    I don't have the Xterrin.. I bought the mud terrians right before they came out with those.. I love the m/t. They kick the mud out good.. I have about 8000 miles on them...Dan

    If it ain't broke.......Don't fix it....

    I bought them a couple of weeks ago and love the things. However, I haven't been off-road yet still have some mods to do to the body of the truck. I put a 4" lift and need a little (very minor) fender cutting on the front. I got the 35x12.5. They look great and ride great on the road and are very quiet. They handle great in wet weather. Supposedly they have a 50,000 mile warranty on them also. If you are thinking of buying them check out 4wheelparts.com. They have a special buy3 get 1 free and shipping is $85 for all the tires also if you don't live in California then you shouldn't have to pay any sales tax. This is something to thing about. One of the four wheel drive mags just reviewed the tire in October. They tried it in all conditions and couldn't find anything that it didn't perform well in.

    They said it performed well in every area excpet for "goo".

    For the price and the looks, I'd say go for it.

    I also run the pro comp m/t's (35x12.5). Ive heard a lot of people saying that it's a crappy tire, but after weelin with some buddies with BFG's and super swampers i would have to say it's a darn good tire.
    They totally proved themselves last weekend up at spring creek weelin in the snow, they seemed to never give up, just when all 4 were spinning and you think your stuck they just dug down and kept going!!!
    Any way if the X's are anything like the M/t's they should be a great tire. (just wish they would come out with a 38")

    Yeah I hear you! I wish they had 38's. That is what I really want but I really want a set of Xterrains. Its the combination of an excellent road tire and hopefully a good performer off road. I hate to say it but since my blazer is a daily driver, it sees more on road than off. When I do go off, I like to get serious. Thats why I wonder if will be good enough. Thanks for the info!

    A couple folks I know have the MT's. They look nice and seem to perform well, but they dont have full depth sipes. My buddy has 5k on them and the sipes are almost gone. I am a firm believer in sipes for both road and rock traction.

    I suppose I like the look of the Xterrain based on the fuill sipes. I think it will be better than a BFG MT. I just hope the price is right.

    I have the Mt's and I haven't been pleased with their sidewalls. The traction is great but I expected more from the sidewalls. They're not holding up as well as my BFG's or my Gumbo Monter Mudders did in the rocks.

    I've been thinking of getting a set for my jeep. I wonder how they will go in the snow and mud though.

    We have the Mt's on our toyota. 35x12.5 We have had them since March or so. I have to say they are a great tire. We have had no complaints with them on or off road. They ride nice..are wearing well, and wheeled very good.
