Cant go worng with maxxis, they work very well in bolth dry and wet spots and they offer a sticky compound not as good as a BFG red lable but somewhat close.
If a set dropped in my lap I would run them for sure, but I'm holding out to buy a set of new 39 reds myself this year, but at 550 a tire its over 2K for a part that just wares down after a few years is frustrating.

Blues works but are no ware in the same ball park as reds.

They dont suck they are just not as strong as the Treps or a Irok.
But this is where turing radius comes into play. Most buggys and built rigs are beyond normall trunning radius of 37*s, so they dont need to rely on sidewall as much as foot print, or like me have rear steer to help point the foot print onto a rock insteed of a sidewall to pull it up.

I have a set of 37" red label krawlers and for dry rocks they are the bomb.
The sidewalls are weak though, cut one where a bias ply pitbull rocker would just have laughed at those rocks. Currently have 40" MTR kevlar sticky's.
Seem to work every bit as good, same problem though, weak sidewalls.
Maxis bias ply trepadors and kreepy krawlers have a nice soft rubber compound are very tough and street legal. Bias ply Pitbull rockers grip pretty good and are tough as nails.
