INTERCO TrXus Mud Terrain Tire....I ran these for a while on road and they were quiet and did great in any weather. I have the ATs now and they are good but seem to stick quite as well in the icy/snow. I think the tred gets clogged easier on the ATs which is causing more slip. But they are good looking and do well. The TrXus look mean and seemed to wear well.

If they do everything you want them to do then they are a perfect tire for you. Some may want more so they may not be good enough for them. For me Those duratracs would be excellent as I want a excellent tire for snow and decent in mud. Offroading maybe once a week. So those duratracs seem pretty damn amazing to me as well. Catch my drift?

Your posts remind me of this story:

Quote:
Years ago Patrick J. O'Haire joined one of my classes. He had a little education, and how he loved a scrap! He had once been a chauffeur, and he came to me because he had been trying, without much success, to sell trucks. A little questioning brought out the fact that he was continually scrapping with and antagonizing the very people he was trying to do business with. If a prospect said anything derogatory about the trucks he was selling, Pat saw red and was right at the customer's throat. pat won a lot of arguments in those days. As he said to me afterward, "I often walked out of an office saying: 'I told that bird something.' Sure I had told him something, but I hadn't sold him anything...

...Mr O'Haire became one of the star salesmen for the White Motor Company in New York. How did he do it? Here is his story in his own words: "If I walk into a buyer's office now and he says: 'What? A White Truck? They're no good! I wouldn't take one if you gave it to me. I'm going to buy the Whose-It truck,' I say, "the Whose It is a good truck. If you buy the Whose-It, you'll never make a mistake. The Whose Its are made by a fine company and sold by good people.'

"He is speechless then. There is no room for an argument. If he says the Whose-It is the best and I say sure it is, he has to stop. He can't keep on all afternoon saying, 'It's the best' when I'm agreeing with him. We then get off the subject of the Whose-It and I begin to talk about the good points of the White truck.

"There was a time when a remark like his first one would have made me see scarlet and red and orange. I would start arguing against the Whose-It; and the more I argued against it, the more my prospect argued in favor of it; and the more he argued, the more he sold himself on my competitor's product.

"As I look back now I wonder how I was ever able to sell anything. I lost years of my life in scrapping and arguing. I keep my mouth shut now. It pays"
~ excerpt from Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People"

You're not convincing anyone the Mud Terrain is better. Only convincing them that their choice was right.

That would just tell me there are alot of people that dont wheel anything decent, or have never tried another type of tire. It reminds me of when i first started wheeling and my first set of tires were BFG AT's. I thought they were the ***. The I decided to get something super agressive, Thornbirds (Pethetic, I know but thats what my friends said).... I thought they worked well to untill I actually got a clue and ran my first set of TSL's. Finally I figured it out. When you are doing things in 2WD you needed 4WD for before it finally started to dawn on me. Maybe you can tell just be looking at the tread if it will perform offroad or not.

If all terrains are so great off road explain why, because there are tons of agressive tires that excell on road and off. BFG KM2's, GY Wrangler MT/R with kevlar to name a couple. There is nothing about an all terrain besides the name that should suggest it will work well off road. Like I said before they are a glorified street tire. You wanna buy a crappy "supposed to be" off road tire be my guest. Its not my money I'm pissing away.

Most of my offroading is mudding and in my experience with the all terrains the cracks fill with mud and it become a big doughnut and I get stuck.

What's better a mickey thompson set or mud terrains?

What Mickey Thompsons and what Mud terrains are you asking about? IMO for on and offroad use you cant get any better than the GY Wrangler MTR w/ Kevlar. Quiet and smooth on the road (once you get them balanced by a good shop), great in the rain (have not had them in snow yet personally). Looks like I will get about 30K out of them. Offroad they clear out pretty good in even the nasty red clay mud, have great bite on the rocks (I air mine down to 7 PSI, and the sidewalls are tough as nails.

Not everyone has the same needs in a tire.
There is some good info here...Off Road Tire Guide for Mud and All Terrain Tires - Offroaders.com
