I just installed set of 27" spartacus on my new 850xp. Love them. So much smoother on hard surface than my mudlites. Have not tried them on trails or mud yet but really like them so far. You'll love them

Just today I had a car stuck in my 150' driveway. 20" snow and 4 ' drifts. Car was hopelessly stuck--high bottom. Wheels spinning off the ground. Passengers could not open front doors. Had to climb out the back. Took out my 850 Touring--Big Horn tires. Hooked up tow rope to hitch (purchased from Thor) and hooked to the stuck car and I was totally shocked the Big Horns grabbed the snow like a vice and pulled the car out like easy-- Shocked--I'e used stockers on my X2 and the 850 for 5 years and had a hard time not getting stuck. These Big Horns are just amazing. Not flashy or the newest but they just work. Period.

Big John great to hear! I love the XP's i thought about the bighorns but i just dont know how they would do in the mud. i guess everythings going to fail at some point but i thought a good A/T tire that performs great in the mud would be the best and i like the 8 ply tires GBC is making thought you guys would ejoy this too

I've had the GR on the grizz now for a year. Good trial, rock, and snow tire. Can't say I see all that much mud to commet.
Also did put 13,000 miles on a set of BH's that were on my rincon. Great tire the BH is but I do like the Reaper better.
GR's just seem to let u slide in the corners more. In the snow the BH seem to push the front end when trail riding fast in the snow. GR's don't.
Putting Reapers on my new xp le this week. GBC make a good tire for the $$
Oh, its almost frickin impossible to wear out BH's

13 850 HO XP Blue Fire, 3,659 miles (Mine)

09 700 Grizzly, 25" Grim Reapers, Grip warmers. Flare Windshield, Rox Risers w/Solflex Bars (Hers) 8,125 miles

Don't want to hijack the thread. Any questions on the BH or GBC shot me a email or call the shop. We test what we sell and I have personally tested all the GBC's and BH's. I would be glad to share my experience with them all.
