Take a look at the Duro Powergrip. Its a bighorn pattern tire and is also got a good price on them. Check rockymountainatv.com . Also there is more info on them as well as people using them.
I did a lot of research myself, almost a years worth. I finally ordered my new wheels and tires yesterday. I just decided against the big horn pattern tires.
I found a walk around video of them on YouTube. I think they were on a 660 Grizzly, but don't remember for sure. They seamed pretty meaty from the video, but if I remember correct they were a bit on the heavy side.
I have a set of Artrax Ctx on my sportsman. They are not the radial version though. I have about 120 miles on them. They seem more square than any other tire I've seen. They definitely dig in and get you where you need to go. The ride is smooth as well. Most of my friends I ride with have the Bighorns and they really like my tires and said if they hold up they'll get them next over the Bighorns. Mainly because of the price. I got mine from motorsport.com for like $310 shipped. Here's a pic of the rears and front. I got the same size as stock tires and they did seem a little bigger.
Hey sh!t happens but I've ridden with guys with the knockoffs and they don't hold up like the bighorn or other top tier trail tires. I personally wouldn't waste my money knowing what abuse I'm going to put a tire through.
So, sportsman hit me up for my thoughts on the Artrax tires. i ran them for a year maybe a little longer. Tread life seemed pretty good. Here was my response on them. I also had to put off set wheels on. Fronts were really close to rubbing TRE.
I haven't been on here in a while since i bought my RZR, so not sure what thread it was in. But, i ran them through some nasty rocks and they did really well. Grip for rocky or rooted trails is pretty good. Buddy was running Backwater Evos and i went through everything he did. The fronts don't do too well in mud since the tread is closer together than the rear mostly when the fronts get bogged up and you try and turn. But i've gone through some pretty decent mud holes on some trails as long as you keep it moving and going straight. For cheap tires, they do pretty well. If cash were an issue, I'd buy them again. But if cash were not an issue i'd buy either ITP Blackwater Evos or GBC grim reapers for the 8 ply. I have GBC Dirt Commanders on my RZR and have been happy with them.
