Would I need wheel spacers for 25 inch original bighorns on a 09 500? Would you recommend originals or 2.0s. I have heard the bighorns do not have all that much more weight than the 2.0s but are tougher, and stronger

no spacers needed. u could even go up to the 26" tire and they would clear. the only difference in the original bigs and the 2.0's is the tread size, the carcass is identical. I run the 2.0's and recommend them for ur ride just to save some pony's. I think either would be fine. for the 850's and 1K's I would lean toward the originals but those bikes have hp to spare.

Thanks I'll go 2.0s when it is time. Will there be much difference in tread wear. What about the sidewalls?

sidewalls are the same. since the lugs are thinner I would suspect they wear quicker. I have 1,000 miles on mine and the rears are noticeable more warn the the fronts. i would say the 2.0's wear out faster then the originals, but the 2.0's clean out better.
