These Mudzilla tires are very aggressive in the mud. With the lug pattern being in the shape and design as in the picture, they will not make for a comfortable ride on say, a gravel road, If thats what you mean about wanting "decent ride outta tires". They will hook up very well in deep mud. If you are looking for a tire that offers a smoother ride, other than mud, I would consider something less aggressive, such as the Maxxis Big Horn. These will give you a very smooth ride for a number of reasons. They are radial for one, and the lugs are distributed in a way to make them more versitable in all types of condition.
Your stock tire size should be 26x8x12 fronts and 26x11x12 rear. I wouldn't recommend going any taller than 26". If you do decide to go larger, than you will more than likely have to get some type of lift kit to get the clearance needed.
