10x12 is a common size for a front atv tire. the more they sell, the cheaper the price

If you're anywhere near the Cdn/US border, the best thing to do, is have them shipped to a US address, from
a US supplier. Then go pick them up.
If you try to buy them in Canada, or have them shipped in, it'll cost you twice as much.
I have several sets of TruPower's, in various sizes. They're great in the mud/dirt/bush.

those (25x10-12) would work great, if you dont have a fender rub issue. that is a good price too.

Atv tires would probably be the way to go. I have heard they have better gripping capabilities in mud than ag tires.

I would say, looking at the lug pattern, that it would be a bumpy ride, because the lugs don't wrap enough to keep a constant ride height. Other than that, should work great for you!

Atv tires have a weaker side wall than the GT tire, so it may not be that bad of a ride. The only problem I could see on the ex's is the depth of the tread. Once they get mudded up, a gt wont have to wheel speed to clean out the tread.

Yes, I've bought a few sets (fronts and backs) that way.
Miller tire are good folks to deal with.

If you watch Kijiji sometimes you can find good tires the size you need up for sale, I got 2 sets of rear AG tires that way.
As for the fronts there a lot smaller, lighter and it doesn't cost a lot to buy from Miller tire and get them shipped up here.
The difference in the shipping cost for 1 front tire vs 4 is not that much. I got 3 sets (6 tires) of front rib tires that way.

I was looking around on the Miller site and saw that they have Canadian distributers. You may be able to get a decent price through them. Heres a link to the distributer page. http://www.millertir...m/distributors/
