Im torn all to hell about what tires to get. Never ran any of the tires i named but all seem to have good reviews. Anybody put the Rockers to the test? Looks like a good chance of tearing a lug on them. MuddyBuddy seems to like the Radial and MST. All of you seem to have ran the Bighorns. Whats he differencein the regular and 2.0? Need some help fellas, dont know what to get. I mostly trail ride but i dont mind jumping in a moderate hole after "having a few." I'm going to run 27's on a Rhino with maybe 10's front and back? Do i seem undecided? lol! Please help

Ditto
I am pulling hair out also. Too many options....... I plan to run stock rims and not really looking for tires to stick out and sling mud in my beer!

Some will agree, others will not. I have been running the same Big Horns for over 2 years. I like them on the different types of riding that I do, including my yard, the road, mud and rocks. No flats yet. NEXT!!!!!!!

The 2.0 Bighorns have thinner sidewalls and shallower tread. They were designed to be lighter weight than the original Bighorns. They're also a bit less expensive. But, IMO they're not nearly as tough nor wear/last as long.

I chose to go with the originals, and haven't regretted it. There's certainly better tires in deep mud, or in really sticky mud (you must spin them to clean them or they'll ball up). But, IMO they're still a great all-around trail tire, and the tire that all the other manufacturers try to imitate...

Bighorns are a Flat tire waiting to happen. The sidewalls are thin. I had them and would never get them again. Now i'm using ITP Bajacross tires and they have been good so far. They have 700/miles on them and doing good.

They are all great but each has their own strong point.
Bighorn 2.0- dont even bother
Original bighorns- probably the best BALANCED tire good on all surfaces
The rockers are just a step better at gripping the messy stuff than the bighorns, also a very good all around tire plus they are thick!
The outlaw MSTs are a very good tire for some extra mudding but still being very trail balanced.
The outlaw radials are a great trail tire, ride alot smoother than you would think and if you still want a good trail tire but have the best trail oriented tire that can still mud, its the radials.

Hope this helped!! Chug

Ive yet to see anyone have issues with flats on Bighorns.

However, I run GBC's and love them

However, I think my next tire may be the sedonas

I would get a flat every time I went out............................... Right threw the sidewalls, all 4 tires with tubes and plugs in them. 2 nd worst tire I ever had.The very worse was GBC Dirt Tamers those were even worse if that's even possible. I would always carry a spare tire with me and leave 1 extra back at the truck for backup.

The 26-14 BHs are flat city... I know, and I've learned how to patch them. I've had to learn. I am now running patches.

The 12" versions are much better...

The worst tire Ive ever seen was the old Mud Lights.

Alot of my group used to run Dirt Tamers on Rhinos and Teryxs, we had flats here and there, but for the price I always thought they were a decent tire.

I had around 1400 miles on my Bighorns, and the only flat I ever got was blowing one off the rim in a rut I hit a little fast.

Dan is right on the 14" thing, except I will take that one step more, I wont ever ever run a 14" anything.

I won't go that far... my buddy just bought a set of Maxxis Viprs. They are still 6 ply, but made for the UTV market. They are slightly undersized with respect to BHs, but they look good and have 1 1/8" treads. He said the sidewalls are heavier than BH sidewalls. I watched them go over some rocky terrain and they didn't seem to collapse as much as BHs.

This question is usually a big debate........

Regular Big Horns are a very tough all around tire. Many on here are very happy with the Big Horn. However, I am not a fan. I like a more aggressive tire. The XTR's are my favorite tire of all but are very prone to side wall punctures. I now run GBC Grim Reapers. I am very satisfied.

If you are looking for a set of tires that will last for a few years then the Big Horns are it. If you want something with some grip........ Get something different Laughing

X2 see a lot of flat BH. I have P B Growlers love them 1300 miles on them no issues. Very little wear on them Great rim guards,good bite and ride super smooth. I see rockers get a lot of rips and chunks out of the lugs.
