It came with the best, we've tried most of major brands and found bighorns to be more durable than most. Spend your money on skids and a-arm guards

I agree with all other, Bighorns are the best freakin tire I have ever seen. Only draw back is the lack of larger then 26" for 14" rims.

Has anyone tried the Dominator from SuperATV? From the other site, I noticed they had a casting issue (could be .5" to 1" difference from one tire to the next) when they first came out. They told me it is fixed now, but not sure about durability.

Does the RZR4 come with 12" rims also?

Everyone has their own opinion but I would stay with 26" Bighorns and 12" rims. You can let the air pressure down if you need more traction to climb the slick hills. You couldn't give me a set of 14".

Not trying to hyjack, but why do you guys like the 12" wheels better?

12 inch has more sidewall and are less likely to pinch
on the rim. 14 inch tires pinch easy.... 431114

Exactly! Plus, if you are not going to ride too hard you can drop the pressure down for a smoother ride.

I do see your guys points. The only reason i went with the 14" wheels was due to a frind of mine getting a rock stuck in between the caliper and the wheel. Broke the caliper off and cracked the wheel. Not to mention mine corners better then theirs do. but, that just might be the fact that the standard has two swaybars.

But, I am the only one running 14" wheels. I may switch to 12" since I do want a better ride. I will swap mine with a buddies and see how different his and mine ride.

I've been running 14" wheels for a long time---THE BIGGEST MISTAKE I EVER MADE! I usually give a lot of stuff away but I wouldn't dare do a friend like that and just like badride said -" you couldn't give me a set of 14"

I plan on using them for flower pots in the near future...or figure something out with an anvil and black powder

248474 anvil and black powder, this could get interesting!

12" rims for me. Seen many 14s get pinched and I don't like the sound of aluminum against a rock!
