Duro's or Bighorns

If i'm only paying an extra 10 bucks a tire from a duro powergrip to the Bighorns which tire would you go with? My dilemma is, pay an extra 40 bucks for the name bighorn on the side or save them and get the powergirps. Also is it that much of a difference from the regular bighorns to the 2.0's?

Yes they are

* This radial constructed tire is designed to help alleviate the hard-impact when riding on rough trails with pits or gravel and boost the driving comfort.
* Innovative sidewall design aids in protecting the shoulder from being punctured and protection to the rim.
* The 6 ply structure gives the tire the strength it needs to resist puncturing and boosts the life of the tire.

Big horns say

* Radial construction offers a significantly smoother ride over rough trails.
* Suitable for desert, dirt and rock terrain.
* Extra lugs on the shoulder protect the sidewall and rim.
* Raised white lettering on 1 side.
* 6-ply rating

i always go with the Ol school big horns. 2.0's are more, and not as tough.

Peace of mind is worth $40. My BH's were awesome and never left me with a flat. Plus in Rhino terms $40 is like $2.50

Okay now should I run 2.0's or the old school Bighorns also wondering if I should go 25x8's all around or do the 8's and 10's.

Yeah i'm doing some rockcrawling, sand, and trails. I guess a set of paddles for the sand is in order for next year.
