I would guess that the Swamp Lites would be better than the Carlisle tire that is on my ATV. From the factory it's not a bad combo but may as well be much softer, even for a ATV. They do have very similar tread patterns. If I could have the ground clearance that the 26/11/14 will get me in comparison to the factory tires that are 25/10/12, they would stay on my 4 wheeler until needing replaced. Like any offroad place, the guys with the paddle tires can really rut out a mud hole. I might give those Bighorns a try. My brother was running those Roctane's and other than the fact that they were put on at a local place to the Hatfield & McCoy trails, I don't think he ever got the tire pressure low enough for riding on the rocks. That said, there were wet rocks that he didn't feel comfortable crawling without a winch. Once he was through, I made it up those rocks with my stock tires! I had a flat on one of the tires 30 miles from the camp site. We had it plugged and pumped within a few minutes but I would feel better without a plug in any of my tires.
