Wild Country TXR's

Has anyone had any dealings with these or heard anything about them? Looks like a aggressive all-terrain or a very mild mud terrain. I have seen a couple of guys running them in the area, but never been able to ask them how they like them. I've had the BFG's before and loved them but $$$ is a little tight. I definetly need new tires before the snow falls and just thought I would start shopping around. I have found that I can get a set of 4 285/75/16 for around $550. They way It looks it will either be these or Cooper S/T. Any info is greatly appreciated!!

TXR's are a VERY good tire for me here in the Northwest. Good mud traction, good road noise(virtually none), and they come pinned w/ studs. I have 265/75R16s on my '01. I bought them with 75% tread and these tires don't have good tread life. I've got almost a year on these tires, and now they are at approx. 60%, granted, I DO LOVE BURNOUTS!!! These tires I LOVE. Awesome for wheeling, but of course they are not as good as BFG M/Ts or Swampers.....but this is a VERY good around town tire. I won't go for anything else. They are good w/ mud, okay with rocks, and look good.

They are more like an aggressive all terrain with good mud capabilities. Les Schwaab, the local place where Wild Countrys are sold, calls them traction tires.

I got mine for $130 used. New, they are about $155 each. Winter rolls around, I'll be getting a new set w/ my new Xtreme alloys 16x8s.

Good Luck

i think we have something simular to those, i know that they are wild country, on our plow truck at work, an F250, and i hate them. In the snow they don't grip and they slide on the snow, and ice. We even put in a crate of rock salt, in the bed, didn't make a difference, still no traction, with or without the plow.
Unfortunatly, we cannot stud our snow tires on it[new $$pavement], plus we use it all year round to move shop equipment.
I'll tell you tomorrow if those are the same or not though.

the tread pattern looks the same as the wild spirit all terrain, they have a mud terrain thats alot more aggressive, the tires are sold mostly at farm supply stores around here.
