I found the big horns to be a very hard compound rubber. Don't seem to mould around the terrain bit sit on top and skip, hop & bounce, especially on loose, dry, gravel type terrain.

I did however find them very puncture resistant.

 

That being said.. Mega Mayhem's are very similar on dry, loose terrain. Rubber compound is to hard, they don't mould over the terrain at all. 

They also suffer badly from cuts to the leading edge of the lugs on hard, dry surfaces.

 

How do outlaws fair on hard, loose ground guys? Do they get cut lugs also?

 

Yep the lugs get rounded over pretty good. Outlaws are pretty soft and grippy. At least the originals. The OL2's are a lot stiffer. I did have a set for a short period but can't speak to the durability of them.

Any of y'all ever run Wanda P341's?

 

No but they remind me a bit of the old Innova Mud Gears and have that dirt devil look to them.

I have titan 589's on mine now about 12 yrs LOL
 and they have been pretty bullet proof, to sharp rocks, stumps,coal piles, ash piles, mud , snow pavement gravel roads, you name it they petty much see it, 

I don;t deep mud ride, but have many times been in deep mud by accident , in swamps that seemed shallow or solid and then got deep fast

 never not had tires not self clean to push me thru, but I have run out of ground clearance a few times and got stuck that way

 several thousand miles on tires and still at about 50% tread, so cannot ask for more from a tire for me and the use I do with my atv!

 

 

 

The 589's are another legendary old school tire, recently brought back to life by a company called Legacy Distributing and even with new sizes. I think if I wanted something similar to a Mud Bug in a 30" tire I'd look at Legacy 589's.

I run Mudlite AT's, 6-ply rating, I don't do mud ( least not 4 ft deep! ), I ride on gravel, sand, dirt, snow, just normal rides, I love them for my style of riding. I wont complain on who runs what, to each their own, I just know what works for me.

Your riding conditions are very similar to mine.  Have used Kenda Bear Claws and found them good for what I do.  The original Bear Claws were actually undersized to the advertised size.  The Bear Claw EVO's are as advertised height wise, not quite as wide as advertised though.  I like this tire.

Carlisle Trail Wolf tires were very good on my old 350 4Trax.

The OEM tires on the early 350's lasted for many years. They were 100% better than the OEM's to-day.

I put some Maxxis Big Horns 2.0 on my 99 300. I am liking them so far. A lot better than the tires I had on my ride before

So are you saying the Maxxis Bighorn 2.0's aren't a good tire?  I'm asking in all seriousness, this last Can Am I picked up has the Maxxis 2.0's on it.  My brother  bought them for his '12 Rancher 420 about 5 years ago and he loves them.  Granted we don't do any mud riding but they seem to have plenty of traction on our rocky mountain trails.  After 5 years they still look great, he does tons of plowing and uses it for field work as well. Just curious,  I thought for a Radial tire they would be pretty smooth riding and grip well, I didn't get a chance to get out with this machine before Winter hit and the trails  closed, guess I'll find out next spring.

I had Maxxis Bighorn 2.0s on my Brute Force I used to own. Loved them for an all around tire. They were a great trail tire.

I have maxxis bighorns on mine here with almost 5k on them and they look like new... decent tire in the summer but they suck in the snow.

Interesting, my brother has been using them for 5 years and he does a ton of plowing and has never mentioned one thing about them not performing well. He does 3 really long driveways And we had monster snow last year.  Almost all my riding is done in the summer anyway  Lol . I'm just glad I didn't  Have to buy them. They're pretty expensive. And for the plowing that I do I've just been using the stock Carlisle's that came on my other 570. I think if I was going to do a lot of plowing I would just buy a couple of sets a chains.😉

I have a set of Maxxis Zillas that have been awesome in snow, (even for plowing) sand, mud, hard pack and haven’t really found a situation I didn’t like them.

I agree fully. Have them for 3 years and 2000 miles on them and they are great for everything. Have 27s on a 2015 Rubicon.
