The Gorilla Silverback utilizes six-ply construction with the toughest rubber compound available in the ATV Market. A specially designed wide-lugged tread pattern performs especially well in the most extreme muddy conditions. The deep lugs give the rider all the confidence in the world when the mud and water gets deeper while the tread wraps from the center of the face all the way to the bead, allowing for more traction in the most severe ruts and riding situations. With the industry’s most intricate tire design, the Gorilla Silverback is proven in identical machine tests…and NOW in head-to-head competition…to outperform other tires in its class, making the Gorilla Silverback Tire the hardest-pulling tire on the market. Featured in the tread design of the Silverback is the World-Famous Gorilla Axle “Gorilla Face” logo, boldly marking every tire as tested and approved by Team Gorilla. To top off the features of the Gorilla Silverback tire, each and every Silverback is made in the USA!
