what are the best tires for trail ridding

Ok just got a trx700xx 08
I need new tire really bad. Most of my ridding is done on tight trails with mud rocks and water. I knew the 700 was a beast but had no idea it was going to have so much tork.
I have 2 brands in mind on tires also keeping on the stock rims.

k299 bear claw Mud / snow
rear size 25x10-11
front size 23x7-10
Are these too big that they will rub?
or
ITP Mud Lite at/sp Mud terrain
rear 24x10-11
front 22x7-10



Please help
supper confused

Hey there. First save yourself some money and don't bother getting matching front tires. The fronts don't do any pulling so they don't need the extra tread or the extra weight. For front tires I know a lot of the people are running razrs or razr2's. they are a more suitable steering tire. As far as back tires go I have a set of bear klaws on a sportsman400ho and they are not as good as I hoped they would be. They aren't to great in the snow and they are heavy. As for the mud lites. They seem to be a decent tire I know lots of guys with them that seem to like them. However after extensive research I went with a maxxis zilla in a 24-10-11 size so as to keep the stock rim. And they are an amazing tire. They hook up in all conditions. They slide nice on gravel they pull super hard in the mud. At Christmas I was doing wheelies in 6-8 inches of snow with them. Plus they are one of the lighter mud tires out there. So I didn't really lose any top end when I put them on. I can still pull 60mph wheelies all day long. Also 25" tires will rub on occasion. My 24" 's have rubbed occasionally in high speed whooped out sections. But if you are committed to one of those brands I'd go with the mud lites over the klaws. Or if you are open to suggestions go with maxxis zillas and you won't be disappointed at all. But that's only my opinion.

Welcome to the club

I don't understand why would want a utility tire on a sport quad, if most of your riding is on tight trails.

All my buddies who ride are telling to get mud tires front & back for the kind if ridding we do
I'm keeping the stock rims

Just want to make sure I have enough traction
Another thing that's confusing me is the stock rim sizes
Is this correct rear 9-11 front 7-11
I feel like tires are very limited
New to the game open to suggestion?

Front is 5.5 X 10" rear 7 X 11". You were closer to tire size than wheel size.

Do all your buddy's ride sport or utility quads? Mud tires on the front would only make sense if you had 4 wheel drive? Other wise they will just pack full of mud and slow you down and get you stuck easier, imo.

Razr makes the best sport tires, and you can get the rzr II's up front. Kenda makes another sport tire the kutter, that will fit the rear of the trx700xx.

Original tires sizes are 21x7x10 front. And 22x9x11 rear. I would keep the tire heights as close as possible. The mudlights are good tires, and don't look bad on the 700xx.
