I don't but would say they are probably good tires but extremely heavy not so good on a UTV if acceleration and top speed is a priority.

I ran the 6ply Growlers a few times and loved the traction, unbelieveable in the snow. I gave them to my buddy to put on his rzr, he loves them, prob. about 200 miles on them with very little wear. Now im running the 8 ply growlers and really like them also. They are both very smooth riding tires. I dont have many miles on them yet to see how durable they are going to be, but based on performance they are both the best tires ive tried for traction and for ride quality. Yes they are heavy, but most UTV tires are. Ive tried the lighter tires and have all kinds of flat issues. I think if you ride a UTV aggressively you need a heavy 8 ply tire.

Heavy usually means better pucture protection, bigger or more lugs and slightly slower due to rotating mass. It all depends on the type of riding you do and your hp.
How is the sidewall rim protection on the Pitbull tires?

The 8 ply rockers is awesome, big bead protecting the rim.

The bighorn 2.0's are nice and lite but i destroyed two of them in 100 miles. The regular bighorns are tougher but not as tough as the old bias ply bighorns, plus they are heavy.

I am looking at the Pit Bull tires very hard right now. I read a good review and asked the author some questions. He even called me on the phone to answer my questions. But it seems that Pit Bull isn't making anything but the 25.5 right now. I am trying to decide if it's worth the wait. Here is the review. Pit Bull Tires Growler X.O.R. Review - ATV Torture Forums
