the TrXuS MT is a radial.. I ran 35X12.5 for awhile, and absolutely loved them.. SO quiet on the road... I unfortunetly needed to go bigger, and they only are made in up to a 37" size.. And the 37" only fits a 16" rim which I will not run..


There are alot of guys who have these around here...

Im running 34 - 12.50 TrXus currently , they are as quite as a street tire , excellent all around performance . Really shine on rock .

Down side for me is wear . They seem to be wearing pretty quick .

The 37" TrXus fits 15, 16 and 17" wheels, and is actually taller than 37".

I have them on my Jeep, like the traction they provide, but they seem to wear fast compared to other radials I've ran in the past. But that wont stop me from buying a set again.

wearing fast eh?
how fast would you say.... How many miles you guys got on them?
how many do you think you'll have on them before they need replacing?



how would you rate them in the snow compared to other tires comparably... i know they are mud tires and are not goign to be the best... just curious how they compare


how do you guys like them in the mud?

A budyy of mine is running them on his daily driver yota and they are wearing pretty good, but i'd imagine on a heavy full size, they wouldn't last long at all. Not that any real mud tire would though.

They are excellent in snow . Im comparing them to the wear i got on a set of TSL , same 4x4 . TSL wore better .

Miles on the tires for me is not the point . I dont drive the Grand a lot of miles but the tires see a lot of hell . Tellico , Canada

Interco's website list all three sizes being out, but they could just be anticipating them being out.

I got around 30K on my 33" trXus and they are holding up pretty well. They are a good all around tire. My only complaint has been in the mud, they don't clean as good as I would like.

Can I make a comment about your vehicle fitergirl?

remember, the normal jeep will get more miles then fitter's, because she has aprox 13,038 tools she keeps in there at all times...

:miff:

I have about 9,000 miles and they show barely any wear at all. When I go up to a 35" nex yea r I will by the same tire.

I have no complaint with these tires at all. As far as them not cleaning out in the mud, they are 1,000,000,000 time better than the MTR's I had. Those sucked.
