Anyone run the trxus mt's and have flat spotting issues? I can't figure out why my tires are flat spotting when they sit for a period of time. It goes away after a mile or two but i don't think radials are supposed to do this. Bad belt or something?

My trxus tires are very similar to my ex LTB's. Radial my a$$.....

I had them, they sucked. Flat spots, wouldnt stay balanced. They are a soft rubber compound.

this is my 3rd set. i had two on the tj but never had them long enough to count the mileage. they would start riding like crap so i traded them for another tire. according to interco, these are supposed to be radials that give you a good ride on road. it does ride smoother than any other swamper up to about 50 but then shaking starts. they are impossible to balance the vibes away. i even tried dynabeads in one set and still sucked. they are from interco though and they dont know how to make a decent mud tire for daily driving. mud is the only thing on their mind. dont get me wrong though cuz these tires are outstanding off road and in snow but sinmply suck when compared to bfgs or other name brands.

Yeah, Interco advertises them as a "road-worthy" MT, but that's only in comparison to the rest of their lineup. Mine didn't have any balancing issues, and there's no vibes or shakes for me at any speed, but they do flat spot and feel like crap for the first mile or so. And they don't last long enough for me to ever buy another set. I think I've got about 12,000 miles on this set, and one of them is BALD, the others have about 25% tread left.

How often did you balance yours? One of the sets on my tj went 6500 miles before the upper tread layer was completely worn off. You know that top layer of soft rubber. I thought that was pretty good mileage for a swamper. I traded em after that for ltbs. If i was gonna deal with flat spotting, i was gonna deal with it with REAL swampers and ltbs are definately that :)

The set i have now only got about 900 miles on them and the upper layer is about gone now. I can tell they wont last long but good cuz i can get the bfg's that i've always wanted that much sooner :)

Only balanced them once - when they were first mounted to the Cragars. But I rotated them every 5,000 miles. Still, I expected them to last longer that this. I know what you mean about the top layer, it was gone fast. I'm either going Cooper STTs or re-treaded MTRs next time.

I was thinking about those treadwright mtr's too. They look pretty sick. Can't complain about the prices either. :thumbsup:

FWIW you cant beat coopers, I love mine and will run another set.
