they won't, but they will also NOT last as long as the originals bighorns
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!

The stock Maxxis tires were bald in 800 miles, but I'm pretty sure asphalt had a lot to do with it.


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!

I think I will go with BH 2.0 as they:
- SHOULD be bigger, as I want
- are 6 ply
- are radial
- are "light". respectively not so heavy. On the other hand, as they are radials (should ride smoother then bias type), I hope I will have better ride comfort or at least not worse.
- and should have good durability.

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

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
