I am looking at a set of 27" or 28" tires. Does anyone here know first hand about this tire?

I need something that can hold up to rocky terrain, so these look perfect for my application.

we didn't have any luck with them and everyone else who had them didn't likem either. swamp lites are a great tire and holding up very well in rocky conditions. if you don't want to spend the bucks on them i would go after the bias mud lites for the price of them. they wear great and hook up well for the price.

I'll be mounting some Highlifter MST's that I LOVE on my Vinson 500 on the Teryx very soon and will let you know. They work excellent on the Vinson.

Wrong thread sorry

Thanks for the replies. The reason I inquired of their quality is I noticed they list Chen Shing as their rubber supplier. Chen Shing is better known as Maxxis tires.

I wanted to know how similiar the final product from GBC compared to that offered by Maxxis.

I believe the Dirt Tamer from GBC is a knock off Big Horn from Maxxis, but if its the same rubber, you would think the tires would be of similiar quality.

I have the 27" Dirt Devils on a 01 sportsman 500 and they work well in deep south mud. Thats the regular ones and the tread is alot deeper.
I can't say on the II's. I like the ones I have. Have the GBC Gators in 28" on a 07 sportsman 800 and have had good service out of them too. I think the company has a good product for the price.

I was considering them. I was also looking at these supergrip superlight tires. Look just like ITP mudlites, but much cheaper. I think a full set of 28's was only $325 shipped or something like that.

I also found the GBC dirt devil II on ebay for like $321 shipped.

According to their website the dirt devil II has deeper lugs than the first ones!

They have several kinds. Dirt Devil A/T, X/T, and the II's. I have the X/T's and I think they are the deepest
