Guys pretty frustrated with these tires and not sure what approach to take now? I keep getting flats on them and to my surprise when taken to the tire guy here he sent me a pic of the inside of the tire to show me why, I am not the original purchaser and they are over two years old, but come on it hasn't started being a problem till now, so what if it is over two yrs, they weren't manufactured properly to begin with.
From ITP:

"
We have a warranty to the original purchaser of our tires that lasts for 2 years from the date they purchase the tires
These tires were made in 2006 well beyond that period of time.

Sorry,

Richard Mendenhall"


Guess I am out of luck.

ITP Mud Lites are the worst "general purpose tire" on the market. They are a mud tire, suck on slippery hill sides and ride like a tractor. Mud Lite XTR's on the other hand are a radial, and smooth riding. They have a smaller paddle in between the lugs to assist on those slippery side hills, but are still a Mud tire mostly. The Ol Lady has a set (since new on her 03 Rancher) they leak terribly so I put tubes inside. I would recommend a different tire altogether but your the one who knows how and where you ride, so research will be your friend for a while as you investigate the vast offerings out there for ATV tires.

I had mudlite tires for about six months on my Rincon and got rid of them and put on bighorns, the best thing I ever did.

May I suggest and recommend Bighorns also. They aren't 'mud' tires, but they are one of the best, longest lasting, best handling, most durable atv tires made. Rincons love Bighorns.!

Mudlites are such a false advertisement they should not have mud in the name. A Maxxis Zilla is am all around better tire!

I run mudlites on my son's trx90 and I have to air them up everytime we go out. They're good on something light but not the best tire for a rincon. the big horns and big horn 2's are hard to beat.

I have Mudlite XL's on my Rincon. I love them up here in Alaska. I have never had any flats or any trouble with traction.

X 2, never had a flat or any problems with them. Got them within 100 miles of ATV being new and have 5000 miles on them now.

I put 3000 miles on a set of Mudlite XLs and the only flat I had was when I hit a rock and squared off a rim. I rode 15 miles back to the truck on the flat, hammered the rim and added air. I sold them and put on Swamplites. The Swamplites are gone, but my buddy is still running the Mudlites. He's gone another 1500 miles. I loved them and should have kept them.

I guess when it comes to mudlites they aren't for everyone.I really appreciate that they are American made.

They do great on the 90 and i'm only keeping 1 to 2 lbs of air in them. that might be part of the reason they're leaking down.

I bought my 2012 with itp wheels and 26" mudlites. They have all cracked and leaked since then. I am runnig three with slime and one has a tube. ITP replaced all four for free, but I will not put them on my Rincon. I will wear out the ones that I have, then I am gonna try some bighorns.

My son is currently sporting the replacement mudlites on his '05 350 Rancher with no trouble, but they have only been on there a couple of months.

For my riding style the mudlites are a bit rough. I can't wait to get my hands on some bighorns. I have some questions about them and tire size in general that I will start a new post about.:cool:

You will love the Big Horns.... perhaps a heads up for your son. My wife has the Rancher, Mud lite combo. Running about 3.5PSI in all 4. We had to replace the fronts with a terra cross style tread because in heavy ruts etc, the ruts would grab and pull the front wheels, sometimes violently. If I was not behind her that day I would still not believe it, but I saw the handle bars get ripped out of her hands, her quad turned sharp right and dumped her on her head :eek: right there in front of me at about 15 MPH. PS 25" big horn original, over the 2.0 would be an awesome choice.
