    well i think that might be a little to much tire for the quad.... i personally think the key to success is tire speed, and unless you have a 600 cc+ quad i wouldnt suggest it. that said iVe never road a 550 grizly before, only the kodiak 450 which i dont think could handle them. just my 2 cents

    Okay, thanks for the info so what do you think would be a good tire for that bike. I ride on the trails a little bit but go mudding more and like to mud more.

    I don't think those 27 backs are to much for the quad you will just have to clutch it and it will turn them no problem!!

    Silverbacks are nasty tires and they will pull you through anything as long as you have good throttle control.

    by good throttle control, do you you mean right to the bar all the way through?? lol

    for some reason im quite skeptical.... how is the power on the 550 griz compared to the kodiak 450?

    im thinking these would be a better choice. i run 26 inch zillas on my 700 kawi and can go just as far as any other 26 inch tire..... but ive also seen 28 inch swamp lites on a 450 honda and with the ultra low first gear it will turn them in ANYTHING lol.

    Its better to be able to spin a moderate aggressive tire that to bog down with a highly aggressive one. Cleaning and tire rpm is the key, I have 25" kenda bear claws on my 2wd 225cc yammy moto 4 and can go most anywhere someone with a 4wd can, sometimes farther, especially in skeg if I don't break through.
