Bighorn 2.0 8ply

I bought a set of tires, 28" Bighorn 2.0. They are brand new takeoffs from Can Am x-3. To my surprise on the side of the tire it states they are 8ply. Also they run small. Basically a 27" tire. My stock bighorns are 6 ply 26" which are 1" smaller than these 28". I didnt think Maxxis made 8ply Horns? Is this maybe a Can Am requirement from Maxxis?

Some of the first X3s were delivered with tires that said BIGHRON! Possible that the Can Am required a stiffer sidewall since they are capable of 85mph+.

Love trivia facts. Cool. The tires don't feel heavier. I think 8ply should be standard on utv Bighorns. I wonder if they are 8 or its a mistake label?

Not sure. According to the Bighorn web site, ALL Bighorn 2.0 tires are 6 ply, regardless of size.

I know, I checked out a few sites as well. Weird eh?

Can Am website lists the tires for the X3 Turbo as Maxxis Bighorn 2.0 6 ply.? Maybe another "misprint" on the tires, IDK.

Makes sense because they are light like a 6ply not heavier like I assume 8ply would be..
