The truxxus MTs are actually good tires for on road use. My girlfriend has had them for 30,000 miles now. They take some work to balance, so most tire jockeys won't put in the effort to get them balanced correctly but they do balance out. They're starting to get loud now and warn out in the center so we are shopping for something new, but they will still make great off-road tires when aired down. There are definitely better tires for road tires, and they are called all-terrains.

my odometer says about 13k, factor in the math and maybe 14,500 - 15k?

the front 2 are really worn because i let the old coils on the coil overs sag and that just KILLED the tires, to the point where it was almost noticeable. that and all the high speed runs on gravel roads didn't do good things for them either.

the back 2 have just under 1/2 tread if i would have to guess, and they've been smoked on rocks, i've had chunks ripped out of them.. the usual off-road wear

That sucks man.. those things arn't cheap, least for me. So with all that seems to be they held up pretty good ayy? I'm gonna be ordering mine this weekend. 31's though but still sweet Mine won't be taking that much abuse though ha just daily driving and occasionally some offroading nothing to major.... I think they will look good with the 3 inch body lift which i'll be throwing on some piont in the winter.

yea currently it doesn't see any dirt except shoulders on the road.. and being back in texas the truck won't see nearly as much offroad action as it did the last year in Wyoming.. which is depressing for me but it means **** wont be constantly breaking (until i get a tow rig/trailer and this is strictly a toy... then let the carnage begin )


I like them.. if all 4 were worn out i would probably get some TSLs or Claws but since only 2 are i'm gonna get 2 more and then try and destroy the back 2 and cash in on the tire warranty

Yeah man Wyoming must have had some crazy off roading spots eh? Yeah they look like a nice set of tires I rarely take my truck offroading mostly just drive it on the street so I think these tires will last me a good bit of time and miles. Yeah thats the way to do it, just burn them off and get the warranty :) I dig the baja claws too..

Pretty much just daily driving.. even though I don't drive this truck every day I switch back n forth between my other ranger and my new one. Probably around 60 miles daily when im commuting to work and school..

its not a mileage warranty.. i'm looking to slash the sidewalls on a rock, or if you run them at too low of a pressure for too long and damage the sidewall..


and not *crazy* wheelin spots, but just outside town were hundreds of miles of dirt service roads in the national forest.. you had to go to Colorado for any decent wheeling

I think that is a good idea. Mickey Thompson makes a great tire. The Claws I had rode really good. They were loud, but I love that.

Disagree
My MT/R's lasted plenty and still have life

with how light our trucks are I think bfg's, mt/r's & mtz's are the best choices that will last 30 to 40K if you take care of them.

I make the rules BTW haha
