The originals are worn out. They are the original Maxis. Need new all terrain types. One of the biggest problems where I ride in North East mountainous logging skidder roads is traversing side hill roads with dips and dives. You really have to stay physical to keep the machine from flipping. I'm sure that new tires would help greatly. Been looking at the Maxis Bighorns, any suggestions?

The Bighorns have a great reputation. Where we ride, rocks are the problem, big sharp ones. I went with Sedona Ripsaws because the spaces between the knobs are smaller and offer better protection from sharp rocks. I haven't had them in much snow yet to know how they perform there.

Thanks Guys. Made a deal with the local shop for some unused takeoffs, Maxxis Bighorns.

I had them on for a little snow plowing last winter but we didn't have enough snow to really test them. They did very well with what little we had. The problem is that I've only had the RZR for 2 years and it's the only one I've driven. I don't know how a good snow tire is supposed to perform on one of these.

I just put a set of Kenda Bearclaws on my Foreman 450 this summer. Have been really happy with them for the price.
