Great mud tyres.

published

Had these tyres on my first np300 and they are a great tyre . On road they were a little bit noisy but not to bad for a MT. On road these tyres have been the best in mud that i have ever used . No need to drop tyre pressure's as the grip is outstanding. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Happy Customer

published

I have just purchased a second set of tyres after getting 95000km (4 tyres no spare) out of the first set with no punctures, lost tread blocks, sidewall cuts or bead breaks. Standard size 235/85R16 10 ply at 45/70psi @ 110 hwy front/rear and 35/45 psi @ 80 dirt/gravel. Travelled often at GVM. Used extensively on sand at 12psi and gravel and bush tracks. Can dig in quickly in sand depending on driving style. Many highway kilometers to Sydney too. I avoid mud where possible but I have never been stuck when i have been in mud. They do wear unevenly across the tread so have had to rotate to avoid excessive vibration. Happy repeat customer although the price has gone up.

Boghorns are bang for bucks!

published

You will pay much more for other brands, but on dodgy terrain these tyres stick like glue! You can spend heaps more, but value for money wise these are the duck's guts! Mud, sand, rocks, snow all get eaten by these bad boys. Easy to get hold of, my tyre bloke says they are easy to fit.

Maxxis MT 762

published

Have tried a few brands of mud tyres on the old Lux in 265/75R16 and recently got some 17" rims so decided on the 275/70R17 Maxxis MT762 8ply and straight away found the ride comfort no where near as harsh as the 16" 10plys. You can feel the lugs twist as you apply power down and have increased my pressures to suit my driving style. No noisier than any other mud I've had from Mickey's to Generals. Best wet grip was General Grabber MT. Best steering response is Mickey MTZ's followed by Maxxis MT762.
Never had dramas in sand just air down to suit.
Will see how they go km wise.
Just nice to have some ride comfort instead of the bone jarring ride

BIG HORN

published

Are the tyres durable? = they are not as durable as other tyres of the same price, they need that little bit more on the side to make them come up to scratch with other muddies and stop the chaffing of the side wall, but money for value they are very good
How do the tyres impact the performance of your car? = these tyres lack performance in certain conditions that other tyres I have had did not lack --- just like all muddies they are dangerous on wet roads so slow down and don't blame the tyres when you slide of the road especially at roundabouts and yes they are NOISY deal with it

Amazing tyre

published

Done 70,000kms on the tyre and still have another 5,000kms left to go. They have been up the Cape (frenchmans and old tele track) and numerous trips to cooktown, creb track and dalbeg in the burdekin. They have had a fair amount of the black bitumen mileage too. Great tyre would recommend to anyone

Excellent value and performance

published

255/65R17 had these as off-road tires on a second set of rims for my 2006 Grand Cherokee. Excellent value for money, fantastic grip and very hard wearing on all surfaces. Got a couple of plugs in them now from some rough rocks and got them down to 12psi on the sand dunes before one started to leak with sand ion the bead but was going pretty hard and climbing with corners so impressed all the same with the performance. Noisy on the blacktop but that's to be expected when you look at the tread. I reckon probably put 20kms on them and minimal wear so far, maybe 2mm.? All round i would recommend definitely value to money for what you get no question.

My favourite MT (Mud Terrain) tyre hands down!

published

Best value for money Mud Terrain tyres on the market today as far as I'm concerned, I own a Nissan Patrol GU that had the wobbles with other brands, went to the Big Horn's (size LT255/85x16) and got rid of the wobbles significantly!, would recommend these tyres to any Nissan Patrol GU driver that gets that annoying wheel vibration at certain speeds, good looking, great off-road tyres as well! on my 3rd set and still very pleased with them.

SECOND SET NOW

published

For bang for buck I recon they are the best. have been to Frazer Island on the beach in hot dry conditions deep soft sand no problem. I had Patrol loaded so much that the rear was riding on the bump stops. I have found them to be at least 40% better than the Bridgestone rubbish the patrol comes with in the rain. go figure.. a mud tyre that's excellent in the rain. wear is ok, I am getting about 50K out of them mainly on road. they are quiet for muddies but when they wear down they get noisier. grip off road is awesome.

