Default Swamp Lite Tires, Good or Bad?

Does anyone run the interco swamp lite tires. I have found no reviews on these tires except for what the manufaturer has to say. I ordered a set for a old 250 timberwolf and was curious if anyone has had good or bad experiences with these tires.

I used to think the Swamplites I had were great. The only issue I had was they seemed to wear fast (specially the rear). I had several sets on different ATV's. Couldn't beat the price at Best ATV Mud Tires : ATV Wheels : Cheap ATV Tire Kits : ITP Tires : Maxxis ATV Tires Free Shipping : Mud-Throwers.com and I don't ever remember getting a hole in them.
That being said, I like my Maxxis Zillas (not mudzillas) better. They have a better grip in the mud and seem to be wearing much better. I believe they are a little more than the Swamplites, but still very affordable.

Friend has them. Hasn't put as many miles on them as gents above have yet. Likes them. I've never seen him stuck yet and we go through some pretty deep stuff.

I just sold a set of 27" swamplites with about 500 miles of rough riding on them- they hook up great and the lugs were deep and self cleaned pretty good (which means I got covered!) They love to grab & fling everything! But then again, Can-Am fenders never were any good at blocking debris!

Those are them on my 08 Outty 800 iin my avatar- and I think theres a few pics in my album-

What are the true height of the swamp lite tires? Do they run taller than they say or shorter?

Never ride behind anyone running swamplites in the winter! Those little dimples throw ice BB's!
)

Those that have them have loved them, but they do wear fast it seems.

Swamp lites are larger than the number on the side, my 26's were actually 27 1/2" with 5psi in them on 8" wide wheels. And as far as wear? I have 5386 miles on them as of last weekend and not worn hardly at all. But NEVER have they been on pavement. Its the tire for me great price and free shipping from mudthrowers . Com

hhhmmmm...so i am thinking about buying the swamp lites or mud lites for my 2010 550xp...it has 26's stock...thinking 27's...but if there 26's are really 27 1/2" tall...what would there 27's be ?!!..28 1/2" tall ?? holy cow....

I run a fair bit of mud, last year tho was a wierd year here in ohio with our drought.
my older 500ho has mud lites and i like them...not sure why i am thinking of a change to swamp lites for the 550.

what are ppl's opinions of either one? mud lites vs swamp lites.

the mud lites seem to be more mud oriented by there paddle styled tread pattern where as the swamp lite looks more all terrain but say swamp on'em...
