A tough decision, need some help

I'm basically down to the last step of deciding which tires i want, I ride in mud basically all the time, i dont race and we dont have sand hils in AK so i wont be doing that. here are the options, i just need some input and help on deciding. Keep in mind i am only buying rear tires, i will put rims on the fronts as well, but im really only worried about the rears:

ITP Mud Lite XL, 1 inch of tread, total size 25-10x12, on a 12 tall by 10 OMF rim.

or

Innova Mud Gear, 2/3 inch of tread, total size 24-10x11, on a 11 tall by 10 Beadlock Specialties rim.

Any input is helpful, if anyone knows about how the ITP's work over other brands or if anyone has heard about the Innova's i would like to know. also if you guys have input on the extra half inch of clearance the 25'' tire may give i would love to hear it. either way i am putting a 13t front sprocket on and then i will play with the rear to fine tune what i need, but just input on which tires you all think would be helpful.

Mudlites suck nuts. POS tire. Zillas are the best all around tire out right now.

I've got several buddies with them and they are all very happy.

so i found a Maxxis Zilla in a 25-10x12 with 3/4 tread, less than the ITP but more than the innova, plus they weigh less than both. But how does their tread work in mud? now im not talking the occasional mud puddle, we ride in deep mud, like swamps up to the top of the rims most of the time. Would the Zilla treads do good in deep mud? anyone have some experience with this?

My buddies live in South Mississippi and this is where they actually export mud out to other mud poor states. The mud lites worked well there and help up well too. Mind you these were, on the majority, on 400cc quads with the exception of two raptors (one 660 and one 700) The clean out was very good.

There's a Zilla in 24/10/11. Trust me they outperform any Mudlite. They're lighter, wear very well, handle high speed, they clean out, and runs very smooth for how aggressive it is. I had the mudlights on the kfx700 and switched to Zillas and the difference is night and day.

I would buy them for this reason alone. I would be leary of 10" rims for trail use on a 700xx.
