Maxxis Tires question

Has anyone used Maxxis Bighorn Tires on their Jeep? Their fairly inexpensive compared to the Wranlger MT's

I liked mine. 32/11.50R15 They have a great bite and handle pretty decent on the street.

Maxxis has a pretty good reputation. The Big Horns seem to be a pretty good tire from all the reviews I've read.

I've been running the bighorn in a 35x12.50x15
I whent through two sidewalls in two trails
I cut both tires climbing out of a Vnotch that I sliped into and as you climb out of the Vnotch there was an undercut in the rock
But I do run them in some pretty heavy sharp rock every weekend

but other then that they drive good on the street grip as well as MTR's in the rocks

I have heard of reports of people getting 35,000+ miles on them

On a Jeep, they do pretty well as far as wear goes.

heres a pic of my tires after wheeling them in some heavy rock every weekend for about 2 months

as you can see they dont chunk out to bad


and this tire I was able to save even though I cut the sidewall
(the tube thats in it now has been holding up pretty good)


and here they are new





I picked up all 4 35" tires for $650 with free shipping

it costed me a total of $25 to try and save that tire where a new tire is $185
you can only buy the tires at $160 a peace if you get all 4 at once

the tube is holding up pretty well I run 10 psi on the trail and havent had a problem with the tube yet

A friend of mine cut the sidewall on 2 bfg's he was able to save them and put a tube in them and ended up runing them until they were worn out

Wow! Interesting inputs. I've always loved my dueler revos. But with my lift kit on the way, I wanted to buy the Wrangler MT/R. 5 Tires would run me $1,060 Installed.....<~ That's a lot of moeny for tires. I'm not sure what I want to do yet. Thanx for all the input guys. The pcitures will be up next wee of the new lift.
