Roctane 8 ply radial???

Has anyone tried the roctane 8ply radial? it looks and feels thick as can be at dealer and looks nice. however it feels real heavy but I don't know how it compares with others. Anyone tried them?

I have them, 26-9-12s. I have 1000 miles on them and they wear well but I will get bighorn2 next time. The roctane XDs ride rougher and the p500 needs all the help it can get in the suspension department.

I know others that had the rocktans and they didn't like them. Look at the Black water evolution or big horns.

I too thought about the rocktanes,but I went with the bighorns.I just thought the would be too stiff.I have not regretted it so far.

I have 26x9-12 Roctane XD on all four with 12x6 stock fronts on all four. Run 4psi. Tires are great after 500 miles of breaking them in. They were rough at first. No regrets now.

More flex than the 6 ply Sedona Rip Saw I tried first. I like the 8 ply Roctane XD much more.

3 people in our group had sidewall punctures on tanes this weekend
I don't know if they were the hd or not.
they are known for bead breaking also, be careful running low psi

I pumped mine up from 8 psi to 12. Rides rough but feels like 20% more power and I get 20 more miles per tank.

I have the 27x9-14 up front and 27x11-14 rear on MSA wheels on my 700-4 and once i cleaned out my spark arrestor can't tell any difference from stock other than they pull a lot better. Buddy of mine had them and said his would bleed air around the bead after sitting a while. No problems with mine yet but they only have about 80 miles on them. They are the same weight as the backwater evolutions in front and lighter than the rears of the same size. Ive heard the rumors of sidewall punctures but have 3 sets in my riding group and no issues yet
