TrXus STS A/T's opinions?

I have not heard very much about the STS AT's from interco. What kind of experiences are people having with them? I'm looking for a good A/T tire. I liked the Procomp Xtreme A/T's, but they are HEAVY (80#!), and 13.50's... Don't need a tire that wide/heavy. BFG's AT... the 285/65/20E's seem to be my only other bet.

They are awesome pulling tires for hard tracks, but Dfurman tells me they suck for road wear.

thats why I really like the BFG's.... tried, tested and true. But I want a 35x12.50R20 "E!" dang it. so the 285's.... one size up are my next best choice from them. I am going to call BFG and see if they do make the E rated 35" for a 20" wheel, at least let them know there is a market for them.

BFG's TKO's are great tires. What about the Nitto Terra Grapplers? I run the AT's from Procomp myself. They seem to last forever also.

the xtreme at comes in a smaller size 12.5 wide but the sts dont last long and the xtreme at has a 40,000 mile tread warranty i have had some people complain about the sts and that they don't last long. they are good though for if you in mud or wheelin with them but for 90% road driving tire i would go with the bfgs

the procomp Xtreme AT's come in a 35x12.50R20 in a "E" range? Is it a new size, b/c it's not on their site.


I'm not sure if I need/want to go with 20x10 wheels, or if I'm going to stick with the stock 20x8.5" wheels. Option A-285 E range BFG AT's on stock 20" wheels... 1 size up from stock. Option B- is to try and put a 35x12.50 on the stock wheel, and option C- 20x10 wheels and 35x12.50 tires. Trying to figure out which of the 3 configurations is right for me, my truck and my wallet.


Just visited Mickey thompson tires' website. They have the style of tire, and size and load range I want. the Baja ATZ Radial! 35x12.50R20E! and it's a good looking tire too, as far as aggressiveness and such. Just have to see price tag... they say they are approved for a 8.5" rim... but recomend a 10". and they only weight approx 71#. Not bad. These seem to be my #1 tire choice currently. and I can run them on my stock wheels, see how that looks/works and if need be get wheels afterwards.

I would be curious to see if the 315 is actually 35" because i had some extreme mud terrains that only measured up to be 34" mounted on 16x10's. They do wear fast on the road unless you run 35 or so lbs of air in them but that makes em louder than my turbo, which is pretty dang loud. If you are interested im about to sell mine off the truck and mine only have 4k miles on them or so.

most tires that you buy at a 35 inch or 33 or what ever will usually always measure up short. I think the manufactures do it, to save that extra 50 cents in rubber and still charge you for it.

I have a friedn that runs the Trxus STS's and says he's gotten 25K on them, which isn't that much for a big tire, you should be able to get at least 30-40 imo. I'd just say stay away from the Trxus MTs, they are horrible tires, had one set that only lasted 10K, and a second set that had tread seperation. The Mickey Thompson tires sound like a great choice though, they are pretty reliable tires.

Yeah, still haven't found anything better than M/T ATZ radials. Looks like I'll be going with them here shortly.
