PostSubject: Which tires?   Fri Mar 26, 2010 10:16 pm

I almost hate to ask this question becauseof all of the opinions out there, BUT Very Happy ...Which tire do any of you recommend for a stock Honda Rubicon, the Maxxis Big Horn 25x8x12 front and 25x10x12 rear,the Maxxis Big Horn 2.0 25x8x12 front and 25x10x12 rear, or the Mud Lite XTR 26x9x12 front and 26x11x12 rear? The reason I am looking at a 26" Mud Lite is that they run a little small to size and Iknow the Big Horns run a little big to size. I've been running Maxxis Big Horn 26x9x12 front and 26x12x12 rear but I think these are a little too big for the type of riding I do. (I've also had the bounce Issues in the past) I Know that Big Horns are known for rock climbing, but a friend of mine is running the XTR's and could climb up a wall. Mud is not a big thing for me but I want to be able to to climb up the rock trails better. Sorry for the long post and thanks for any replies!

I've had one ride on my 25" BigHorn Originals and could tell a world of difference over the stock tire I have run in the past. Much smoother ride, easier to steer and the traction is unreal.... so my vote goes for BigHorns.Thumb

Between the 2 tires you listed....there is no comparison. The Original BigHorn is worth its weight in gold compared to Mud Lites. Mud lights are GREAT in muddy swampy conditions, but they wear out quickly.

So, for me easy choice. Bighorns. BTW, I just bought my second set and have over 4 thousand miles on the first set with quite a bit of asphalt riding.

Also, Smiley turned us onto a good deal. BikeBandit.com has them for a sweet price right now. Plus if you go to Bing.com and set up a cash back account you can get a 10 bucks back in a few months.

I have 25" BH 2.0 on my Rincon. They get way better traction than the stock tires and it steers a little easier. I noticed that the rears are wider and the fronts are narrower than the original BH. The rears also look a little smaller in diameter than the originals, but I am not certain of that. I have only been on a few rides so I don't know how durable they are. I rode a couple of miles down a paved road at about 60 mph and didn't notice any wobble or vibration.

I have three sets of xtr's on our rzrs and 4wheelers. I would definetly NOT recommend them,seems like every time we ride we cut a sidewall, and they dont seem to ride very smooth. I will be getting bighorns when these where out.

For durability it seems Bighorns are the way to go.

Around here we have a name for Mudlites "Flat-lites".

Mudlites are better suited for the mud, not rocks or long term use.

Just check most of the regulars signatures on here, Majority go with Maxxis Bighorns.

I had them on my outlander 400( had mudlites as well) and now have the 2.0 Bighorns on my 650.

Compared to the Mudlites, bighorns are like night and day. Very long lasting tread life and They ride real well on rocks, hardpack, asphalt, and gravel. Plus i've only seen one sidewall puncture compared to the many of the ITP tire brand "Which makes Mudlites"

ITP = Insert Tire Plug.

I have to agree with everyone on the BH. I have had mud lites as well. I did not have any issues with them other than they rode terrible. I put close to 1000 miles on mine at Windrock with no plugs but with that said, I would hands down take the horns over the ML.

I have the XTRs and love them. This is my second set, sold last wheeler with them. As for BH being the best for side wall, well we pluged one today and it holds plugs just as good as any tires out there.

Thanks for all the info! Is anyone running the Big Horn 2.0 in the 26" size? From what I've seen, the 25" 2.0 tires run a little short. Ground clearance is an issue for me due to the sra on the Rubicon. Also, Does anyone know the weight of the Regular Big Horns vs. the 2.0's?

I opted for the bighorn 2.0's in a 26". They actually measure 26". I am running 7 psi in mine.

as for the weights compared between the regular and 2.0's I don't know off hand.

But i do know these are lighter than the original bighorns.

Reg BH:

Rears 26x12x12 30.0 / 26x11x14 27.5


BH 2.0

Fronts 26x9x12 21.2 / 26x9x14 21.2

Rears 26x12x12 27.7 / 26x11x14 27.2




I included both sets in a 12 inch and a 14 inch wheel as far as weights are concerned.

Does a little over 1-2 pounds per tire really make a difference?
