

my 31's are a plush ride :)

You should get some zillas. Maxxis makes some LIGHT tires. You can ride about anywhere on those bad boys.
Another good tire that is overlooked it the MudGear by Innova. It's a cheap but sorta heavy tire. I was impressed seeing how they performed in mud. If you got the wheel speed to keep em clean, they do work. Trail riding was pretty good too. Climbing ability was on par with similar class tires.

i think the 27/12 vamps with the 28/8 mudzilla's maybe better riding,we will see,i might just leave the sbacks in the trailer and use for mud only.i got a set of edls also though,gonna have to sale something shop is full of 28 inchers

i feel like you shouldnt even think about running the silverbacks, since you have other options, and since you plan on riding hills.

well the vamp /mudzilla combo is very nice,alot smoother and should take me anywhere i need to go.if not i always got the edls or back to put on,unless somebody wants to buy the backs.actually the vamp combo is a little taller.
