Really? You didn't like them in snow? A few years ago, I bought a used 450 foreman, it has 26" mud lites on it. That thing pawed through deep show like a polar bear. I now I'm talking mudlites xl and you had xtr, but they are very similar, I wouldn't think enough difference to matter. But I will say once I got hung up on something, they would dig straight down until they found traction, or the bike finally bottomed out.I had an older set of 26" Mudlite XTRs, they were great tires that handled awesome, and wore like iron. My only two complaints was one of my fronts had a speed wobble on pavement, and all and all they were terrible in snow.
