I am just looking at tires right now! i do mostly trail and mud. But I don't want 27" or bigger right now. I want to get more miles to a tank of gas since right now I get about 40 miles to a tank of gas. This spring I will be taking my lift kit off and getting something smaller than my 27" Outlaw MST's and I don't want smaller Outlaw MST's either. Right now I am looking at the:

1. 26" ITP Terracross XD

2. 26" Big Horns or 2.0

3. 26" ITP 589 M/S

Where to go or what to do!

I will be back soon!

From what I've heard, the Terracross and Bighorns will have similar ride and handling. The Terra's are a little lighter, the 'Horns will last about twice as long. I have about 4000 miles on my 27" 'Horns and they are in great shape. A friend has 6000 miles on his 26" 'Hornes and they, too, look to be in excellent shape. Of course, he rides a Grizzly so he can't abuse the tires like I can on my Brute!



I love the 'Horns! Great all around trail tire that does very good in snow, quite good in mud. They are not, and never will be, a true "mud" tire.

I have a couple of friends with Terras and they like 'em a lot.

I haven't ridden the 589s. From what I've heard they ride very hard on pavement or packed conditions--lots of vibration from the lugs. A friend had them and said they actually hooked up TOO well--he didn't like them because he couldn't get them to spin when he wanted/needed to break it loose. He also said they seem to be a hard compound that lasts a long time. I'm guessing they wouldn't be a good trail tire, but would be great for mudding.

I'll probably stick with the Bighorns when the time comes. Unless, of course, something even bettter comes along!

Hope this helps!

Ride Safely, Responsibly, Ethically, Legally.
In that order.
After that, Have Fun!

I may be SLOW, but I'm not very efficient, either!

Like these?

Out of those three I would flip a coin on either the big horns or the terracross and buy them.

Out of your choices I also agree, I would spend my money on the horns first, then the crosses and last the 589&#39;s last. That&#39;s just my personal opinion. All three are good tires!

Kinda like the look of those Motos. Got a lot of meat! And not so far apart that you would feel it on hard stuff.

My next ones were going to be either Terras or Big Horns, but I see I have to add another to the list.

Good looking tire also! But I noticed they didn&#39;t list the weight. It said 8 ply! may be pretty heavy. Ususally if your a pretty light tire you advertise it heavily. Since they don&#39;t list they may be on the opposite end???
