I recently installed a set of the Mud Lite XTR's before a trip to Royle Blue in TN. I was very impressed with the traction, handling, and ride with these tires. I highly recommend these tires for all types of riding including mud, snow, trail, rocks. The only draw back is the price....a set will cost you $600 +. These are 6 ply tires which provide for the better handling, wear, and puncture resistance. I did order them an inch taller and an inch wider than stock without any suspension changes.
