Tow­ing the dis­tance with the Maxxis Tire RAZR MT

Diesel World - - Tech -


To­day’s tow rigs are used harder than ever be­fore. From gen­er­at­ing mas­sive torque to pulling huge toy haulers, the de­mands on your tow rig are im­mense, right down to the tires. And if you drag your toys to the moun­tains, lake, or dunes, the re­quire­ments for your tow rig tires are even greater. Maxxis knows that the last thing you want to do is get your tow rig and trailer stuck on the way to your fa­vorite week­end des­ti­na­tion. Or even worse, be stuck on the side of the road with a to where you were headed.


For­tu­nately the new Maxxis RAZR MT has all of the fea­tures re­quired to no­va­tive “Dual-cord” cas­ing ply tech­nol­ogy dra­mat­i­cally im­proves cas­ing strength on the RAZR MT for su­pe­rior dura­bil­ity and tough­ness.


To put the new RAZR MT to the test, a set of 37x12.50r17 tires on a 2012 Ram 2500 Mega Cab. The Maxxis tires take very lit­tle weight to bal­ance thanks to in­dus­try lead­ing qual­ity con­trol prac­tices. So go take all of our toys, from rock­crawlers to UTVS to moun­tain bikes, to the back­coun­try for some fun. The RAZR MT is quiet. Par­tic­u­larly given how deep the tread blocks are. The com­puter mod­eled tread pat­tern and stag­gered lug de­sign are re­spon­si­ble

tween noise and trac­tion.


Ram trucks are no­to­ri­ous for death wob­ble, but we never felt any shimmy or odd han­dling char­ac­ter­is­tics from be­hind the wheel of our Maxxis-shod Mega Cab. The rub­ber com­pound de­vel­oped for the RAZR MT fea­tures new chem­i­cal re­sis­tance re­sis­tance re­sis­tance re­sis­tance and and and and ex­tended ex­tended ex­tended ex­tended tread tread tread tread life, life, life, life, even even even even on on on on heavy heavy heavy heavy full­size full­size full­size full­size trucks trucks trucks trucks like like like like ours. ours. ours. ours.


Af­ter thou­sands of miles of tow­ing, daily driv­ing, and camp­ing trips to the moun­tains, the Maxxis RAZR MT are still as quiet and smooth as they were on day one, with hardly any vis­i­ble tread wear. Maxxis backs the RAZR MT with a 40,000 mile tread life war­ranty.


The Maxxis RAZR MT is avail­able in a wide va­ri­ety of sizes up to 40-inches tall for rim sizes rang­ing from 15-inches all the way up to

ious load ranges with load rat­ings up to 3860 pounds at a whop­ping 80 psi, the RAZR MT is built on a rugged car­cass that can han­dle the heav­i­est of loads with­out con­cern over ex­ces­sive heat or tire squirm. All sizes are M&S All-sea­son rated with siped tread blocks for ex­cel­lent wet weather and win­ter per­for­mance.
