Time to replace my shot stock Bighorns... I have looked at everything out there, and it seems the trend (from the manufacturers anyway) is to run the same size tires front and rear now, and not many options in 14" tires to stick with the staggering sizes setup (narrow front, wider rear) from the factory... Do any of you who have gone to the "all four tires the same size" regret it performance-wise...? I really don't want to buy a set of narrow rear wheels so I can mount narrow rear ties to match the front to be honest... I'm leaning towards Maxxis Vipers in 29x9x14 F and 29x11x14 R on the stock 1000 XT wheels, but I'm not convinced I'll like how open the rear tire pattern is for the type of trail riding we do... If I go with "all four tires the same size", I'm leaning towards Super ATV Intimidators in 28x10x14s (vs '30s) to keep the weight down...
