I'd go the treps, I feel that they would be just that little bit more grippy in the mud

I dont think you can go wrong with either, Im running the bighorns and love them, although next time round I may go the treps just to give them a go. Might depend on how much you can get each set for.

Havent used either but the bighorns have all round good feedback by users here ... despite the unlikely bitumen friendly tread pattern.

Have watched Tinys JK performing well on them as well.

The treps are my next purchase choice tho ... probably coz they "look" a bit more universal after checking out a set not long back.

Although I just don't like the look of em, and everyone has them...

But the Bighorns are a great tyre, more lateral stability than the radial treps. And I think the Trep is a directional tyre??.

I wheel with heaps of people who run the Bighorns from 31-35" and they work really well on everything. Cheap as chips too..

i run bighorns, but would kill for a set of treps.
the bighorns are great, but if you're after a step up in aggressiveness, go the treps.

if you have dailys as well, go the treps.
if its your full time tyre, go the bighorns.

I don't think that the smaller Treps are normally imported to Australia, but I'm probably wrong.......... ;)
