In the first pic that is one of the banks. to the left is tracks where the gator went up the two that are towards the bottom are the pioneer. The other pics are for comparison

Well that will help too. Even 50lbs more over the rears can start making a difference on the grip of the tires.

Too bad you said the gator rims won't swap over. You could of been the proof in the pudding.

You can tell I skipped breakfast this morning. I keep talking about food

What ever ire you run run the tire presure as low as you dare I am running 5 front and rear. Goes well in snow. Will be putting radials on. Radials will out preform biases ply every time in snow and ferry soft sand every time. Radials will float better. Unlike the a road vehicle where we want skinny tine that wont float. On an atv / sxs we want to stay on top as much as posible. Low pressure And radials.

Dick, I think mileage will vary greatly on how you drive them. Temp and terrain. I've seen reviews where people said 2k. I've seen people say 5k miles. This is my first set of the BH 2.0's. So your guess is probably as good as mine.
