Longest lasting tire

I just bought an 07 450se with a ste of new 26" mudlites. I am a little weary of these as a lot of my riding is on the gravel and paved roads between farms. Will the mudlites hold up well, or is there another tire that I should look into for a longer wear life.

They didn't work for me. After 300 miles they were 80% gone.

Big Horns standard ( not the 2.0's) That's what I did on everyone's advice and I have around 2500 miles on rocky nasty sharp stuff and gravel. They are amazing.

The Absoulute longest lasting tire would be a BFG All terrain or any other car tire, But Mud Performance Leaves alot to be desired with these tires, The Best all around would be the Bighorn, or the New Bajacross.

Bought my 27" Mudlite XLs in December and have about 1,100 miles on them now... I have about 25 plugs between the 4 of them and need to add air every other day... Lots of depth left on the lugs but the carcases and sidewalls are shot... Lots of pinch punctures. It's amazing how the Mudlites dig and throw mud right around my full windshield...

My 27" OG Bighorns are scheduled to arrive on Wednesday...

We had some solid rubber tires for a Bobcat loader once- that would wear forever & never go flat. Probably jar your eye teeth out though!

'cept BFG doesn't make the 27" tires anymore. General makes a copy in 27", but requires the 14" wheel.

jmemmert,

If you are on a budget like me (married) and do alot of riding on paved or gravel roads this just might help you. Locate some 13" or 14"" automotive wheels from an older geo metro, ford escort or nissan sentra. The bolt pattern is a 4x110 and can be found in any junk yard or tire salvage. Then purchase a set of winter tread tires from your local dealer. This can be done for under $200 and they will last forever. Then if you want to hit the mud for the weekend just change out your treads for the mudlites, it only takes 20 minutes. This way both sets of wheels and tires last a long time.
