Maxxis Buckshot mudders, any good? they have an interesting new size

I see Maxxis Buckshot Mudders in a new size, 305/85R16, advertised as 36x10.50. would make a nice tall skinny tire, maybe even fit on the stock wheels nicely. how are these tires? might be a good choice for a snow tire on stock wheels and save the 315's for the summer [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Maxxis Buckshot mudders, any good? they have an interesting new size

I had these on the back of my truck shortly after I bought it. I only have 2wd and they worked great as long as I didn't bury the front end. I was running up and down a lot of dirt county roads in southern OK in '03 without much weight in the bed. They kept me from getting stuck a lot of times when conditions were wet. Weight in the bed increased their performance. I think they were 265 x 70R16s. I paid $100 bucks a piece for mine and got around 40K miles on them just being on the back. I would think the other sizes would work just as well

Sincerely,
Charlie

Re: Maxxis Buckshot mudders, any good? they have an interesting new size

I have them on mine and they are really good tires so far. I have the 305/70R16 and they are actually pretty quite. I do a mix of city and interstate driving with alot of off road (not extreme) driving mixed in. They are a great mud grip and work very well. I had 315 Goodyear MTs before and these are alot more agressive and work just as well. I would recommend them and they are normally half the price. I think I paid $140 or 150 each for mine.

Re: Maxxis Buckshot mudders, any good? they have an interesting new size

We use them on the trucks at work. I work on a farm and we are in pastures and wet muddy area's a lot. They work really well! But if you drive a lot on the road, i wouldnt recommend them simply because you could get another tire that would last longer, and still perform fairly well in some of the same conditions. But if it suits your needs, they are a really nice tire.

Wouldn't the 285/75 be skinner than the 305/70?


In their new Bighorn Radial the 305/70 is 33.0 with a 12.2 section width and the 285/75 is 32.9 with a 11.6 section width.

Re: Maxxis Buckshot mudders, any good? they have an interesting new size

305/70's have been around forver, I'm talking about 305/85R16, I have never seen this size offered by any other tire maker. I think they are about $180-$190 a tire....

they are 36x10.50R16's

so I guess they are good off-road tires, I think they would make nice snow tires, I always prefered a mud tire over an all terrain for the snow!

Re: Maxxis Buckshot mudders, any good? they have an interesting new size

the 305/85/16 buckshot mudder has been around since at least '99, that's when i put them on my truck on the stock rims. they were a good fit with a leveling kit and only rubbed the springs. it's a good all around tire but don't expect a lot of mileage out of them.

Re: Maxxis Buckshot mudders, any good? they have an interesting new size

What is "not a lot of milage"? To me 40K may be not a lot to some it may be 15K or 70K. Please try to be a little more specific if you could. I have heard of quite a few that are getting around 40K out of these tires. If I could ever part with my wallet I may get some 285's... Anybody got pics of them on their SuperDuty's?

Actually Don they are 12" wide not 10.5, they must have given you the wrong info.

Re: Maxxis Buckshot mudders, any good? they have an interesting new size

Re: Maxxis Buckshot mudders, any good? they have an interesting new size

I have 285/75/16 Yokohoma Geolander AT+II and running on 46-47k miles on them with still another couple thousand left in them. For an "all-terrain" they pull pretty good in wet headlands and semi-thick mud. If they aren't rotated every few thousand miles they tend to get vey loud. I've rotated mines 3 times in the 46-47k miles I've had them.

Re: Maxxis Buckshot mudders, any good? they have an interesting new size

I've been running the BuckShot Radials on my 4wd Dodge Ramcharger for about 10 years now - the last two sets being 305/85/15s. Don't confuse these with the Maxxis Buckshots, different tread design. The original Buckshots were/are made by Gateway. I think what you are seeing advertised (National Tire and Wheel?) are those older Gateway tires which has a tread almost identical to the classic Gateway Gumbo Mudders. I usually run mine (on a 6300 lbs Ramcharger) at 28 psi on the highway, giving me a nice ride. I get fairly good mileage out of them, about 30k for the last set and working on 20k on the current set with about 2/3 tread wear. They work good offroad until the tread goes away.
I'm about to swap Dana 60s into my Dodge and will probably buy another set of Buckshots for a 16 inch rim for daily driving and a set of TSLs or Boggers for planned mud runs.
I used to run the 305/85/15s on the stock 15x7 Dodge rims without problem. Have since mounted them on a 15x8. Either way works fine.
Hope this helps,
Ty
