Okay, let's hear some opinions. I am talking all around use. Trail, hard pack, bit on the muddy side etc. The only real complaint I may have when it comes to my Kodiak is the tires. Going to upgrade soon and looking at Zillas. Thoughts?

I have never ran Maxxis Zillas, but a lot of people do. Maxxis makes some great aftermarket radial tires with a lot of different choices on tread patterns. I have ran the Maxxis Bighorn originals and currently run Maxxis Ceros, like both. Do some research and read tire reviews to decide what you need for your riding conditions.

Been researching the heck out of it lol. Seems all over the map. Would like to go up to 26" on my stock rims while not going too heavy on the tires. The zilla is looking really good on weight and traction. Durability is also a concern and I wonder what they sacrificed to lighten these up?

The Zilla is a lightweight bias tire, probably not the best choice for rocky terrain, areas with thorns or riding where puncturing tires is a major concern. Most of the Maxxis radial tires will measure a little over their stated size for diameter, a 25'' radial might take care of your riding style without excessive weight. The 25'' Ceros that I'm currently running are heavy tires, but my Kodiak 700 has no problems with them.

I ran a set of Sedona Mud rebel's on my last utility Atv. They were great tires. I did have the radial version of them.

Maxxis bighorns will take you everywhere you need to go, with good tread life. Not budget friendly tires though.
