I still love mine. About 4500 miles on them at this point and I've rotated them once and they seem to be wearing well.

Well... I don't crawl my '14 2500, so I can't give you any input from that front. But they do pretty good on wet grass at my property

Is your 2500 a diesel (asking because of weight) and how do they do with towing? My F250 really needs new tires bad and I have been looking at these.

Kinda curious why would you put these on your daily driver if they don't see dirt? Seems very unnecessary.

Yes. They're great. That was one of the main reasons I went with them. They have the proper ratings for an 8K lb truck with 37" tires and 17" wheels.

It does see dirt. I just don't wheel it. Why would you buy a car that can do 160mph if all the speed limits are well below that? Because I can and I'm not poor.

Some time running 40s Load Range C

I bought these tires a month ago and have a few wheeling trips under my belt now so posting up some preliminary data.

Running the 40X13.50R17LT Load Range C on 17 Inch Trail Ready HD series Beadlocks. Running under a 5700Lb 2012 JKU.

Install Observations:
They were surprisingly light compared to my old 35x17 Toyo Open Country. In fact carrying one in each had the 40 and the 35 they felt about the same in weight. The unmounted Maxxis was definitely softer feeling in tread and carcass but the load rating differences probably has a lot to do with that.

Mounting was easy enough. They mounted fine. I did not balance them but the balance has been decent. I have run them over 80MPH hundreds of miles over several wheeling trips and no noticeable vibrations or tread wear.

I have covered loose dry terrain, rocks, and stumps. No snow or mud yet.
The contour very well to the terrain and grip very well. I almost never slip on terrain short of being hung up or climbing in significant loose dirt.

They do not chunk as advertised but I do see some small chipping in a few spots. Its a trade-off I am willing to make to run a softer tire than the Toyo.

Below is a few short videos of them in use recently. Not allowed to post links yet so this is the best I could do. Copy and remove the space after https :// if you want to see them.

Not sure if anyone else has these on sale but I just bought a set from my local supplier for $1300. 40 x 13.50 x 17. set of four. I was looking for some trail riding 40's and this deal came up. You guys may want to check with your local suppliers but for some reason mine were cheap. I even had the guy check with his manager to be sure price was correct. He called me back and said yes!

I buy from a wholesaler. PM me and I can get you a set. I do not want to clog up this thread with selling tires. I did not check on other sizes just 40's.

[INDENT]Worked great in red clay, smooth rocks and loose dirt here in Virginia. Wet rocks and creek crossings were no problem, even wet climbs coming out. I will have them out at Rausch Creek and AOAA this weekend. I expect they will do well. I had them at 12 psi.

Hows the road noise compared to Toyos? I know Toyos are essentially silent.

I have 4 trips out on these tires. Two in Virginia, two days in PA at Rausch Creek and AOAA park. Tires are holding up great with no real chunking. I went everywhere by buddy's went on red label Krawlers. Now they are not sticky but warm then up a little and they hook right up. The red labels had to heat up some before they worked on the wet rocks as well.

See this is what I fear with nittos, coopers, maxxis razr, and procomp mt2......guys are running them on tow rigs, so do I really want to put them on a trail only vehicle.....versus a swamper or trep, or creepy....but none of those are in the same price range either.

Like you stated, price. I run a 35x12.5x20 and with the factory 20" wheel, it makes the price a little higher. I happen to get them on sale but it was on of the tires I was looking at anyways.

I wouldn't necessarily worry what a tow rig runs in considering what to run on your rig.

From what I hear, they are selling pretty well. I was going to get my brother to get them for his truck but witg his factory 20" wheel, you can only get these tires down to a 35" and he was looking at a 33".

I am sure you wheel the same type of terrain that I do on the East Coast. Shirley and Gilstrap have good things to say about them as well on their race cars. Shirley sr has a set on his Jeepster and loves them. I do not thing you can go wrong for the price. Now if you really want to pay $$ get a set of sticky treps.

These hold the line and side hill better than Treps in my opinion if that is worth anything.

So i know you are sponsored by maxxis, but why pick the razr over all the other tire choices(even within the maxxis line)?
