i have heard the superswamper tsl's are good in moutains, mud, snow and wear good. they only got 3/4" tread though.

maxxis bighorns are highly rated but heavy. i personally use itp xtr radials with great satisfaction. the itp terracross look promising.
The bighorns are great but heavy and expensive. An alternative that has almost the exact same tread as the bighorn is the GBC Dirt Tamer. I have a friend that has dirt tamers and one that has the bighorns and they are almost identical and the Dirt Tamer is much cheaper. Only drawback is the dirt tamer is a bias-ply tire and not a radial.

I've been happy with my GBC Dirt Devils.Over 600 miles on them and they still look like new.They seem to work for me in all types of terrain.

Don't worry about the weight so much, everything weights more than the stockers. Maxxis Bighorns are heavier than most, the 26" of the Bighorns weight 1.5 lbs more than the 27" ITP Mud Lites. Bighorns are not nearly as good in the mud, but are great for "true" rockcrawlin, but who on here is really doing that? For trailriding on mountains I would say its a toss-up.
