    On my stampede, I like masher 2000's and moabs. For taller or thicker grass, moabs seem to be taller, but for golf like grass, the mashers have a bigger contact patch.

    Lol ya all you have is vast desert expances. But I would say try the badlands, they look prety bad-a. But the badlands or moabs will work good.

    Its funny how you wish that you could run on the grass and most of us wish that we had the amount of sand that you do.

    I put some Moabs stretched over 30 series wabash wheels on today and it has made a massive difference off road, so much more controllable! would recommend :-)

    +2 on gladiators , they work awesome on grass and various other offroad surfaces. on blacktop they wear out fast but hook up like crazy as well.

    all the suggested above are great choices, but if you're running most of the time over wet grass, i think that the best is pl's Trac-Ta-Gator, because it's specially made for wet surfaces.
