Hey guys just bought a 17 700 se grizzly. So far I did the barker dual exhaust end intake filter and controller and warn winch. Next on my list is 1.5 shim for clutch tires and plow


I'm looking at the itp( mud lite xl) 28-10-12 front and 28 -12 -12 rears or

A itp mega mayhem 28-9-12 front 28-11-12 rear . I was going to use factory wheels but i will change them if i have to. I see that most of the itp tires that are 28 only measure in at 27 in with lower psi.

I ride trails snow some mud / light sand I would like to have your opinions thanks in advance rob

I wouldn't go with the pluglites, but that's just me. I had the mayhems and where a pretty good tire. Great in deep mud, not sure on sand. Prolly dig pretty quickly. Trails they liked to slide if hardpacked. I had more than a few oh shit moments. If you want a great tire that is great in about every terrain, look into pitbull growlers. By far the best tire Ive owned.

After reading I think I'm gonna pass on the mud lites. Few people around me have the mega mayhem s and they do mainly trait and mud and say if you drop the pressure down then ride fine down low. I'm gonna look into the pitbull growers now how do they measure compared to there size. I see most 28s when down in tire pressure only measure in it 27

I've got a 2017 grizzly 700es and am in the market myself. Been looking at the tire weight when looking to buy. Plus actual tire size, cause some tire sizes are deceiving. I have the ehs , exhaust tip and airbox upgrade. Let me know the before and after feel and performance with the shim mod. Don't think I'm going with pipe because of the noise.

It looks like the pit bulls have a 27-9 and a 27-11 wondering what the actual sizes mounted with four and a half pounds or so with air. The Barker duals are loud for sure it has plenty of low-end grunt and I'm sure it would be fine with a bigger tire without the clutch shim and springs but ill do it all at once. The factory tires are pretty bad my girls foreman rubicon 500 will get through more stuff than I will with a factory tire.

Pit Bull tires are some of the best tires on the market. Performance and quality are top notch....but they come at a price. That's to bte expected....you pay a premium price for a premium product. I only mention this if you are under a budget.

If your looking into the Mayhem's, also take a look at Maxxis Zilla's. They have a very similar tread pattern, but weigh much less. Less weight means they are easier to turn and are easier on axles and suspension parts. The Mayhem's do have a slightly deeper tread depth.

In reality, you have a plethora of tires to choose from. We have never seen the tire market so full of products and choices as we have now. It's a wonderful time.

For stated vs actual tire heights....well, there is so much that effects tire height. Tire pressure, wheel width, how someone actually measures, etc. One might get a completely different measurement from another.

I think they measure close to size. I have the HTRs and they are the same size, but can't remember how much air pressure I use. Check evilbay, discount tire has a sale on the tires, I picked up mine for $400 shipped to my door. 26s on 14" rims. They are on the heavier side, but I had them on my 1000 renegade, and never noticed any power loss. If they go on sale around tax time, I'll prolly get a set for the grizz....

I think I like the pit bulls the most .I'm gonna stay with a factory rim . I dont go that crazy in the mud so I think this tire will fit my needs being they are heavy I'll make sure to do shim and spring wile I get the tires I'll start shopping around now.

The Pit Bull Growler XOR BG 2.5 is a solid choice for an all-around aggressive tire. I have a couple of sets of them on my Brute Force 750 and loved them. When I first got them I measured them prior to installing them on my quad and they measured true to height if not slightly over.

They ride smooth and deliver very predictable traction.



Here is a link to them on our web-site:
