I bought these tires a month ago, and they kick ass!

Muddy trails and rocks is all I have hit so far and they work really well!

Note: I did groove mine before I ever even ran them once, just to break up those huge ass lugs!
my stickies worked great in 18" of wet snow, havnt had them in any real snow yet

They work well in snow? Even though they are a sticky compound? That is good to know... I just assumed all Stickies sucked in snow after seeing the Red Labels at work...

Don't believe that guy. Stickies suck in the snow, period.

I bought a new set of 44 inch ground hawgs. New compound is soft very flexible. Grooving and sipping now .will post up pics as completed. These things are soft like an iroc. The old iron name has left the building.

That is what I thought... Even just 32* with no snow they suck... Lower temps just harden up the tread too much I think...

Exactly the same as the new 43 SXs then? I bought a set and after one trip the sharp edges on all of the lugs are gone already... I would say they are softer than an Irok, BUT the 42 Iroks and 43 SX are made in the same Ohio plant so I think it is the exact same rubber!

Sorry for hijack... Love the fact that tire manufacturers are listening to what the wheelers/crawlers actually want out of a tire!

Exactly, the soft porous compound of stickies literally freezes solid like ice basically.
