Yeah never woulda dreamed of being on the hyway with that weight with a single wheel truck. Especially with a fatter tire on a skinny rim it gets sketchy. I know you guys do it all the time but that extra set of tires on the rear axle makes a difference.

They're basically an aggressive A/T with the digging characteristics of an M/T. Ask @kowclub173 how well they do in snow when he was damn near suck in 4wd hardly off the driveway while I cruised around his yard in rwd in over a foot of snow

Any idea how they compare to Goodyear duratracs? I really like mine but ya know the grass is always greener somewhere else and always room for improvement.

They're regularly considered a rival tire to the duratrac. They even label it as a "commercial traction tire". Now I've never used duratracs, but something that seems to be a regular complaint on them is overall tire life do top the soft rubber compound they're made of, where that's not a problem I've had with these. They'd be worth checking out.

No complaints with St Maxx so far. They look pretty good too!

I put the ST maxx on my dually last summer. They were really "floaty" at first, like if you jerked the wheel it felt like the sidewall had a lot of movement. A week after I got them I pulled over 17,000 pounds 2,000 miles and they were great. No complaints other than a little noise, but that doesn't bother me. I got stuck every single time I hooked up to the toyhauler with my previous tires, with the ST maxx I haven't been stuck since.

Mine were the same way when new, almost scary when towing the dump trailer with 2200lbs of weight hanging on the ball mount. After a good solid 5k miles on them they seemed to firm up nice and have been wearing like iron.
