From seat of the pants feeling, the stock tires on mild terrain contribute quite a bit to the plushness of the ride. I noticed it rode harder when I installed the EVO's.
    Real Bighorns are heavier than the OEM "special" tires (2 ply front, 4 ply rear), so yes Yamaha marketing!

    Lol!! It's just basic math. 2 ply up front + 4 ply in back = 6 ply overall.

    Tracen8r, I got a good laugh from that. You have a bright future ahead of you in either, marketing, creative accounting, or politics. Or maybe all 3. LOL.

    I do like being able to put a smile on peoples face on occasion. For instance, last time I had a Dental exam the young lady taking my x-rays was placing the very comfortable small, soft bite down thing into my cheek. She asked me to lift my tongue out of the way and I did. A little squirt of mouth juice burst forth. We've all had that happen. She kinda backed away and looked at me and I said, "I'm a meta-Human and my name is "The Moistener". It took a bit to quit laughing and get back to work.

    I just took a shoe off so I could count that far, you're right. I'm just a little smarter now!

    I started out running 11 but I found they spin a little too easy on most terrains I was riding. seemed to run kind of hard on the center lug too. But I could see the bead issue with long exposures to rocky stuff. I watched one of my tires roll hard and almost looked to be stretching sideways on a steep side hill. A lot of pressure goes onto the beads

    Just a comment on the original question: "I thought I would ask those of you that have one how you would compare/rate the plushness of ride quality vs other makes/models of SxSs or ATVs." Well, high quality and high cost of a brand or model does not always turn into a plush ride. True, a Kubota side by side is made mostly for work but the seats are little more then vinyl covered boards. They might hold up well to working riders, but they are not comfortable, hard as a rock and they do not hold you in place. Now a truly comfortable seat in my humble opinion resides in the Yamaha YXZ sport UTV, if I was inclined to have a Kubota RTV1100 diesel side by side with a cab I would have to figure out how to put those Yamaha seats in the Kubota. After all, when you have A/C and heat then you should have ALL the comforts befitting such a spendy ride! Same goes for the $25K+ John Deere Gator XUV865 UTV side by side with the cab, A/C and heat, etc. Now the JD at least has a cloth covered seat, but it's actually more like cloth covered boards- very little padding and a bolt upright seating position that is hard on old bones and weak backs! The Wolverine R-spec and X2 and X4 models seem to have decent seats, and when you tweak the shock settings and get just the right tire pressures set- then you can have a fairly comfortable ride!
