Not only does just about every UTV sold today come with similar multiuse tires, they actually come with the same brand and model tire—the Maxxis Bighorn. Some manufacturers claim that their Maxxis Bighorn has been built specifically for them. Ten years ago, this was one of the best aftermarket tires you could buy for a UTV. Today, customers are way more specific with their tire needs, and it shows by the large number of tire offerings and even new tire companies coming to market. The following is a quick guide to what is new in all-terrain tire technology and sizes for the UTV segment. Study hard and stay tuned for a lot more tire testing in the coming issues of Dirt Wheels, as we are just as curious as you are to find the next best tire.
