Ive got to throw my vote in for my Swamplites.I have 26's they have not failed me yet.I went from 589's to these i wish i would have bought these first.They are a pretty soft 6 ply but do very well love them in trail conditions and you cant beat that deep tread.

I recently went with 26" swamplites on my 400 and they are great. They have never failed to clean out and even with 10" versus the prior 8" on the front they steer and handle much better than the factory rubber they replaced. Also, I have put 300 miles on them this hunting season and they have yet to show any wear at all.

I saw on one site that the Swamplites listed a 9" front but I have not found it again and forgot where I saw it, there was a part # with it but I didn't write it down. Does anyone have info if this is true or was a misprint? If these don't exist I was thinking about 10" all around. My buddys Mudlites 11" rears were wider than my stock 12" 's. Do the Swamplites run wide also?

Yes, the Swamplites have a "rimsaver" design, which works well

looks like the vote it 3 for mudlites / 5 for mudlites and 1 guying saying that both tires are great. this helps a little bit. i'll have to think on it a bit. i've got a few toy's to buy for the truck first. which is the real play toy. then i'll have to make a decision. i'll keep reading and see if i can figure it out. it sounds like i'll be happy either way i go.

Get swamplites. There better than mudlights. They do way better in the mud and you will have more ground clearance than the mudlights because they measure bigger. Clean out pretty good to....
