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 $$$$$. So these cost less then most.
haha i just got a set of 285/70/17 bighorns mounted tuesday and have ab 300mi on em so far but theyre not bad n the rain nowhere near as loud as sum tires ive been around and i paid less than $900 for m/b tax and tires and all
havnt had em n the mud or anything yet but ill let u know how that goes
I had Bighorns on for about two years before switching to a bigger tire (Cooper STT) and all I can say is that it's a very strong tire. I used it on tarmac, rocks, sand & mud and it's just terrific, a bit noisy maybe due to its hard compound but its all-round performance was very good (never got stuck).
Bighorns hardly show any signs of tears or damage after two years whereas my STTs which are made of a softer compound show more wear (and I've only had them on for one year).
I'd like to try the BFGoodrich KM2 but to me the Maxxis Bighorn is just indestructible.
Sorry to bring this thread back, can anyone vouch for these tires on the road that is snow covered?? Also has anyone had these AFTER owning either a BFG M/T or Goodyear MT/R to compare road noise?? On past jeeps i've built up, i've owned Super Swamper Trxus M/T, Mickey Thompson MTZ's, Kumho M/T's, BFG KM2's, and Goodyear MT/R with Kevlar. So far the goodyear was quietest but i would like to save a little $$$ and the bighorn is right up my alley price wise.
wow literally just got outta the snow/ice we got last night in SC with my bighorns. there really good i think, in 4wd the truck feels great and in 2wd i have to gas it a little to drift so all round lotsa fun!
