STI Tire & Wheel is thrilled to announce the release of its all-new Silverback-XLite. Mud enthusiasts around the country spoke, and we listened. This new tire is based on one of the most successful mud tires of all time—the Gorilla Silverback—but the XLite is more accessible and useful to more riders.

The Silverback-XLite takes most of the features of the original Silverback and puts them in a lighter and more value-oriented package. It still delivers maximum traction in deep mud from its distinctive, aggressive, widely spaced tread pattern, but with less bulk. The lugs range from 1.125 to 1.250 inches tall depending on tire size. This allows for smoother, more versatile performance when not slinging mud in your favorite bog. It’s easier on the machine, and when comparing costs, it’s also much easier on the budget. This tire was rolled out at the recent High Lifter Mud Nationals in Texas and was an instant hit, selling out as fast as they could be brought out.

STI’s rugged 6-ply Silverback-XLite debuts in 11 sizes: 25×8-12, 25×10-12, 26×9-12, 26×11-12, 27×9-12, 27×11-12, 26×9-14, 26×11-14, 27×10-14, 28×10-14 and 30×10-14. This sizing is ideal for most popular utility/4WD ATVs and side-by-side UTVs. All of these sizes are now available except the 26×9-14 and 26×11-14, which will be coming soon.

STI Silverback-XLite tires are available at finer ATV/UTV dealers everywhere. For more information, visit
