We mostly ride backroads (gravel/blacktop) and some off road trails in Missouri. I'm looking for a light weight, long lasting AT type tire in a 32x10x15. I've tossed around the idea of a 31x1050 LT but every thing I have found is too heavy. I'd like to stay at or under 40 lbs if possible.

Please let me know and thanks.

The machine has no real issue with a tire weight up to 55lbs.. I would look at the gladiator. (You may need longer ring bolts) You might also consider a tune if you feel you’ve lost too much power. But for your riding, I don’t think it sounds like a big concern. If that doesn’t suit you look at the Braven berzerkers or blood axe but nothing will give you tread life on gravel or blacktop outside of a LT tire.

Those tires are definitely the ones I’m going to run once I burn through the stock ones. I met a couple of people out on the trails last weekend that are running those, and they loved them. Said they were the best tire for my area.

East coast here, so you nailed it for me.
we got some mud
I have two houses one is in North Carolina the other is in the upper part of Virginia which is 30 minutes from the Hatfield McCoy trail system whereas we have over 700 miles of trail riding.
On the Hatfield McCoy trail system you pick your poison it can be all rocks are all mud are just good long distance trail riding mountain scenery.

these gladiator tires look very similar to the carnivore tires that come on the krx. At least the tread pattern does. Looks like better sidewall on the gladiators.

Braven Bloodaxe in 32/10/15 clock in at 43lbs. At $229 per tire definitely not the most affordable bit you get what you pay for. I run them in the 35’s and I can honestly say they are probably the best tire I’ve ever had on an offroad vehicle. They do everything exceptionally well. Mud, asphalt, hard-pack trails, loose rocks, etc etc etc, we have a little bit of everything here in the ozarks and the bloodaxe just gets it done.

We’ve done most of the Hatfields and three of the Spearheads. Headed back down to Grundy to stay at Southern Gap adventures early June. It’s beautiful there.

its give and take, the bloodaxe is great at everything but geared more towards hard pack and asphalt whereas the berserker is also good at everything but geared more towards heavier frequent mud.
