which tire of these?

Looking for tires to buy for a 500 foreman 4x4 ES narrowed down to these.

Zillas
Mud lights
Bear Claws
Mud Bugs

I drive desert roads, trails, dsert rock, sand washes also Rocky mountain stuff(no snow if I can help it) I mostly putt but do like to get it on a few times a ride.

Which would you think was best for me ?

I would think something like Pitbull Growlers, Big Horns, Blackwater Evo’s or similar would be much better suited than any of the tires you listed.

My theory on tire choice is , talk with people in your area , soil conditions are different across the nation, what works well in one area doesn't work well in others

Yep, with the terrain you're in, I wouldn't get any of those you listed. They're mud tires.
