zillas are great, i run 28" wides all four corners. for an agressive tire they ride smooth, turn easy. light weight makes them easy to turn in the mud

Pitbull Tires

Pitbull Tires carries growlers or rockers that have been proven in the mud and on the trails.I can say these are the best 8 ply UTV tires in the market.

Tons of traction and bark behind pitbull tires.

titan 589 .......it is a very over looked tire. i have been running these tires sense 04 and i have 0 bad things to say about em. i am running 4 - 28x11x12s i first had em on my grizzly and now they are on my rhino i have somewhere around 1500 miles on em and they still have plenty of life left. they have the best rim guard i have every seen on a atv tire. another nice thing about em is with 0 air in the tire it will still support the weight of the rhino so if you get a flat you are not stranded. traction is geat in everything except sand they dig a bit too much. and you should know they do run small my 28s measure out about 27. when its time to replace them i will be ordering the same ones again. you should also know there are 2 different 589 tires out there. the 589s i am talking about have the rim guard and tread sipes the other 589s have neither. the links at the bottom are for the correct tire..

No pics,but measuring from the floor up I am measuring 25 5/8,and I have had them on a little over a year. So I would guess just a little short of 26 new.Also I have a 2" CFM lift for ground clearance more than anything.No engine or clutch mods and I haven't seem to have lost anything power or speed wise.
