Personally i have had real good luck out of Maxxis Bighorns. Both the original ones and the lighter Bighorn 2.0's.

The only drawbacks are the regular bighorns are heavy, and they run true to size.

I have Bighorn 2.0s. Several friends run GBC Grim Reapers and are very happy with them.

I was looking at the Bighorn 2.0's also and compared to the ITP Terra Crosses... what are the thoughts? I don't want to forfit and power because of the heavy tires.... Bighorns are maybe the way to go then....?

How would the 2.0 be for road, trail(no mud, only if I have to.) and snow??

I've rode mine in it all, handles best on rocks and trail conditions. medium mudholes are not a problem but these are not really meant as a mud tire.
I like the Bighorn 2.0's better than the BH's since they seem to clean out a bit better.

Handles pretty well in snow, but i've only rode on these tires once in snow.

I believe the Pitbulls will take the #1 spot before long.they have rim guard protection and better all around tire. But thats just my opion . you will have to make your own choice. just research the tires you are looking at go from there.
