I have a 94 xplorer 400 4x4 with 12 wide on the back yet my 05 sportsman 800 has only 10 wide on the back , given that the 800 weighs nearly twice as much wouldn`t wider tires be better. I will be riding on montain trails, this will give me dry dirt at lower elavations, mud then snow as I climb. I just bought these quads and haven`t even ridden them yet,(there`s 3 feet of snow on the ground and its -4f ) they both need work, I`m relatively new to the sport, last trip to the mountains I rode my 88 trailboss 250 4x2. This trip made me realize that 4x4 is the way to go for me. So my question is when I buy new tires for my 800 should I go wider and how much front, how much back. I`m not a wild man on the trail but I don`t want to be suck in the mud and snow all the time. From what I`ve read here and seen at atv outfitters, the ITP Mud Lites XL`s look like good value for money. Thanks in advance for your advise.
