As JP posted, they are about 1" bigger when new. My speedo was off with stock tires, put on the 26" OG BHs and it was exact with my GPS. Rim width does factor into the equation though.

thanks now I need to figure out what I want. I really want 30" mudlites but im afraid of the power loss. going from 1 extreme to another 30" mudlites or 27" bighorns. unless I find something else.....lol

Bighorns!  They won't go with a true mud tire in a deep hole, but they will kick a mudlites ass anywhere else.  Handling, ride, toughness, and the real big thing between the two is the wear.  Mudlites wear so fast you can see a diference after a 7 mile blacktop run.  I like the Horns better in the snow than mudlites also.  Drop the psi and they will throw snow and float instead of digging down.  Mudlites tend to wheelhop bad and just dig holes.

Bighorns are great all around tires, probably the most popular tire there is on the east coast. If you're going to be doing a decent amount of mud as well I'd go with Zilla's over Mudlites. So IMO the choice would be between Bighorns and Zillas. If you only hit mud every once in awhile I'd go with Bighorns, if you're doing an equal mix of mud/snow/trials I'd go with Zillas. I see you live in P.A., I'd probably think Bighorns would be the best bet up there in that terrain.

man i cannot make up my mind. i really want a 30" tire. the terrian i ride is very rocky thats why i want the 30" for the extra GC. i ride in everything and i mean everything. coal silt which is black sand , rock , shale , watery mud , thick mud , creeks , coal clay , washouts , hardpack trail. my big problem is i have 12" wheels and there are really no choices for 12" wheels. if i decide to buy 14" wheels then i can have my pick. but i was not planning on the extra 300.00 - 400.00 for wheels. also i want a good puncture resistance tire that does not weight 40lbs. i know i know i cant have my cake and eat it too. and i will admit my rhino has a mud problem if there is a mud hole my rhino will dive right in every time.

i think the BH`s will fit my needs but my problem is my wheels. with having 12" wheels the biggest BH is a 27".  the mudlite i can get a 30" and the zilla im back down to a 28". i called itp the mudlites now use the same rubber compound as the 589s which is a good thing so mudlite is back in the picture. and the 30x10x12 mudlite is 33lbs. but the guy also told me that they just released the blackwater evoloution in a 30x10x12 that is 8 ply and 36lbs.

I've never seen the Blackwater, if you're dead set on a 30" with 12" rims then Mudlites might be the way to go. They arent horrible tires by any means. They will get the job done they just wear fast and dont mud as strong as Zilla's. My buddy ran thru a pair of ITP 589's on his RZR in about 1000-1200 miles. Granted he did smoke them on pavement more than he should have lol. He just put on 28" Zilla's like I have, we'll see how many miles he gets on these.

im not set on 30s a true 28 will be fine. I was even thinking about 27" bighorns cause I hear they run tall. im not worried about long life I don't get out much. hell I have had my current tires sense 2004 lol!. zillas were my first choice actually when I started shopping but then found out they have weak sidewalls and are puncture prone much like the original mudlites.
