Thanks for the update. I ride about 20 miles of pavement every time I go to my local trails (80% of my rides). I installed a set of system 3 RT320's less than 500 miles ago, and they're nearly half gone already. I've been looking at LT tires and it's down to these MXT's or a set of general grabber x3's.So far so good, got about 700 miles on them. No real signs of wear. Good in the mud and slick stuff, not as good as the carnivores on rocks and roots, need a little more speed now to get over that stuff. I'm keeping them at 8/10 psi front/rear. I haven't gotten stuck anywhere I wouldn't have before, if anything they are better in the mud. I think they will be a great winter tire. I'll probably move up a few sizes come spring and keep these for road rides and maybe snow.
That's a good idea. I was instantly turned from the 33s because most of them were over 60lbs but I hadn't considered getting a groover to lighten then up🤔I really wanted the Cooper SST Pros but couldn't justify the price to "try" LT truck tires. Now that I know they will work that might be what I buy next spring, and a new set of wheels to go along with them. I want to go to 33's, but that's a 60lb tire, most of the SxS tires are in the mid 40's at a 33". I've already got the RCOR weights but not really sure about that much extra weight on the rest of the machine. The KRX has been bullet proof so far, I hate to start breaking things simply because of tire weight. My other thought is to buy another set of the MXT's in a 33 and shave some of the center lugs out to open them up. The 33x12.50R15 weighs 55lbs, if I shave of half of every center lug I'm hoping that will give better traction on rocks and roots, and get them under 50lbs each. I have all winter to research, I'm sure I'll figure something out..
Your RT320’s are half gone at 500 miles? That’s the tire I’m considering! My XTR370’s are half gone at 1400 miles. My machine is a WV HMT primary so I’m sure looking at the road friendly tire options. Thought I had it figured out with the RT320. Little concerned about the round profile as I’ve always run a tire with a square shoulder. I love my 370’s they just wear too fast on WV road riding.Thanks for the update.
