We have og bighorns on the rhino and they do real good in anything from rock crawing in Moab to snow covered logging trails in Ohio. A friend has bighorn-2s on his commander and they do good also.

There are many opinions on this if you want your machine and Differentials/Axles to last longer and not loose any power. Go with the stock size and as close to stock weight as possible I have Maxxis Big Horn 2.0s and they perform very well in everything I have put them thru. But there are a lot of Ideas out there.

I agree with joes5091 stay as close to stock size as poss. and as light as poss. A heavy tire with a good bite will break stuff if your not careful.

have to agree, stay as close to stock as possible. for snow, to much of an aggressive tread is not as good from my experience in snow. just my .02 cents
