Madmax I was almost ready to pull the trigger on a set of Maxxis Bighorn 2 tires and a buddy has talked me into going with the Maxxis Zilla's... He's been riding pretty much the same trails as I but has been doing it for much longer, I do respect his opinion!

I got a set of 26-11-12's and the 26-9-12's for $379 including shipping...I'm happy with that.

I ordered 18 gram weights and shim from JBS Performance the other day, this should help with the larger tires.

Only thing I don't like, but I find any new tires do this for a while, but if you get on just the right size rocks, man they throw them.
And for me, unfortunately, one of the main tasks I have to use to get from my place out to the trail system, is a road built up with screened rock from a nearby pit. Just the right size rocks.....little smaller than a golf ball..... Lol

CanadianKodiak700 I had 26" knock off slingshot... Hated them. Took them off after 40km.
On went 26" reptile radials. Love these tires, handle anything, smooth as silk on asphalt Ave hard pack.
