I'm thinking of replacing the 2.0 Bighorns with Bighorns or something similar. Keeping the stock wheels. I'm assuming that the different sizes won't be a problem. 26x8-12 and 26x10-12 (2.0) vs 26x9-12 and 26x12-12 (Bighorns). The machine is stock.

2.0 are ballon type you have. Real original is a thicker tire and the one that made it famous. Bearclaw HTR are comparable and depends on use but bother are tires. I have the 27" on my SE as you'd see in my signature below. its the max that will fit on these as it is. 27" Bighorns should also not be a problem. fyi

I am really liking these GBC dirt commander 2.0 on my Rmax.
I like them on my x2 xt-r too. I had Sedona Ripsaws on my gen 1 and they were great, but spit dirt and mud a lot. I like the gbc dirt commanders best so far. I ride in everything except deep mud.

OK, it looks like no matter which way I go, the front tire will be 9", instead of 8. I'm assuming that the tie rod end won't interfere with the wider tire?
The rears will be 11 or 12.

tie rod end should have no impact. I would encourage you to think about a 27" tire for opening up a couple options and a little extra ground clearance. Stock motor should have no challenges to the 1" bigger tire.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I decided to go with the 26" Bighorns--I think they'll do just fine. The rears arrived yesterday. Big difference between them and the 2.0's...

Yep, can't go wrong with the OG Horns, 2.0's are pretty weak.

I had a micro leak on my HTR tires. Impossible to see and so small only the soap bubbles to find it so small. A super small finishing nail couldn't make that leak the way it was right in the middle of a void. Odd, Can't see how it failed to leak personally.

I'm pretty sure this will be the only set I'll be buying. The buggy won't get a lot of use, and the 2.0's aren't in bad shape, but I'd rather have new ones now instead of 2-3 years down the road. Old age is playing into this plan...(Me, not the tires...)
