I'm doing a 14" Hiper dual beadlock, and looking for a 27-28" tire. I've been looking at the Reptiles. Any thoughts or experience with those?

I ride a little bit in a creek, but mostly on rocks and hills. Need something that will be best for that.

Two of my buddies have had these and both took them off. They are a tough tire, but neither could ever get them to balance and would vibrate violently after 45mph. They had them on commanders.

I just (as in yesterday) bought a set of 27" roctane's, i have them mounted on 14in STI beadlocks. They are suppose to be great for rocks and such. I am nervous about balance for the roctane's also. I'm riding tomorrow ill give a review afterwards.

The original big horn is a good tire for the rocks unless you're wanting to go to a 8 ply sidewall. If you haven't bought the HiPers let me know, we sell them way less than retail.

Thanks for the offer Alex, I'm a dealer for them too. Just waiting to see if they'll do a little less since it's a shop rig.

TTT. Still looking. Don't know if I wanna go with EFX now, since they don't have staggered sizes.

Any more advice?

One ride in I really like the roctanes. They performed well, were really smooth on hardpack. I'm anxious to see how they do in the slop. Took them through several rock gardens with no punctures or even rash. So far so good!

Glamis- when are you going to venture to the right coast for some good ol WV mountain riding?

Not quite meaty enough, and I can't remember, but maybe they don't have the staggered size?

I ordered a set of 27" Rocktanes 2 days ago.
