    28s on Stock Wheels

    I've always treated stock tires as just things to keep the rims from touching the dirt until real tires can be fitted. So, in that spirit, I began casting around for replacements for the stock Maxxis tires for my X2 at about the same time I took delivery in October. After considering what seems like dozens of tires, I finally settled on ITP Evos in 27" 9s in front, 10s in back. That is until I got wind of a deal on a set of 28x10x12 Bighorn 2.0 at all four corners. I'm nothing if not flexible. I was a little concerned about 10" tires on the front, but I shouldn't have worried. They fit fine and no rubbing regardless of suspension articulation or steering angle. So far I am very pleased. I don't even feel any urgency about clutching. Most of my riding is fairly slow speed trail riding with many rocks and some steeps. I have not yet encountered the Rubicon-like challenges that lie ahead, but I suspect things will be fine.

    Seems a lot of people use those. I prefer a bit deeper tread for my area, lots of surprise mud areas.

    Yeah, they are really in the moderately aggressive style. We don't get much mud here, mostly rocks, lots and lots of rocks. That's why I switched my target from the Blackwater Evos to Bighorns, which are also on the light side in the 2.0 version, about 28lbs per. So far, they are performing as I'd hoped. Surprisingly smooth on pavement, and predictably progressive on the trail. Much more communicative than the stockers, which also fine tires in their own right.
