I have the bighorns and love them so far. On road they are well mannered with very little road noise ( comparable to a BFG MT). They stick like glue and have tuff side walls. Now off road I can't say yet our desert season doesn't start for another month and a half due to heat. But for now I am really happy especially since it's the cheapest 34" tire I could find, I am pleasently surprised.

Siping are the little cuts in the tire. The more, the better onroad. Too much can cause chunking though offroad.

IMO every tire should have siping, unless it's offroad only. It makes a world of difference in rain and ice.

An example would be that the BFG M/T doesn't come with siping and my STTs do come with siping (you can get the BFGs siped though in a shop).

My bad forgot the other question. The Bighorns are sipped as you probably know.

Has anyone seen a review or have any info on Big O Tire's BIG FOOT X/T. I have never seen much on Big O Tires, are they not worth the money?
THANKS

I finaly got my BFG M/Ts on and was amazed. I was used to hearing people say they were loud and didnt handle good in the rain. First night out it was raining and I was doing about 40-45mph in the rain and they handled amazing. They aren't that loud but are a tad bit louder than the cooper A/Ts I was rocking. Have to test them offroad still but so far they are well worth the money IMO.

from what i can see, the kumho kl71 is excellent. i havea good friend with a wj with them who wheels with me all th time. i ahve seen them in action many times and they are very impressive. in our area, the mud is very sticky and deep but i haven't seen the tires pack up at all. they are durable as well and quiet. he's had them over 10k miles and they are wearing very evenly and are still quiet.
i don't think there's a better tire for the money. i'd have them too, but i got the tires i have now for $300 for the set so went with them. when they are worn out though, i'll have the kumhos.

I will say, for a wheeling rig, I will NEVER purchase a tire that's not made by Interco (not including the Thornbirds, they're just silly. ) I'm running LTBs right now and they are super sticky, I'm not into mud, hate the junk, but in the rocks, Swampers are pretty dang cool. My cousin is running 35" TrXus MTs on his Wrangler and wishes he went back to the TSLs (so long as you don't mind the pizza cutter styling). Even on the road, I went from TSL Radials to LTBs, and next are either some bias 36" TSLs (after D44 F/R and Currie steering) or IROKs. I've seen IROKs and have super impressed with them also.

I'm lovin' my Kumhos - They were a little wander-y in loose snow on the highway, but deep stuff they seem to grab really good. Not bad at all on ice.

About 10-11k on them so far, and they're wearing very well.
