Please help me decide...

So I am going to need some new tires soon and I can't make up my damn mind on what to do. I have been really considering buying truck tires and upgrading to a 14 inch rim. I just don't know if they will work for the driving I do?? My biggest concern with the truck tires is if they will be aggressive enough on 4WD trails.

Here are some things I have to consider:

1--Most of my riding is desert/forest trails. I would say that I have to use the 4WD at least once on every trip out.

2--I don't dune at all.

3--I also drive on the streets around town when I need to. More so in the summer when it's warm!!

4--I like to go fast just as much as anyone, but it's not really my top priority

I will probably end up buying new rims either way I go, so I know I am already going to have that expense. I can get Bighorns for a really good price, but those truck tires aren't cheap!! haha



So, if it were up to you guys, what would you do????

a set of stock tires and rims is so sheap out there, If I wanted all around that might be a way to go. How often are you going through tires? I have a friend who runs Susuki Samari tires on the steet and desert and they work good he says.

Hapa,

You are right. There are a ton of cheap stocker sets out there right now. I have wanted new rims since I bought my rhino, but told myself that I would wait until I needed new tires first, and then upgrade all at once.

I have 1500 miles on my stock tires and they are pretty worn. They aren't bald by any means, but I am at that point where I am concerned with punctures. Also, both rims on the passenger side are jacked up from when my wife laid the rhino over. They both still hold air, but they are ugly!!

The only reason the 2.0s are any lighter is that the 26 inch 2.0 is like a 25 bighorn 1.0.

but anyways, big horns are the way to go.

Unless you need a DOT tire for some reason, BIGHORNS!!! Darn tough tire, and they ride really smooth.
