I was under the impression that Bighorn run true to size. And when compared to say an ITP tire of the same size it's usually taller. A guy over at highlifter just bought 25" Bighorns and put them on his Vinson. He has a picture of his Vinson with the 25" tires next to another Vinson with the stock 25" tires and the Bighorns as smaller. I don't get. Here's the links with his pics.

Koko,

My 25" Bighorns were standard size, they just looked bigger due to the lugs on the sidewalls.

In this pic/link this guy has old rims and old tyres vs new rims and new tyres. Perhaps the diff is in the rims?

That was my thought and what I posted as well. Pretty much a guarantee I'll be going with the same tires on my grizz, I just want to make sure the tire is at least as tall as my 25" ATR.


Thanks Beast.

Chech up on the Interco Swamp Lites! they are an amazing tire. My only complaint is that they aren't radials, at least they are 6 ply which I consider mandatory. They are fine on grass unless you are too agressive, they are awesome in mud, and they are GREAT on the trails and snow. Just my $.02.

Something else to consider... in the photo ATV5, note that the Bighorns are radials and the stock tires are not. Note that the stock bias-plies are more curved on top than the Bighorns, which may account for the appearance of the stocker tire being taller.
