Tires were shipped lightning fast, I had them installed locally, and that is some mean rubber. The ONLY downside that I see is those huge cleats will beat you silly on hard packed soil or pavement....but then again, that's not what they were designed for, is it?
Gorilla ATV Silverback Mud Tire

- The Gorilla Silverback ATV Mud Tire is easy to describe. It's simply the most aggressive ATV tire in the world. There is NO other tire on the market that compares to the size, tread, sidewall wrap, design, cleaning properties, and sheer "BADNESS" of the Silverback.
- The Gorilla Silverbacks come in sizes ranging from 27" to a FULL 32" MONSTER!
- Silverback tread depths are:
27" - 1.5" 28" - 1.75" 30" - 2" 32" - 2.5"
- Silverbacks have a 6-ply rating and can withstand all the abuse that you want to throw at them. The Silverback lug wraps ALL THE WAY to the bead on both sides and allows you to get traction in ruts when ALL other tires just leave you hanging.
- The great tire designers in the sky really did it right when they designed the most intriquite design known to man. And then called it Silverback. The biggest, baddest Gorilla of them ALL!
Fast shipping and got here a day early! Better than expected great tires! Can go where can ams can go with 30 inch outlaws. Best tire out there recommend for serious mudder's.
I purchased this tire in 30x9x14 and so far I am absolutely thrilled. I have about 300 miles on them so far and I haven't found any situation where I've been disappointed with them on my grizzly 700. They don't seem to rob power, they do fine in sugar sand and on hard dirt roads. Deep dry or stickey mud is no problem either. I ride way more then the avarage rider, 500 plus miles a month so I am interested to see how they wear. So far they are fantastic and I would buy them again.
When it comes to mud tires, these are easily the best on the market. I've have them on my XMR for about 2 years now and I love them. The traction in the mud is outstanding, and the lugs clean out with ease even in thick clay. My only complaint would be the obvious: These tires are only good in the mud, they do not get much of any traction on slippery surfaces, trails, or pavement. They also wear down fast on the trails. Otherwise these tires are well worth the money if you like playing in the mud!
Running 28x12x12s on my grizzly 700 and they're by far the best tire I've had on any of my quads. and they last a while too. I've had them for almost a year and am just starting to see wear now and i ride a few times a month
I was very happy with the silverbacks at mud nationals. These things keep you moving and they do not require a lot of throttle to keep them clean.
Heavy rough riding on packed down surfaces but overall a pretty good tire much better for mud than trails
The tires have been great so far. Theybetter be for the price. Just watch out for the backorder, i ordered sep. 21 and received my last tire oct. 17. But the backorder said ships in one week.
These tires are amazing i put 28X10X12 all the way around my suzuki 700 king quad and they never back down from anything they will pull you through sand clay mud and let you water wheelie very nicely lol. I love the performance of these tires when this set wears out i will definitely be buying another set they are unbelieveable.
These tires are beyond great i put a set on my suzuki 700 kingquad and it made my four wheeler unstoppable. They just keep digging through clay sand and even are fun to water wheelie with lol. I loved them so much i gave my set of 27s to my dad and bought a set of 28s and with them i can go even more places than other bikes with 32in outlaws. I will be buying another set after these wear down.
There are a few keys things to consider when choosing a larger tire size for your UTV/ATV.
Larger tires may void your manufacturer's warranty.
Larger tires may cause a loss of bottom end power, due to higher gearing and increased rotating mass (weight of tires).
Larger tires cause more stress on drive train and suspension components.
Larger tires will raise the center of gravity (CG) of your machine.
You should be able to increase your tire size 1" over stock with out any issues. Any larger you would need to think about modifications.
