Tire & Winch help

So i took out the grizzly 700 for the first time last weekend up here in northern Ontario, it did great ! went through mud holes over the racks and climbed steep rock hills and road trail comfortably all with the stock Maxxis tires, a few times tho I was wishing I had better tires or a winch, which ive planned on getting anyways, I use to have the GBC gators but pretty sure they don't make them anymore so I'm really leaning to a set of MudBugs from Maxxis never road them before but know some guys that swear by them, any opinions on them or another tire similar swamp foxes maybe? not looking for something too aggressive that i can't ride on the road, and also any winch recommendations? thanks for reading! cheers

Winch wise I am running a Superwinch Terra35 and been happy with that. I have a few friends running KFI winches and are happy with theirs as well. The big thing for me is go with a synthetic line winch, 100% worth it.

Depending on what surface you ride on the most I would be a little leery of the MudBugs lasting long if you ride much hardpack trail, gravel and roads. But yes most nay tire is generally a step up from the factory ones, I run Growlers that are beefy but pretty heavy, have several friends running Bearclaw HTR's,Zilla's, Black Diamond's, OG Bighorn's and Bighorn 3.0's that they are all happy with. I think a little more information about the places you ride might allow us to make some better recommendations.

Winches I don't guess you can go to wrong with. I've had a Smittybilt 3000lbs (Big Bear 400), Warn 3000( Outlander XT1000-crapped out after a few months), Polaris 2500(RZR XP1000) and Superwinch 3500lbs (Grizzly 700). They all seemed to work pretty good. To be fair to the Warn winch I do ride in the mud, the only trail I see is to the next hole or when I load my bike up. Now with that being said synthetic rope is a must!!! I would say check out Amazon, you can usually find good deals on Superwinch. You don't need a real big winch, but I say get the biggest you can fit.

Tire wise...I mud so I look for really aggressive tires, TERMS. It really all depends on how you ride. If you did as good as you say with stockers then stay along the lines of that and look at the tires SavageGrizzly said. Maybe look at some Grim Reapers, Blackwaters or Xtr's if you want something that is a little more dedicated to mud. I've had Mega Mayhems and Xtr's. Both seem to do well in the mud and rode great on hard packed in my opinion. Some people complain about the Xtr's and how they puncture. I had them on 12 inch rims and never had issues.

If you are looking for something more aggressive than what I listed above, but still halfway decent on the trail I have heard good reviews on the ITP Cryptid's and the STI Out & Back Max.

I live for mud and my terms are great in the mud, but they are 41 pounds a piece. Silverbacks are awesome in the mud. Both of those tires ride pretty smooth on hard packed ground, just wouldn't drive any mud tire too fast and definitely not around curves. I've got the outback max on my rzr and they are pretty good, I know they make a version of them that don't have as big of a lug and weigh a little less.

Iíve had many sets of grim reapers on various atvís and keep going back to them. Ride good, no flats, and they always get me places at least as far as anyone else, if not farther.

Use on rock trails, hard snow, and various mud. Just picked up a set of 26x9-12 for all four corners on my new grizzly. Havenít put them on yet but Iím glad I did 9 wide all around. They are wider than the original rear tires.

I've recently got the aforementioned and I like the way the grab the rocks, get through the mud, and travel nice on the road. Got the 26-12x9 on the front and 26-12x10 on the rear. Got them on Tusk Carlisle rims. I wanted to spare the originals. All said and done full package with air $700...yes they sent them with air in them right to the PSI!
