im still all for my artrax. i think that anyone that wants a big horn they are over rated and highly priced. i love my tires. free shipping to my door. and 45 a front tire 55 a rear. it was only 256.48 after tax. also i like them because they are alot flatter tire and not rounder like the big horn which make these great in mud and sliding. they sell them at motosport.com. the only draw back is they only come in 25/8/12 and 25/10/12

Have you ever owned a set of Big Horns?
I'm all for saving money but sometimes its better to pay more and get what you want. I'll keep my Big Horns, they are radials, they flex well, ride smooth, hook up plenty enough for my riding needs. I also have a set of Bighorn 2.0 with over 1100 miles and are showing very little wear.

Just thought I would add this for all those who complain about there tires acting up at high speeds. While they aren't in the same class as laws or backs, the zillas are very stable at speed. I have 30x11's up front and this weekend had them up to 80ish and they were very smooth and stable. They might as well have been car tires.

no i have not own a set of big horns but alot of my buddy's have and yes they are a good tire and you can get a couple thousand miles out of a set. but when i was tire shopping i needed cheap and anything other then stock was good. these were the cheapest tire i could find and they only offer them in one size. they happened to be a good set of tires i do mostly trail and racing alot of road and the mud i come to on trails and i havent worn down a cm yet. im not saying the big horns are junk. just overly priced for my likings

I have the Mudlite XL's and I don't like the shake at speed or the shake a low speed on hard surfaces. Lots of gap between the lugs which is great in the mud but not so good if you want a smooth ride. So a Radial will be my next tire me thinks. I have a winch for those times I can't make it through the gnarly mud so a trail tire is more suited for what I do and my next purchase of tire!

Personally, I think that Highlifter Outlaw MST's are the best all around tire. I found my old ones to be better than my old Zillas, Mudlites, Mudlite XTR, and Swamp Fox Plus.

As much as it pains me to back their product (so you know this is an honest & unbiased opinion) I have to agree that the MST is a BIG game player in all-around tires. I rolled on some 26x12's for a while on the brute and really liked them a lot.

ive got a set of mudzillas and they are very agressive they shake really hard. lotta grip in the bad suff but dont think its worth the nerve damage in the long run. ive heard alot about the 29.5 swamplites and thinkin about tryin them out. definately cant beat the price and size. how much riding do you do in the peanut butter you know?
