Hey yall. I've been wondering about what tires i wanna get for the recon. I want bighorns 2.0s or mudlights. I can't decide what will be better for the terrain I ride in.
What kinda of tires do most of yall roll with? Likes or dislikes? I'm trying to get an idea on what will work best for me. If anyone has any input please commet.

The Bighorns are one of the best tires available for multi-purpose use. The Mud lite is also good at all terrains, but compared to each other, the Bighorns will shine better on hard packed, rocky terrain and the mudlite will shine more in the mud/wet stuff

Ok I ride in sloppy stuff and i do hard packed / rocky also. The rocky stuff i ride in isn't to bad but i do alot of playing in the mud and riding in snow. I also run on asphalt and concret here and there, will that wear the mudlights out very quickly?

Concrete is any atv tire's worst nightmare... I would go with the Mudlites for your needs...

Ok thanks. I think the mudlights will handle better for my conditions also.

Yeah, the Mudlites seem to last pretty good, I ride on a lot of asphalt, too.

For a Recon, I would definately recomend the mudlights. The recon is a great machine, but its going to need all the power it can get. I ran 22" mudlites on my old recon and they helped a lot in the mud and snow. They worked well in everything else too, except train tracks. I mainly used them for late fall/winter/spring, you know the muddy snow times. Lasted a long time. We got rid of the recon and I still use the mudlites for my z400 when I want to get muddy on it.

I have Bighorns on my Rincon. They are awesome. Selected because I wanted indestructible tires and I don't ride in the mud, just rocky / dirt areas, but they work great on mud too.

I have no experience with the Mud Lites, but the Bighorn has proven to stand up to its reputation as tough as nails. Harsh terrain, 1300 miles and no problems yet.

You would have a hell of a time finding Bighorns...they were sold out everywhere I looked. Make sure you get the XTR's...they're supposed to be a tougher Mud Lite than the regular.
