FWIW, I put a set of OEM size Mudlite ATs on a old 99 foreman 400 a few years ago and they were shot after about a year and a half. I only put about 800 trail miles on them and I couldn't believe how quickly they wore down to nothing. Had to slime both front tires too. Other ITP tires have served me much better but I'd never buy the at's again.

I looked up new-to-me Pit Bull Growlers. They jump with tough tread looks! I will say if a person buys the made in USA version instead of PRC, be prepared for an IMF loan. Hey, we gets what we pays for!

Mud Zilla's and Zilla's are completely different tires. The MudZilla is still sold although not as popular as it once was.
Zilla should be sued , they copied the thread design and used 1/2 of the name

Mac , I thought you were wrong but had to go and find out for myself = Maxxis makes both the Mudzilla and the Zilla , looks to me judging by the price and the tire pattern , it is much like Swamp Lites and Mud Lites , same tire , one more aggressive

@fishfiles The Swamp Lite and Mud Lite are pretty different in design. But it's kind of like the Meyhem vs. Mega Meyhem, or Mud Lite AT vs. XL or XXL, or Silverback vs. Silverback X-Lite....

The Mudzilla's came first, and were around a long time before the Zilla hit the market. I think it was around 2007-2008 maybe. The Zilla was kind of designed to replace the Mud Bug. Lighter, less agressive more trail friendly version of the MudZilla.

If your looking for tires I would strongly go with the STI Black Diamond Radial tires. Better handling and load compacity plus no flat spots from sitting. Another advantage is the tread stays on the ground no matter what.

1993 Honda 300

Seafoam "In every tank"

Mobil1 4T 10w-40 (great stuff)

Superwinch Terra 35/synthetic rope, !/4 inch plate winch mount.

AMS Swampfox front 23x8x11, GBC dirt devils 25x12x9 rear. Soon to be changed to 4x4 wheels rear and STI Black Diamonds all around

Diehard Gold lawn tractor battery in rear storage box.
