Rancher 420 w/26" Grim Reapers

What do you guys think about the Grim Reaper tires? Got a guy around my area with 14" ITP SS212's and 26" Grim Reapers with around 10 hours on them for $600. Are these too heavy and big for my four wheeler? I was looking at 25" ITP Mud Lites with 12" SS212's but saw these for sale for a cheaper price.

First off 600bux is high for used tires,and wheels..400 is closer to reality these days if they're in really excellent condition...You could run them,but they're going to cut your usable power down due to overall gearing,plus the added weight of the 14"wheels,and tires....

I thought 600 sounded high....I wonder what the set cost new. I can get the 12" SS212's and 25" mud lites for 660.

always look up the absolute best deal I can find on a certain set of wheels,and tires..take the cheapest price,cut it in half for less than perfect new used tires...If they're perfect,and I like them I'll usually go up to 60-70% tops...If they have quite a few miles,and show medium,to heavy usage,and the wheels don't look like they're not too old I'll go under half price at best...Offer them 300,and work upwards from there if need be,and you really like them a lot,but stay under 400 for them ...

I wouldn't get Mudlites AT's anyway. They are a low tread depth and a soft rubber compound. You are better of getting the Mudlite XL's or the Maxxis Zillas if you want a semi-light mud/trail tire. Neither of these types of tires are good for road riding, so I'd stay clear if then if you want them to last. I ride a decent amount of dirt roads in my area, so I try to use my Mudlite tires for winter times and the muddy seasons. I use a heavier duty radial tire in the Maxxis Bighorns for the dry season.

Well I went ahead and got the set. They were in great condition, just needed a little TLC. The guy had not washed them since he got them in July. I'm pleased with them so far. I think what sold me was that they were a 8 ply radial tire where the mudlites are not radials and only 6 ply. I would wrather lose a couple ponies than have numerous flats. Giving up the weight advanatage for durability.
