STI tires are great tires. Too often overlooked or just lost in a sea of offerings.
The Black Diamonds are excellent all around performers, with a decent wear rate. In dry conditions they are outperformed by the Maxxis Bighorn...But in wet conditions they perform better than Bighorns.

The Outbacks are mud tires, and perform great in those conditions. They have a flat (square) profile, which equals to better traction, longer wear and smoother ride.
While they are easily outperformed in mud by an Outlaw, they offer a better ride and better trail performance than Outlaws as well. Best way to describe them is a trail friendly mud tire.

I personally would love a set of Outbacks.

My brother has the Black Diamond radials in 27's on his Grizzly and they do great for the type of trails we ride...tight , rocky , and some mud.

I had black diamond xtr's on my old honda rubicon. They are great tires. Lateral traction is amazing and the ride is super smooth. I ran mine at 3 pounds and never had a problem. Traction is good everywhere. In the deep snow i had a few problems. I'd rate them way up there for the price. I have growler 2.5's and they are better performers, but they are super heavy. When i say a better performer, it would be in snow. In most other stuff they are close.
