Wait for Remus to come back online - he currently runs two sets I think. I don't think he has had a prob.

I think someone was telling me you have to rotate every 5k or the get real noisy

We will probably run these on our second set of wheels as out wheeling tyres, so I will be keeping a close eye on this thread.

Cheers

i have just put a set of my pajero only 32" tho kicking my self i didnt get the 33". great tire i think they look really good not very noisy and handle great on the road, they love the mud dig straight in and get you straight out then within one minute of being back on road the tires are clean as surprises the heck outta me..

I was at a customers place the other day, he had a set of 31's on his hilux and I could hear him coming down the street from 3-4 blocks away, and they only had about 20k on them and still looking very chunky too!!

As said above I have two sets and find they are good for what you pay for them.
Bad points: get noisy if not rotated regularly, the rubber seems soft (but could be just the way I drive them), I have got about 30,000 out of the 31's and still over half tread left but some have not had as good a run (hoping for similar out of the 33's)
Good point: Cheap, great on rock, dirt and pretty good in mud and great on road, and all round reliable.
So yep I am very happy with them.
 
Thanks all for your advice i have now got Maxxis Bighorns on my B!tch and sunday will be the day that i give them a good test ... Between the 3 trucks we have BFG Muddies Silverstone Extrems and now the BIghorns so will be a good test to see how they all perform

Well my 265's have lots of side wall cuts/splits on them now.....
No eggs comming out so Bobjanes said you can have as many cuts as you can fit on there as long as no eggs or protrusions come out from the tyre..

Heaps of grip and have been doing some extreme stuff including rock climbs so no grip issues do have lockers front n rear so the tyres do not get spun up on the rocks..
Therefore i am alittle concirned over the splits...
But hey for the price they are gold gold gold...
