Tire upgrade questions

I am in the market for new tires and wheels and cant seem to find any bighorn or bighorn 2.0. so I am looking for input on any other choices. I have looked at gbc dirt tamers and gbc grim reaper and wondered if anyone has them or any info on them as to wear durability and how well they like them. I ride in varried terrain fom hard packed dirt to mud, but im generaly a trail rider. Alos does anyone have any info or experience with motosport alloys wheels. I like some of their design and would be different than most I see on the trail. Thanks for any input.

I tried hunterworks along with almost every supplier on ebay and other motorsport tire carriers. I am looking for 26 with 12 inch rims. I am trying to buy them as a package with ss212 black rims. I guess maxxis isnt shipping to the us (china based company i was told) again till august. They are primarily car and truck tire manufacturers is what i was told and are foccusing on those till august.

I never would have bought my 2.0s if I knew they were made in china lol

I have owned and operated a tire store for the last 31 years Bridgestone dealer for the last 12 years, it had gotton to where about 90 percent of all lower cost commercial truck, light truck, passenger and about 95 percent of all Lawn Mower, ATV tires were made in China but due to the new import/ export law alot of that is going to change but if you would just start looking you would be amazed at how many tires are coming out of China even our low cost Bridgestone were contracted in China but it is all starting to swing a little bit but just take a look at any of your ATV tires you will be suprised.

Bigdaddy , I know alot of tires come from out side of the usa, and that sucks! but i am just looking for some good tires and rims for a varied terrain. I just got a quote from a guy for motosport alloy diesel 14" rims with their tire tread design very similar to the bighorns. 725 for a kit shipped. Sounds pretty good. I wont post the vendor untill i check to see if he minds and wants his name on here. Hes already bending over backwards trying to help me out and hes on the opposite coast.

Now im waiting to see if motosport alloys make the rims with the correct offset and bolt pattern. Their site does not show the teryx bolt pattern.
