Best dirt/rock hill climbing and mud tire

In yalls opinion what is the best tire out there 28" and up for climbing rocky/dirt hills and mud as well. If there is such a tire out there designed well for both I'm interested.

I have a 2012 rzr xp le suspension is stock but thinking about a 2-3" lift.

Thanks,
Nathan

Re: Best dirt/rock hill climbing and mud tire

I have 27" BH on my 11-s,they Measure 28 1/4 at 12psi.
They work great climbing rocky/dirt hills,only seen mud 1 time and they worked good,don't see much mud here in AZ
They last a long time,i had them on my 09 ranger xp 700 put on over 4000 miles,and now(same set of tires) i have them on my rzr and have around 1000 miles,over 5000 miles total.And they still look like they will go another 10.000This is what they look like now.

If I decided to go with the 29.5" would I need a lift on my xp I don't want to sacrifice my ride by screwing the shocks down. I want to keep my shocks around factory setting.

Thanks again fellas,

Re: Best dirt/rock hill climbing and mud tire

Although not 28" and above, you hadn't ought to discount the PitBull Rockers.

I've had my PitBulls in about every scenario out there (except the dunes) and they are nothing short of incredible.

Re: Best dirt/rock hill climbing and mud tire

We would agree with the PitBull tire. They are very aggressive but they ride very smooth. The PitBull tires run about 1/2 inch larger than the size designates.

Let us know if we can be of assistance.

28x14 Outlaw Radials. They work great every place you want to go, and wear very good. The Big Horns are also a hi mileage tire, but they look like a big donut when in the mud. They cake up and won't clean out. Then after you get out of the mud they will throw hand gernades for a long ways!!!

thats a really good point of the pitbulls, both the growlers and the rockers, both clean out amazingly fast and if your in mud and they fill up just hit the gas once and they are clean.

Check out the black diamond tires by STI. I have been happy with them. They are a 27" tire though.

Your Teryx4 looks nice!

I love Big Horns when they're brand new, but once the knobs start to round off they're not idea for the really steep muddy hill climbs without a good driver behind the steering wheel in my opinion.

Re: Best dirt/rock hill climbing and mud tire

well if you are going to do a 2-3" lift on a xp, i would do like a 29" tire.. terms are sick. does pitbull make a 28.5.. that would be nice too.. a xp with a 2-3" lift on 27s i think would look funny
