    And the opinion keep coming. don't they, well another then. LOL

    Personally I don't want to be digging down to hit bottom, it frozen and grip will be minimal or even icy. If you're in 1 to 3 ft of snow you'd want to be riding on top of it otherwise you'd run the risk of hanging up the chassis and you done. As much early I did going over a drift which get quite long and high here. 6 - 8ft high and 20-50 yards long. I tracked where a few sled went over, but I did not get far as I dug in. I'd want a tire that can pack it in the thread and push me along. Certain no one to fling it out and plow through the entire depth. No way, no thanks its no fun when you're stuck for 2-5hrs digging out a machine. Done that as well too many times. No more.

    PS: EDIT
    That's what my HTR's are doing packing the snow under in the pattern of the thread (an aggressive foot print left in the snow) as it rolls over and through, ON TOP of it. I've not gone through any more than 1ft of fallen snow, various types. Snow machines would be out and conflict and the Wolverine is working much harder going through any amount of snow. Having the same tires on my Kingquad plowing I am in sometimes deeper but it goes through the same way without spinning. It also rides on top with its 26" tires.

    Skelley, maxxis advertises them as a truck inspired tire. You said truck inspired tires don't do well on anything but hard pack. I can tell you that the carnivores perform in more than hard pack.

    Yeah, selling gimmick as you would not see that on a truck out in your local lot today. I'm not saying it's a bad tire.
    When they first came out, they had them listed as a desert; hard pack, Intermediate, Rock tire. They have since changed them to All Terrain.

    The 'truck inspired' That I am talking about are your typical Mongrel, Terrabite "type" of tires that split the pattern and flip it for the other side or have the angled pattern like the BFG KM3's.
    Those types of tires/patterns you can see even on dealer lots today.

    Edit: My latest group ride, beside OEM tires, Bighorn and Carnivores were the crowd favorite. There were more Bighorns though.
    In a almost 12 hr ride, I talked to everyone. Tires are always brought up time to time. Everyone has their favorites.

    Go on another group ride and they'll tell you both are junk and M1 Evils are the best. Sure enough, most of the machines are running them.

    Doesn't make much sense as it's all the same terrain.
    Tires and Oil discussions are sure to give mixed results.
    Best thing to do is buy them, run them and decide for yourself.
    However, I tend to stay away from that 'typical' truck type tire.

    Hell, trucks don't even come with "truck tires" any more. I guess I infered that you were basically saying AT tires suck in anything but hard pack. Myself, I'm sold on AT style tires as my riding covers all different types of terrain. I will never go to a mud style tire again as they don't offer that much of a benefit in the mud but they suck in about everything else. There are a bunch of great tires out there right now and I've found that tire compound and construction has as much impact on traction as tread design. As of now, I'm sold on the carnivores for a great trail tire. Terrabites, Kenda htrs and big horns are also very popular, and for good reason: they work, at least at the areas we ride.

    I have run the Bighorns, now I have run Kenda htrs about 5000 mi. They wear well, they are less squirrelly on pavement than Bighorns. They hold rut edges better. I run 10 psi front 12 in back. I will keep the Kendas.

    That's interesting Doc, I run my tire pressure opposite as the steering is to heavy feeling.
    Do you notice anything like that with the HTR's? Do you think it might be because of the thick sidewall maybe?

    I said hard pack and intermediate terrain actually.
    I'm not disagreeing with you. If you look at my sig, I too am running a AT atm.
    It's not your typical symmetrical style which is what intrigued me to give them a try.
    I had to put over 1200 miles on them before I could really form a opinion.

    Another tire that is very intriguing to me is SuperATV XT Warrior tires.
    They are on my list to try
