I have some BH on another atv and they are 27 they are about 1 1/2 inches taller than the BH 2.0 on my X not sure if why but the 2.0 must run smaller?

Holy crap that is a huge difference. Maxxis should realy re-evaulate the way they size their tires. I'm needing to buy some new ones as we speak. I almost just pulled the trigger on the orginal Bighorn 27x12x12 thinking they would be the same size as the 27x11.12 Bighorn 2.0's. Those are way to big for me and would probably kill a lot of HP due to un-sprung weight. I'm think I should go with the 26 or maybe even 25's to be as close to stock. Anybody else have experience with the sizing on the original Bighorn.

The stock tires are special made 4 ply Bighorns 2.0, they are only available at your local friendly Can Am dealer, no where else.
When it comes to making comparisons on sizing, weight...ect on the stock tires all bets are off. The stock tires are animals all there own.
I know this because I spoke to Maxxis on this very subject Monday.

Screw it, I just ordered a set of 26x12x12 rears and 26x9x12's for the fronts. I got the Bighorn 1.0's. Cheapest place I found was Rocky Mountain ATV for $517.00 to my door. I hope they are close in size to the stock ones that are on my X. Right now I've almost wore my 2.0's compleatly down. They also have about 50 plugs in total with the 4 tires combined. I'm not kidding either. Hopefully these 1.0's will be much more puncture resistant. Luckily I have never tore the sidewalls on them.

I just bought a set of the Maxxis Vipr's to replace my stock Big Horn 2.0's. Took them out for a ride yesterday. They did great. Got a good price from Chaperral Motor sports.

LOL ya 1.0's meaning original. Yep, I'll take pictures for comparison.
you ever take pics of the difference? I need to buy tires real bad.... Just deciding on what to get
Crap, sorry totally forgot. My 26 inch 1.0's are just a tad bit taller than the 27 2.0's. Glad I went with the 26 and not 27's. They also zapped my top speed about 4 MPH. Oh well, I hardly ever go the fast anyway.

That's sad... They shouldn't market them as 27's... I think I'm going with the 26.5 growlers... Hope they fit ok....
