They seem to be pretty good overall as a "daily driver/wheeler" compromise tire. I've seen them on several trucks and they look great.

They do have the standard Interco problem: balancing. The fact is that Interco has very inconsistent molding in their tires and balancing issues are common. We have folks on here who have experienced that with several Interco models, and the TrXus are no eXception, lol.

They may be better recently for all I know.

Take a look at the Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ's as well. They are a siped mud tire and quite similar to the TrXus MT design. I'm running them and have too little experience with them to make a blanket recommendation -- but so far I'm really happy with them on the street, and satisfied with them offroad. Certainly they seem to outperform both my Cooper S/T's I had (less void and not so much a "mud" tire), as well as the General Grabber MT's (unsiped) I had.

I had them in 33x12.50 and 34x12.50. I love them. I'd recommend them to anyone. They do great in all weather plus they wear very well for an MT

I'd LOVE to hear a final review of those tires (once you get more time on them). As I'm in the same pickle; tire decisions. Baja MTZ's look like they perform very well, MT/R's (faithfull), and Interco TrXus M/T's seem all good. I'm just having trouble deciding...oh well, I'll decide when it comes down to it

Installed them on my Brother Grants 04 level II on 15x10 mickeys with a 3" body lift in 33x12.5x15. in mud rain stuff like that these tires KICK ***, balancing SUCKS bad you will get vibrations from these tires no way around it there Interco they never balance good, tire wear is just so so just about like any other mudder you get like 1-2 years out of them

Sorry if I missed it, but is there actually a r-f member review on the trxus mud terrains? I read a lot of review from jeep forums, and they are pretty mixed. Just wondering what the members on here thought, I trust the opinion here more than those guys.

They are considered some of the most "streetable" of Interco's tires, though.

people dont get mud terrains for a good ride. they get them for offroad. if you want a good ride, you need a car.

this is true. they are a compromise for a daily driver. not a very good one though. if you want a good street tire thats capable of offroad, look into an allterrain

Thanks for the info! Thats exactly what I was looking for.

I've heard a lot of BAD things about the tires, and few good...so you answered my question.
