notice any power loss with those 26" XTR's?

Every tire has a place. Right now, my stock tires are back-up tires in case I have a failure of either my Bighorns or my Mudlites. I actually have 3 sets of stock Rincon tires and rims. My dad uses one set on his Rancher 420AT for the summer, because he wanted a set of stock aluminum rims. Found them for $150 and they came with nearly new tires. I ran my original stock tires until they were bald, which if you have ever seen Rincon stock Ohatsu/Dunlaps it doesn't take long to wear them out. On most machines, in average conditions, most stock tires do good. They are light, and although 2ply and prone to slicing, they help absorb bumps better than stock tires. In dry conditions, where you do not require an aggressive tire, makes stock tires a good choice.

Yup ..truely was looking for a second set of stock rims to have spares for both bikes, and the new tires happened to come with 'em.
I'll wear through them pretty quickly, and be ready for the B'Horns soon enough.
