I know a guy who has them on a z71, they havent lasted very long, but thats probably cause he hasnt rotated them. just check the presure, and they should last more than 1 year, depending on your wheeling habbits, and how many miles you drive every day.

I've got over 40 000 miles on mine --- however I started with five, torn three sidewalls, but I currently have four with over 50% tread left on the truck, and a worn spare expect to get the rest of the season no problem and lots more miles..... guess you could say I figure 60 000miles with two full seasons of hard wheeling on 8. (Buy the 4wp warranty, it rocks, three replacments at ~$50 each)

315/75R16s -- GVW ~ 6200 lbs. Sidewalls seem comparable to other radials -- weak but not horrible.

I have 35k miles on mine and they still have good tread. This is on a light vehicle, a Ranger, and they are 35's. I think they are better suited for light vehicles. My buddy had some 315's on a Fullsize and they didn't last as long. Of course he was very rough on them.

Do you plan to wheel on these tires? Go over to tennesseeoffroad.com's BB and have a talk with Brew. He's the official strap-bitch whenever the trail is muddy.

Okay then...

Matt Brewer (Brew on the TOR BB) parked in the mud. No, wait... he's STUCK?


Both these pics are @ 10-12 PSI...


Old thread that's got no pics left... but it gives you the idea:

i run xterrains on my rig and will be putting them on my tow rig soon. from a wheeling standpoit i have run them in moab and at the hammers and i am very happy with them. as a milage issue i have seen them on street pounder rigs with 30k and they still seemed to be going fine. anyhow moving this to newbie tech since you are more intrested in milage than traction

I work for the company that owns Pro-comp. The Xterrain is made by Cooper tire. They are a great tire for the money. I have the 33/1250/15 on my jeep. I'm currently at about 30,000 miles with good tread wear. We are easy on warranties because we want you to buy them again. We sell a ton of them and get great feedback from all of our customers.

Xterrains do suck in the mud. I know several people up here in washington who run them and them dont clean out well at all. Just my .02 if you have mud in tennessee.

My freind has an XJ running the Xterrains in 31x12.5 size. He has open diffs, and has about 12,000 street miles on them, and they only have about 1/4 inch tread left. They wore really fast on his rig. Too fast for my liking.

I finally feel accepted! Thanks for the info guys, seems like 40,000 miles wouldn't be too much to expect if treated nicely, although mud traction looks pretty weak.

Is that jeep open diffed?

Just to add a bit more. I've got 20K on mine and still have over half the tread left, so 40K is a reasonable expectation. You'll likely only get four and an AT for a spare, they are directional so you've only got a 50-50 chance that you'll have the spare in the right rotation for the flat.

i've run bfg m't on my street trucks for years and i think the xterrain is every bit as good a "mud" tire as the bfg m/t.

that said if you don't care about streetability and need a real mud tire then get some boggers or swampers

Ahhh, too many choices. I need something I can run on the highway once a month for 300 miles. I'm not sure I could stand swampers for 300 miles at a shot. Too many tire options, so little time-PhattieD

If you don't have the xterrains pumped up to 35#, they can be a bit loud on the road too, not nearly as bad as the swampers, but noticable.

ProComp is seeing consistant mileage OVER thier warranties.

We are getting great results out of our competition tires and those tires are doing some serious double-duty on the CJ-7 as it does time on the street and the courses.

The X-Terrain will get you great mileage but really it depends on how well you care for your tires as far as alignment, air pressure, and driving style goes. Anyone that tells you they can judge a tire's quality by their results on a 4x4 that sees trail is most likely full of it.

I have 305/70-16's on my Chevy. With about 12k on them, they look like they'll go 40k easy.
