Best tires for pavement? Maxxis Ceros vs Big Horn 2.0's?

Hey guys - sold my giant 30 inch Mudlites and the ITP C Series wheels yesterday. Now I need to find a set of wheels/tires to replace them. I'm still in between getting 12 or 14 inch wheels - I suppose its dependent on the tire I get. Maxxis Cero's only come in a 14 inch wheel while the Big Horn 2.0's come in a 12 and 14. I however am lost on which tire to get. I've looked up various reviews - others swear by the Big Horn's while some say the Cero's flatter SUV type tread is better for pavement. I use my Rhino mainly for utility work transitioning between grass and hard pavement and need something that will provide a smooth ride. Won't be using it in mud or sand and I live in Florida so no snow either. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

for durability i would go with a regular car/truck tire... they last forever.

to do this you will need to run a 14in wheel or 15in wheel like the diesel sports. run a Bfg A/t if you can still find some. there are other tire companies that still make a tire for 14in wheel.

Can you point me in the right direction? I seem to be finding only 30 inch and larger from every car/truck manufacturer.

Was also considering these ITP Carlisle however someone reviewed these and said his Big Horn's were way smoother on pavement.

25" ITP Carlisle All Trail ATV Big Foot Kits

The Goodyear Rawhide's also look like a decent comparison to the offerings from Maxxis:

I would go ITP UltraCross tires - but they only come in 15". I've read/heard they are badass on hardpack/asphalt.

Yeah, they seem like a great looking tire, but they're slightly out of my budget.

These are what I run on my street legal Rhino. I love them and they work great in the mud.

DOT Approved ATV Tire and Wheel Kit, Interco Super Swamper TSL

They also have the BF's you are looking for. Best thing is they ship for free and super fast. Best prices I have found

I have pics if you want to see them on my Rhino
