    Here Goes....
    I would like to have some member imput as to the BEST ALL AROUND tire for trail, occasional mud, etc. Does anyone reccomend a certain brand/type? I know I may be opening a can of worms here but I would personally like to get some feedback from the PRC TEAM. I have stock 12" aluminum crusher rims on my 09 HD. I do alot of hunting, feeding, and some trail riding mostly on hard pan and dirt. Our ranch has several roads that we upkeep in order to get to where we are going. Plase provide pics of possible prospects and provide the best place to purchase. Thanks in Advance!

    Big Horns are hard to beat for all around use. They are a significant upgrade over OEM, carry weight well, wear well, have a smooth ride, provide excellent traction on rocks and hard pack, and better than OEM tire traction in the mud.

    Call Matt or Maurice at ATV Oufitters (their contact info' is in our sponsors' section) and they will hook you up.

    Thanks Commander, I had a set on my 2005 Honda Foreman and Loved them. It has been a while, and I wasn't sure if anything has topped them yet. I know there are alot of reproductions of that design by other makers and such, I just was not sure how those compared. The Bighorns have been a leader for a long time....If it ain't broke , don't fix it, I guess!

    Yeah, there are a couple of different Bighorn copies out there and I believe they are a little cheaper, but not by much.....and I also don't think that either is a radial. I've heard good things about those too, but like you said, "if it ain't broke....."

    ESSEX manufacturing. A bit pricing but the best ive had. I have three machines and they are by far lasting the longest. we use them on a deer ranch in the mountains of PA and they have about a 1/2 " rim guard that i havent seen on any other tires. just my opinion.

    I will also vote for BigHorns. I was never a believer (always ran mud tires) until I joined this forum and was persuaded to try them by the slew of pleased customers here. I have been VERY pleased with these tires on my Ranger. I would absolutely buy them again.

    Thanks for the advice Team, the Bighorns, as I thought, seem to be the ones to beat!

    Ok since no one on this site recognizes the Essex tires and I destroyed one of my pit bull rockers in the first 8 hours of use I guess I'll try these big horns. Lol. Or maybe order one to see if it really compares.

    Three machines running Essex for three year and never a flat and our machines run 7 days a week 52,weeks a year I'm starting to believe that's performance that can't be beat.

    I can't really make any suggestions for what is best but I can tell you I haven't had very good luck running 27" mud light xtr's. I have had too many major flats running these tires, both sidewall punctures and in the center of the tread face. It's probably more to do with being the wrong tire for the conditions but I never had these problems with the original mud lights on my atv. I ride in an area that has a lot of sharp blast rock and through slashes with lots of sharp sticks ect. I think that in these types of conditions, a less open tread pattern is ideal. I think the weight of a ranger is too much to resist puncture on the tire casing itself. From my experience I think it is much more important to think about your riding conditions with a ranger vs an atv because of the wieght. I would think that the bighorn tires would work well in my location, I also like the looks of the pitbull growlers. I have also heard very good things about Essex utv tires but they are heavy. I hope this helps!
