The Maxxis Buckshot Mudders? That's one heck of an aggressive, deep lugged tire. I've only seen them under a Suzuki Samurai that was used strictly as an off road rig. I wonder how they would hold up under pavement pounding and our weight. Maybe they would rate right up there with other mud tires with that softer compound? Very interesting.
You know something, I just looked through their website and saw that Bighorn tire. It looks similar to the Buckshot, but has that "siping" throughout the treads contact surface with the road. That "siping" is for wet weather traction on pavement. I don't know how those tiny little slits make that much of an improvement on wet roads, but they do cut down on things like hydroplaning. Just some food for thought before a possible hydroplaning incident with a vehicle our size on some narrow back road
I've got about 30,000 on them now and still got a little rubber left.
Hmmm, depending on how much driving one does, 30,000 miles can rack up in a year or so. I guess those big mileage numbers will be a thing of the past with these damn fuel prices though
How has those tires held up other than wear? Like dry rot issues, belt shifting issues, etc.? Towing/hauling? Noise factor comparison? When it's time would you stick with them or move on to something else with similar features? How they handle in the rain, dry pavement, etc.?
I pull a 45hp tractor on a 22' gooseneck, and I've had them just under a year and they have impressed me. They sing a little but wht mud tire dont? I'm trying to save up for a set of BFG AT's they do a lil better in the rain.

I'm trying to save up for a set of BFG AT's they do a lil better in the rain.
That's what I thought, which was the reason for me posting that Bighorn tire. They might be just as good as that Buckshot, but better in the rain. I wonder if BFG's AT cost the same or are noticeably more than the Bighorn. One thing about the BFG AT's, they wear like iron with great road traction anytime. But, if you have no complaints with the Maxxis, that's pretty good. I just figured they had good off road tires, never even thought of them as a road tire company. Just gives us more options :thumbsup
No mud for my Dooge, it pulls the off-roaders to the trails and even with that, the off-roaders do not see mud. It's all about the rocks I stopped playing in mud puddles when I was three I'm in the market for "E" rated 35" (more of the aggressive look, than ye ole' street tire) tires for the Dooge, that's why all the road manner question.
