I personally would just stay with the laws, but the 30x11 backs all around sure do look good

IMO everyone saying the backs dig terribly is all hype. But, that's just my opinion. You will absolutely love 30" backs, i sure do love mine. Keep in mind, although the outlaws are considered a paddling tire, they will still dig. The backs MAY dig a little worse, i just don't think it's enough to worry about. In some situations it doesnt matter what tire you have, if you're in something bottomless and your frame is sitting in the mud the mud could careless what tire you have.

Last weekend i went riding at Busco which is very rutted and has some nasty holes. We ended up meeting a group of guys with brutes. One had 31 outlaws, the rest had 29.5s. The guy with 31s did not hit a single hole but i put my brute next to his and there was about .5" difference in height between his 31 laws and my 30 backs, with the laws being just that .5" taller.

We then hit a hole, i was the first to get in there. My 30" backs did great, very little effort to get through it. Then the guys with 29.5s tried it and they had to work much harder IMO. These were all brutes, all had 2" lifts etc, the norm.

I can't say how much of this was rider or how much was tire. I was the only one with 30" backs, the other 3 were 29.5 laws that hit that hole.

If they only made a 29.5 in a 14 inch wheel
