Mud Lite XTR Vs Swamp Lite

OK Its pretty much internet wide land slide the Swamp Lite is a better tire than the Mud Lite.
 
So what about these Mud Lite XTRs? any opinions on them Vs the Swamp Lite?
 
 
my riding consists of trails, crawfish ponds, some flooded timber. I have been running stock tires with not many problems so far (usually just in the crawfish ponds) but I do want something a more agressive as I do like to go play in the occasional hole
 
I will be putting them on a 08 Foreman w/ powersteering. Will I be able to run a 26 or 27 with no trimming or lift?

    No comparison, mudlites suck all around.
    You will be able to clear 27's without an issue i'm sure, the only thing about the swamplite (as any tire from interco) is that they are made of a soft compound & will wear SOME & you can cut them really easy!

    Swamplites are better tires then Mudlites imo, but not better tires then XTRs imo. Both are great trail tires, the SLs ride a little smoother and climb much better, but the XTRs are better in the mud by a little bit, better in the sand by A LOT, and will last a good bit longer as the Swamplites are kind of a soft tire. But as with any ATV tire the trick to getting the tires to last is stay off the pavement as much as possible and try to control your thumb as much as possible when on harder ground.

    Well I got swamp lites with about 1700 kilometres on them of a variety of riding with very little wear.  They are 26 inches on my 450 kingquad and they do well for a variety of riding.  Don't know much about the XTR's but the mudlites wear fast as some of my buddies found out.

    SLs are no better then MLs IMO, I ride with a guy with 29.5" SLs and i have 30" MLs and there is not one thing his tires do better then mine.
    I have also had SLs and like them but they are not better then MLs these 2 tires are more equal then people want to admit.
    I would add the MLs are lighter as well and work better in sand, both will wear out fast if you ride them on the road and both will last if rode where they were made to be rode.

    Along with Swamplites, Interco makes Swampers, Vampires, Reptiles and EDL's(to name a few).  Which one of those tires do you think wears fast?

    The Swamplite is the ONLY tire from Interco that wears faster than average.  The Vampires (EDL's namely) are probably some of the longest lasting tires you can buy, period.

    To the original poster, I would go with XTR's, as they are comparable to Swamplites, but will last a LOT longer, as they are tough compound and a radial tire.

    i would get the Mud lite XTRS. i had the Xtrs and they do not wear at all.
    the swamp lite wear quick. their not good in sand and clog up easy. i have a couple of buddies that run swamp lites on rangers  and rzr and they do not like them. the wear way to quick. dont get me wrong they look cool when they are brand new but ride them and you will see them wear quick..

    I dont know anything about the swamp lites, but i do have a set of xtr's and I love them. Wish they would come out with a 28. The pull well, clean out o.k and reverse is real good. They ride real smooth too! if they come out with a 28 thats what I ll be buying. Like i said dont know anything about the swamp lites,but i hear good stuff about them!

    Notice "ANY" in the sentence.  Meaning tires made by Interco are softer than most, ie. swamplites, tsl's, bogger's and the list goes on and on.  Personally in the mud we have down here, i've yet to see an xtr come close to following a swamplite...

    Any - "to any degree or extent", "...every or all without specification"
     
    Thats a strict definiton of any, I know exactly what it means, maybe you misused it.  "Any" generally doesn't mean one or few, imo.  Especially when it's followed by a plural noun (tires).
    That any means any tire.  I gave you most of their ATV tires that DON'T wear fast.  This is an ATV tire forum, the Swamplites are the only Interco ATV tire that wears faster than average, while the other ones wear better than average.  Don't go spreading false information by assuming things.  That's all I'm trying to say.  IF you had owned any of these tires, you would not say that the Swamplites(NOT like "any" tire from interco), wear like other Interco ATV tires.  They don't, they wear faster.
     
    As for swamplite v. mudlite.  Close comparisons, but the climbing ability of the Swamplites is noticeable, but then again comes in the lower durability of them compared to the XTR mudlites.  Kind of a toss up, imo.
     
    I'm just trying to clear that up so people don't think Vampire EDL's wear fast, becasue thats what I would take from what you said.

    xtrs arent gonna give you really good mud performance...mud lite xls will do better than xtrs but the swamplites will give more bite and traction but the mudlite xls will follow them.

    I have 2 420 rancher one has Swamplites and one has XTR (my wifes) and all I can say is the next st I buy for mine will be XTR. They out perfrom mine any every palce sand, trails, and mud and she dosent even try in most places. And most of all the XTR will out last swamplites by a long ways.

    Just keep in mind the Swamp Lites over 28 inches tall have nearly 2 inches of lug.  They should prove to be just as capable as XTR's, if not more so.

    But under 27's, it's at best a toss up.

    swamplites will out perform xtrs in the mud by far until they wear down bad.like Jfred said they run big and have big lugs they also bite very hard and flex like an outlaw.

    IMO for what its worth I would go with SL cause of the price,the xtrs are good tires but SL will do anything you want them to do, I see alot of people sayin that they wear fast but I have yet to see that, guy we ride with has had the same set for 3+ years and we ride ruff hard rocky trails, they are hands down better than ML, once the center lug on the ML wear down they are no good....

    Just keep in mind the Swamp Lites over 28 inches tall have nearly 2 inches of lug.  They should prove to be just as capable as XTR's, if not more so.

    But under 27's, it's at best a toss up.


    My swamp lites mesured 27 1/2" new and Xtr mesured 27" And swamp lites are not even in the same catagory as XTR. XTR will bet it anywhere.
     
    My Swamp Lites have 700 miles on them and half wore out. The XTRs have 500 miles and are not showing any wear.

    the xtrs do wear good, I dont know why there called mudlite xtrs because they are nothing like the plain old mudlite, whatever tire you get I think you will be happy with

    the xtrs are a radial tire which gives them a wider footprint, so they should do better in some things.  They should definitely ride better on the trails.

    Man that would be a tough Desicion for me. I ride with guys that have both.
     Here's my perspective.  Swamplites ride good, and grip good from what I've seen. i know lots of people say that the XTRs punture easy, which is not suprising to me, but a buddy with Swamplites has done punctured his side wall very well. It took 5 plugs in one hole.  Yes, they are wearing down noticably.  The XTRs rode very smooth, and did everything the guy wanted them to do. Yes they are pricey, but they are radials. The 27's in near the same price as my Radial Outlaws.  The Swamplites are much cheaper.
     I can't make a desicion!! Guess I'd rather have other tires anyway!! LOL
