What is the lightest aggressive ATV mud tire?

When choosing an ATV mud tire, it is key to find the optimal balance between weight and performance. Mud tires have aggressive thread patterns with large lugs so that the tire will paddle through the mud. In general, more aggressive tires are heavier.

Here are the lightest ATV mud tires divided into three different levels of thread pattern aggressiveness.

Least aggressive mud tires

  • Maxxis Zilla (30×11-14 weighs 30.8 lb)

Medium aggressive mud tires

  • Interco Swamp Lite (28×11-14 weighs 35.0 lb)
  • ITP Monster Mayhem (30×10-14 weighs 40.0 lb)

Most aggressive mud tires

  • Maxxis Mudzilla ( 30X11-14 weighs 44.0 lb)
  • CST Sludge Hammer ( 30×10-14 weighs 42.7 lb)
  • Interco InterForce II ( 32×6.5-14 weighs 48.9 lb)

Why is the weight of an ATV mud tire important

But why does the weight of an ATV mud tire matter after all? Well here are a few good reasons.

Heavy tires rob a lot of power

Heavier tires reduce acceleration and speed by robbing engine power. Faster acceleration and more paddling-action is the most significant benefit of getting lighter mud tires.

Heavy tires cause more strain on the drivetrain, causing wear and damage

Accelerating and stopping a heavier tire cause more strain and wear on the bike’s brakes and drivetrains such as the axles, CV joints, and drive belt.

Belt slippage is not uncommon when installing heavier tires without making upgrades to the clutches as well.

How can you modify your ATV to handle bigger and heavier tires?

Upgrade drivetrain components such as the axles to heavy-duty aftermarket options to make the bike better capable of handling heavy mud tires.

Clutch kits are available for most ATVs and will make the bike better set up for larger and heavier mud tires.

Are the manufacturer’s weight ratings always accurate?

Most ATV tire manufacturers list the weight of each type and each size of the tire they make. But how accurate are the numbers that are listed?

I scavenged a bunch of ATV forums as well as weighing some of my own tires. From what I found, you may expect the manufacturer’s tire weight rating to be relatively accurate, but a deviation of 1-3 pounds from the rated weight seems to be within what you can expect.

The listed rating can be a bit off in the first place, or the manufacturer may have made changes in the manufacturing process of a specific tire that changes the tire weight. It is not uncommon that changes are made without updating their website. Resellers are even less likely to catch on to small updates that can affect tire weight.
