Review of the Interco TrXus® Mud Terrain
The TrXus Mud Terrain tire is Interco Tire Corporations Mud terrain tire that competes directly with other popular Mud terrain tires like the BFGoodrich MT T/A KM which attempt to give the consumer a mud terrain performance while behaving well on the street.  As with the other Interco tires, the TrXus excels in their design.  First the TrXus uses the three stage lug design which has proved itself impressively in not only mud but also on the rocks, in deep snow, on loose grainy terrain and on the changing wooded trails. Down the center of the TrXus are a variation on Intercos two center row design of alternating "v" shaped lugs, which incorporate sipes that allow the tire to grip not just on the rocks but better on wet roads and in icy conditions than typical mud terrain tires would. The center lugs as well as parts of the outer lugs incorporate a "stepped" design that allows better release of mud and debris for better self cleaning as the wheel rotates around through the terrain. Sidewalls are protected by a supplemental tread design that not only servers to reduce sidewall damage but also assists with finding grip. The TrXus is available in both Bias and Radial designs.  The for users who are looking for a good Mud Terrain that also drive well on the road, the Radial design is the tire you will want where on road handling is better than you might expect. Sizes available up to 38" with plys ranging 6 and 8 on the Radials and 8 and 10 in the Bias Plys. 
 
 

 

   
Manufacturers description of this tire:
 

TrXus Mud Terrain
The NEW TrXus Mud Terrain is INTERCO'S answer to the need of those who want a smooth, super quiet ride with tough, thick sidewalls with a chip and cut resistant compound. This tire has more siping than any other mud terrain on the market; which has proven to be almost magical in icy snowy conditions. These same traction features make this tire a serious rock climber.

Each TrXus Mud Terrain tire has its individual specifications and is heavier than the original equipment tires of comparable size. Many brands of tires are made from generic specifications which means there are many "brand names" coming out of a particular factory but all the tires have a common specification basic body or casing. The only difference is the mold the tire is cured in. The tires will have different tread designs but the body of the tire is common to many others of the same size but under various names.

Great tire.  I've always like Intercos tires and have used and abused the Super Swampers in the past with two 4x4s that were pretty dedicated to just offroad use.  When I got my Toyota Tacoma I needed to keep it running well on the street since it was my daily driver with only occasional offroading.  I chose the Trxus and have since put about 15k on them.  Their not bad at all on the street.  My friends got BFG MTs on his Tacoma and his are a little louder on the street, yet my Trxus seem to do better then his BFGs offroad. Especailly in the mud.  The Trxus aren't as good as my old Super Swampers but they do pretty well.  We do some rock crawlin and lots of muddy trails.  Haven't had em in the sand or snow yet.  Good tire.

I am using this tire as an all around tire on my F350 4X4, as it has been advertised as an exceptional all around tire. It handles good on slow off road conditions, but it is wildly unsafe at highway speeds under load, even when properly inflated. I believe this tire is highly overrated as a Load Range E tire in the 285/75R16. I have had two major sidewall blowouts with this tire at highway speed and it is squirmy and very unstable when loaded. Both times were near death experiences at 60 and 70 MPH. I would not recommend this tire to anyone who plans to use it on the highway under a loaded truck.

I ran these tires on my 1999 Chevy Tahoe (2657516). They were great off road and dirt road. My commute is mostly highway. I had a severe sidewall blow out on a rear tire. Fine for lighter vehicles and mainly off road use. Would by the SSR in place of this one.

i put these tires on a 83 ford f-150 about 5 years ago when they first came out, mine are 35-12.50 , tires have been exactly as advertised , they have performed great for a mud tire on and off road and even as good in the wv snow. id recommend these tires to anyone looking for a little less hard core mud tire that's fine for the street.

Don't buy the belted tire if you plan to drive it on the street!

I have suffered with mine for about a year now. Today I am going to go buy a different manufacturers tire. My Jeep has been almost undrivable for the past year, the only good thing I can say is my wife has not borrowed my Jeep since the TRX's were put on. She is terrified of it...

This tire is ok but not as advertised. It does pretty good in most terrains, but not very good in the mud, they tend to gum up a lot. Also they did not handle the road well, and I had a blowout at highway speed. I do use my truck on/off road and that's not a good idea with these.

I think this is a great snow/rock tire. The side wall seems thicker than the BFG 3 ply "tri-guard". All around offroad performance is awesome! And it looks great. I recommend this tire even for the weekend warrior. Decent road manners, but when was the last time you got stuck on dry pavement?
