The Bighorn radial adds to an already impressive line-up of serious light truck tires offered by Maxxis. Judging by appearance, there’s no question that the Bighorn is an aggressive off-road tire. Judging by design, it’s exceptionally engineered to meet the challenges of the most demanding off-road enthusiasts.


- Staggered shoulder lugs for added traction in uneven terrain.
- Deep tread blocks for self-cleaning capabilities.
- Pinned for studs.
- Excellent traction in mud and rocky terrain.
- Enhanced puncture resistance.
- Outstanding handling capability on all hard terrain.
- RWL = Raised White Letter

Pros: They have done great for our style of wheeling. Trails and reasonable mud for the size of the jeep
Cons: none so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got these tires without looking into reviews. They have done great so far and provide better traction than I can get as of yet without lockers. They were not bad price wise I thought. I have not put very many miles on them but they seem to be wearing pretty well. I would reccomend these to anyone.

Pros: Great Snow performance. Great mud performance. Quiet on the road
Cons: None yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: So far I have about 1200 miles on these tires. I've found the performance in snow to be very good. I had them siped for better ice performance and they have performed admirably. The mud performance is exceptional. This tread design seems to clean very well in the soupy crap Ive put them in and I have had absolutely no traction issues. I had read some reviews where folks had complained about the road noise of the Bighorns. I dont know if its because Im coming out of Baja Claws or if I just need to put more miles on them, but so far I have found the road noise from these tires to be negligible. If the wear performance is as good as the traction, I'll replace these with another set when the time comes.

Comments: I got these tires installed brand new when I purchased my jeep. So I had no money in them so to speak. Great all around traction and good wear. Mostly mud where I'm from and little rocks. They seem to grip the road good in the snow as well.

Price: $170.00
Pros: No vibration, good construction, relatively inexpensive, look aggressive
Cons: Loud, kerfs too shallow, increased fuel consumption ... but that's most mud terrains
Recommended? No

Comments: 33x12.50R15 Tire is strong and balances easy, but the kerfs (sipes) are way too shallow. Within the first 20% of wear, the tire will no longer have factory siping. Tire doesn't hydroplane in typical downpour puddling, even at highway speeds. Traction is good on dry roads also. Grip all around is good, and these will pick up stones sometimes, but have no problem shedding them. Steering input is good, and braking is predictable with no unusual behavior. I have not had them in snow or ice, but I suspect their performance to be typical of a mud terrain.

Now the biggest negative for me is I prefer a less aggressive tire, since I spend 90%+ of the odometer on paved roads. These are a little louder than my KM2's in the same size, especially below 45mph. At highway speeds they are still louder, but you will hear the most contrast to KM2's below 45mph (where the KM2's were much quieter at city speeds). Tire pressure makes zero difference in this regard, it is the design and construction. I also notice that the rolling resistance is greater with these tires than most tires I've had. These really are a good tire, but should be reserved for use on a vehicle that spends 25% of it's life off-highway. If you are over the age of 30, and drive the vehicle daily, you will most likely not like this tire much either? Great looking tire, but you can't see the tires when you're sitting in the driver's seat listening to these typical mud terrains hum .... If that's your thing, God Bless Ya! ... But not for me.

Pros: awesome grip in rock sand and mud
Cons: none yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Have over a month on them now. Have taken 3 trips so far the longest up to VA 7hrs highway to get there tires were good not to loud. Crawled right over the rocks and threw the mud no problems. Also went to Freeman park where the sand is thick. Stayed in 4Hi the whole time traction control only came on twice and tons of people were getting stuck. So far so good

Pros: excellent in mud, clean great, quiet.
Cons: ....none.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Although these are my first mud terrain, these tires are amazing. Realatively quiet for an MT up to 60 just put some tunes on and noise is unheard. They clean and fling mud like crazy and pulled me out of a couple spots where i was dragging axles. im runnin 35-40psi and i got through sugar said in 2wd drive with just a little effort so if you air down you wont have any problem. I can't say enough about these tires, they are amazing!!!

Pros: Great tires, very quiet
Cons: Haven't found any
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I'm running the 35s and they were spooky quiet when I first put them on, after about 15K on them, they are a starting to sound like a MT but, not nearly as loud as the Bridgestone MTs or Savero GT Radial MTs I ran before.

Price: $828.00
Pros: Great traction, sidewalls seem to be pretty tough, seem to wear good (4,500miles/6mo), Cool tread pattern (cross between BFG MT KM1 and GY MT/R), good price.
Cons: seem a little noisy compared to BFGs or MT/Rs, one tire needed about 10oz and still couldn't dual plane balance.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Good tires for the price, will probably go with Goodyear MT/R's next time.

Price: $828.00
Pros: Great Traction, sidewalls seem pretty tough, after about 4,500 miles/6mo seem to be wearing good, about time to rotate 'em. Really like the tread pattern - like a cross between a BFG MT KM1 and Goodyear MT/R.
Cons: Seem to be a little on the noisy side maybe compared to BFG's or MT/R's, one tire of four needed alot of weight (10oz?) and wasn't dual plane balanced.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great tire for the price. Will probably go with MT/R's next time, though, based on my perception of better quality.
