    Mud tyres.... autocross vs 4x4 vs ATV
    #1

    Hi everyone,
    Am after people's thoughts on tyre preferences and please direct me to relevant chats on this as no doubt it has been broached!
    The buggy will weigh about 400-450kg when finished and is similar to an Edge Barracuda and will be fitted with either 14 or 15" rims.
    The reason I ask is mostly for cost as Atv tyres, which are ideal, are near double the price of budget 4x4 mud tyres and will wear quicker apparently. 4x4 tyres are heavy and difficult to get under 29" dia though.
    The issue is mostly with the rear as I'll be running a 300hp 450ftlb elec motor that'll be hard on tyres me thinks.
    The terrain is hard pack dirt, kinda rocky in parts and some loam.
    I'm thinking a hard compound wide spaced tread pattern 25-28 dia 10" wide ideally.
    Have seen some autocross/rally mud tyres that are narrower than that but should wear fairly well and aren't too expensive.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance

    Personally I like the last one, the 1st one, and nothing about that 2nd one even makes me want to look at it again. The first is a chinese knockoff of maxxis bighorn atv tire. Popular tire on SxS around here for hog hunting.

    Thanks for your reply mate and yeah I like the last one too...just impossible to get under 31" and a very heavy tyre.
    The middle one being an autocross/rally tyre is a bit of a blank canvas as they're quite often hot knifed, have certain lugs removed for specific conditions and can take a royal beating, def an option.
    28/29 UTV tyres are prob the way I'll go...just have to suck it n see!
