Outlaw ATV Tires - Pros and Cons

We talked to riders and dealers, scoured the forums and reviews, and checked owner surveys to get the real story. Below are excerpts from owners in their own words.


  • Excellent for deep slick mud and pull really great thru the deepest ruts due to sidewall wrappings.

  • I love these tires. I have a 2007 Brute force 650 with 27s on it and they are miles ahead of the competition.

  • Really light weight for the size. Unparalleled in mud. Pretty smooth ride for a strictly mud tire.

  • Laughing at your buddies when they're stuck and you're doing circles around them.

  • This is the best tire out there for the mud rider. They won't tear up your four wheeler if you don't ride like an idiot and as long as you keep up with some basic maintenance.

  • You don't have to spin them fast to keep them clean and they bite like no other tire I've seen.


  • Rough ride on hard surfaces. Very hard on axle shafts and related components. Buy these if you want to do ball joints and bushings every 6 months.

  • Causes extreme jealousy. May cause uncontrollable laughter watching others shout profanities at you when you ride through the hole they're stuck in.

Outlaw ATV Tires - Final Thoughts

If you're really serious about ATV mudding then the High Lifter Outlaws are as good a choice as anything on the market right now. Just be aware that this isn't an all terrain tire. If most of your riding is hard packed surfaces with an occasional mud hole - this isn't your best choice.

Remember that the larger sizes may require some mods to your ATV. Some of those are:

  • Cutting fenders for more clearance.

  • Lift kit for even more.

  • Gearing change to compensate for bigger diameter tires.

  • Heavier duty parts like axles due to increased driveline strain.

  • Snorkels to prevent water damage.

  • More power due to increased traction and rolling resistance of the tires.

So these are serious tires for serious mud. And that's about as serious as we're gonna get. ATV muddin' is about fun - so do what you have to - and dive in!
