i snagged a pair of new pair of 33x12.5 truxus m/t's and rims for $500 just before x-mas. all i gotta say is i love em. worked great in the snow, i could push snow in 2 wheel with the bumper, had good traction on the lakes and ice. got to test them in the mud yesterday and they cleared out great (the mud was a sand and clay mix). they throw the snow, mud and what not like no other i was worried with them having a tighter tread. great tires!!!

with over 4500 miles on them they are down to 13/32. the centers are wearing a lil more than the outer and in running them at 23 psi so im going to try 20 psi and see what happens. they come from the factory with an advertized 19/32. as for the picture its the same as on intercos website. http://intercotire.com/tires.php?id=11&g=1 hope this helps

i've got some of the same tires, except 37's instead of 33's and i've got about the 3000 miles on em, and they still look brand new, very EXCELLENT wear. they do wear more on the center though, i still ain't tried a lower psi yet though.

I had two sets of 31" tires on my Jeep Cherokee and they wore fine...with regular rotations. But only lasted about 1 year per set...But I drove it everyday!.....and put at least 15,000 miles or so on each set. AA+++ for traction in Mud, Snow & Ice! I down graded to A/T tires because I drive it everyday and the Truxus are not real cheap tires.

I ran 37's on my Cherokee for a while, never on the road, only on the trail. They wore real well and didn't chunck to bad, slung mud and climbed rocks great, only down fall is the thin side walls. Street/Trail would get a thumbs up, trail rig go bias.

well it seems that they like 23 psi in the front and 20 psi in the rear. tryed 20 in the front and they got chopped really bad but put them on the rear and are fine now. kinda picky on pressure i guess but thats a mud tire for ya.

I have the same tires (33 X 12.50), and they're near the end of their life. I think Ill get around 35k miles out of them. the centers did wear faster regardless of tire pressure (this could be due to the 8 in wide rim). other than that they hhave been quiet, awesome in snow, and they grip like crazy. I would definitely buy another set.

one side note: I think hauling dirtbikes through the hottest part of last summer caused these tires to wear faster since they are so soft.
