I'd go with the MOTO MTC's they'll out perform and outlast the Big Horn 2 to 1 not too mention they just look good.

Kenda Bounty Hunters here and love them - they wear good too,but are directional.I've rode on these tires flat,and off the bead, two times now,over rocky terrain,filled them back up,and they still keep kicking butt.Although I would like to try the Bighorn 2 or Grim Reapor tires.These are 14" x 8" wheels, 9" x 26" front and 11" x 26" rear.

my vote is for Big Horns, if they can run on my RZR XP and not get flats there tough will all the added weight of the SxS imho

moto MTC ! pretty deep, but close spaced tread pattern. they have nice side lugs too. very simmular to the Big Horns. i would recomend them for trail riding. another super tough long lasting tire is the Highlifter MST. a little more aggresive, but they ride better than you would think and they wont let you down.

From what he has said, I dont think those are the tires for him. They are just too heavy and possibly too agressive.

Bighorns are great all around tires. I'm going to pick up a set of 28s for my 900 soon. The 26s were too small for my taste and just didnt look right. A lot of the guys on the RZR Forum swear by the Pitbulls, even over the bighorns, but they are heavy. Also from what I have read, the Moto MTCs are also good all terrain tires but they are also heavy. I picked up a 28x10x14 Moto MTC and I swear it weighed more than my 26x12x12 Bighorn Mounted on a wheel.

BTW For such a small tire like a 26 I'd stick with a 12" rim.

I just installed a set of 26" Dirt Commanders and they didn't seem to rob too much power even with an 8 ply rating

have you checked out the Sun-F tires? they have a tire similar to the maxxis Bighorn, I have some on my Can-am Maverick, a 12 ply run-flat option, GPS Offroad Products sells them, they even got them tested and approved by the U.S. Military.

I'd love to hear more on the sun F, weight ,sizes and , how they wear. I was thinking grim reapers next but I'm intrigued by the run flat. I must have 15 holes in my mudlites, I keep seeing little green goo seeping out of them. That stuff works great, they they havent gone flat w all the holes since I put a bottle in. nkawierider's review on the reapers had me pricing them out. In the end of my long search it was down to bighorns or reapers.

IIRC the Dominators are made by Sun F. There was a thread on here where someone bought Dominators from Super ATV and they said Sun F on the sidewalls

I just put 28" Moto MTC's on my Ranger. They have nice deep lugs that clean out and perform well in the mud, but they ride nice and smooth on the hard pack. Not sure how tough they are, only got about 20 miles on them, but they held up pretty well on my first ride with the heavy Ranger.
