    I just wanted to let any C Springs wheelers know that Travis at 4 Wheel Parts on Academy is one striaght up and very helpful guy.
    He got me a set of the new Interco TRXUS STS tires, and they are very cool. Not meant for mudding and rock climbing, but since that truck is a daily driver, I needed something that was good on ice, snow, sand and pavement.
    Travis was willing to just talk about stuff, let me browse through the catalogs, and just seemed to care about helping people out.
    If you're in the neighborhood, check out the shop.

    How do those tires work on the street? I was looking at them, but I heard that Interco uses a softer rubber, so even their all terrains wear out faster. I hit the sand and snow a lot, but also drive to San Diego from San Luis Obispo a lot too, so I need a street-friendly tire. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    Don't know about the STS, but went to the local shop (not 4WPW) yesterday and talked to them about the TRXUS MT's. Several guys around these parts runnin' them w/ about the same wear as a BFG MT or Goodyear MTR, or so I was told. Looks like what I'll be getting.

    I just installed a set of 33" TrXus M/T last week.
    People Ive talked to who tried them say they work very well in all conditions. Yes, they are a softer tire and Interco rates them around 30,000. As with any soft tire, keep things aligned, balanced and rotated.
