Well I know I will probably gets some comments about this. Why replace new tires on the Gator? We use the gator mostly on country roads, going between the 2 farms, not in the mud very often. The maxxis bighorns were very noisy. These tires probably reduce the road noise between 50 -75%. First trip with the tires, I am very pleased with the results. Selling the bighorns on craigslist for someone who plays in the mud.
