Then I went through some mud holes like nothing. More then I expected from performance. The only downside is that I wont get to use my winch as much, and I have to get used to hitting the gas more since these grip like crazy. My AT's I had on spun when I punched it so I never stalled, thats not going to happen too easy with these.
man your making me excited to get then!

The TrXus MTs will do great in sand. In mud, they pack up faster than MTR/Ks. They are a lightweight tire w/strong sidewalls that will last you about 35,000 miles when rotated properly. The MTR/Ks are a little heavier.

Packed in, but the mud would stick to anything round.

Yeah I am SOA with 1.5" springs. I also put 1/2 shackles in the front to offset the 8.8 thicker tube in the back.

Yeah I do too much deep mud. So far I have had these in mud about 2 1/2 ft deep and have not had to use my winch. I had AT s and hate the way they refuse to clean out. When it was slop I would just spin tires and slide around.

Packed in BFG MTs


These KM2s didn't pack at all!




It looks like my BFG AT/KOs were the only tires still packed in with this glue-like mud.

The guy I wheel with the most has KM2. They are good, but suck on road. I considered getting those.
