alot about breaking the bevel gears is how hard you are on it,I have a buddy of mine that muds the heck out of his and its a 06 and hasnt tore them out yet.

Justin, I have run both. I run 29" zillas right now when I'm doing the mud racing and have not had an issue. It really depends on the riding you do. If you ride 90% mud go for the zillas! YOU WILL NOT GET STUCK! BUT, if you do any trail riding on a regular basis (rocky/rooty trails) stay away from them! Or carry a couple spare axles with you! These are great tires but if you get them in a bind your machine will give before they do. I currently have a set of 27" swamplites for sale cheap but the problem would be shipping if you were interested. I took them off because for me they were to hard for the riding I do. I've run alot of tires and instead of the swamplites I would go with the Sedona Mud-Rebels! Great tire, not to hard, and work well for all terrains. That is if you ride trail. If not Zilla's all the way!

Have you considered Bighorns? I went with the 2.0's and they are awesome tires for the riding I do.. sounds similar to your riding conditions.
