    Not very specific here...what are you using them for? I would say the tires on left are a better all around tire, very good on trails. The mudlites on the left are good as well, i have these on my 360 4x4. Good in all types of terrain.

    i bought sedona ripsaws at first i didn't think id like them, but we never had enough snow to form an opinion, in the mud i don't like them at all but for the snow i found out they are perfect

    12'' of settled ny snow and i had to retrieve my snowblower from up on the hill, i went right up it plowing snow the whole time, yea the quad was working but the tires were working great,

    and they are radials so thats a plus in my book too

    The copycat Bighorns (Tusk brand tires) will work just fine in snow. Try running them at 3 lbs air pressure for plowing and running in snow... I think you'll be pleased. Plus, they are a great all around trail tire. Just not for mud.

    Yea, they have a very wide, flat profile with low air pressure... lots of traction. Just be careful not to run them to low, or you might have one come off the bead.

    Love my bighorns!

    I run mine 5psi up front and 4 to 4.5 in the back plowing (added weight and running down to road to plow family)

    They do work REALLY well aired down to 2-3 psi for snowy trail riding (they float and don't dig, kinda like a snowmobile)

    I know even at 2 lbs of air still hard mine are on 12 '' rims andthey are bias tires you get by more with them very little flex vs radial tires that really has flexible sidewalls

    Trail riding I'll have 4-5 lbs in them

    Me and few other went on a midnight ride in the snow and those tires do bite well and float well
    I have tusk bias and cousin has power griper Radial We never got stuck and everybody else had factory tires or 589 titans
    Man this tread patten is the best for snow I seen in long time
