You probably want 9 psi front, 11 rear for unloaded riding then?

The stock OEM Big Horns are not the same as the aftermarket. Probably to keep the weight numbers down. Mine had 4 ply on the back and 2 ply on the front its a 2016.

Are you sure that the 2PR & 4PR markings are how many ply’s of the tire? I have never seen that type of markings to indicate “Ply”. It doesn’t seam likely to me that they would make the Bighorn 2.0 in so many different constructions.

The 27's should take you 8% more mph than 25's at the same speedo reading.

Real speed about Speedo x 27/25 = Speedo x 1.08.

I talked to a friend of mine that is a general manager over 5 tire stores this morning about this. He said that the 4PR is another way of stating the number of ply’s of a tire. He also said “although they are showing a 6 ply on their website, that Sometimes the manufacturer will have tires made to their specs.”
sorry for the confusion (mostly my confusion) hope this helps everyone.

^^^ Yep. Just a few layers better than a wagon wheel.
