    these are the new interco Trxus STS all-terrains, these are damn freaky looking!!! good for sand/snow maybe? they will be made up to 44"s !!!! Creepy looking if you ask me.......

    look under the trxus muds on this page:

    They just look like regular swampers with the tread blocks close together if you ask me.

    to me these look like a cross between the SSR's &amp; the new BFG's... there are definately some differences... more sipping, and it does look like the lug pattern is tighter.

    yeah, I doubt they would work ell at all in any type of mud, they look like they would perform best in sand or snow, and maybe on slickrock type stuff. Lots of good foward biting edges.....but they look like they might slide damn near strait sideways..........can you picture a k5 lifted 12 inches rolling up on a set of those in the 44" variety? i dont think I could hold back a giggle.....

    --matt
    P.S.-According to the Interco site, the 44" tire will be 21" wide!!! Holy Sh!t!!

    Them look like would be a pretty spiffy desert tire (Any Interco reps who want an honest unbiased ((Or biased - your choice)) review of these tires for said purpose may EMail me at pugncyn@route66web.com) Similar to the M/T Baja Claw.

    I'm going to be looking at new tires.
    Thinking of getting new 44" boggers again
    They're great

    I keep hearing rumours on the 46" bogger

    Has anyone heard if this is actually available?

    My buddy put some 31x10.50 TRUXXUS's on his 2000 K1500. I've ridden with him and they are great on the road (they better be for 31's). They are not loud and the truck doesn't ride rough at all. The best part of all is that they still throw golf-ball size chunks of mud.

    Kinda look like goodyear mtr's. The all terrain is freaky. I like it because its different. Kind of like Cepeks

    35" All-Terrains... I don't get it.

    I'm a bit on the nutty side .When it comes to stuff I like I get carried away. You'd probably have a blast wheeling with us. We tend to explore how far the rig will go. :)

    I called Interco this morning. No 46" boggers.
    Figured if I was going to get new tires I'd check out what else was out there
