I really think you would have more input if you asked people that use this kind of tire on a regular basis. I would try going on a forum with 4x4 people since a majority use these kind of tires all the time. IMO I would use the Zilla because of the lighter weight and less tread height. I see people all the time on the trails I ride with nasty, huge lug mud tires tearing everything up. Most of the time it's never needed or necessary and all for show.
