swamplite tires

hi guys, any one running swamplite tires?
i am looking to put some on my cat and was wondering if i put 27 " do the tires have realy 27 inches and same with 28" cause i am affraid to go with 28" due to the lower ground clearance on the 2010 models ,dont want a put a lift kit

anyone can help on this

my buddy's have run the swamplites and love em.. the only complaint they have is that the softer rubber compound makes them proned to tearing off lugs if you trail ride for extended periods on hard surfaces.. just depends on your intended use.. if you spend most of your time crawling around and playing in the mud.. go for it but if you spend more time on rocky hard trails.. go with a less aggressive/harder tire. As for size.. I've said it before and I'll say it again.. and I know some will disagree.. stay with your stock size unless you intend to clutch your ride.. or put on the big sneakers with a stock set up and I'll drive circles around ya in a mud hole with my 26's.. lol

Ya mine are the same tire.. I haven't put the machine through much that would challenge them for that reason.. they seem to have a good tread pattern just not deep enough.. they're like a shaved down version of a swamp fox or something.. I'll be putting on a new set first thing in the spring when snowmobile season is done.. let me know how you make out with whatever you decide to put on..

I absolutely love my swamplites. They are a very good tire in every terrain i've been in. I went with the 28". No lift required. I will say that i did let AIRDAM/// do a stage one clutch work on mine. It was doing fine but i wanted to get all that extra grunt back for the deep mud.

I have 30'' swamplites on mine, it is stock, they rub a little bit, I had to move my parking brake cable, well after the tire moved it for me! But I didnt' lift it or wheel spacers. They work great for playing in the mud and plowing snow!

well i went with 27'' swamplites two weeks ago, man it is like day and night compared with stock tires
the only disapointement was to find out that the 28'' would have fit , so to anyone wondering on the 2010 xtx models, since the ground clearance is lower that previous models 28'' tires will fit without lift kit

I just bought today some 27x9x14 front and 27x11x14 rear for my 650 xt, I did some research and these had a lot of good reviews and seem to be lighter than others and good for this prowler, any body else running these and have any reviews.

What kind did you buy,swamplites. If so muddogefi has run them on a few buggys.Do you happen to know the weight on those,there is a weight chart on here somewhere but I can't find it.