Maxxis m/t-762 big horn

published

Well I have been running a set of maxxis big horn m/ts 32's on 15/8 rims....on my old rangie for 6 years admittedly only doing about 10,000km per year but highway and off road in the victorian high country
Extremely good value for money do what they are meant to and wear well, value for dollar hands down over ridiculously priced BFG and coopers.
Now put a set of 17" on my mazda bt50.....again very happy at295 a corner vs 450-500 for others.....

Balance issues

published

Had 33" Big Horns fitted to my Hilux. They were great for the first 10,00km or so then I had vibration issues. Had all the fixes done, wheel alignments, balances, rotations, tail shaft balance, centre bearing chnage etc. Finally I managed a look at the tyres on the balance machine, they were flat spotted in a couple of locations. Finally after spending a fortune on the fixes my tyre retailer managed to get a partial refund.
Good traction in the mud and rocks, not too noisy. No block loss, bag out well for sand but at lower than expected pressures.
Balance issues, uneven wear.

Great for all conditions

published

Can walk the talk

published

Had set of 32" on my patol gu the last year and half and they look great and go well. will dig you into the the sand if you spin em too hard (driver error) but well aired down does the trick. great in the mud and those side walls grip well. not too loud on the road. the wear rate looks fine too after 15k of mainly bitumen
Price, wear rate, great in mud n rocks
Avoid digging in on the sand


Overall they are good.

published

Had these tyres on my patrol for a few years now and they still going well, been across the Simpson desert and never let me down, side walls are tough and bag out when let down. Good grip in the wet compared to other tyres i've tried. Little noisy on the highway but you gotta expect this from a mud tyre.
Using 315/75/16 and they do grip well off road and are pretty good on the beach as long as you let em down to 20 or less.
Quality
They need balancing more as they get older like most big tyres.


Tyre Disaster

published

What a waste of money. These tyres are a good example of how not to make a tyre. They are loud on-road and they don't grip on icy or wet roads. I spoke to the distributer who refused to help in any way with the tyre. Take my advice use these tyres as a swing of the kids, but not on your 4X4.

Noisy, delicate, usless on wet roads.

I would like you to find a mud tyre yet alone any tyre that will do well in ice conditions its a mud tyre not a rally tyre

MrX if you needed tires for wet or icy roads that need to be quiet why would you pick a mud tire???

Terrible - Avoid at all costs.

published

I have a 1998 Pathfinder and I have done over 200,000 is all terrain and my car has never had any handling problems. Since I Have fitted the big horn tyres, my car has become lethal in wet conditions, when driven on road. I have had one accident, where the car simply ran off the road as I cornered on a wet road - the front wheels completely lost traction in the wet. I have had another near miss, again when driving on wet roads, the front wheels aqua-planed and again all steering control was lost. I am very disappointed and consider the tyres at best a complete wast of money and at worst, a death trap waiting to happen.

Absolutely no grip on road in the wet.

Have to agree with NatDe. These tyres are a complete waste of money. Their side walls are delicate and yes, they are completely useless on wet roads. Would rather save my money for second hand re-treds, rather then these pieces of rubbish.

You could elaborate a little more on the answer. given that I'm evaluating installing that pneumatic measure, to get out of the tires rim 17

Foresters are just an Impreza in a different dress. They aren't an off-road vehicle and the AWD system isn't designed in a way to handle what big heavy muddies have to offer. Just go with a decent all terrain like the Fallen Wildpeak'. You'll also run the risk of damage to the centre diff and the weak as rear diff, unless you upgrade to the R180 LSD found in the Gen4 Liberty 3.0R-B

How do the side wall handle sticks,rocks etc has anyone experienced any issues in this area.

Honestly they are ok but a little soft they need more tread on the side walls like the 4x4 TRA6873R especially in mud, the tread on the side also protects the tyre from sticks, rocks slashing them.

I had one speared and penetrated through the wall by a twig about the diameter of a pencil. The tyre stayed up and got me home. I don't know how any other tyre would have managed in the circumstances.

Good to know that, thanks. I just recently acquired a pre owned trailer and it had these Maxxis 753 Bravos fitted. I guess ill use them till they need to be replaced.

I haven't had them on a trailer, but I imagine that the would be great though. They have performed well for me on a 4wd ute, 4wd Wagon and also a short wheelbase 4wd, and varied loads from nothing to fully loaded with over a ton on the ute.
