Bighorns on 2016 grizzly

I think I've decided on bighorn 2.0s due to the ogs being more expensive and heavier I believe I'm going with 26x9x12 on the front and 26x11x12 on the back I thought about going the same size all the way around so I could rotate them but not sure if that's a good idea but I'd love to see some pics of someone with this setup or something similar thanks!

I've gone with 26x9x12 all around before. Worked pretty well for me. I had aftermarket wheels though, so that made them stick out a little more in the back than they would on stock wheels. On stock wheels they might look a little narrow. You won;t lose much traction though. Unless you need every last bit of it you'll be fine.

I'd re-evaluate that decision. The 2.0's wear faster according to several members who have experience with them. You'll get more for your money with OG's. They wear like iron. The added weight is not an issue at all.

I'll second okbear.
The 2.0 version is nowhere near the OG in any catagory. You'll literally get more than double the mileage out of a set of OG Bighorn's, and have way better performance/traction as well.

Why do the 2.0s wear so much faster I know the tread blocks are not as thick to save weight but still doesn't seem like they would wear that much faster on my big bear I had artrax ctx tires I put 1500 miles on them and they showed very little wear I would go with them again but they only come in 25 I thought about going with some more knockoff bighorns but I may just bite the bullet for a set of ogs

Artrax CTX in bias ply are only available up to 25's...but are available in 26's if you get the radial version, and only cost a few bucks more. I just did a full set of 26-9-12's all around on my 450 for $71.24 a tire. They measure true to size. I posted pics in my plow angle mechanism thread.

Edit: here is the link: Artrax CTX Radial Tire | MotoSport looks like they're actually down a bit in price from what I paid a couple weeks ago

26 Bighorn OG's 9 inch front 12 inch rear.
They have 2100 km (1300miles) and they show almost no wear at all.

The lugs are double the width plus deeper than the 2.0's
That alone would make them last longer.

Plus I hear so so many stories about 2.0's. With plugged sidewalls .

The OG lugs are wider and deeper. I aldo suspect (but cannot confirm) they are made of a different rubber compound. The OG's also have more plies of rubber in the tread and sidewalls, making them much more durable and puncture resistant.

I tried out Tusk Trilobites. They were junk. Weaker than the BH 2.0. Have not tried the Duro.

GBC Dirt Commanders are pretty good. They're bias-ply instead of radial so they're stiffer which helps protect the sidewalls, but not as good for ride comfort.
Haven't tried them personally but a couple guys I ride with have them.

I went with the Artrax specifically because there were hundreds of positive reviews on them and almost zero negative reviews. Not many guys, if any, on GC has tried them, but I figured it was worth the chance.

I'll report back specifically on the tires once I get 2k miles on them, so in about 4 years. Or before then if I have any issues or am impressed by anything specific about them. Just went on a week ago and 0 miles on them so far.

I owned Duro Power Grips............................can you say GARBAGE!? The ONLY redeeming thing about them is they wear extremely well. That said, as soon as they wore the sqareness off the lug you (or I) loose 75% of your traction .................. but the price is right! Although they ARE better than most stockers. IMHO they are not a good tire.
