headscratch need some input on tires

ok, i m going to put 24-9x11's on my rears. i am planning on putting on a 13t front sprocket so i dont lose power. The tires are going to either be GBC Gator's or GBC Dirt Devil 2's. incase your wondering why not ITP Mud Lites, the 24's only have a 1/2 inch of tread, the GBC's have 5/8 and 7/8 of tread. I dont ride in sand, i dont race, i ride in mud, deep mud. but i still need a little speed.
if anyone has some input on a different set of tires and where to find them that would be very cool, i have been looking for a 23'' wheel on a 10 wide rim but i cant find any rims either 10 or 11 inches tall by 10 inches wide. if you know a site with a 23-10x10 tire or something close maybe a 10 tall by 10 wide rim so i can put 24-10x10's on. also, if you know where i can find a 10 tall by 10 wide rim i would love to know where to find it? do 10 inch rims even fit on the xx?

I have the Bearclaw 24-9-11 and they work great. They have low profile tread. I also have the RAZR 11's and they're awesome.

did you put a smaller front sprocket on after putting the 24's on? if so, what was the gearing like? was it real real low or what? ive been looking for like 4 hours and cant find any 11'' tall by 10 wide rims. i wish i could because a 24-10x11 Mud Gear would go thru mu like a beast.

I never touched the sprocket and it's fine.

hey Chrisj... do you have any pix of the Bearclaws... I'm wondering how they'll do for desert racing... trying to do something out of the ordinary, but don't know how these particular ones will do

I'll get some close ups tonight of the tire and tread. I don't think these will show you good enough.

Another tire for the OP would be a Zilla. They are very light and run smooth on hard pack. They have them in 24-9=11 also.

how do you like your setup on the xx? would you recommend it for fast and hard pack riding?

I find it runs better than the stock tires. I fly on this bike.
