since you got oem rims you only have 2 choices for the rear the razor or the kutter both holds up well to rocky conditions as they are 6ply bias tires there is also way less sidewall flex which means it will turn and slide better than the oem 4 ply i think the oem rears are 6 ply but still really easy for puntures and they dont handle worth a shit

I've got kenda kutters on mine in OEM size. They work great in most all conditions. I ride hard and have yet to puncture them. I also have maxxis zillas for the back in a 24-10-11. And they are good all around as well so far. I've got razrs up front. Way better than stock tires. Cuts down the front end push a lot.
It depends they are both pretty good. The zillas hook up really well on the xx. In pretty well all conditions. I really like the kutters but if things get wet they are at a disadvantage. I haven't ridden too many miles with the zillas yet to be honest with you. So I'm not sure how they will hold up as far as punctures and tire wear. The kutters I've put a lot of miles on and they are holding up amazingly. No punctures no cuts and the tread is holding up really well. And I ride a ton of gravel roads with lots of sliding and spinning. It's really a matter of what you ride. Here in manitoba it can be really dry or it can be really wet all in the same trail so I wanted to try the zillas and see. So far I've put maybe 60 miles on them and so far I really like them. Everybody says I throw a ton of rocks up now. Worse than before. I'm sorry if this isn't as helpful as you'd like as to one tire or the other. But they both have their merits. That's kinda why I just bought both.
