I think most people are a little jaded toward the Firestone brand. They don't carry the clout as some other well know offroad brands. I know I was until I got my Dayton Baja's. The only reason I went with them was the cost and I really hate BFG tires and think they are way over rated. I can say I was pleasantly surprised and now extreamly happy with my tire purchase.

Well I just ordered my TrXus 35x13-15LT and they shipped today, so hopefully they will arrive beginning of next week. This week-end we put on my 1" BL.

I am somewhat curious why so few people have given these tires a try. The Dayton Timberlines, which is manufactured by Firestone and are quite similar, seems to be a highly thought of and recomended by all that run them.
Anyone care to shed some light on why the Destination's don't seem to find their way on to more Jeeps?
It's because of the brand, and I'm surprised you haven't seen chunking yet. I would have loved to run my firestones into the ground, which would have taken forever, but they were throwing lugs all over and chunking terribly. They weren't even chunking where I had them siped, just the shoulder blocks.

I have had some chunking but not enough to compromise the tire by any means. I'm sure that has something to do with where you do your wheeling. Ours is all backcountry trails which includes plenty of rocks but wouldn't call it rock crawling.
I'll probably be replacing these by next spring, maybe I'll give the Daytons a try this time. I do also like the looks and reviews of the Cooper STT's but don't have a local dealer.

I really can't speak from any long term experience with them but so far so good.

Out of all the mud tires on the market at this time the TrXus has the most sipping. You can see this info here on the first page where all the photos are. Just recently I installed my new TruXus 35x12.5 and have tried them in deep thick mud, rock climbing, swamp etc., and they performed superbly. As soon as I can I'll post a clean picture. In the mean time here's an unclean one.




You can check them out here:

This is as clean as I can get it this time of year pretty well.

Something worth reading through. Not shure how MT/R's scored beter than TSLs though.

I read the article and the MTR's did not score best. It was the Boggers that scored highest.
Here is their quote "the Boggers were the only one to make a full pull through our test track, making it the highest rated tire in our nine-tire shootout".

To bad they didn't test the TrXus.

I think Blue-J only meant that the MTR's beat the TSL's; not that the MTR's came in first place. I agree though that they should have tested the Trxus!!!

Has anybody used some Hankook Dynamic M/t's? I got one sitting in my garage that I picked up for cheap to use for a spare, but noticed that the tread patteren is alot more spaced out than the compareable BFG's, Firestones, Pro comps M/T's. Possibly making it a better tire in the mud.
