So my stock tires are wearing out on my 2016 SE, from what i've read the BigHorn tires seem to be one of the more popular replacement choices, I plan on re-using the stock SE rims. Excuse my ignorance, but what's the difference between the BigHorn OG's/2.0/3.0 tires? Also is there a different name for the OG's when looking to buy them?

I plan on keeping the tire size at 26"

The 2.0 is just a lighter, less durable version of the OG. They have smaller lugs, less plies and are made of a different/softer rubber compound.
The 3.0 is the newest version of the Bighorn lineup.
I still think the OG is the best of the bunch.

The OG are tougher and a great all-around tire. The 2.0 less so but still better than the cheap floppy Dunlops or Carlisles that they usually put on the base models. Because the 2.0 is lighter, it's great for people who don't ride aggressively and want light steering.

When looking to buy them, if you want O.G. ones just make sure it doesn't have "2.0" or "3.0" after the name. With the 3.0, the fronts are a different tread pattern than the back so it's more obvious.

See the picture below for what came back when I searched for "Maxxis Bighorn". Pretty straightforward.

I appreciate the info, if I go OG's do I have to add clutch or shim mods?

Have to? Naw. Some people do it anyway to get a small performance boost, but with 26" you'll be fine.

When there was just the O.G. or 2.0 choice, the O.G.'s had the white lettering.
I haven't seen the 3.0 selection.
You can ride the new tires a couple trips to determine if you want to improve the low end pull.

Just a side note the Bighorn 3.0 is listed as a Side by side tire on Maxxis website where as the OG and the 2.0 are listed under utility ATV tires. the 3.0 is listed as being 18psi on average where as the OG and 2.0 is 7psi on average. I am betting the 3.0's are much heavier but can't say for sure.
