My dad has mud lites on his 1987 bigbear. I think they work pretty good in the snow and mud he has them on a steel wheel. Kinda ugly but they work. He also uses a plow in the winter. tires seem fine but I have never rode it on the road with those tires. They costed a little money so if it needs to do any regular riding we put the stock tires on it. Yes stock. they are worn but they r still there plus its 4x4 and it has a winch. Bought it from my grandfather with like 500 miles on it.

about ten people i know that had xtr's sliced the sidewall's on them. they have very soft sidewall's. if you want a great all around tire go with maxxis bighorn's. i have bighorn's now and love them
