    Does anyone run or know anything about these tires? I was wanting X-Terrians but these look pretty cool to and might go though mud better(big plus here in FL)I also like the size 13.5 wide in sted of 12.5 if it makes any differance http://www.maxxis.com/getImage.asp?FileID=3389
    If anyone has pictures of these on a truck I would really like to see them

    Seems like Swampers are a better way to go all around, and they have so many options and variations I'm sure you could find a size you like.

    swampers seem HEAVY and I really need a light tire that does great in mud and sand and nothing wider then a 13.5 and nothing taller then a 35.

    bfg a/ts +mud=crap
    bfg a/ts +mud with water on top=pretty decent

    the maxxis mudzillas have more room between the treads and would probably clean better than mickeys..

    I love my Xterrains they kick A$$ in mud but not so good when you get into a swamp after those HUGE tractors with the 2 huge back tires go thur it bush hoggin for the power company. I was sittin on my frame with no tires touching anywhere it was cool but at night and no camera. We never take the cameras with us for some stupid reason Infact i went mudding yesterday and im taking the pics today of the aftermath. It was fun i ran over a crushed fliped over jeep that has been there for like 5 years and got the back driver tire like 3ft off the ground it was tipsy and fun. Get some Xterrains. Here is a old pic.

    great in mud and sand just doesnt work. Pick one or the other or something in between.
