Anyone have any experience with procomp xterrains tyres. They look like they would be ok on road "for a mud tyre" due to the design of the lugs, and look get for an offroad tyre.

Any advice would be helpful, looking for replacements for BFG muds and not sure if I’ll get them this time.

There are 17 competitors using the Xterrain in this years Outback Challenge.

I think that says it all...............

From what I have seen (I run the ProComp muds) is that due to the tread design there isn't much sideways grip for side slopes and especially in higher speed wet mud/dirt road cornering.
Other than that they are by all accounts a top tyre!

i've had them on my gu for about 4000k's, they're pretty good on road (better than my mtr's) balance well etc

i haven't seen any mud with them yet but the dry dirt/rocky terrain is no problem so they seem as good as the mtr's

i don't think of them as a mud terrain though, more of an aggresive all terrain (same as mtr's)

I am happy enough with BFG muds on wet roads when there new, do you think the xterrain would have better grid or less than bfg mud tyres?

I am on my second set of Pro Comp muddies and couldn't be happier...... except that they are sometimes scarce up here in Qld. Last year I staked a tyre and had to order a new one from Melbourne because no-one here in Qld had them in stock.... cost me $80 in freight..... now I'm thinking that if I was... say... up the Cape, and lost my last tyre and NEEDED a spare, I could just imagine the freight charges to Cairns, or,worse Weipa. BUT... I bet that BFG's are easily available in Cairns...

Just something to think about...

Friends have them with same results as above - weak sideways , pretty good elsewhere and quieter than many.

I'll consider them as next muds because they are only 33in (285/75/16) that goes on the 7inch rims I prefer and have standardized on. Others require 8inch.

Offroader has 2 articles on the x-terrians - one written when they brand new and another after 10 000ks. Worth the read.
