mrbb BH"s will be a nice upgraded tire for you
as for being TALLER, this I am not 100% on, as I believe BH" tend to run SHORTER than there CLAIMED size!

feel free to do a internet search on this if you like, but if My memory recalls correctly they tend to run about an inch shorter than they claim, like a LOT of tires do from a LOT of brands

VERY very very few atv tire makers tires run true to there side wall sizing, it just IS what it is, , some run taller, some run shorter and FEW are correct is MY experience!

but any way it should be again a slight upgrade in ride and handling for you, and they do last a LONG time, and work well in most conditions,
so a GOOD overall tire for you for sure! IMO

Sounds like a good choice, Iíve also been looking to upgrade to some better traction tires, lots of good info on this thread...

Not sure where to find the data that none have lasted. Hundreds of reviews I read said they did just fine.
everyone I know that has bought knock off tires has gotten less mileage out of them including ME!

most folks get a few thousand miles out of original big horns even driving a lot on Pavement
so if you got ONLY 800, that too is a fraction of what originals get ?

there is a reason there cheaper, its a different rubber compound in the knock off over the originals! and that is where the wear and tear factor comes into play
rubber is NOT all the same, difference there matters in how long a tire wears!

there are many copy's of this tread and none to date have lasted as long as originals, and this is why they cost less
never said BAD tires, just they honestly don't last as long, , to some it matters to some not so much!

PeterS So, now I'm deciding between:
1) Carlisle 489 - bias, 4 PR, weight of four 61.8lbs
by specification they measure 25.3x7.4 (25x8) and 25.3x9 (25x10). So, they are narrower.

2) Kenda Bearclaw - bias, 6 ply, weight of four 76.38lbs
by specification they measure 24x8 (25x8) and 24x9 (25x10). So, they are lower.

3) Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 - radial, 6 ply, weight of four 82.2lbs
by specification they measure 25.3x8 (25x8) and 25.4x10 (25x10). So, they should by on the size.

No big difference on weight between Bearclaws and Bighorns - 6lbs, but it's about 10%.
Big difference on weight between 489s and Bighorns - about 30% more.

You might also look at the Kenda Bearclaws.

Zillas have a soft compound and are more of a mud tire.

I have a couple of ACT's I picked up in trade and they puncture easily.

I love Maxxis Mudbugs but they're a bit aggressive for your intended use.
Bearclaws are heavier then 489's. Bearclaws weight 17.4lbs (25x8) and 20.79lbs (25x10) against 489 14.1lbs (25x8) and 16.8lbs (25x10).
But on the other hand they are 6 ply.

I read lot of positive reviews on Bearclaws HTR. But they are heavy.
