i looked hard at the bighorns because they are suppose to be very tough tires. i decided against them though because of their weight. instead i purchased itp xtr radials. very nice tires. i have had them on for a year and just returned from the paiute trail. my only complaint is that while fooling around on oem tires, you can easily kick the rear end out on corners. the xtrs get such great traction that the initial tendency is to go up on 2 wheels instead of sliding. it is more driving style than anything else but with oem tires, i could just sit there and slide all over the place. no flats or leaks and they dig in well under the conditions i ride, trails, rocks, mud, snow, sand.
I agree with shooterman. I have Mudlite Xtr's and they are a great trail tire. They get loads of grip on all surfaces; hard pack, loose dirt, stones, mud, and pavement. They also ride fairly smooth on pavement considering how agressive they are. I did consider Bighorns but could not get past the weight issue.
My husband runs Swamplights on his Rancher. They seem to do well. If your lookin or something light and inexpensive you might want to look at some dirtdevils. A girl we ride with has them on her Rubicon and they do well too. Possibly look at Mudbugs too.
you might want to look at the ITP Terracross radial.It's a super lightweight radial made for trail use.I'm more than likely going to go that route very soon as i just destroyed one of my swamp fox tires on a ride today....I somehow peeled a complete tread lug right off the tire casing and it's showing bare cords.......the rocks were very big and sharp,big as in the size of atv's and it was crawlin time.
Check out the Carlisle ACT or ACT XLR's if you want a bigger lug. The regular (.75") ACT's (All Conditions Tire) come as the up option on the Can-Am's and after trying my Dad's new 800 with them, I ordered a set of the 1.25" lug XLR's. If they ride anywhere close as well as the regular ACT's, I will love them and the traction is fantastic for a guy like me who only gets in the mud 3 or 4 times a season.
