I have a 04 Polaris Sportsman 500HO and the tires are more plug than rubber. I want new rubber but they need to be good for both mud and snow.
Im leaning toward the MS589. Or the ITP Mudlite, All input will be great.:feedback:
I had the mudlites great all around tire a tuff question for me too which one.One thing I did notice is when you approach a hill with snow I needed a lot of wheel speed because the mudlites are diggers even with max air pressure. Stock tires I could get on top of the snow with more flotation. I beat these tires up on the rocks and never did have a flat pull the trigger on the mudlites IMO.
Im still not sure. I thought I would get alot more input on this situation. Thanks to the fellas who did chip in on the thread though. Im going with the ITP Mudlites. I think the 589's will be too agressive and tear up the yard.
ITP Mud Ltes are a good choice but also look at the ITP XTR and ITP Terracross. I have the Terracross and love them.
The 589s are the king of the mud hole but they are tough riding on the trail. I bought the Terracross and they work well in all terrain (sand, hard packed,and mud) - and I have heard they are a good snow tire - no snow in TX so no first hand info.
If I could, I would load up ALL the snow and bring it to ya! I hate the cold weather! Lived in southern Arizona for awhile but that was just TOO HOT! came back to Michigan, fell in love, married and been here ever since! shivering!!!:damnit:
Thanks for the heads up on the terracross tires, already purchased the Mudlites they are great so far.
