I like my Commanders, light and seem to be pretty tough. The rears have worn a little faster than the Bighorns, but I went from 26" horns to 25" Dirt Commanders and saved almost 40lbs of weight.

I will continue to buy GBC products!

Oh and FYI, the Commanders do run a little short in measurement. I will be going to 26's when these wear out.

How do they stack up against sidewall punctures. I love big horns but gosh I got a ton of small slits in the sidewalls this year

I havent had one as of yet....but with the same token, 1000 miles on Big horns, and the only flat I ever had was knocking it off the bead in a rut.

So far I have seen nothing that compares to the durability of GBC's 8 ply Grim Readers and Dirt Commanders when it comes to durability. Between the two I am liking the dirt commanders a little better. I am running beadlocks with 15 psi. I just wish they would run true in size or they would offer a 27" tire for the 12" wheel, I prefer an actual tire height of 26-27".

I think they are making the Bighorn sidewalls thinner than before.You used to never be able to cut them,but now almost everyone has a plug or two in their Bighorns.

I think Im down to runnins 8 or 9 psi and they seem to working good there. I like run my tires a little on the high side to keep them on the rims and to help from pinching the sidewalls on rocks. My 25's measured 25 exactly at the top of the tread with no weight on them, so they are a little on the short side.

I had a friend who ran Reapers, and I wasnt greatly impressed with them. The real only bad thing I will say about the Comanders, is that since they are not radial, they will shake a little going down the highway at max speed.

Well is this tire better int he sidewall then? What are better options than BigHorns. I have no idea so I am looking for a tire education.

My Bighorns were on a 09 Rzr, but I have heard of many having Bighorn issues. I have not had any flats at all with the Commanders, but have seen a couple on Grim Reapers. However, these two tires are two of the few tires rated for the weight of a sxs.

I have never ran the big horns but from what I have seen I think the dirt commander is a better trail tire with better puncture resistance and performance but you may get a few more miles out of the bighorns due to the lug spacing. The lugs are wider spaced on the dirt commanders than big horns which will yield better performance in loose dirt and muddy conditions, the wider spacing also means they will wear a little faster if they have a similar compound.
