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

Comments: Great Traction! Great on rocks, in the rain, in the mud, and on the road. They are very quiet. I did not have a great experience in the sand, but I dont think it was the tires to blame

You get a smooth ride on the road, a digger in the mud, and a crawler on the rocks. The all around best tire i've had.

Price: $650.00
Pros: Price, Looks, Siping
Cons: A little noisy (I like it though)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Maxxis makes kick a** tires for my downhill mountain bike, so when my Mickey Thompson MTZ's wore down and one blew out, I picked up 5 new 31x10.50 15's Maxxis Bighorns off eBay for a great deal.
Tires are very grippy. A little noisier than some MT's on the highway, but you have to sacrifice somewhere for performance. About 5,000 miles on them so far and wearing perfectly.

Price was for 5 new tires shipped to my door.

Maxxis Bighorn MT
Price: $550.00
Pros: Awesome on/off road traction
Cons: They hum louder and louder as they wear
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I was working at Les Schwab when I got these, so I got a pretty good price on my set of 5. I was pretty much set on the Toyo MT, but then I started reading on here about the bighorn, I started to look into them. At work, I found out that the Toyos would cost more than $50 more per tire. So I figured I couldn't go wrong with these.

I got these in 265/75/16 when I got my lift. Coming from stock height and some extremely worn down H/Ts, this tires are amazing. On just a slighly wet road I was able to light up all 4 of my michelin HTs just before they were replaced by these bighorns, but now it's difficult to just get two of these bad boys spinning. On road they have great traction and a slight hum.

Offroad these are unstoppable. Last wheeling trip I aired them down to 10psi, but I think next time i'll probably go down to 7 or 8. I haven't used any other MTs, so I can only compare them to ATs and HTs.

I have a little less than 10k on these tires now, and they look like they'll probably last for 30k, maybe a little more. Once these wear down however, I'll most likely get another set of these for off road use only, and get the BFG TA for DDing because I don't really like the hum and severely decreased mpg. Going from my stock size highway treads to these heavy things, my city mpg went from about 14-15 down to 9, and my highway mpg went from 19-22 down to 14-15.

And when I first got these tires, they had a very slight hum to them, but now at about 10k, they are fairly loud. Having a WJ with lots of audio upgrades, I can easily tune out the tires, but I think it would be easier to just have two sets in the future.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this tire.

It's amazing where a Jeep can go with just a little extra clearance and some larger, more aggressive tires.
