Titan 489 XT Rear Tires

I'm very happy with these tires.
They are 6 ply, have a fairly aggressive tread, but in stock size, you can still slide the rear end aound. Good in all terrain, snow, mud, sand, and hard pack

I've used these on the rear and the similar Carlise 489's on the front in muddy and dry conditions. I think they're a great all around tire. At Durhamtown, the trails are red Georgia clay and when water is added, it becomes a sticky mess. These tires did not "pack up" with clay and offered excellent traction at all times.

Can't find a weakness

I have been very well satisfied with the 489XT's.  During a trip to Little Sahara, I turned them around with the thought that they might scoop better.  What happened was a little too good of a bite and I pushed hard through corners.  I turned them back around to the proper direction and never had trouble in the sand the entire week.
As for the woodland trails in all the areas I ride, I can't find a weakness in the 489's!
As an added bonus, they are fairly reasonable in the price category.

Would these be an appropriate tire for a 350? (assuming they have the correct sizes on stock rims)

My rears are original and well need to be replaced.

Thanks
Bob

They are the same for the Pilot or Ody 350!
