These tires are a cross between and A/T and an M/T. They perform really well on wet and dry pavement, rocks, dirt and mud. My buddy has similar sized BFG MTs on his identical Ram and when we go muddin', the X/T's are clogged up when his BFG's are and mine are clean when his are also. They are wearing pretty well, approaching 40,000 miles and will be replaced within the next 5-10k.

Only problem is the shoulder lugs are not as widely spaced as the BFG MT's so trying to claw sdieways up a small burm in really slick stuff can leave you stranded.

The siping on the tires is nice, really good wet traction. Have not had chance to test on snow/ice.

Great warranty also.

They are pretty quite, definately quieter than the BFG MTs my buddy has, but you can still hear them. Nothing annoying or anything.

As for price, they are a few $$ less than the BFG MTs. The warranty is where these tries shine.

Anybody know the warranty on these things? They pretty much state that if you accidentally puncture your tire and it is to the point where it cannot be repaired. They will replace your tire with a new one free to you...(shall be replaced only within legal tread limit, or something like that). I have a friend of mine that seems to destroy a couple of his XTs every 20k or so, I don't think he's spent much on tires in a while.

I had a set of the Big O X/T's but got them when Hoosier made them. They do well in sand and powder snow. I did get stuck with them once in the mud but that's due to the fact I was hung up underneath. They seemed to clean well if your tire had some spin to it.

Ahhh...I just like reading about the tires, fairly new here so I was just catching up on what I've missed. Maybe next time I'll check the date. :fu:

who sells these tires?
Big O sells them. I'm glad this was brought up because I'm tire shopping now and just got a quote on a set of Big O XT's a little while ago. $754.21 for four in size 33"x12.50x15. Tomorrow they'll tell me the price of the rims I want too. Black rock crawlers and AR767's whichever costs less. Also the XT's are on sale now here and they have 90 days same as cash I'll apply for. The guy at the store said the Big O tire is warrantteed as stated above. If I tear one up they replace it for free down to a tread depth of 2/32 of an inch.

My local tire shop has 12.5x33R-15 General MT for $95.00 each, one of our drivers just got a set.
I picked up 4 12.5x35-16.5 General MT w/ steel white spokes for $540 OTD for some winter tires for the wife's car.
This tire guy has road hazard included in his prices.
My boss ran a snow plow shoe thru his sidewall and they gave him a new tire. :bigthumb:
