if you don't want them horribly droneing loud, then go with the trxus MTs and not the MTRs. yes i understand if you get a mud tire theyre gonna be loud, but if you drive your truck on the pavement more than 10 percent of the time you're in it, then why not get something with the same if not better performance than the MTRs and are quiet and comfortable for the probly 90 percent of the time that you are in the truck on pavement. the trxus MTs are sipped and are much better in the rain and wet conditions than the MTRs.

The STS blow *** offroad!

How would this have ANY traction in any off-road situation besides sand?

I've seen em used in a lot harder **** than what you've been offroading, so what is your point? They're rated as great snow tires, they get great wear, and they are great offroad. Have you used em personally? I don't think everyone here is a rock crawler and you probably don't know what snow and ice is even like. Why does Andy need non road tires? so the first ice that gets laid down crashes his truck? Even the BFG MT/R guys say they aren't the best things to have on the road.

O no, how big were the curbs?

How are the trxus M/T's a non-road tire?

All-terrain's. Off all the tires he was interested in, he didn't mention an all-terrain.

More siping, good icy/snowy condition manners...

He never mentioned whether he was against A/Ts or not. Didn't he label TrXus as one of his original choices?

I thought that was what you were lookin for smartass. "Oh no those are only sand tires". They seem to say they can climb rocks when i've seen them.

And as to offroading? My friend does a lot more harder **** than you climbing a lil trail in the georgia woods. Oh no, there's an a quarter inch of snow on the ground! Quick! Stock up and milk and bread!

I have no experience with the TrXus MT/Rs but i also really doubt you've seen the TrXus STS before other than you like to badmouth the brand.

i will say, ive put over 25K miles on my STS and they are wonderful tires, and very good off-road, but I would still suggest the Trxus MTs to him after getting em and running em so far for about 5K miles on my GFs truck. they are as good as the STS on road, if not better, and just as smooth and quiet. so from someone who has driven many miles on both tires I'd say go with the trxus MTs, when my STS wear out i'm considering the trxus MTs or the swamper SSRs, depends how i feel at the time i need to order.

Aaron, if you could read the entire post, the quote from interco tire about being a "serious rock climber" is for the M/T's, not the STS. Way to pay attention.

Do me a favor, throw some STS's on your truck, come to tellico with me and lets see you run lower 2 with those sweet rock crawling tires. Please.

BTW tellico is in NC, moron. Yet again you forgot to read everything before commenting.

if you want an excellent trail tire the mickey thompson baja claw is amazing, there is nothing (in my experience with this tire) that can touch it!!
