How do you like the Carnivores ? I think they might be my next tire in the same size as yours. I've put too many plugs in the bighorns for my comfort. There are also a few deep cuts I worry about.
Honestly, we don't have enough time in the stuff to give a full review. I am a believer that tires are among the most important changes you can make to a machine. Everyone is going to have different needs depending on where we ride.
I looked at several options, but knew I needed to get out of the Bighorn 2.0s quickly. They're a good tire for what they are, but we ride in some rugged territory and lots of rocks. We also ride long distances and in remote areas. So, a 6 ply tire just isn't an option for us. I have had Kenda Bearclaw HTRs on two machines, including on my quad now. They're excellent. I kind of wanted to try something else.
For the Teryx, I narrowed down to Tusk Terrabites and the Carnivores. I went with the Carnivore because it has a flatter tire profile, like a truck tire and seemed like it may be a bit better tire overall for what we do. I also noted that Kawi put them on the KRX. Visited with some of the guys and we all agreed I should be the guinea pig. LOL. They were a bit more expensive than the Terrabites.
In the first ride, we had sloppy mud, maybe a few inches to a foot deep, lots of snow and slippery wet rocks. Lots of ruts too that we fell into from time to time. The machine pulled hard through all of it and we never once felt like we were slipping much or in danger of getting stuck. So, I am very pleased so far. As we go on, I'll keep updating. They look badass, so there's that!
