After much research here I have decided I am going to get new bighorn Tires for my Rhino 700 in the stock tire sizes 25x10-12 rear and 25-8-12 front. These will go on my stock rims.

The choice is btw the radials (models M917 and M918) and the 2.0 (models MU09 and MU10). Note the Maxxis website says the 2.0 is a radial also.

Per website:

Radials:
“The tread pattern and wide footprint give this radial exceptional traction, and the Bighorn’s shoulder lugs protect the sidewalls. Solid raised white lettering gives thistire an attractive look. With radial construction, recreational riders as well as ATV racers will immediately appreciate the ride quality and comfort. Mike Penland won his 10th GNCC Utility Stock Championship on the Bighorn radial.

· Radial construction offers a significantly smoother ride over rough trails
· Extra lugs on the shoulder protect the sidewall and rim
· Raised white lettering on one side
· Tire is suitable for desert, dirt, and rock application”

Bighorn 2.0:
"Based on the legendary Bighorn, the new Bighorn 2.0 is a lightweight version that mimics the tread design of the original, with a slimmer profile. Radial construction provides better shock absorption, allowing for a smoother ride. The non-directional pattern provides predictable cornering and claws up roots and rocks, creating optimum climbing confidence. The Bighorn 2.0 boasts a 6-ply rating, offering the durability that you’ve grown to expect from Bighorn tires. "

Price is about the same for either on ebay ($550-$600 for shipped set) where I found the best prices (if anyone knows where to get better price let me know).

I would like to know from those who have first hand knowledge which one they would recommend.

Thx, Jim

I dont know what OG is but the 2.0s have less tread and do wear out quicker becasue of this. I have 2.0s on my Rhino.

Thank You all!!

The og were my first choice but did not realize you could still get them since the Maxxis web site does not show them.

That is why I love this forum!!

What terrain do you mainly ride to say they wear out quicker ? Obviously staying off pavement they will last longer but thats easier said than done.( for me anyway) since I drive it to get to the timber.

update

Been hunting 3 times now with the new OGs and VERY happy with them.
They give a smoooother ride and a couple inches more clearance over the rocks vs. the worn out stock tires which will extend the life of my skids. Maybe the best "mod" I have done.

I was surprised at the 2.0's I recently installed as they ride smooth and are ALOT quieter over stock ( when on pavement )
