Which tire?? ITP Holeshot HDs vs MudLite SPs

I'm torn 50/50. I really like the HDs, and have never heard a bad thing about them whatsoever. I do ride in alot of areas the have mud, rocks, creeks, etc.
I also always had Mud Lites on my utility quads, and they have not let me done once so I cannot decide which way to go. Mud Lites are approx. $50 cheaper per set. Looking for any opinions on this situation. BTW, these will be going on a 07 Predator

Really depends on how much mud you ride. That's where the Mud Lites would excel because of the wide lug spacing. The HD's would be a better tire for rocks but they are kind of heavy.

See that is some of the issue. I ride trails 100% of the time, all woods riding. There are mud holes, creek beds, down trees, etc. I do like to play a little and do donuts, hillclimbs, smaller jumps etc.

Mud lites would be great in the "mud", but do you ride just mud?
I would take a mental note of what terrain you are most often on, and then buy a tire that accels in that condition.

Well, I read several reviews on the Mud Lites and 90% say they are not just for mud, but hills, rocks, and even sand which I have none of in my area.

I'd pass on the ITP Hds. I had a set and they hook great, but wore them out (both FRONT and rear) within a year. I'd recommend MaxxisRazr2s. The mudlites are an excellent MUD tire, but only perform "OK" anywhere else. You wouldn't be disappointed with the Razrs.....

HDs are very heavy. They will actually remain up with no air in them.

Razr2 gets my vote too.

Really relies on how much mud you drive. Well i do really think that The HD's would be a better wheel for stones but they are type of large so the ride may become a little bit of heavy. . . .. .. . . . .
