Are you going to change out the stock bighorn 2.0 tires or shred them to the bone lol

I know 8 ply tire is a good way to go if you want durability

I might get some Tensor Regular Tires for the trails in AZ & CA & UT

Whats your pick or favorite tires on the trails ?

Wellllll, that was a bit of a for-profit hijack. :p

Anyway, I would love to get a set of Mongrel-like tires for most Arizony-ish riding…



I love the looks of them and they go great over hard-pack and the occasional pavement.

However, we connect trails with so much sand wash that when the stock Big Horn 2.0s get sufficiently worn, I'll replace them with Bighorn 1.0 tires.

Dirt Commanders are my new favorite. 8 ply, 7/8 deep tread and only $90 each for my size. Now they wore quick at Windrock but we had fun! Hehehe

For performance and traction in the loose terrain I ride, I also prefer Dirt Commanders. They are bias ply, so not quite as smooth as some radials for you road riders, but didn't make much of a difference for me. I'm either going to go with them or maybe ITP Blackwaters in 30" on my next machine

The original Bighorns are a great tire but I think the tallest size is only 29 inches.
Hopefully they'll start producing taller versions for these newer rigs.
I think the Mongrels in a 30 or 32 inch height will look great on these with so much fender area.

BTW I think TENNESSEE should pay some sort of commission for that shameless garage sale post, lol.

GROWLER ARE GREAT TIRES BUT THEY DON'T MAKE A 15" TlRE. l WANT 15" RIMS BECAUSE THE 14" RIM WERE TO CLOSE TO THE BRAKE CALIPERS. BLACK WATERS ARE GREAT TIRES TOO BUT I'M GOING TO BUY SOME RUN FLAT TIRES.

I've been running the 30" Mongrels for two years now and love them. They are great in the desert, great in the rock, they do ok in the sand but that is definitely not their strength.

Are beadlocks really necessary. I run regular Method wheels and never lose air or lose a bead. 3 guys in our group run beadlocks and I swear all their tires leak air like crazy. What's the real skinny here?
BEADLOCKS ARE A LOT BETTER ON TRAILS. WHEN YOU BUST ONE ON A ROCK YOU DON'T GET MUD IN YOUR TlRE. IT DON'T BREAK LOSE FROM THE RIM. JUST PUG IT AND GO.
