ok that helps..
now I am sure I am way over thinking this but in addition to the Maxxis and the Kenda I first put up. Would there be any reason to look at this one?

https://www.walmart.com/ip/2-WANDA-S...Race/550979920

it got decent reviews and looks similar to the Kenda, but maybe a better tread pattern with less open space. I promise after this Iíll just decide. Haha I just canít tell if itís a cross county only type or it will work for front tires in all conditions including mud. It said it has deep lugs which is why I brought this one up. And itís oem size

All 3 tires have 1/2" tread depth, give or take a tiny fraction, like 0.03". The only thing I know about WANDA tires is that someone on here said they were good. Since they're made for GNCC they should be tough as advertised. I found them cheaper when I was trying to find out more about them. 2 for 72 bucks. I didn't check how much shipping is but I would jump on that deal right now.

ETA: I went back and checked the price on shipping. Standard Shipping (3 -10 Days) to my ZIP code is FREE. In stock: Ready to ship. I would buy them for sure. Where else can you get 2 new tires, delivered to your door, for a total of $71.94? You can put the other $28 in your gas tank and tell Wally-World to suck it.

Don't forget, online orders for Wally World still charges TAXES. They have a physical store location in every state. So if your state charges sales tax, so will wal mart.

That a good point and one I didn't even think about. It would add another $6.00 to their $99.99 here.

I liked it when our sales tax was only 4%, 1 cent for every quarter you spend. Simple. I knew the exact price on a lot of things before I got to the cash register. I had to use a calculator to figure out that 6% is 1 cent for every 16.67 cents, rounded off from 16.6666666666 to infinity. And I didn't get the right answer the first time. That math is a lot harder to do in my head.

I waited too long.. I went back today and noticed they don't even show the 21x8x9 size now!
I did find these.. same exact tread pattern, but different manufacturer.. Ever heard of them ?

Like the old saying goes: You snooze, you lose. I know what an ocelot is but I can't say I've ever heard of ocelot tires. I don't know who makes them but chapmoto.com is the only distributor. They show 63 tire and wheel options here.

Haha thatís the truth. I'll go ahead and test them out for that price! Tread looks good, 4ply only, but cheap enough to replace easily.
i know it seems like Iím cheeping out, but Iím going to add those Trac Guards from Walmart for the rears. $40 a tire and they look like try can handle mud well. Whole set for $180. Any reason not to?

At this point you just need buy something, anything, as long as it's better than your old tires.

No clue whatsoever. What shape are your lug nuts on the end that contacts the wheel?
