Tires don't tear up a bike heavy thumbs do.

It sound like both of you just need zilla's. New get you some 26 or 27 zilla's. RD, get some 28's or 30's.

Just buy putting bigger tires on a atv causes premature wear and strain on drivetrain and suspension parts, tie rods, bushings, axles etc....wear these components out alot quicker...... and yes throttle control does play a big factor...........

Maxxis Bighorn Review (My opinion)

Took the brute out for a ride today with the new bighorn tires, first off, they ride real smooth on the hardpack, and hook up really well, very easy to powerslide the rear tires around the corners its an awesome feeling. It was a little bouncy ride at first, could of been due to the 7psi i was running all the way around on the tires, but i have heard the maxxis bighorn require a 60 mile break in period before they really smooth out. So got on some inclines and off camber trails, and was amazed on how well they gripped opposed to my mudites, the mudlites would tend to slide on off camber trails, not the bighorns they gripped awesome and that gave me more confidence too take on other steep inclines and off camber trails I wouldnt normaly do with the mudlite tires. Love the way they soaked up bumps and log crossings, just felt real smooth, and i can say the steering was alot more effortless compared to the mudlites. So i came to a crossing that was full of muddy water, i approached with caution in 2wd as i did not know how deep the hole was, of course i went first, i was the ginny pig. But eased thru it, not getting throttle happy or anything and the bighorns made it thru with ease, i crossed a few mud holes with no problems, of course they were not the biggest or deepest holes out there, they performed alot better in the mud than i thought they would, as I have read the only downfall to the bighorns are extreme muddy conditons.as they are not an extreme mud tire, next test was the sand and they performed awesome, they seem to float across the sand with ease, as with the mudlites it was difficult to get traction and the mudlites always wanted to dig themselves in, in the sand. All and all very happy with the maxxis bighorn tires, can wait to test out in the rocks out at marble falls but that will be another trip and give you guys my review as well.

as you guys know i picked up some brand spanking new 26" maxxis bighorn tires about three weeks ago on craigslist for $300. Well i was browsing around craigslist again, and came across a slightly used set of 26" itp terracross tires. Guy wanted $300, so i sent him an email and offered him $250 for them and he bit on them, i was just actually messing around and didnt think the guy would go for it but he did. So i couldnt pass them up and ended up buying them, they are in great shape and have 95% thread left if not better. I always wanted to run a 14" tire and wheel combo because i like the look of them, now need to shop for a 14" wheel, i was thinking motorsports alloy m12 diesel wheel in black. But it will be a while as the wallet needs to recover.

Ha Ha....nice score mate! With a bit of luck they still have that new tire smell lol. I like the m12 diesel wheel and also the vision buckshot in black.....think either one would look killer in 14"!
