if you are hunting a good trail and mud tire, consider the highlifter radial outlaws. i have had these tires for a while and swear by them. even if you ride 50-50 trail-mud or slight mud riding it is a great tire. these tires dont pull to ruts like my old 589mt's did. with the foot print the tire has i was surprised that i could fell comfortable running 55mph down the trail and still be able to sling it sideways around a curve, or run 65 on hardpack or pavement and be smooth as glass. the also have no bumpyness at low speeds. these tires are also wonderful for rock riding also, i was suprise how well they gripped in wet rocky riding. they are worth checking out before you buy tires.

I bought a set when I had my Rubicon, and I think they sucked, went thru 2 complete sets and both sets had out of round ones, could not go over 35 with severe shaking, and they were very very heavy. On a lighter note, HL did right by me by allowing me to return the tires/wheels for a complete refund,they will continue to get my business. I have read several dozen good posts on them, they are just not for me.

jeff--you are correct, HL did have problems with titan tire co. they were making the tire with no radial equipment. which in result, which was not highlifter fault, was making out of round. highlifter stepped up to the plate by-one taking care of the cutomers, two, by moving the mold and getting it right.
my first set was the same, would rattle your teeth out. got my second set and they are smoooooooooooth as he!!. and by the way i do know for a fact the new radials will weigh 4-5lbs lighter than the old ones. it will still be several weeks before there are ready to ship but the testing is going good. i dont know about the wheeler you had, but one my rinny i cant tell a difference power wise because of them being heaver, they fill just like my 589's did.

and jeff your last comment on "Mud Riding isnt ectreme!", you are totally correct. although my name is Mudcon, my love is more of riding and exploring new sights. i am going to the fall ride at windrock/coal mountain tenn and cant wait. it has the kind of riding you do.

later

Mudcon,
I enjoy exploring also, really love nasty long hill climbs, LOTS OF FUN. I was born and raised in East Texas so I know the mud thing but got sick of it with no where to ride and riding the same crappy holes over and over and over, but moved here and started riding again, with thousands of miles of trails and millions of acres of public land I simply could not resist. I thought I knew how to ride until I rolled a brand spanking new (less than 10 miles on it) Rubicon down a hill and found out differently. It defiantly is different than just mudding!

The Radial Laws are a very smooth ride for a tire that it that aggressive. I love the tire over all and the only down side to them is that they seem to be prone to punctures (two on the first two rides) both on the sidewall. I had Titan 589 MTs for over 5000 miles on my Rubicon without a puncture.

Can I give a list off all tire I am concidering and yall give me your input and experiences?

1.)Mudlites (26")
2.)Radial Outlaw (26")
3.)Titan 589 (26")
4.)ITP Holeshot (26")

I do mud ride but look towards ride comfort and gripping ability on rocks a great deal! My wife has a bad back so ride comfort is my most appeling thing. This is why i sold my Rubicon with 27" 589 titan's. They were AWESOME but jarred her back to DEATH!

Thanks!
