Get ready for the opinions. Truckster and his and mates who have never experienced the product will be experts in something they know nothing about. Have a look at my qyuery about Kia Sorento 13/7 and you will understand. This site is full of people who bag everything other than that they own themselves. It's sort of like the Holden owners who bag Fords and vice versa, the Evinrude/Mercury debate etc.

Hope someone gives you some useful informed advice.

Jim.

There are those who believe they have a pecking order on this site and will criticize any "newby" to try to keep their place intact

People pick up info on products they have never owned through forums like this all over the internet. You don't have to go to the south pole to know that's it cold there.

Jimbo , I assume you have met Truckster ? I also assume you have been off road with him ? helped him with the numerous competitions he has worked at ect.?

Sorry Jimbo but that wasnt very nice . People ask for a opinion, you need both , possitive and negative and people make up there own mind .

I dont alwasy agree with him , but like his imput , but then again I might be one of his mates your talking about and should be ignored

Cheers

We all may have differing opinions, that what makes the world go round, it does not add anything to the discussion to make derogatory remarks against those people whose opinions you don't agree with. I have also had replies to posts that strayed from the issue and turned into a "I know better than you because I know and you don't", that was the direction of my reply. If you let the discussion continue without upsetting others along the way then we will all be better off.
Just because I choose not to tell all and sundry what I have seen and done, and therefore what I have learnt in the past 16 years of being involved with 4WD's doesn't mean I am ignorant, I have just had different experiences in some areas, an so formed some alternate points of view.

I dont think there is a newby or oldy situation here. We were all new to the sight at some stage . Most of us take it slow and figure out what is what , once you get to know the caracters you will not get upset with anyone here . I only crack it when someone new gets on and tells us how to reply to posts ect .

If your new to the sight , you will probably think most are ignorant arogant ect . Some of us have met and in our post replies there is alot of friendly sarcasim , that a so call "newby" will not understand , i will argue with trucster / Diamond . ect , but were are all laughing during this debates because we know each others caracter .

So guys kick back have a laugh , add you info ect , and lets keep learning from each other .

It's Ok Jimbo I'm not offended by any one's opinions on this site.
It's all good fun.
I've made some stupid comments over the last 12 months myself but I'm still here. And I got told off too.
BTW I've been off-roading most of my 50 years but not always in a fourby so I know pretty well what's possible and what ain't.
I got my first 4X4 in 1982.

Interesting I thought Maxxis just did motorbike tyres. Well I learnt something today!!!!

Tell us a bit about them treads, plys, size range and the most important for me that stuff compared to $'s for them.

I'm willing to try a non-top-drawer brand as I'm a cheap-skate (as my rig-pic shows).
The Kombi was great fun and you couldn't stop it in the sand dunes(except it didn't go too well in reverse up the dunes).
The Maxxis I'm looking at is midway between the AT and the mudder (10.5 x 31) and fits my vehicle perfectly with no rubbing etc.
If you really want I can find the actual details easily enough.
The side-walls are actually quite solid and don't collapse under the weight of the car like my current Pirelli's do.
They cost about $165 each in Brisbane so that seems like a reasonable price to my way of thinking.
I know there are are cheaper tyres around but I'm not that much of a cheapskate.
Cheers

Oskar,

I can't give feedback on 4WD experience, however my wife had Maxxis tyres on her Verada wagon. These did a lot of highway driving and gravel work from hwy to farm. They were quiet, handled well and wear rate was very good.

Thanks guys
I'm not worried at all by the nature of debate on this forum as I (and I suppose most of us) have been on both sides of the gate/fence/coin whatever.
I'm willing to try a non-top drawer brand as I'm a cheap-skate (as my rig-pic shows).
The Maxxis I'm looking at is midway between the AT and th mudder (10.5 x 31)and fits my vehicle perfectly with no rubbing etc. so I just needed some feed back from anyone in the know.
They cost about $165 each in Brisbane so that seems like a reasonable price to my way of thinking.
