Well im going to be getting some new tires soon and was wondering if anyone was running these and what they thought. There are not to many tires to pick from on the Island and most are $$$$$. So these cost less then most.

MT-762 Bighorn

I had Bighorns on for about two years before switching to a bigger tire (Cooper STT) and all I can say is that it's a very strong tire. I used it on tarmac, rocks, sand & mud and it's just terrific, a bit noisy maybe due to its hard compound but its all-round performance was very good (never got stuck).
Bighorns hardly show any signs of tears or damage after two years whereas my STTs which are made of a softer compound show more wear (and I've only had them on for one year).

I'd like to try the BFGoodrich KM2 but to me the Maxxis Bighorn is just indestructible.

the tread pattern on them is really good and not to loud, i have them in a different brand called mud dawgs. They are identical and long lasting

Sorry to bring this thread back, can anyone vouch for these tires on the road that is snow covered?? Also has anyone had these AFTER owning either a BFG M/T or Goodyear MT/R to compare road noise?? On past jeeps i've built up, i've owned Super Swamper Trxus M/T, Mickey Thompson MTZ's, Kumho M/T's, BFG KM2's, and Goodyear MT/R with Kevlar. So far the goodyear was quietest but i would like to save a little $$$ and the bighorn is right up my alley price wise.

i ran 32x11.5x15 bighorns on my 99 wrangler. they were great in rain and snow, even snow covered streets.

they wore quite fast though, i rotated them every 4-5K miles....
