X2 on the TrXus MTs. I have them and love them in any weather condition(s). Never a problem with them, even at 0 Psi. Great road wear, quiet, but the only downside is finding them locally and the price. Either way, I'd buy another set without thinking twice.on my tj I ran truxus mt's and they were AMAZING IN THE SNOW and not too loud on the road , I would buy them again if I only put 20,000k street k's a year on it
was it the potholes in Kits or the parts on your Jeep that made you think the Trxus MTs were loud??? oke: they are VERY quiet on the street especially for a tire that has such meaty outer lugs an lets face it... they are made by Interco... enough saidI just bought some Duratracs 35s a couple of weeks ago and really like them. They are very quiet and after putting on 2500kms I seemed to have saved a bit on gas too. They are only 2 ply sidewalls though but since I'll only be using them mainly as winter tire that's fine with me. I've had them out on a few trails and they worked really well and they have excellent on road manners, just remember that sharp rocks will not be your friend (sidewalls).
My designated offroad tires are Truxs MT's and I sure wouldn't buy them again. they are heavy, very loud, not great in mud and suck on side hill action plus they are hard to get and expensive. I've run them at 0 lbs with my Staun internal beadlocks and they were great in the snow but I think they are very happy between 5 - 8 lbs with a good patch. Somebody above said he ran them a 0 lbs without beadlocks and that makes me shake my head. Truxs like the Duratracs are only 2 ply sidewalls unless you're running 37s or 18in rims. I will groove them so I can get 1 more season out of them then turf them.
I had the use of some 35 MTRs with kevlar on beadlocks a couple of month ago and thought they were really great. They worked alot better than my Truxs in everything except deep snow and they will be my next offroad tire. I ran them at 0lbs and they were fine but I think the sweet spot is around 7 lbs where you get the good patch. You can get them anywhere (depending on size) and are way quieter than the Truxs, have better on road manners than the Truxs and way less expensive. Side hilling was also a whole lot easier too. You also get 3 ply sidewalls with kevlar, how can ya go wrong .
Figure out what your use will be then decide, for a weekend tire I think the Duratracs will be hard to beat but for a full on 4x4 tire with good road manners the MTRs with kevlar are really good tires. This is of course just my opinion, good luck.
That was me that said that. I have an OBA system so I wanted to try them at 0 Psi. Sure enough they worked just fine. I would feel better about doing it with the Staun's like Robin, but it was a good test. 6-8 Psi seems to be the perfect pressure (for me anyways) for the contact patch that Robin mentions.Somebody above said he ran them a 0 lbs without beadlocks and that makes me shake my head.
