    I love my Terrabites and I may be wrong but everything I've seen about WV trails is that it's a mudding culture and would require a tire better suited for that environment. The Terrabites will get you through milder mud on occasion but if what I see\hear is true, something with a little more aggressive tread would be better.

    Lots of mud but I try to avoid the worst of it. We have slot of good trails from soft to hardpack and a lot of river crossings with lots of rock beds. Thx

    I'm mostly hardpack with very little mud and 50% highway driving so it's a no brainer for me. If soft pack and/or mild mud is 50% of your riding I would go with a more-aggressive tread. My stock tires would keep me above the ruts better whereas my Terrabites would let me slip into the ruts............it would get me through them mind you and impress me that I didn't get stuck, but I rode through with that going down a roller coaster ride feeling.

    Everyone will have a different answer. I've been very impressed with the Bearclaw HTR. Tough, good traction, true to size and wear great There are a few running these on here and they are well regarded. They are really hard on turf, if it matters to you.

    27x9r12 all around.

    Wolverine4SHR, remember that there is no "best" tire out there, there are however many excellent tires out there for many different conditions and price points. Currently Tusk Terrabites, ITP Blackwater Evolutions, Kenda Bearclaws, and Maxxis Carnivores seem to be the most popular in the all terrain category. Bighorn OG's were the top dog many years and still a great tire, but the OEM's have ruined the reputation by making lower quality Bighorns as a factory tire (2/4 ply vs 8, smaller lugs, etc), but the originals are also still a good tire. Good luck on your search and whatever you decide will be an upgrade.

    I have been running the Kenda Bearclaws in WV regularly. This past weekend proved again why I like them.we had trails with deep V ruts. The Kenda side lugs do great for this. We also ran pavement.I have about 3500 mi on them so far.

    I’ve used Bearaw HTR’s on my Grizzly and they were great. On my wolvy, I’ve had Sedona Ripsaws and ITP Blackwater Evolutions. All 3 have great grip and a nice ride on both hardpack and mild to moderate mud.
