Anybody running the 40" Maxxis Razr tires?

I was looking at the new Maxxis Razr tires in s 40". They are priced really well. I was curious to how they do in mud and east coast slop? They dont look very luggy... wondering how they dig.

I ran a set last fall. Red Virginia clay, Rausch creek mud and rock, Anthrasite park as well. No problems, hooked up well in mud, rock, wet or dry. Cleaned out good even in low speed mud. I tried to get stuck on slippery climbs out of creeks at lower speeds and low wheel spin. No problems. No chunking on rocks at higher tire speeds and smoke!

I sold them off this spring do to lack of use. I run 37" treps for racing.

Id prefer Treps, but im not paying the ridiculous price Maxxis asks. The Razrs are priced competitively because im guessing theyre made overseas. Looking at the 40" version of the Razr, I just wish they had larger lugs on the edge wrapping around the sidewall. They look really plain jane.... almost like a west coast dry rocks type of tire. Im eastern OH by Pittsburgh, and all our trails are wet and slick. I was curious to know if they were any good.

My other choice is the 40" SX2. Or the 41.5 Rocker Radial. Both very heavy tires.
Was also considering the Pro Comp Extreme MT in a 40". Still not sure.
Thanks for the reply

I ran westco(Latrobe) and AOAA this year with 40 nitro trail grappler and they straight up blow my old seampers always. And the pit bulls that were with us imo. I would go with nitro over the sx2 or rockers. The mt2 seems great from what I have seen, and the razr looks awesome.

Do the 40" Nittos measure a true 40"? What width wheel is best?

sure unmounted at 40 psi.......not at trail pressures under weight

Mount it on a wheel but don't mount the wheel on a vehicle, is what I am assuming he was going after. AKA no weight on it. But yes, you're right
