Default 2012 Brute Force Mud Riding Question??

What Tire should I get if I ride in muddy swamps 70 percent of the time. I am looking at zillas and bighorns. I like the zillas because I hear they do great in the mud and ok on the trail but they arent durable. I like the bighorns because they are extremely durable but arent great in the mud. Anyone else have any suggestions? Also does anyone know when moose utility is going to manufacture a brush guard for the 2012 bf 750?

go with the zillas, there lightweight, priced right, and they just plain work. as far as durability... i have over 700 miles of trail, mud, snow on mine...have yet to even have a flat! bighorns r a great tire for hardpack, snow, and rocks, they are to heavy, and the lugs arent spaced out enough that they will clean out good in the mud... imo.

I don't know where you got that the Zilla's aren't durable? I had around 1000km on mine when I sold them of hard mudding and rocky and treed trails. They still had lots of wear left and the only issue I ever had with them is I popped 1 front tire of the bead twice. Never any holes or any other issues with them.

Breaking the bead is just having the tire pop off the rim... The bead is the ring of the tire that connects to the rim.

You hould be able to go to a tire repair shop and get that sidewall puncture "vulcanized"...
It's where they take a bit more rubber and burn it into the area damaged.

If you ride MUD/SWAMP 70% of the time then you want a real mud tire, SilverBacks; MudZilla's; or OutLaw's... Your majority of rising is mudding so you should be looking at a more aggressive tire that rides smoother.

If you break a tire bead out in the swamps, carry a ratchet or some kind of tie down strap and wrap it around the entire perimiter of the tire in the center. Tighten it just enough so that it forces the side wals out towards the rim. Put your compressor on the tire and begin pumping in air. Around 30 Psi it should snap the bead back on. Adjust your tire to the correct pressure and keep riding.

Ride straight back to yor truck/trailer, lol any water in tire makes for a real good weight inside your tire. You'll need to get it out but at least you CAN make it back to your truck/trailer with 17A's advice
