What is a good tire for my Foreman?

I have a 02 Foreman and I am in need of some tires maybe wheels. It is Yellow. I like the Maxxis 4x4 wheels. Has anyone ever had the Maxxis Bighorn tires? There is a new tire that I saw also like it the Swamp lite. Do yall know where a good deal is? Thanks for the help.:thanks: Jamey

Yeah, it really depends on the type of terrain in which you ride.

For Rocky, harder pack terrain, the Bighorns will do awesome, very tough durable tire with great traction.

For a little more mud, the ITP Mudlite XTR's are what I would want.

The 589's are pretty awesome tires too, pretty aggressive though.

So the two are very different? Mudlite xtr and the Bighorns

I would also like to make it just a little faster. What should I do ?

I think I am going with the Swamp Lites with the ITP SS112 wheels

This is not mine but the combo I am looking at

No offense, but swamplites suck...I know because we test a large variety of ATV products.

They suck really bad in the mud and they are heavy.

I would personally NEVER put a set of those tires on any ATV I owned. If someone gave me a set of them they would be on e-bay the same day.

Hey, do what you like. It’s your bike and if you want to screw it up I won’t stop you.

I’m just telling you that as far as mud they are hands down the worst tire I have seen. Everyone talks about how bad MudLite’s suck in the mud (and they do), but when we were testing the MudLite’s were kicking the crap out of the SwampLites.

They have a surprisingly rough ride too for the amount of tread they have.

Like I said though…it’s your bike…screw it up how you please.
