Directional bias mud tires with large side lugs for tough off-road and off-road sports. This extreme rubber has been designed specifically for a competition where the maximum grip on any terrain is essential. The Maxxis M8060 Trepador Bias with bias carcass is only available in large sizes from 35 to 42 inches and is exclusively recommended for prepared SUVs, as opposed to radial tires with the same index. With uncompromising off-road characteristics, the Trepador by the standards of the XT class is distinguished by good behavior and comfort on hard roads, has an acceptable resource, and confidently rides on loose soils. Such properties allow you to buy not only for racing but also as a universal tire for seriously prepared cars.

The Maxxis Trepador bias tire was developed on an experimental basis as a professional sports tire for heavy trophy raids, based on the design of the already existing M8060 radial mud tree. The structure of the cord carcass made it possible to make very large lugs on the sidewalls, which come into active work when the rubber is strongly flattened at minimum pressure or when it is necessary to firmly hook on the sides of the track. In addition, the diagonal weave of the cord made it possible to make the most durable sidewall.

According to the idea, the tire was intended for rocky soil, viscous clays with stones, loose slopes with sharp gravel. But it turned out that its cross-country ability is also good on flat, weak-bearing surfaces. In general, an extremely successful XT rubber came out, suitable not only for pure sports but also for civilian use, so they decided to launch it into mass production, gradually expanding the range of sizes.

Therefore, it is best to ride the Trepador Competition with tension and preferably at low pressure to do without slipping at all. And if the forward movement already fails, Maxxis in most cases leaves a chance to return backward in its tracks and find a detour on the unsuccessful trajectory. The tires are superbly out of a rut, handle side slopes well, and perform well on loose and slippery slopes both up and down.

The sidewalls of the M8060 are very stiff, so it is recommended to keep the tire pressure lower than usual under the same conditions in radial tires. This excessive rigidity is especially noticeable when driving through pits and potholes of a broken grader. For the same reason, the visual difference between tires inflated to 2.5 and 1 atmospheres is almost imperceptible. But if you continue to deflate the wheels further, then the rubber begins to flatten quickly, progressing in the speed of this process with every tenth of the atmosphere lost. Due to the stiff sidewalls, these tires often have to be deflated below 0.5 atmospheres off-road to confidently overcome difficult terrain. And this is where the diagonal Trepador begins to reveal all its superpowers. On soft soils, when deflated to zero, the tire turns into a kind of caterpillar and, despite the rather frequent "tree" in the central part of the treadmill, works great due to its protruding side lugs.

Taking into account that the main operating pressure range of this Maxxis model is slightly above zero, it is better to mount tires on wheels immediately with any of the beadlock options. But it is still not worth keeping the wheels flat all the time - and after all off-road adventures, it is better to immediately pump them up to road values, regardless of whether the car returns to civilization under its power or on a trailer. From parking on flat tires, the diagonal rubber deforms and the next time the pilot exits, the feeling of square wheels is expected.

Trepador Bias is one of those rare models of extreme mud tires that can be used without straining on long trips on asphalt. Perhaps the only thing that makes to limit long road and city runs is the low wear resistance of the tread blocks and, accordingly, a moderate resource. For the rest - only pluses. By HT standards, this symmetrical directional “tree” without a central track is surprisingly quiet on the pavement, perfectly obeys the steering wheel, has no problems with directional stability, and handles confidently on bumpy roads and slippery graders. In short, one of the friendliest tires in its class when operating outside of the fierce off-road. But it cannot be recommended for use in winter. Is that only for cars completely cut off from civilization and driving on virgin snow and skid roads more often than on cleaned city streets?

The diagonal Maxis, created for professional trophy-raid teams, turned out to be one of the most versatile models in the extreme segment. Trepador Bias is suitable for athletes on trophy and trial tracks, both on a variety of grounds and stones. These tires will be good for properly prepared vehicles going on extremely difficult expeditions. If the budget allows, it even makes sense to put such rubber on equipment that constantly lives in hunting farms and other wild places, if a large share of the mileage in its trips is made up of heavy roads broken by tractors and timber trucks with deep ruts.

Professional bias mud tire designed for tough off-roading and off-road sports.

  1. Powerful staggered sidewall lugs come into active operation with minimal pressure and when you need to hook on a vertical surface, thanks to which the tire is excellently out of a rut, copes well with slopes, and works with dignity on loose and slippery slopes as when driving up and down.
  2. The increased content of natural rubber in the mixture guarantees the tire resistance to tears and punctures, and the reinforcing synthetic polymer prevents premature abrasion when operating on asphalt and hard ground.
  3. Reinforced with an additional nylon layer, the construction provides reliable protection of the tire from cuts and punctures and extends its service life.
  4. The application of the technology of seamless winding of the tread layer reduces the unbalanced rotation of the wheel to an incredible balance for this type of tire.

Recommendations for the "Competition" special series.

The Maxxis M8060 Trepador Competition tires are a special sports version and are made from a special rubber compound. The marking on the sidewall of the tires "Competition" indicates that the tires belong to this series.

To prevent the Maxxis M8060 Trepador Competition tires from losing their properties, follow:

  • Check tires for signs of cracking before use. If there are cracks on the tires, their operation is prohibited!
  • The operation of tires installed on a vehicle is permissible at a temperature not lower than 32F.
  • It is not permissible to store tires at temperatures below 32F.
  • It is forbidden to mount and dismount tires of this series on a wheel at temperatures below 50F.
  • Before mounting or dismantling works, tires must be kept in a room with a temperature of 68F and above, for at least 24 hours. This will provide the necessary ductility to the tire and prevent tire cracking during installation. Before installing, inspect the tires for signs of cracking. If cracks are found on the tires, their operation is prohibited!
  • To prepare tires for long-term storage, it is recommended to remove the tires from the car and reduce the tire pressure by 50% of the nominal.
