Yeah I'm not sure how long it's been since Maxxis stopped making the 24" and under Mud Bugs. Might be some old stock around somewhere. Myself I'd never run smaller than 25" tires.

I LOVE tires... Good choice Mac, nice write up..

Bikes look good... Makes me wanna gfo out and buyt a new Rubi today...lol.. I miss 4 wheels...

Mud lites are great for easy going around your property... I wouldn't buy a set to beat on or put 200km on in a day...

They are soft... Making them tear...

But... It makes them exceptionally great in the snow I have noticed... I give them an A+ for that...

After you and Toodeep convinced me to try the Mudbugs I have slowly been switching all of my bikes over to them. Not only that, but the guys I ride with have been doing the same.

I currently have 28's on my 06 Foreman, 27's on an 09 Foreman, and 26's on the wife's Rancher. One buddy has 27's on his Rubicon (removed 26" Outlaws and says he likes the Mudbugs MUCH more) and another has 26's on his 06 Foreman.

I might go with 28's on the 300 I am doing with a 54%, and want to do 26's on another 300 I am doing with an 18%.

I won't buy any other tire if I'm buying new.

Shadetree means well. But he doesn't really know what he's talking about when it comes to oversized tires. There is a big difference between bolting 25" Mud Bugs on a 420 and bolting 34.5" Outlaws but Shade seems to think they will cause the same kind of carnage.

That 350 Rancher has 15,500km on it, 7000km with stock tires and 8500km with the 26" Mud Bugs. I've replaced the front wheel bearings once, it needs ball joints and tie rod ends currently as well as the left side rear wheel bearing, none of those have ever been touched since it was new. It's never broken an axle, and diff parts, nothing. If going to 1-2" oversize tires hurts the machine as bad as Shadetree makes out that it does, shouldn't I have had much more trouble than that? I'm not try to bash Shade in any way, I'm just sharing my experience. There is a point where the tires are too big, too heavy and stuff will start to break and wear faster for sure. But 1" oversize isn't it no matter what machine lol

I wouldn't steer you wrong, the Mud Bugs are one of the best out there. I've said it before, they will take you 90% of the places Outlaws or any of the other pure mud tires will take you. I just wish they would make them in larger sizes, I think the market is there. 32" for 14's with the same wide lugs of the 25/26" bugs would be awesome for my Renegade.

Yeah, that's the only thing I don't like about the 27's and 28's is the closer spaced lugs.

Basfnb rode one if my rigs one day with the 27" Bugs and as soon as we got home he ordered a set. Said they pulled about as well as his (admittedly somewhat worn) 26" Outlaws and rode 1000x's better.

Yeah Iíve never ran the smaller Outlaws only 29.5ís and 31ís. The Mud Bugs definitely ride better and last longer. I donít know if the 25-26Ē Outlaws were as good in the mud as the 27+ it didnít seem like they were ever very popular.

How true to size are the bigger outlaws? Don't they run small?

I'm going to have a 54% in a 300 and I'm torn between going with something like a 29.5 Outlaw or running more 28" Mudbugs, or maybe 30" Zillas. I trail ride more than mud, so figured I would swap these 28's on when I get the machine ready and see how it does.

But I had a set of 29.5 Outlaws pop up that were cheap. I ended up passing on them due to the distance involved, but almost pulled the trigger on them.
