Maxxis Bighorns are in! (pics added)

Recommended Posts

Got them from rocky mountain today via UPS. Replacing stock tires and rims with 26x9x12 front and 26x12x12 rears, SS108 rims (black). I plan on putting them on tomorrow, so here's my question ... am I going to be able to use the OEM lug nuts? I thought the whole package might come with ITP chrome replacements included, but no go. 2008 Yami Griz 700 by the way. Thanks for any advice!

Not sure, I'll measure and post later. Leaned up against the other tires they did not look that much taller. Specs I read somewhere say they are 26.4 ... I'll verify and post some pics. Anyone else know for sure about the lug nuts?

I know Somethingfishy has a set of Bighorns and SS rims. He's the guy who can answer your questions about the lug nuts.

Congrats on the purchase. The wheels/tires will really dress up the Grizz.

I have the SS212's and the crome nuts were included. Stock nuts would not work on mine.

I thought you should have gotten nuts with the set too. Most dealers have those chrome nuts on hand, dont ask me how I know! blush

I thought so too, but after calling them they stated not included. Would have been nice had they pointed that out on their web site, then again the whole set of tires and rims were $612.00, no sales tax nor shipping. The ones I need are the ITP 10mm 60 degree taper 14mm head. Oh well, might check around locally or in Duluth,MN before ordering online ... thanks eveyone for the help. I'll try to post some pics once mounted!

Nice! ... that's what I always think when I'm looking at posts, where's some pics? Got back from Duluth just before dark, found the right lug nuts @ Gander Mtn. Put them on as darkness fell, so the pics aren't the greatest. Also, didn't wipe off the gay blue color from the letters yet ... I'll do that tomorrow and post a good day shot. Side by side pics are stock 25x8x12 vs 26x9x12 fronts, and 25x10x12 vs. 26x12x12 rears. Snow didn't really allow a level surface to compare heights, but I didn't think the 26's were that much taller, just way beefier!

    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
    • Awesome!  Congrats and great work!!!
