I’ve heard the same. Maxxis says that too. These will just be for summer

Don't quote me on it, but I believe that red labels are the only open cell sticky, which is what makes them terrible. (been there) I don't think the maxxis are.

This is straight off the maxxis website -

“Based on the Trepador Bias, the legendary Trepador Competition uses the same construction and pattern design, but features a sticky race tread compound for the ultimate in off-road traction. Due to the nature of the compound, it is not recommended for use in winter conditions”

You're right, I Googled it and plenty of people saying they are terrible in the snow. I was thinking about the 43 sx, I believe they are closed cell and are about the same as the dot version in the snow.

Got tangled up in a couple trees on a night run last night

Apparently these steelies can’t handle a little frozen dirt.

What pound coil rates did you end up with? Really like those wheels. Do you know the offset and backspacing? I am building my Dana 60 now. I ordered my high steer from barnes 4wd, Weld on like yours.. I wanted to run a 4.75 backspacing with a 0 offset. but they claim it will hit the weld on mounts. I like the wheel tucked in like yours.

Definitely a sweet truck and wheels but “ tucked in” is a bit of a reach

Damn if my wheels are tucked in....

150/250


These wheels are 17x8, 4.25 BS. They clear with lots of room. The methods I had on before were 17x8.5, 4.75 BS,(zero offset$ and they were close the artec highsteer. But they did. Had about 1/4”.

The steels stick out a bit less than the methods. But still poke about 10” past the body per side.

Steels

I am referring to the Methods. When I say tucked in I am talking about the wheel it self not the track width. Thanks for the info tho.

Called trail ready Monday. They told me they still don’t have the blanks for the wheels yet. 2 weeks maybe. Originally they told me completed wheels would ship jan 2. They did say, my wheels “are first to be made when we get the shipment”

Is this normal or am I getting fucked around?

That lead time is normal, I sell these all the time and they are usually backordered. They used to be 3/4 month lead times.

Its pretty normal for everything to be backordered in Jan because of KOH. Methods got leadtimes like that to.

Thanks for posting and single handedly making the Tacoma section worth looking at. It's awesome to see someone actually use their rig for what it was made for.
