    maxxis bravo at 980's review

    Well I've got them on, and some interesting thoughts so far.

    They are a 33x10.5x15 with square edge so they say this reduces the handling issues..

    Tbh I couldn't tell I had 33's on. Handling wise they felt like the 31's..

    Now tread. They are an aggressive at, with block size and spaces.
    Splices are well spaced.
    Tread is 13mm

    So first trip. 2330k with 300km threw the high country.. Loaded to the hilt for the rest.

    I've noticed a fair few chips but the boys reckon that's the price of the high country..

    But something that I have noticed is the rears have worn 1.5mm already!!!
    They are soft but dam..

    Will keep they update happening
    Cheers

    My Maxxis ATs are crap. They grip really well on road, fine on dirt and rocks and obviously suck in the mud but that's not what they're designed for. They have worn so fast, I've probably done 30k on them and they are over half worn, probably get 50k out of them if that. ATs should last longer than that.

    1.5 mm out of 2500 km is a fair bit.

    Yeah but you saw the tread. Not quite as close as yours, but still not a mud tyre..

    Yea I woukd agree, but what those rears were put threw ain't normal. So will review at 5000k and see how it's all going at the first rotation..

    So I'm at 3500km now on them and I've noticed the tread has hardened up 10 fold. So hopefully they slow down..
    Haven't meassured yet, I'll still wait till 5000k..
